A new community in Galveston features this pretty beach cottage by Mark Ashby. Beamed ceilings, shiplapped walls, and neutral finishes create an inviting and relaxing environment. Multiple levels provide optimal views of the waterfront and scenic surroundings.
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.
The dining room is adjacent to the living room with a door that leads to one of the beach cottage porches.
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.
A breakfast nook with banquette seating is a great place for morning coffee, playing board games, or reading the newspaper.
The master bedroom features a four-poster canopy style bed with comfy bedding. A nubby rug adds texture underfoot.
The children’s bedroom enjoys custom bunk beds in a coastal shade of blue that any kid would love.
The same neutral palette appears in one of the bathrooms with a gorgeous patterned floor.
