Beach Cottage Tour Part 1

Sometimes I have to pinch myself, when I think that I have the opportunity to stay in this place for a couple of months.

I did not decorate this, but it has been decorated with much thought and intelligence for a house that practically sits on the beach.

It has the million dollar views of the Pacific Ocean.

The living room is made for enjoying the views, entertaining, or just relaxing.

The curtains are stationary panels made with a Sun resistant fabric.  The flooring is Bamboo.  The carpet is made up of individual carpet tiles, that are very practical for a room that gets lived in or has pets and children.  If one area gets stained, it is easy to remove and replace.

imageThe woods used in the casegoods, like this buffet, are made from reclaimed wood.

imageThe house has been decorated with a “feel” of the beach, using natural elements, colors of the ocean, and practical accessories that remind us of where we are.

The influence of the Tropical Oasis and Asian influence is present, as well as the love of the water.

The colors of sea and sand and shells…..

Clear glass lamps let the light through, and orchid prints line the walls.

How many of us long for our own comfy cottage in the woods? I know I do! We can make our own comfy cottage, right here, right now, no matter where we live. I'm a mother of two, grandmother of two boys, interior designer who thinks out-of-the-box, up cycler, and interested in just about anything related to living comfortably and finding contentment, connecting with the Great Spirit in the natural world and respect for all beings who walk the earth.
