This summer we’ve spent some time at one of our favourite places to be, the beach. It’s quite a drive from our house though and on our last visit Littlelish came up with a good idea. She would collect lots and lots of shells for us to try and recreate a beach in our own back garden. You see we are lucky in that our new house has a large garden with quite a few hidden areas. These hidden areas are a little overgrown at the moment but once we’ve cleared them it could be the perfect spot for our own back garden beach. Ok it’s never going to quite live up to the real thing but imagine going down to the bottom of the garden to have a magical breakfast in your beach hut or chilling out with a magazine and your feet up while the little ones play in the sand and with the shells, even organising a romantic dinner for two for your loved one on your own private little beach! Sounds heavenly to me!!

I’ve entered a competition from who make beautiful and very reasonably priced summer houses, outside offices, log cabins and sheds. We’ve always discussed the idea of having one in the garden but can’t decide on who it would belong to. Would it be my home office / craft room or my loves gym / fitness space? Well this way it can be for us all to share… ok maybe it is a little bit more mine, I just love the beach so much!

To enter the competition I had to follow Waltons on Pinterest and set up a board called ‘My Dream Garden ________ ‘ I found loads of gorgeous inspiration for my beach hut including decor and colours and ideas of how to create a backyard beach. Check out my entry here:

Follow ♥ Lish Concepts ♥’s board My dream garden beach hut on Pinterest.
