Beach Cottage | A Touch of Blue

Rustic charm in seaside blues.

Beach Cottage homes have a relaxed, unpolished feel to them.

They are part Shabby Chic, part Vintage with a seaside twist!
 Distressed finishes, vintage finds and seaside treasures mixed together in an eclectic way 
will create an individual home full of character and soul.
Start with a fresh coat of white paint on the walls ~
then give old, tired furniture a makeover with a couple of coats of left over paint.
Mix in a few antiques, some natural timber pieces and slip covered sofas
 to create the backbone of beach cottage style.
Consider a claw foot bath and old fashioned tapware for a more authentic feel.
Be sure to team your pre-loved or restored furniture with some newer items
to avoid a look that is too run down or shabby. 
For example combine new shaker kitchen cabinet doors with a white marble benchtop 
and a distressed vintage dining table to get the right balance.
Add splashes of blue to your scheme to bring it to life.
