Have you ever dreamed of having a beach cottage where you could go every holiday and spend great moments with the most important people in your life? Imagine building a place where you can choose all the décor, all the details and see it all come to life.

When it was time to decorate, the homeowners of this traditional Nantucket cottage knew they should call Jeannie Balsam LLC. to design their place.

With the designer’s talent, the cottage now features traditional coastal interiors with plenty of great ideas. Take a look at the fabric choices here. They’re full of color and make this home to feel happy, colorful and approachable. And if you’re a fan of Manual Canovas fabrics, this post will be heavenly for you!

Another thing you can’t help but fall in love with is the classic white kitchen with tall cabinets and beautiful lighting. You will want to pin this one!

This traditional coastal cottage has plenty to see and dream about! Are you ready?

Don’t you feel more relaxed after seeing this charming cottage? It’s no secret that I love coastal homes and I am happy to be hired by a wonderful client to work on a her cottage. I will be finalizing some projects for a special client and then, I will start working on this new project. This will be a wonderful home and I hope I can share with you guys after it is built. We will dream big with this one! My client and I have a very similar taste. 🙂

In fact, I am getting many emails from readers that are interested on my online interior design services. I am completely booked right now, but I might be able to schedule some projects for the end of May/June.

Other than working a lot, I am taking care of myself. Do you guys remember that I mentioned last week that I was going to see a homeopathic practitioner? I am so glad I did. I have being having stomach pains for almost a year now and it seems to be getting much better with almost a week of treatment. I feel relived to be honest with you. I was getting worried and this gives me some peace of mind.

How about you guys? Are you feeling good today? I surely hope you do!

Take care of yourselves, my friends and we’ll talk again tomorrow!

Bi hugs to all!

with Love,

    Thank you so much for your comment. I just gave up on coffee… please, don’t tell me I have to give up on bread!! LOL In fact, I am trying to be more careful with what I eat and it is helping.
