A Beach Side Cottage

Weather worn surfaces, wicker and beachy accents make this adorable 1912 beach side cottage in California a perfect place to call home! The only thing separating this family from the beach is the sidewalk in front of the house.. It is  an easy breezy carefree home that uses fabrics and rugs that are durable and chic that will hold up to the beach chic lifestyle.Mix in some vintage pieces, and some antiques and you have a perfect cottage.










                                            The Dutch front door is charming!!

      The white washed brick mellows the mood. I really like the coral placed in the planter
      on the fireplace.
                                  Such a cozy bedroom! Can't you just hear the ocean?



                                                      A beautiful waterfront view!



I love the planters above the sink, with the numbers on them. I have been wanting to do this, and put the dates of each one of my kids birthdays on them!

The tray by the stove is a great space saving idea, especially in a small cottage kitchen,holding  all your kitchen "goodies" together. I just recently did this.

                          No beach side cottage would be complete with out White bead boarding.


                               The relaxed dining room table with the wicker chairs, Soo great!
