Shame on me for doubting; the Woodline Victorian House kit is growing on me. After a night's sleep and some thinking about the lighthouse, I think it would be a rather nice project. I had a look through my nautical image file, too.
Here are links to a beautiful bed from House and Home and guest beds from Phoebe Howard. This interesting photo from House Beautiful would be an interesting and less traditional way to decorate a dining room. This page from Completely Coastal has so many great options for nautical decorating.
Recreating this staircase would be a challenge, but it would be worth the effort, especially if it had a reading nook like this one from Southern Living.

Yeah, there would be a lot of bashing, but I can now see this...
...as this. Three chimneys! :D

It's still going to have to wait quite a long time...many houses in front of it. So, who knows. ;D But, from the looks of my inspiration photos, I'm going to need a five gallon bucket of white paint.
Wow, love the inspiration pictures!
You have to build this lighthouse. I revoke my previous offer
April - I think Lyssa is going to back you up on that statement.
Well, I guess I can return all the Super Secret Super Spy stuff I got. I was all ready to intercept the package and sneak it back into Brae’s house. ANd, um, YES, I second, third and down the line to infinity, April’s motion.
What great photos!
These photos are so beautiful and inspiring, packed with original details! No wonder you want to have a try with the lighthouse!
Do you make mental lists of your projects before going to sleep too? My mind is full of paint, wallpapers and the like before I start counting sheep!
I love those photos. This would be a gem of a project once completed.
I love the rope twists in the staircase and the boat table. Though I would no doubt walk into the pointy end on a regular basis if I owned it =0)
Oh, yes, I constantly have lists and ideas in my head! I think that boat bar needs a warning light.
Love the inspiration pics! I agree with everyone else, I would love to see you do this project! Here are a couple of links to items I have saved in my favorites that you might also like. :o)

also, http://www.etsy.com/listing/70851875/anchors-aweigh-pendant-dark-antiqued?ga_search_query=anchor - I immediately thought of you when I ran across these :o)
I hope you have a great day!
Ooh, those are great, Jeannette!
I have toured many, many lighthouses and keeper’s houses. It will be a project that will truly speak to me, I am certain.
Brae, the images of nautical settings are very inspiring! Thank you for sharing. Natalia
Don’t know how I missed this post until now?
What an awesome project!
Maybe it could move up to the top of your list? After the Spring Fling, of course. I can’t WAIT to see what you are doing with that one!
Hope you have a great weekend!
It is a bit of a pushy project - I keep running into ideas for it. But, I think you’ll all like the next smaller build.
For a split second I thought the photos of the nautical themed house from was a 1:12 you did in the past (my coffee hadn’t kicked in yet). I was going to lay down and die. Then I figured it out. What a great and fun project that will be! Imagination run wild!
That’s quite a compliment that you think I could pull that off! I am looking forward to this build.
Love the inspiration photos and your target photo. This is exactly what I do, collect images in separate folders for future builds.
I came to the post late from Greg’s post on the GL forum.
I save stuff all the time even if I don’t ever plan to build anything like it - it’s sometimes just nice to browse for creative inspiration in general.
