Beachy Cottage Tour w/ Pops of Red

I fell in love with this beach cottage the moment I saw it in Better Homes & Gardens magazine.
I thought Valentine's would be the perfect time to share it with you since it features lovely pops of red throughout the home.

I am so in love with sofa's with rolled arms and I know many of you love ticking fabric.

 Can you imagine having a view of the ocean?
This is my favorite room!
I adore the wicker seating, farmhouse table, slip covered chairs, and grain sack runner.
Well, I guess that's just about everything!
Oh yes, hardwood floors, built ins, chandy & the old silver on the table.
Ok, now that's everything!

I know you dolls love white dishes and tarnished silver so I had to show you this cupboard
in the dining room.
Such a pretty kitchen! I adore the shelf above the sink.
You want to know what I think is soooo cool?
They are accessorizing the kitchen with a bag of potato chips!
This chip lovin' gal digs it!
(they are chips, right?)

Vintage stove.

Hmmm, mmmm.
I want to move into this bedroom too!

Our family went to an all you can eat pizza joint for dinner tonight.
I'm sitting in a stupor on the couch and my brain is having trouble working.
"Black dresser is pretty."
How's that for some impressive writing?

I think if you looked up cottage style in the dictionary there would be a picture of this house.

Walk across the sidewalk and "boom" you're on the beach.

Happy Valentine's my peeps!


  1. I do love this cottage style beach house! I actually remember seeing it when it came out a couple of years ago in the BHG magazine. I remember we went camping and I bought it for the trip. I fell in love with many of the same features you did.

  2. OMG!! I could move right in! Love everything about it. Just the right amount of red.

  3. I agree...just the right amount of red! I fell in love with the kitchen curtains, so cute!

  4. Yep, I fell in love with that cottage too. Love all the red bits, love the white china, and love the white kitchen.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  5. Lisa it's so yummy! I pinned for future reference and love every ounce of it, thanks for sharing.

  15. This has always been one of my very favorite home tours! I've only seen it in the magazine though, so it was fun looking at your large, crisp pictures!

  16. I tore all the pages out of BHG when they featured that house. Isn't it just perfect? I think you can really study that one as a great example of home.

  17. Beautiful home. Thanks for the tour. I missed that issue. Love your blog!
