Charming Cottage Style ~ A Pocketful of Blue
When I started this Charming Home Series of beautiful home tours, I knew that JoAnne at A Pocketful of Blue would be one of the features. I’ve been reading her blog ever since I started blogging myself. We share a love for the color blue … especially when it’s paired with white. Her home embraces a clean, charming cottage style that I fell in love with the minute her blog loaded in my web browser. Take a look and see for yourself!
Sunlight dapples her comfy cozy family room. Soft leather couches are piled with plump pillows.
JoAnne’s welcoming home combines comfort with pretty cottage style.
A striped casual rug lends a coastal style to the space, while the coffee table adds a hint of cottage.
A corner fireplace is painted white and flanked by a pair charming chairs …
… a chippy blue chair and a black wicker chair.
The mantle is kept simple and sweet.
JoAnne’s adorable kitchen is loaded with cottage style charm!
Clean, bright, and airy … with a touch of blue, of course.
JoAnne cleverly removed kitchen cabinet doors to create a display space.
Blue painted bead board lines the back of the shelves, adding a bit of texture and color.
JoAnne has a great eye for artfully displaying her collections.
More sunshine beams into the master bedroom where blue and white bedding take center stage.
I love JoAnne’s clean and simple decorating style. It’s so refreshing and uplifting.
When you visit A Pocketful of Blue, you’ll find inspirational projects like this painted table.
JoAnne transformed it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and Coco.
In the bathroom, JoAnne added an element of fun with green painted mirrors.
A blue hand towel keeps the “pocketful of blue” theme going. Love it!
And did you notice the fabulous farmhouse style lights?
You’ll find a bit more green in her son’s bedroom.
The green desk chair repeats the green of the throws on the beds.
Finally, in the basement you’ll find more of JoAnne’s pretty cottage coastal style.
Her home is livable , beautiful, and charming all at once!
Visit JoAnne at A Pocketful of Blue for more inspiration.
She recently added an entire second floor to her home!

JoAnne’s home is so pretty! And she is such a sweet lady! GREAT feature!
I love Joanne’s home. It is sweet and charming and I adore all of her blue. I love her open cabinet area with the blue background area.
This is absolutely the most beautiful, sweet, cozy, simple, clean, and neat home I have EVER seen! I love it! I would like to
know what you used for your kitchen cabinets? Did you paint them? If so, what did you use? I am thinking of painting mine.
Such a gorgeous home and it features my favourite colour too. Love JoAnne’s kitchen!
What is the blue/green paint color in your living room? It’s lovely!
