Music -> Decor: Beach House

I created a bit of a challenge for myself on this one, but this is the band I've been listening to on repeat lately so I felt like they were the most worthy of a long overdue Music to Decor post. The band is Beach House, and the song below is the first single off of their most recent album, "Bloom." 

Every time I listen to this music, it evokes a feeling of both wanderlust and sentimentality. Hopefulness even. I don't know if I need to just get a hold of my emotions or what, but sometimes songs can make me feel like I experienced something that I really didn't. Like, this song brings up memories of a road trip I took through the cornfields of Nebraska with my college boyfriend. Except I didn't have a college boyfriend and I've never been to Nebraska. And before I dig myself into a deeper weirdo hole, I'll just say that this band puts me in total daydream mode so maybe I shouldn't have listened to it at work all day. Here is the song "Myth:"

Isn't the song dreamy and hopeful, almost magical? I get the same feeling from the rooms and decor below (even though I kind of cheated because most of the effect is due to the lighting... and the messy beds). I told you it was a challenge!

So... are you a Beach House fan (yet)? 
If not, become one this weekend! Have a great one :)


  1. Oh my goodness, I'd love to live in any one of those places. There's no way I would be able to make my apartment look as ethereal as some of those but maybe it's a cue for me to start trying :)

  2. It's funny whenever I google beach house, the band comes up and I've never listened to them. Enjoyed their music and LOVED all of the gorgeous images. Happily following your blog!
