Cornwall Beach House: Charming Home Tour

Are you enjoying your summer so far? Our weather has been beautiful and that makes me happy. Sunny days, blooming flowers, strolling along the river, and maybe a few trips to the beach after the grands return from vacation. Summer is my favorite season and this pretty Cornwall beach house by Wickenden Hutley is exactly how I wish my home looked in the summer. It’s fresh, clean, and free of clutter.

The front entrance is simple yet gorgeous. Bright white trim pops against the rustic stone walls. A simple bench out front is welcoming, but is not so overdone that it detracts from the historic beauty of this home. The open door offers a slight peek inside of what’s to come.

Historic Home Living Room

An old style fireplace graces the living room with its charming appeal, balanced by a single beach painting overhead. Built-in bookcases have simple, stylish furnishings.


Cozy Window Seat

Six-over-six windows create cozy window seats throughout this charming Cornwall beach house. Curtains are kept plain to allow the beauty of the windows to shine. Imagine cracking it open to let the sea breezes infuse the room. Sigh.

Kitchen in a Cornwall Beach House

A clean kitchen with crisp lines has wonderful details like the wine rack and book shelf. A simple light fixture avoids overpowering the space.


Neutral Modern Country Style Kitchen

A few glass-front cabinet doors create interest and lend an air of spaciousness. Black counter tops echo the color of the appliances. I tend to prefer industrial style appliances like the stove seen here. The drawer pulls are the same that I have in my own kitchen.


Simple Farmhouse Style Dining Room

Painted chairs flank a simple farmhouse table in the dining room, with attractive matching light fixtures. A woodburning stove sits in the alcove to provide warmth on chilly winter days.


Family Room with Stone Wall

The fireplace in the family room is identical to that seen in the living room. An impressive stone wall frames it beautifully and provides texture to neutral decorating style.


Beach Style Family Room

Simple furnishings decorate the opposite side of the family room; decorative pillows add color while a wooden fish hanging lends a bit of whimsy.  Linen curtains with a simple stripe complete the look.


Window Seat in Hallway

In the upstairs hallway, a window seat provides a beautiful view of the water. Soft textiles invite you to curl up with a good book.


Beach Style Bedroom

Simple beauty graces all the bedrooms in this Cornwall beach house. The simple mint green sconces add cottage charm.


Bedroom in White and Blue

A ladder serves as a nightstand for matching twin beds, with sconces attached for night lights.
