Open House Sunday

Cottages by the Sea
I love those orange wicker chairs in this room.
Gorgeous seafaring chandelier
Bright Kitchen
pretty patterns everywhere
love this breakfast nook
Really love this wallpaper and the porthole mirror is a nice touch.

That's a very cute ocean cottage, isn't it? All bright colors mixed with ocean colors.

Or does your taste go more towards these rooms for your seaside retreat?
tranquil whites and blues
mixed with shells
All very nautical and shabby
I adore big bottles like this. You can buy a bottle just like this at Pier 1 right now.
This dining room just makes my heart skip a few beats.
I love everything about it.
Including the toile on the chairs

So of the two...which beach cottage look do you like best?

I really like both and would be happy with either but the romantic in me pushes
me a little more in favor of the second.

Although they're both very literal, I like the first one much better. The infusion of unexpected color like orange and yellow is really nice.

I must admit that I prefer the second set of photos. Definitely my style!!! :D I would add a few pops of color with flowers, a few accessories like throw pillows, and art (of course).

Super post!

Everytime I come around here I simply covet and drool over all the gorgeous homes and ideas! Thanks for sharing.

Put me down for #1. I just love the whimsy. Lobster wallpaper is the best!

I like both!! Orange pops here and there and not overdone.

I have to say, I enjoyed the first house. All of that color and texture!

I think I like the first one best, I love the way they used colour.

Thank you for this pretty post. I think I like the first one a little better, although both are lovely, because I like color--bright color!

Holy Cow! Those pictures are beautiful! I am going to have to spend a little time picking out all of the details that make them so magical! Thanks for sharing!

I vote for number two... no doubt about it.. Have become more loving of romantic decor as I have aged. I love seeing your open houses!

I'm for number#2. I like to come home to a peaceful serenity. I get enough excitement and color all day- I want my home to be more restful...maybe it's my age. I just find #2...very calming- xo Diana
