I am so torn right now. I don't know what direction I want to go in.
I am in love with two ideas for Sweet Bee Cottage.
Two styles you might say.
Two different directions I could start heading in with our little cottage.
And because I am so stuck - I have made no progress.
(Oh yeah - money might be a factor too! LOL)
Sweet Be(e)ach Cottage is what I'm going to call what I'm thinking.
(I know - corny - but I can't help it. I think I was born corny.)
So I recently shared the apple green rug we bought for our living room....and I think....I'm slowly going beachy.
Come with me as I look for some inspiration...
Gorgeous whites, bleached woods, and shades of blue....but definitely not practical.
Very cozy with reds and khaki which fits with what I have now (not counting the new apple green rug- LOL) but I want to have a different palette - less red I'm afraid.
Love this cabinet, but there's no way I'm starting a coral or whatever collection. However, I do have this jelly cabinet that we use as a game cabinet that I think would be adorable in this color.
I found a wonderful blog/store with the sweetest cottage inspiration. I shamelessly pinned and pinned and pinned from The Distinctive Cottage.
I'm thinking about painting our heart shaped table a really soft buttery yellow - maybe not as bright as this yellow.
And this inspiration board was what started the whole thing off!
Here's my list of things to change....
2. paint red heart table (in lower left foreground) a softer color - coral? raspberry? buttery yellow?
3. change vintage floral pillows on two wicker chairs
4. paint game cabinet aqua (no picture of that)
5. paint mom's old dresser that's now my sofa table
6. put shells or starfish or similar in wooden bowl
7. paint back of bookshelves (red now - probably the same blue I painted the library bookshelves)
buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz - happy buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
So....is it crazy to have a beachy cottagey look when you are about 150 miles from the beach?
And I did mention I have another look that I am being drawn to.
I'll have to share that in another post.
Please share your thoughts....
And thanks for buzzing along with me. It's always a treat to see you've stopped by.
P.S. You can see more beach inspiration here.
