Since I live about 40 minutes from the beach, I have always embraced the easy comfortable coastal style. I love seeing the outdoors from every room in our house...lots of windows and French doors. Everything I buy for the house has a lot of thought put into it..not an impulse buyer by any means. I will study and peruse websites to get just the right thing. Pottery Barn, Coastal Living and Better Homes and Gardens are favorite inspirations.
