Modern Cottage Cool

Designer Lindsay Reid decorated her  California Cottage, with cheery colors and an easy relaxed look. Her inspiration ....  her love of the Mediterranean and  books of botanical prints for her color palette.. This is such a light and airy house,that says "welcome".

                                                  The front of the cottage is darling!     

                                                           The color Palette inspiration.


                                                                  Casual Chic

                                                   Love the mixing of the furniture styles.

                                                  Blue and Whire Preppy, with french inspiration.

I am still on my White kick, but lately I really love the coolness of the color Grey with yellow. This is so pretty.This is simple and  chic.
I have Windsor chairs that I am absolutley sick of, this could be a great refresher for them. The Ikat fabric, LOVE!

A sweet dining area with Camillia's.So pretty and the smell...ahhh.

This is beautiful! I am loving the grey and yellow combo too. I love how open the kitchen is too and the fabric on the chairs is great!

That last shot of the ourdoor setting in blue is delightful. Is there a nicer colour? I for one don't think so. Looks like it's somewhere in that most civilised of nations France, which always helps.
I also like the repurposing of those chairs with the covers.
Have a great week
Best Carolyn
