Many people desire a home by the water to enjoy spectacular views and breath the fresh seaside air. Today we’re heading to New Jersey to tour a waterfront cottage filled with natural light and charm. An abundance of windows allows a view of the bay from almost every room in the house. Note the rooftop deck that provides an ideal place for watching boats during the day and gazing at the stars in the evening.
Containers planted with pretty flowers greet you as you ascend the steps to the front door.
Beach style decorating is evident the minute you step inside. A whimsical Beach sign, a nautical clock, and a model sailboat all give a nod to the location of the waterfront cottage.
Blue and white create the perfect color scheme for a coastal home. A large bay window provides views of the water outside.
A white fireplace provides warmth during cooler evenings. Bookcases house numerous books for reading out on the porch on a lazy summer day.
The kitchen is equally light and airy with white cabinets and light counter tops. Wood floors add an element of warmth and keep the kitchen from feeling cold or impersonal.
The charming dining area is adjacent to the kitchen for an open concept floor plan.
There are several bedrooms throughout the waterfront cottage, but I’m just sharing a few. A beautiful, vaulted wood ceiling creates a feeling of spaciousness. A cottage style bed enhances the beach-themed decor.
A simple quilt adds homespun charm to another bedroom with a vaulted ceiling.
Another bedroom is graced with simple bedding and decor.
Stunning coastal views are enjoyed from an amazing covered deck.
With views like this, you could sit for hours and watch the boats go by.
I hope you enjoyed today’s seaside tour of a waterfront cottage. It’s truly idyllic.
