With a unique attachment to their homes, coastal dwellers and their homes exude a certain warmth and beauty found nowhere else.

Beach House Happy couldn't be more aptly named! The photos are beautiful and the stories are interesting and engaging. There's a reason people drawn to living by the water. If you don't understand and haven't felt that way before please buy this book and give it a read. Or if you must, stop by my place and I'll lend you it. Yes, it's that important. I'll be buying a few more for friends and family and I know they'll love it just as much as I do!

Beach House Happy gave me so many great ideas! The book itself is beautiful (well-bound, nice paper), the photographs are stunning, and the stories are lovely. The author does a nice job explaining how you can bring that happy, coastal vibe to any home.And you don't have to own a beach house to love it - I'd give it as a gift to any beach-lover, period.In short: An inspiring, relaxing read. 5 stars!

Bought this for two friends who live by the beach. They both love it. Inspiring photos. Felt happy just flicking through it.

I just ordered this book from after seeing a copy yesterday at a bookstore at nearly double the price. I always loved to read the monthly editorials by Antonia when she was the editor at Coastal Living magazine. This book is large and there are very nice pictures on nearly every page. Not just a knockoff from the picture stories they used at Coastal Living magazine. The pictures are different with new commentary by Antonia, a skilled writer and a veteran of "beach living". If you liked Coastal Living magazine, you will love this book.

Thanks, Gov875! Your review was spot on and the reason I was compelled to purchase Beach House Happy in the first place. It is a lovely book and of the other beachy books I recently bought, this one is hands down my favorite. The two-page photo on pages 44 and 45 is so daydream-worthy. I can feel the salt air just looking at it.

Bought this at Costco on a lark. Once I looked at it at home and saw all the inspiring ideas, I was super glad I purchased it. Then my sister-in-law, who is a decorator, came to visit and fell in love with the book. I went back to Costco to get her a copy and they were sold out. So I gave her my copy and ordered a new one from . It is on my coffee table and I love looking at it. And my sister-in-law is already gathering rocks to paint and recreating one of the wall sculptures. This book is a winner!

I have only read a few chapters and I am enjoying it. The one issue that I have with it is the size. It is a huge book and a bit awkward to handle. Makes a great coffee table book!

It's so relaxing to look through this book and that's what I was hoping for.
