Located in Florida and currently being featured on the pages of Cottages and Bungalows magazine, this classic shingle style home features interiors that are effortlessly chic. With a timeless coastal flair, the acclaimed interior designer Andrew Howard from Andrew Howard Interior Design created a home that certainly will stand the test of the time. How? He effortlessly incorporated classic furniture pieces with classic colors like blue and white while using some surprising elements that are sure to grab your attention.
Here’s what the designer had to say about how to bring blue and white into our homes: “Blue is such a natural fit for a coastal home. Varying shades can be seen throughout the house and by doing so it makes each room feel unique. It is a natural palette for me not only in coastal homes, but it is really applicable in almost any climate because nothing is more classic and timeless than blue and white. Trust your decorator when they tell you it is never going out of style.”
And who are we to argue with that?! Take a look and you will see that this home truly feels comfortable, classic and truly inviting.

What a happy home! I guess the winter really makes me crave for more color and now that I’ve taken off all of my Christmas decor, it’s time to buy some new accessories to change the feel of my main spaces. I need to start shopping for some pillows and comfy throws! I am bringing some sunshine into my home even if the sun is not shinning out there. Oh, fresh flowers also always bring a great energy to our spaces… keep that in mind next time you’re out and about. 🙂
Thank you for being here today, my friends. May you have a day filled with Light & Blessings!
