Cottage Charm and Coastal Calm

cottage charm and coastal calmGive your home a little cottage charm and coastal calm, even when you don’t live near the sea.  You take home momentos of your beach getaways and the memories linger long after, so give your home a beachy makeover.  You know.  Just a little something to tide you over until you can get your toes in the sand, again.  A knick knack, here.  A tchotchke, there.  A wash of pastel color for your walls, a door or a window.  Textures you can touch when you need that little mental break.  Whether vintage or brand spanking new, it’s up to you to celebrate what you like and to treasure  your time at the beach.

Create an outdoor sanctuary where you can wile away at a leisurely place.  Maybe a swing with coastal inspired pillows like this one at Bluebird Cottage & Nest circa 1900.
