Tybee Tints: Looking For Something In Blue

We love the coastal colors of our Mermaid Cottages and they each have special and unique Tybee tints.  Looking for something in blue?  Well, on Tybee Island there’s the sky.  The ocean.  The blue-gray of the dolphins who frolic and thrive.  Then, there are the blues of our cottages, their exterior trims, their shutters, their doors and their pops of blues throughout the interiors.  Whatever shade gives you calm and peace and that beachy vibe, you’ll find them all here.

Tybee Cottage Swoons: Will It Go Round In Circles

crabby pirate sun at mermaid cottagesMermaids (and mermen) adore the details that make up our Tybee cottage swoons.  Will It Go Round In Circles has us thinking about our love of décor, architecture and the little surprises peeking out from our little color boxes. Circles are frequently used as sun symbols and as representing things associated with the sun.  Likewise, circles can also signify unity, wholeness and infinity.  We just love how circles frame up the best features of our Tybee tiny houses.  They’ve got us all wrapped up with hugs and here are some of our favorites.

Whispering Palms circa 1925

Vitamin Sea Cottage

Come now.  Just how cute and fun can an outdoor shower be?  Well, just reach up  and grab the shower curtain attached to the semi-circular frame.  Say “swoosh” as you close off all of your worries and cares from the outside and wash away your troubles.  Guests love this light, cheerful cottage!  It comes with a screened porch, fenced-in yard, and partial marsh views from the back deck and the porch!

Madelyn’s on the Marsh circa 1940

Madelyn's on the Marsh circa 1940Can polka dots make you happy?  You bet they can.  Especially, when they dot the shutters and the outside shower of this cottage on the marsh.  Just wait ’til your eyes light up and the corners of your mouth turn up.  That’s what’ll happen when you watch the amazing sunrises and sunsets here.

Tybee Tides circa 1930

we love the romantic circles of these pavers
The circular design of these pavers delights us with circles set in stone. Go ahead and hop and skip and twirl around. The setting of this cottage is quite the moving experience.
tybee cottage swoons: will it go round in circlesOur favorite circles?  Yep, you guessed it.  The smiling, round faces of our guests who celebrate their love of Mermaid Cottages, Tybee Island and for each other.  We are family.  Circle back around and create some cottage swoons you’ll never forget.
