It’s Summer, Let’s Celebrate! – Five Design Tips

That’s right, it’s finally Summer! Are you as happy as a clam? I sure am.  It’s time to lighten and brighten our cottage home’s for summertime fun and we’re going to help you celebrate the arrival of our favorite beach season with a little giveaway too!!


Perfect beach cottage decor for summer

Here are 5 of my favorite ways to spruce up

the cottage when summer arrives…


1. Pull up those rugs and leave  your floors bare. Don’t like them bare?  Then why not try some rag rugs or sea grass mats.




2. It’s time to let the sun shine into your cottage! In places where privacy isn’t an issue, remove curtains, valances and leave windows uncovered.  Half curtains and/or lace curtain panels are perfect for bedrooms and baths.



3. Brighten up  your couches and/or chairs with summer slipcovers and accessorize with throw pillows that offer soft floral patterns.

4.  By dressing your beds in light layers of white you instantly provide your room with a summer feeling.  White cotton blankets, white sheets, shams and a pique bedspread all work perfectly during summer.

5.  Put out vases, Mason jars or bottles and fill them with cut flowers every day!

  10. Tracy

    Having been a guest in Jane’s home, I can attest to how bright, cheerful and comfortable it is! Lots of eye candy! Her home showcases her wonderful decorating style and her fabulous artwork.

  11. Tracy

    Great images! I love to add fresh flowers to all my bottles and jars. In #4 I especially love the last image I have always loved white linens on my bed. I keep the windows in my kitchen uncovered as I love the light that comes through them. My tile floors are bare except to sisal mats in front of the entrance doors.

    What a wonderful etsy shop! So many beautiful designs! I love the Life’s a Beach Beachglass Seaglass Bracelet. I added Beach Glass Shop’s store as a favorite on etsy because I see some items for future gift giving.

    I added Beach Glass Shop to My Page’s Favorites on Facebook.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win such a lovely necklace!

    Your work is stunning. This is my favorite color. I would love to win and wear your beautiful creation, it would look lovely against my summer tan.

  13. Marcia

    What beautiful images. So summery and light. The necklace is beautiful too…my favorite shade of blue :)

  14. Cindy Braden

    Oh my gosh, I just love the color of necklace, it is beautiful. I will be more then happy to follow you on your blog and FB, I just love your site, and thanks for the tips. I started out wanting white in the bedroom and I even bought the Shabby Chic White Set, but I wanted to add just a tiny bit of color, soooooo I did and of course I don’t like it. I bleached it thinking it would come right back out, but no. I put just a tiny bit of ecru in it, but it looks more peach then pink. So now I don’t know what I will do:-(

    Thanks for stopping. Have a wonderful rest of the week.
    Love, Light, & Harmony ~ CindyLew

    I liked Beach Glass Shop on Facebook, I followed their blog and I love the necklaces with the little vials of sea glass. Love sea glass in anything. Thanks for the giveaway!

  16. Cathy

    I’d love to win this necklace! It’s beautiful, reminds me of the beautiful
    ocean! I’d wear it to the Oregon Coast in September!

  17. Loui♥

    I adore the angelfish pendant!
    also love this necklace!
    in fact, there was nothing in the shop..
    which I didn’t like!!!
    make me a winner please!

  18. Aimee

    I love this necklace! We’re not able to go on vacation this year, so wearing it would remind me of the beach year round! :) Thank you!

  19. Debbie Davenport

    The necklace is enchanting…I have been collecting seaglass for about a year when I visit Puerto Rico, but really haven’t figured out what to do with them. It’s addicting and I would love to have the pendant to wear. Much thanks for the invite. I’m hooked!

  20. Sheila Noel

    I love the necklace that is being given away in the contest. The way the wire is wrapped around the beach glass makes it appear to be a shell. The blue reminds me of the ocean. Just fabulous! So very pretty!

  21. dana

    Ohhhhh…what a great etsy store!! Her creations are wonderful!!! I love any of the My Heart Beach Glass Necklaces!! So sweet…with just a bit of color!

  22. dana

    I love the brightness of your summery cottage looks. . . the seagrass rug is such a simple touch, but one that pulls the room together!! And you can never go wrong with flowers in Mason jars….such a sweet look.

    Being from the Midwest, we don’t see much Beach Glass. I would love to be entered in this awesome giveaway!

    Have a great Day 3 of Summer!!


  23. Erika

    love the angels, the sea treasure and the bracelet with deep blue glass and alot more. :)

  24. Rose West

    Just love all your ideas. Especially the part about no rugs….since after the remodel and the wood floors there was no money left in the budget for some :) Happy summer.

  31. Nicole

  36. gloria baker

  37. LeAnn C.

    I really love the glass vials filled with little pieces of sea glass! They are very magical!

  38. Tiffany

    I’m now a fan of the Beach Glass Shop’s Facebook page! I absolutely love the “Life’s a Beach Beachglass Seaglass Bracelet”. The color combinations and touch of silver are my kind of natural style. This give-a-way is too! Very simplisitc, but the colors, sizes, and small details a great piece!

  39. Jane

    I love the Pandora inspired bracelets. It would be nice if she also offered additional “beads” to add to them.

    As far a decorating…here in coastal FL…my windows are usually uncovered…at least in the back of my house. My view is a beautiful wetlands filled with tropical plants, huge trees, and lots of vines…and of course our pool. Who would want to block that view! We have hardwood floors with woven seagrass rugs…and tile (which I hope to replace next year). Our furniture is slipcovered in natural fabrics. For the summer, I covered the family room throw pillows in blues and greens with a touch of natural burlap. The living room has lots of orangey reds and greens…natural linen slipcovers and seagrass rugs. All over the house are brightly colored paintings…all tropical foliage and seabirds. It’s bright, cheerful and comfortable…so say all our guests.

  40. Susan

    I love the idea of taking my rugs off of the floor for the summer! As for my favorite piece of jewelry? I am torn between Chunky White Beach Seaglass Pendant and Beachy Brown Beach Seaglass Troll Pandora Necklace. I love the simplicity of the silver grommet going through the glass. The silver compliments the beauty of the seaglass.
