You should never complicate your interiors and that’s even more important when it comes to cottages.
This coastal cottage, once titled as ” Coastal Living Idea Cottage” for Coastal Living magazine, was beautifully designed by interior designer Tracey Rapisardi and it’s a good example of how beach cottages should be done — with a relaxed and comfortable approach. Uncomplicated is always best, even when it comes to interiors!
I am sharing many of the paint colors used in this cottage. These are very soothing colors that are great on walls and even on furniture. Take note!

Crisp White Paint Color

I am seriously wanting a craft room lately. Aren’t they great? Here, the designer took advantage of nooks created by the eaves of the house, placing work tables underneath the windows and using the abundant storage space to hide extra supplies. Creative!
The designer turned the bonus room above the garage into a smart and practical craft room.
Turquoise Paint Color
This is a great, subtle turquoise paint color: “Seaside Retreat Summer Sorbet SR1011”.
Take a minute to enjoy life…
Isn’t this cottage just perfect? I love the color palette and how simple it feels. It’s the kind of place you want to spend your summers at.
I hope you had a great time here today. Thank you so much for your comments and emails yesterday. I was to a point that I needed to open my heart to someone and I knew I could do it here, with you guys.
I am off now to clean and organize some things around the house. I know… not fun, but I love the feeling of when you’re done and you take a look around the house and everything is clean and smelling good! 🙂
Have a happy and safe day, my friends.
