Today we’re so happy to be able to introduce you to eight of our coastal style home blogging friends who we think you will love!

Coastal Home Bloggers to get to Know

Now that many of us are home and spending more time online, it’s a great opportunity to make connections and discover other like-minded people.

When our friend Jenna at Rain on a Tin Roof (you have to check out her modern eclectic style) suggested we write a blog post about some of our favorite bloggers in our niche, we couldn’t resist!

Over the past few years, as coastal-style bloggers ourselves, we’ve been fortunate to meet other creative women who share our love of the water, shoreline and nature.
