You may be wondering what Romantic Beach Cottage is…. in my mind it consists of vintage pieces with history; beautifully embellished classics; cottage flowers and vintage-reproductions which all combine together in a lovely and eclectic way. Romantic doesn’t always have to be about ruffles and lace, although that is also a beautiful look. We hope you enjoy this week’s finds!
Much of the beach house’s allure is in its reflection of a simpler way of life, a pared-down existence where the breeze is the housekeeper, the furnishings don’t mind a damp swimsuit, and the most precious treasures are seashells and memories. ~ Mary Emmerling
