House By The Shore Shares Your Beach House Dreams

Fake it until you make it!  You’ve heard it before and we believe in it completely.  So what is a coastal décor boutique doing saying it?  We believe that if you can’t have that house by the shore yet, you can fake it until you make it there!  There’s no reason why you can’t bring a little beach to you no matter where you live. 


Coastal Lifestyle

It is what most of us yearn for, after all, what is more relaxing than lounging  on a comfy outdoor furniture with sand between your toes, the wind in your hair and an ice cold margarita in hand with not a care in the world.  Once you’ve soaked up enough sun for the day you meander back to your beautifully furnished and little slice of heaven you call your house by the shore; you pause to think for just a moment about how blessed you truly are as you gaze upon the beauty of what you have created. 


With a smile on your face you whisk into a luxurious bath for a quick shower before whipping up an elegant dinner in the kitchen.  Friends will be there soon – you always have a full house because you’re known for your coastal entertaining.  Once the evening is done, there’s nothing left to do but call it a night and you’re off to your stunning coastal bedroom for your beauty sleep before you wake and do it all over again the next day. 


Sounds like a dream doesn’t it?

For some it is and for some, it is just another day in paradise.  Our point is you can bring a little bit of that coastal feeling (almost sounds like a song doesn’t it?)  into your home anywhere, even if you live in the frozen tundra.  Whether you’re a dreamer and planning ahead by slowly collecting pieces for the future or you’re already there at the shore, we promise to delight you with the most beautiful coastal furniture and décor we can find!  We personally curate our collection to ensure you find the style and quality you’re looking for.


You’re in for a treat!

We promise!  From our distinctive collection of coastal inspired furniture to our charming gifts for beach lovers, we’ve sought out the best of the best.  Many of our items are made in the USA which we’re proud of and you can feel good about.  Some of our products are custom made just for you when you order them (so know they may not be on your doorstep tomorrow, but they will be worth the wait!). 


Here is our recommendation for the best experience in our store.  Turn on a little Jimmy Buffett, crank up the blender and lock the door to keep the interruptions away.  We’ll sweep you into a coastal paradise of shopping that will delight your senses.  All you have to do is quit reading this and start shopping!



If you’re going to shop with us, you should know there are four beach rules we live by!

  • Build sandcastles.
  • Soak up the sun.
  • Relax and unwind.
  • Ride the waves.


We believe these translate into rules for everyone to live by. 

  • If you stop build sandcastles you learn to share and have fun.  Because what fun is it to build one by yourself?
  • Soak up the sun – we’re all short on vitamin D and too fat.  Get outside more people!
  • Relax and unwind – should speak for itself.  We’re too uptight and attached to electronic devices.  Take a break and breathe – preferably salt air.
  • Ride the waves - you can take charge and lead your life or the alternative is to be pulled along.  We don’t think that is much fun. 


We hope you agree, life is just too short to do anything else!  Oh and if you love these rules as much as we do, you’ve got to have a set of these glasses.


Oh . . . and we almost forgot.
