DIY Nautical Pilings with Pool Noodles!

Nautical Pilings made from pool noodles
“The original plan was to group five lengths of noodles into one piling bundle but it worked out that making two groups of three noodles on each side was better.  The Dollar Tree was my source for cheap noodles and for wood-looking adhesive paper to cover them.”
This is such a cute idea!!

A Long Island Beach Cottage Tour


A darling little white beach cottage! Sculptor Elena Colombo has created a lively getaway in a turn-of-the-century Long Island beach cottage.  The cottage is packed full of found objects and eye-popping colors.  As an added bonus, the cottage is surrounded by the Peconic Bay shore.  Elena has an incredible sense of color and amazing ability to improvise and create unique pieces that complement her furnishings.  You’ll be fascinated by the cottage’s “pops of color” which surprise and delight the eye.  If you love inviting and happy cottages, then you’ll fall head over heels for Elena’s place.

“We often get inspiration from the coast – the sun, the sand, the sea – the colors can be bright & bold or soft & mellow, depending on the mood you are trying to create for your room.  The rich yellows and cool blues on this board remind us of a perfect day at the beach!”
