Fall is a wonderful season and I’m enjoying seeing the leaves changing. Today I woke up, fed my kids and drove them to school. We live by the sea, so as soon I get on the street I see the ocean and today I felt like it was giving me a gift. The cold morning was being transformed, the water was covered with fog and the sun was just being born once again. I wish I had a camera to register that moment. It was a fall morning, where the air is crisp, the water fights its temperature and everything changes.

This cottage of the week reminds me of the changes about the weather. I know that most people don’t like rain and I totally understand that, but I must confess that I enjoy rainy days. I enjoy being able to to curl up with a blanket and a cup of cocoa and sit by the window and see the rain falling. There’s silence in the beautiful sound of water falling. I can imagine being in this cottage and feeling the calmness of a rainy day. It would feel relaxed and quiet. And sometimes, that’s all we need.



You’ll see many beautiful antiques and flea market finds in this cottage.

White Walls

The white walls, ceilings and floors add a Scandinavian feel to the cottage.

Eating Area

I really like the idea of having these benches around the table. Great for a small space.


Flowers can bright things up even in a rainy day.


I adore how classic it looks!


What about a cup of tea? Sweet flea market find.

A Better Cup

Ok, let’s do this. We keep that cute old flea market as a display and use this china for our tea. Agreed?


I don’t have a sunroom at home and every time I see one I wish I had it. I think I’d spend so much time in there. Isn’t this one a perfect one?

Work & Fun

I’d put my computer on that adorable desk and work from there.


I love how delicate these plates make this room feel.


Monograms make anything you have feel more personal. This pillow is so pretty.


Simple and beautiful.

Rainy Day

The gray day and sea. Life is a search to find beauty in everything.

Cottage and Grass

Very natural.


So sweet.


Maybe we’ll seat here some other day.


This bench is so beautiful. Notice the curves.




Very pretty.

Where the Sky Meets the Ocean

It’s beautiful even in a rainy day.

After the Storm

Bring a blanket and an empty mind. Sit and hear what the breeze is whispering in your ear.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this cottage. I think it a place of calmness.

How are you doing today? Everything is good? I’m doing well around here. I’ve been busy, cleaning our closets, especially a toy closet we have. I need to organize a few things before I try to relax and wait for my baby’s birth. I’m also planing on washing all the baby clothing we bought. I love the way baby detergent smells! It’s so sweet. I remember washing my kids clothing when they were babies and I can’t believe I’m doing this again. It’s surreal and so wonderful.

I hope you’re enjoying your life right now. I hope you’re in a good place, feeling good not only about everything that’s around you, but especially for being who and how you are.

Have a beautiful day, rainy or not!

  1. Luciane…love this! If I had a beach house this is exactly how I would want it to look…so understated, but cozy and elegant and then to spend a rainy day in it, how wonderful. This was beautiful!

  2. Luciane, what a lovely cottage. I’m in love with the tile behind the sink in the kitchen. all the whites with the lovely blue accent, through out… all just so pretty.

  3. michele@hellolovelyinc said,

    what gorgeous photos to begin my day, L. thank you for these delicious ones.

    what i love about a rainy day is how i can turn on all my lamps and get the lighting just right, all cozy like.

    savor these last few weeks of nesting and dreaming!

    oi LUCIANE

    Que lugar adorável, as imagens da casa com o mato, os bancos branquinhos, as flores do campo, tudo muito lindo. Do interior da casa a foto que mais amei foi da parte da pia com os belíssimos azulejos em azul e branco.
    Deveria ser muito bom ficar ali despreocupada..rs
    Que delicia morar perto do mar, qualquer hora faz umas fotos pra ente ver esse dia nascer.
    Ah, cheirinho de Bebê é tão gostoso. Sempre que vou na seção de roupas do supermercado, não resisto e tenho que olhar as camisetinhas de algodão de bebê…rs
    Daí me pergunto porque estou ali olhando?

    bjus amiga, muita paz e amor pra sua vida!

    This is beautiful Luciane. I love everything about this one… and if my umbrella will stay open in the rain, I’m ok with it too 😉

    Oh my! To be surrounded by such beautiful, feminine things! What a treat…although I think I’d need a cozier couch.

  9. Marianne {Style For Living} said,

    So much charm packed in to this darling cottage! Love so many things about it, especially the dining area with the benches. Happy to hear you are doing well. xo

    Hi lovely friend. Don’t go overboard now…. I used to vaccum clean the ceilings the last few weeks prior! Talk about crazy nesting instincts…

    Lovely summer home! Must be Scandinavian. Those lovely Royal Copenhagen plates on the plate rack and all that white give it away!

    I am back from a whirlwind trip to CA. Brought no computer with me and it was soooo nice! (:

    Warm hugs to you,

    Hello friend,

    It’s good to be busy. I’m glad you’re doing well.
    I’m great, just became an auntie on Saturday. My nephew is so cute! Can’t wait to go to Brazil and meet him.

    I love the cottage color on the outside. Is that black paint? Love the sunroom & the eating area.

    Have a fantastic week.

    Luciane, I love this post today. I love all the interior and exterior details you’ve included. This cottage is so charming and livable with plenty of style of it’s own.

  15. Haley @ Cardigan Junkie said,

    I love the look and feel of old monogrammed linens like the ones in the 13th photo! So pretty… maybe one day I’ll have a beach house to decorate 🙂

  16. Barbara@TheTreasuredHome.com said,

    Everyone should live at least a day in a place like this! How nice it would be to wake up here, hearing the ocean. Enjoy your place by the sea! I guess we all need to enjoy where the moment takes us!

    Everything I envision in a quaint Scandinavian cottage – that incredible deck, the delicate monograms, the simple tea cup…all of it! Lovely!

    I am in love with the clock,
    I promise I’ll get one when our farmhouse is finished.

    Their china collection are lovely too.
    And the outdoor scenery is spectacular.
