Our first Beach Cottage Home Tour video was so well received that I decided to do a follow up video highlighting some of the most asked questions many of you had AND include a few more details that I hadn't covered in the first tour.
If you missed the first tour, be sure to watch it below since it shows more detail of the house as a whole and yard!

I grew up in San Diego and wonder what part of the city are you in. Folks lived on Front St overlooking the airport, Rueben E. Lee, harbor. Uncle lived in Mission Hills. Husband's office was in LaJolla Shores. I now live in the desert, miss the ocean every day.
I am curious for your backsplash tile how did you order or is there a showroom near you? I love that color and style and have not been able to find exactly what I want in any style store near me. I looked on the walker zanger website but no luck? Thanks!
Your home is beautiful, love your design. I live in Montana grew up in Newport Beach. About how far are you from the beach? And, do you take the kids to the beach regularly? It would be nice if you did a beach video.
Love how your home decor gives almost a mermaid grotto. Like when Ariel collected so many beautiful gadgets and gizmos. Although, yours are MUCH more beautifully stylish and gives a very warm "home-y" vibe. LOVE IT!
Ashlyn, I just threw up a question, but I also wanted to say that your house is just lovely - and you are inspiring! Your style really speaks to me - but is also loved your intro to the first video where you said that where we live isn't the most important thing, but that God wants us to find joy in our homes.
+L Porter not really. I'm able to get most all things out w bleach and a magic eraser. I did leave my cast iron on it the other night and I'm still working to get out a tiny bit of a rust ring but I'm determined to get it out! It's barely noticeable but still... :) definitely much easier than marble.
Heey ashlyn carter, you have got a great eye for interior design, I have copied the color grege from you for my bedroom from part one, and I really love your living room with that beautiful stuff on the top of TV. I guess I am gonna design one for me too :). By the way I am from Morocco and I immediately subsricbed to your channel as soon as I watched your beach cottage home tour I.
HI Ashlyn! I love your videos and your style. I've been wanting to redo my inside of my home forever but I am renting so I never seem to get around to it but your videos have inspired me to have my furniture painted and get my home looking beautiful. I live in Orange County and wanted to visit some of the vintage stores you go to in San Diego. Can you tell me the names of the stores so I can find them? Thanks so much!! Keep up the great videos!!! Alisa
Oops!, I hit send by mistake. I love how you have decorated your home. It's cozy & so pretty & relaxing. And while you have very pretty decoration, nothing looks cluttered. I told my husband yesterday, "we r not taking our dining chairs! They r big & clunky + I'm very petite 4'11" (our daughter too 😹) and I'm always bumping into them & getting bad bruises! I LOVE the chairs at your dining house. I will be looking for something similar! In my head we r friends and go shopping & such ( now I just sound creepy, lol) I would like to see how to see how the table was made. My husband is pretty talented, I'm sure he could do it. Thanks for another house tour & enjoy you're day 😃
I just love that you did a second house tour!! I commented in your last video that we will be moving to SLO in about 18 months. I have found our house. (New build currently, but I'm pretty sure "someone will be moving at the time) my husband, our daughter & I agree on the house, style & location AND I found one for less then we originally had budgeted for. God is moving us along, my husband had been up there for going on 5 years & our family needs to be in one place.
For the most part, I did have the overall vision. The things I struggle with most is the decor. I usually know the vision and style/feel I like...but I have a hard time making decisions. I like a deal, and I like finding unique pieces so sometimes that takes a while and stalls me up! Thanks for watching and your kind words!
I would love to see a DIY table. I moved to San Diego two years ago and I am struggling to find local vintage stores. I found a few in little Italy but it mostly Danish style 1950s. Could you share some of your local favorites?

Silicon Valley Pakistani-American by the Numbers:
There are 35,000 Pakistani-born Muslims in San Francisco Bay Area, or 14% of the 250,000 Muslims who call the Bay Area home, according to the study. Bay Area Muslim community constitutes 3.5 percent of the area’s total population and is one of the highest concentrations of Muslims in the country.
As of 2013, South Asian Muslims, including Pakistanis, have the highest income levels, with nearly half (49%) of them having a household income above $100,000. In comparison, those groups with the lowest proportion of household incomes above $100,000 were Hispanic Muslims (15%), Afghans (10%), and African American Muslims (10%).
The Bay Area Muslim community is very diverse in terms of race and ethnicity:
South Asians (30%)

Based on the survey findings, the majority of Muslims live in the following three counties:
and Contra Costa (12%)
Thousands of Pakistan-born techies are working at Apple, Cisco, Google, Intel, Oracle and hundreds of other high-tech companies from small start-ups to large Fortune 500 corporations. Pakistani-Americans are contributing to what Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee describe as "The Second Machine Age" in a recent book with the same title.
