Seaside Style


Get the look

Seaside style

For me a simple, white weatherboard seaside cottage 
is the perfect answer to a beach house.

To create a seaside beach cottage feel to your home start with bucket loads of white paint. Paint everything white ~ walls, ceilings, trim even the floors if they aren't anything special. Paint any furniture that's old and drab and needs a freshen up. There's almost nothing that a fresh coat of white paint won't fix! Then combine large, overstuffed slip covered sofas with vintage accessories, distressed and aged furniture with soft pastel seaside shades like pale blue, sage, celadon, jade and aqua. Add some pretty prints, a stripe or two, fresh flowers and some ambient lighting to create Shabby chic beach cottage style.

Your kitchen cabinets look amazing! I actually hired a painter to do the exact same thing to mine. He achieved the same look that you did on your own. I will remember the wet sanding technique. Fabulous job and what a difference!
