Gorgeous!  We absolutely love this breathtaking cottage sleeping porch!  What a wonderful way to wake up every morning, by gazing outside your floor to ceiling wrap-around windows out to the tree tops.  Not ready to wake up bright and early with the sun?  Just draw back the thick linen curtains for a cozy morning in bed.

The low key decor sets the tone for this woodsy home with just hints of luxury, like the crisp white shag rugs and upholstered bed frame.  The room is completely paneled in pine, literally from floor to ceiling, making you feel that you are truly sleeping within the trees.

Would you ever leave this room?

The beautiful blend of blues makes this small coastal living room a cool and calming space. It may seem counter intuitive to put a sectional in a small space, but as you can see from this room, it can actually make it feel very inviting!  Sectionals are a great way to maximize seating while efficiently utilizing space. Not to mention how cozy they are to pile onto for a movie night!  This living room also has an eye catching custom built bookcase wall, a central place for all of the decorative accents to create a big statement.

We are in love with this seaside cottage bedroom.  At first glance it appears to be a simple and elegant bedroom, but looking deeper you see layers upon layers of texture!  From the dyed seagrass wall covering to the thick woven carpet to the antiqued art work, this room is luscious with layers.  For all of those who love symmetrical designing, this bedroom is a dream come true!  The nightstands have identical clear globe glass lamps and the art work collage maintains balance from one end to the other.  This bedroom is perfectly organized and arranged to create a harmonious coastal retreat.
