Buy This, Not That — Beach House Edition

Back by popular demand!!  I got so many positive comments on the last edition of “Buy This, Not That,” that I decided to make it a recurring theme.


I just finished The Beach House by Jane Green, which was set in a fabulous estate on Nantucket.  It was a yummy summer read and I was inspired to do a beach house edition of “Buy This, Not That.”  As always, most of these pieces would fit in with just about any decorating style – they are not limited to just a beach house.  Enjoy!
