>White & Blue & Sometimes Red ~ Cottage Rooms

>The classic colors of the Beach Cottage are white, blue and sometimes a touch of red thrown in. As you will see, using these classic colors in different ways can create a completely different mood and style. Which is your favorite?

Beachy Blue
A chandelier dripping with crystals and an arched window add formal flair in this cottage living room, where gingham slipcovers, flea-market finds, and a huge shell collection abound.

Country Comfort
A checkered quilt is used as a ceiling-high headboard in this master bedroom. A curvaceous distressed Swedish antique positioned at the foot of the bed and a dangling chandelier give the room a casually elegant air.

Traditional Country Style
This dining room hutch offers abundant storage options for linens, silverware, and dishes. The table is covered in a bright white tablecloth with red gingham place mats. Vintage floral sheets become delightful chair covers.

Layered Bedding
In a cottage guest room, a painted iron bed is piled high with red, white, and blue linens. The homeowners layered a floral dust ruffle, cornflower blue and white sheets, and red gingham comforter with a vintage quilt and plaid and striped pillow cases. An embroidered “Home Sweet Home” pillow tops off the look.

Sweet Dreams

In a mattress-striped guest room, a new gingham shade tops an antique jug lamp while a reproduction alarm clock hangs from an iron headboard. Missing dresser drawer-pulls were replaced by knotted fabric.
