Holiday Cottage by the Sea Bedroom

{Beach Cottage Decor} Vacation Cottage by the Sea

What could be finer than a vacation cottage located near the sea?  This lovely cottage is located in the small coastal town of Aledburgh, Suffolk, England.   The town is notable for its fisherman huts where freshly caught fish are sold daily as well as  for the sculpture named, The Scallop, which graces Aldeburgh’s beach.

This cottage by the sea offers a bright and cheery living room with patio doors that lead onto a decked area.

Sky blue cabinets, granite worktops and bright striped blinds, create a  seaside theme in the kitchen.  The cabinets coordinate with the dining furniture which brings the two areas together.  The whimsical blue paint used on the table legs a funky and fun look.

{Beach House Tour} A Coastal Cottage near the Sea

This brick cottage dates back to 1849 and is nestled on the Norfolk coast line (in the East of England) and even comes with an accompaning beach hut.  The outdoor spaces are what immediately caught our attention; however the simplicity of the cottage grew on us.  In fact the more we looked at the photos, the more we fell in love with the white interior with simple hints of blue used here and there.  Pillows in similar striped hues were mimicked in both exterior and interior areas for a pulled together look.

 

Here’s the courtyard photo which made us giddy with excitement…

Driftwood Home Decor - Eiffel Tower

Driftwood Eiffel Tower

What is more French than the Eiffel Tower? Nothing!  We received our new Ballard Designs catalog in the mailbox yesterday and totally fell head over heels for this Driftwood Eiffel Tower.  I want, want, want but don’t need, need, need! LOL!  There must be some place in this cottage for a divine driftwood design.  Hmmmm….

We love driftwood for its warm, weathered color and endless natural shapes. So why not use it to create a sculpture of our favorite Parisian landmark? Every one is hand assembled and a unique work of artisanal art.” — Ballard Designs

Oslo Cottage Apartment

Adorable Cottage? Nope, It’s An Apartment!

We couldn’t believe our eyes when we read that this was an apartment, because it looks just like a little cottage.  Its interior is light and bright with lots of vintage-inspired touches.  Pops of blue and purple are used here and there to add a bit of whimsy to the nearly all-white space.  They have used many space saving components including hooks in every room plus on the back of the door as well as a practical hanging wine bottle rack, plate rack with hooks and a wonderful white ladder for towels in the bath.  What’cha think?

Since we’re always on the look out for coastal bathroom components, we really love the Spinnaker Shower Curtain.  The curtain comes with two digits, which can be red or blue.  The grommets offer a coastal/nautical chic feel which we swoon over.

White dacron top on solid canvas bottom, choice of color on underside of bed.  You can even ask for a specific number which can be added at an additional charge.  Doesn’t this beautiful puppy look comfy?
