Located in the beach town of Marblehead, Ma, this coastal cottage if filled with inspiring coastal interiors that lead towards a very comforting shabby-chic style.

Designed by Molly Frey Design, this is the kind of cottage that feels simple yet tailored and ready to embrace anyone that enters this home.

Take a look at this special cottage and tell me if it doesn’t make you relaxed just looking at these images… this is how you want to live!

  Isn’t this cottage adorable? I love seeing homes that are done just right! Nothing feels bare or overly decorated here… everything is calm and quiet. Don’t we like to feel that way when we open the door of our home?

I’m off today to buy (gosh, do we ever stop “buying things?! LOL) some snacks, backpacks, clothing and other things like that for the kids. My two older ones will start school soon and I want to have everything ready for it. It will be a busy day!

What do you have planned for today? Whatever you have to do, wherever you need to go, I hope you go feeling Blessed and safe.

Big hugs to you all and we’ll talk again tomorrow! :)
