About

We make nautical beach decor, coastal farmhouse furniture, towel racks, personalized prints, unique home decor & gifts for all occasions & everyday life on the beautiful Outer Banks, NC

Our story began when 2 starry eyed 20-somethings met 33 years ago. She dreamed of living and working by the sea; he grew up going to the lake and mountains. It was love at first sight! While serving in churches for over 27 years, and raising our 2 daughters, Rita continued designing cards & gifts for others, while Tommy started crafting unique home décor from a stack of barn wood from Rita's grandfather's farm! Since starting our etsy shop here, formerly known as "riricreations" in Nov. 2008, our business has grown beyond our wildest imagination.

We took a huge leap of faith in 2014, (in our early 50's!) and moved to the Outer Banks of NC (where our extended family had a tiny beach box house), and we opened our bricks and mortar store Beach House Dreams™. Etsy has been a perfect fit for taking Rita's passion for decorating and giving personalized custom gifts online, and afforded Tommy a venue for preserving and passing along heirloom quality handcrafted wood and metal furniture and décor. But, Beach House Dreams has given us the opportunity to also work with and empower 30+ other artists and help support their families too. We still create, every day, but our Beach House Dreams store carries retail items that are high quality yet affordable, (sometimes hard to find here) in addition to 30+ artist's creations! In fact, some of our custom prints and furniture designs are so popular that we now have to limit how often we offer them for sale, as they're time consuming to create.

These last 10 years have been an exciting journey, and we can't wait to see with the next 10, 20, and 30 years bring. Check out our newest services: weddings and home staging. You can find us on Facebook: Beach House Dreams, and Instagram: BeachHouseDreamsOBX, and let us know what you think. We are so thankful for your ongoing support. We're beyond thrilled when our handmade and carefully curated retail items become part of your home and special celebrations: making Beach House Dreams™ a reality every day!

We hope to see you soon, and thanks again for helping make our Beach House Dreams™, and your Beach House Dreams™ come true every day.

Frequently asked questions
Do you take custom orders?

Yes, almost all of our orders for painted towel racks, furniture and prints are custom orders. Most painted listings give you a drop down menu to select your colors and let you choose if your items are distressed or not.

When will my order ship?

Due to the volume of orders we are processing, and since almost everything we make and sell is custom made, the usual turnaround time is 10 business days or 2 weeks before we ship your order. Occasionally the time could be less- contact us with questions about your particular order.

I need my order sooner; can you help me?

Depending on how many orders we are currently processing, there may be times when we can ship your order in less than 2 weeks. Contact us with your question, and we'll do what we can to help you.

What info do you need from me to customize my order, and how do I provide this information to you?

Most of our painted listings have a drop down menu where you select paint colors and if you want your items distressed or not. If you are purchasing a painted item, that has multiple hooks, or multiple colors, you can:
1. put your choices in the message to seller section as you check out.
2. send a conversation message to us when you purchase.
For print orders, the process is:
1. put your choices in the message to seller as you check out.
2. send a conversation message to us when you purchase.
If you forget to give us your color or custom details, we cannot process your order until you send us that info.

Custom and personalized orders

Please double check the personalization info and custom details you send us, as well as your shipping address on file for etsy- we ship to the address etsy provides us. If your item is defective, we will of course replace it for you.

What if I forgot to send you all the info you need to start my order?

We will contact you via an etsy conversation if we have a question about your personalization or if you forgot to include all the info we need. We strongly recommend that you have an email address you check regularly linked to your etsy account for this purpose. If you do not check etsy convos regularly, or have a current email address you check regularly linked to your account, once we have attempted to reach you, we can not proceed with starting to work on your order until you get back to us.

Do you have a bricks and mortar store?

Yes, we opened Beach House Dreams in Kill Devil Hills NC (on the Outer Banks) 4 years ago. In that store we sell the items we make, retail home décor, gifts and accessories, as well as the creations of approximately 30 other local artists as well. We are open year round at least 6 days a week, and would love for you to visit. We're at
402 South Croatan Highway Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948
(252) 715-4454

Do you offer wholesale items to other stores and businesses?

If you have a retail or furniture or home décor store we would love to talk with you about possibly carrying some of our signature unique products in your store. Contact us here, and we'll get back to you asap.

If you are a designer, decorator, home stager or contractor and would like to feature some of our products, we would love to hear from you. We've worked with quite a few designers and some retail stores throughout the US, and we enjoy working with other companies. Contact us so we can talk about the possibilities.
