lighthouse house





Have you seen this lighthouse house? The owners built it as a guesthouse for family and friends on their property in New Zealand, alongside a boatshed with spectacular views overlooking Golden Bay. 
I just love it and the cute way it's been simply furnished and decorated.




Inspired by American lighthouses, they worked with an architect to plan their design. 





A sunny spot to hang out in a hammock chair. The beautiful rag rugs and patchwork quilts on the beds were made by the owner.








Not sure I could live here permanently with all the stairs.








Would you like to live here?

  3. How fun! Beautiful decor and color scheme also.

    When we lived in Jamaica, the nearest house to us was a tower built by a Scottish lord. His mother in law always wanted a tower to live in so he built her one. It was rented out much of the year and friends invited us for parties.
