As I am sure many of you can attest, living near the coast during the fall and winter months can be damp, dreary, and downright cold. It is also so incredibly beautiful and wild with stormy days, tipped with wind whipped seas. I could happily wile away many very happy hours, with a good book and my coffee cup, simply listening to the wind and waves.
These Oregon Coast photos were captured during a crazy stormy week that we spent perched above the sea in a 1950′s era cottage in Newport Oregon. Our roof leaked (terribly!), and our bathroom was Pepto-Pink, but we didn’t care, because the entire ocean side of the cottage was all glass…
A new throw can either be a great accent piece, or can add just the right pop of color that you need to complete your coastal room for fall Changing out your spring-summer lighter, brighter colored throws for warmer, thicker, cozier feeling throws is such a an easy change to make – and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to completely change the look of your favorite sofa.
Here are a few of my favorites!
The Hampton from Bedford Cottage - simply love the loosely knit cable knit pattern, and all of the colors that it is available in. Would be difficult to to decide which color to order!
The Mariner Knit Throw from Lands End (sorry, no longer available) - just a few navy stripes make this perfect! Looks so soft, but yet still has that nautical feel.
I discovered the above cozy coastal designed throws and had to add them to our web store. Soft, oversized, cotton, reversible, with a nautical beach feeling, without being too “kitschy” (Always my goal!) Truly, these are my new favorites!
