Celebrating Blue & Green with a Coastal-Cool Style


Blue and green are two of my favorite colors - especially for decorating.  Mix in some white, pink and a dash of red - and I am in heaven.  Whenever I look at photos of blue and green - I immediately feel a sense of calm.  I guess that's why I love aqua and turquoise so much - since both are a combo of both my favorite colors mixed together.

I brought a bunch of old magazines to the beach with me today... and stumbled across this amazing oasis in Cape Elizabeth, Maine featured in Better Homes & Gardens.  This is a must read for any coastal cottage lovin' person like me.  This is one of the most beautiful spreads I've seen in a while.... it makes me just go ooooohhhhh  ........   aahhhhh !!!




What a cute little staircase....the cutouts really make it special

What a living room this is!!

McCoy pottery on display


Custom made glass design inlaid into the fireplace....

Great open area for meals...

My favorite is the dining nook! I love the chairs, and the window seat and cushion look so cozy! The McCoy pottery is also great! Gorgeous colors :)

What beautiful rooms! I love the use of the blue/green EVERYWHERE. As much as I love this, I would probably tire of it before long. That's why I tend to have white furniture/wood furniture and use lots of color with the paintings and pillows.

IT'S PERFECT....I would give anything to live in that cottage as long as it was in a beachside community!!
