Located in 30A, Seagrove Florida, and designed by JoAnn McVicker from JoAnn Regina Home, this is the smallest cottage that is part of a triplex, measuring only 1125 sq ft.

Here, the designer explains how you can live large in a small space: “The home is located in Inlet Beach FL. It’s a beach town in NW Florida and the homeowners have been vacationing here for 15 years. They decided to buy a little piece of paradise all their own. Gulf of Mexico is pure heaven! This is a beach town…I live here and love it!

The homeowner wanted a soft peaceful coastal feel, and that was perfect for this small space. The cottage has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a spacious laundry closet, but not really a room. The rest is the great room, living, dining and kitchen. The living and dining space is only 9 ft of area to furnish. My approach was to keep the entire home with one clean flow. The paint colors throughout are the same; Sherwin Williams Alabaster on the walls and Sherwin Williams Reflective White on ceiling and trim.

I wanted the ceiling to bounce as much light from those doors and windows as possible. The crown molding is wide to bring the eye up and to exaggerate the height and space of the room. Ceilings are 10 ft. I kept the crown molding the same color as the ceiling in order to keep the room feeling large. I also used a flowing open weave soft linen ( I call them almost-not-there) drapes. I had them hung by tabs to keep a casual island feel. I didn’t want the formal pleated look and not a pole pocket that I think looks bunched and messy when open.

The great room has one entire wall with 2 sets of French doors and windows along the outside wall that leads to the balcony patio. The kitchen is on the other side and I kept it white also so it wouldn’t go cave like on the far side from the windows.”

Take a look and you will see that even a very small home can feel open and beautiful. Also, make sure to take note of the sources shared by the designer!

 

Beach Cottage with Small Neutral Coastal Interiors

This living room is a mere 10 feet wide but lives much larger. The designer used soft colors and airy fabrics to give breathing room. The door on the wall is a salvaged piece from New Orleans and holds a horizon for the birds in flight. The long console is made from reclaimed antique wood and adds storage space for the homeowners entertaining cache. Paint color is Sherwin Williams SW7008 Alabaster.

Small ottoman is rope and from Lilian August collection. The designer purchased while on a trip to NYC.

Designer: The back wall with the door hanging on the wall is a small alcove about 20″ deep.  I chose the reclaimed wood console, 1 for entertaining and 2 for extra storage for the homeowners extra glasses and entertaining supplies. I found it in California. I did have to have the 90″ console brought over the patio and through the double doors due to the weight of bringing it up the stairs.

Defining Small Spaces

Small interior ideas. The living and dining room flow as one. We used the rug to define the living room and kept the dining clean and open for stress free entertaining. Large art is by a local artist Lori Drew. Her soft textures created by laying oil paint and cold wax are the perfect pop of soothing color shared by both rooms.

 Coffee Table

Coffee Table Decor. I needed a skinny coffee table for the small space so I went for a surf board shape to keep to the coastal feel. It's a metal base, antique mirrored top to reflect more light!

Designer: In the dining room, I purposely kept the furniture open and airy to keep as much sun shining through as possible. I like the mix of bamboo in the chairs and the wood of the table for interest. I chose not to use a rug in the dining to keep that space open. I chose one large piece of art so it could be shared with both spaces.

Table and chairs are new from a local shop.

Lighting

Chandelier. Oyster shells and rough cut crystals along with the copper accents make this chandelier the perfect finishing touch! The chandelier Is by "Low Country Originals" with crystals for sparkle and oyster shells. I chose an open designed chandelier for more visual space. #LowCountryOriginals #Chandelier JoAnn Regina Home

Small Kitchen Inspo

Small Kitchen Inspiration. The cabinets are wood and the designer painted them just a slightly warm white; Sherwin Williams SW 6385 Dover White. The backsplash is glass subway. Subway, to keep it casual but glass for the sparkle!

The kitchen is light, bright and simple but roomy. Glass subway tile backsplash for a little sparkle and the slightly richer color and detail in the granite countertop holds it all together.

