As you already know I have a weakness for small and simple cottages, but I couldn’t help but fall in love with this beach cottage in Old Greenwich, Connecticut. The cottage is located close to the water and has some coastal influence. Honestly speaking, this place feels more like a year-round house, but that’s very normal for the area. What made me really like this beach cottage was how sophisticated certain rooms felt, while others were more inviting and simpler, making this a balanced and harmonious home to live in.
The formal rooms are decorated in deeper hues, making them the perfect place to entertain in style and the casual rooms show you’re close to the water with softer pallets and coastal decor.
I hope you feel inspired and enjoy seeing this beach cottage.
I’m not sure what I love more, the shoes or the decor!
The living room feels very cozy with this dark color. To balance it, the designer added white baseboards and lighter accessories.
Tailored chairs always bring elegance to a room. I especially like how feminine and sleek these are.
Notice the high gloss paint on the walls. They add some depth and mystery to this small room.
A small accessory reminds you’re in a coastal cottage.
This pillow is edgy! I love it!
I like seeing softer, calmer dining rooms. They always feel very inviting and comfortable.
The brighter side of the house starts with a sunburst mirror.
This is a classic white kitchen with a modern touch. The stunning light fixture is called “Sorenson 18 Lantern”. It’s often recommended by interior designers, but you can also find more affordable options here.
The light fixture (Arteriors Home4 Light Beatty Oval Chandelier) was customized by the designer by adding a grosgrain ribbon on the shade.
Small but very comfy! The interesting coffee table is from Oomph.
Remember to mix your pillows. They should have colors that complement each other, but they can have different designs/patterns. Be creative and reinvent your living space.
Don’t you just love window-seats? I can’t get enough of them. The runner is called is “Bleadon” and is by Stark.
Feminine, elegant and oh, so calming… Bench is by Jan Showers.
Do you have plans for today? The kids are going back to school and things are going back to normal after the holidays. I know that sometimes we, as parents, can’t wait to have the kids back to school so we can have quiet time around the house, be able to work, hear nothing… I know that feeling sometimes, but I must say that I wish I could keep the kids with me at all times. Don’t get me wrong, I get tired of the noise, but at the same time I’m the happiest when they’re right here, with me. Their voice is like air for me. 🙂
Now, you excuse me because I need to run to the doctor to take the stitches off of my finger and I’m not very comfortable with the idea… to be very honest, I’m freaking out!!! LOL
Talk to you tomorrow.
PS: Thank you all for the great wishes. You’re the best!
