The blue and yellow color scheme from the exterior is carried into the kitchen with royal blue cabinet doors and a charming yellow and white checkered floor.
The whole cottage is painted white, creating a blank slate and allowing the colorful furniture and accents to really pop. Much of the original architecture was preserved, like this built-in dish storage cabinet.
This bedroom includes a partially vaulted ceiling with plenty of bright windows. Blue accents and artwork are set against white bead board walls.
The sun room is used as a sleeping porch. Colorful textiles and artwork make this spot the happiest place in the house. The wall-to-wall windows provide beautiful views of the garden.
The simple bathroom is all white with touches of blue. It's the perfect spot for a rejuvenating shower after a long day at the beach.
This bedroom is yet another cute space to relax. The room features playful bedding, all white walls, and a sloped ceiling.

The outdoor shower is a charming feature and the perfect spot to rinse sandy toes before entering the cottage. A galvanized metal wall, adorned with colorful sea creature art, offers privacy.

A rustic getaway surrounded by nature.
