A Bright Beach House






 













When the real estate agent first showed this cottage to it's new owners, it was painted egg-yolk yellow with circus-blue trim. Their vision was to make this cottage reminiscent of the pastel-coloured Florida beach cottages of the 1940s. They started with the home’s exterior - a mint-green paint job, white trim, and a white picket fence. This fresh, breezy colour scheme set the tone for the rest of the house. A mix of vintage and thrift store finds painted and dressed in ice-cream shades creates a bright, fun holiday weekender!