Designer: The backsplash is glass subway. Subway, to keep it casual but glass for the sparkle!

Kitchen Stools

White Granite Countertop. Kitchen with Durable and non-porous White Granite Countertop. Cambridge White Granite. Countertops are a white granite with just a little gray to hold all the whites together. The designer chose the metal counter stools so they could pull up a seat coming home for lunch from the beach. They are perfect for wet bathing suit...someplace to sit without changing. (I wanted the space to be beautiful and livable). White Granite Countertop.

Designer: The master bedroom is clean and simple. I added a poster bed and marble and metal side tables to create an open visual space. Pom poms are the defining texture here and you can find them in the bedding, the throw and pillows! I used the rug mostly for interest because you can see directly in the master when entering the home at the top of the stairs. If you close the master bedroom door, it makes the space seem closed in, so I needed the master to be beautiful and a feast for the eyes in order for the door to stay open. Drapes are a white lined linen. I chose the chartreuse from the living space for accent color to keep a clean flow into this room.

 The art above the bed is another piece by Lori Drew.

Pillows

Black and White Stripped Pillow. The master bedroom is all about the texture with pompoms being the defining theme. Black and White Stripped Pillow. Black and White Stripped Pillows. Black and White Stripped Pillow. #BlackandWhiteStrippedPillow JoAnn Regina Home

Pops of chartreuse are repeated in the master for easy flow from the living room. Paint color is Sherwin Williams Alabaster.

 Designer: The dresser is simple but sits on an iron base because I needed another texture besides all wood in these.

Mirror

Designer: The tiny hallway to the guest room needed something but it was way to small for furniture. I chose the African Juju hat ( bought in NYC at a street market) and the Egret was found in a local shop. It’s painted wood. I love the fun and textures of this little vignette and it’s seen from the living space.

Guest Bedroom

Small Bedroom. Small Bedroom Decor. The guest bedroom was designed for a soothing effect with greys, blues and white decor. The designer found the antique headboard (formally a footboard) at a local shop. Small Bedroom Bedding Ideas. Neutral Small Bedroom. #SmallBedroom #SmallBedrooms #SmallBedroomDecor # BeddingIdeas #NeutralSmallBedroom #NeutralBedroom #SmallBedroom JoAnn Regina Home

Designer: The guest bedroom headboard and cabinet are vintage finds. We spent big in the master so I needed to save the budget! The headboard was $100.00 the cabinet $500.00. These were found at a local shop, Haus of Abood, great place to find these one of a kinds. The room is small, only 10×12 but has lots of windows and a set of French doors…Lots of light!

The side tables are a shiny Silver metal, I needed some sparkle so these were perfect. Lamps are glass, blue and gray and feel liquid.

Vintage Cabinet

Painted Vintage Cabinet. Vintage cabinet features a French Grey paint color on the outside and a Cobalt Blue on the inside shelves #PaintedVintageCabinet #VintageCabinet #Vintagecabinetpaint #FrenchGrey #paintcolor #CobaltBlue #insideshelves JoAnn Regina Home

The designer found this restored antique cabinet again at Hous of Abood in Seacrest, Florida. The vintage cabinet features a French Grey paint color on the outside and a Cobalt Blue on the inside shelves and the designer filled it with the homeowner’s coral collection. The bottom section is used as the dresser for a dual purpose piece that’s as useful as it is beautiful.

Designer: I used a strong blue for accent in the cabinet, art and lamps…much like the deep blue in the water here. I kept the bed linens and drapes all a soft warm white, just like the sand we have on the beach…

Hello, my beautiful friends! Isn’t this cottage beautiful? This is the kind of color palette that I would never get tired of!

There’s so many great things ahead for all of us, my friends… but this is how life really unfolds itself. We must feel, we must believe in all of the great things that will happen to us. This is the first step for our goals and dreams to come true!

Have a Blessed week, everyone.
