The entryway features a modern style stairway constructed of light wood. A large round mirror gives the impression of a ship’s porthole window, while a pair of birds and dried branch give a nod to the outdoors.

Natural wood floors run throughout the beach cottage while ceiling beams in a similar shade of natural wood add interest above. Painted shiplap walls provide a bit of texture. Furnishings streamlined and uncluttered, providing a clean look throughout. Expansive windows allow views of the seaside.

A cozy window nook takes residence in a corner of the living room, creating a great space for reading or daydreaming. Open the window and let the ocean breezes flow.

The kitchen features calm, neutral colors but details keep the space from appearing cold or boring. Shiny square tiles create a backsplash behind open wood shelves while a unique pendant light illuminates the kitchen island/bar.
