To the main cottage we go!
A bubbling fountain welcomes you to the middle of the court yard. Love that sound.
The pathway to the puddle pool which has no edge. Mermaid spa with seashell cottage.
The back of Coquina Cottage is a puddle pool. The front is the beach.
Up to the porch to have lunch. Key West shrimp, anyone?
To the beach we shall go for the afternoon!
Sea grape trees in the sand and Adirondack Chairs at Coquina Beach.
Around the corner and into the kitchen. Coming soon – stay tuned to see the inside of Coquina Cottage in Part II. See you then!
SWEET SUMMER STYLE COQUINA COTTAGE – PART II
This is one of many southern, tropical projects I have finished. I took existing furniture and refurnished it for an up-to-date look. I also had new furniture built for the cottage while still maintaining a vintage cottage look.
This was a three year long project – a one hundred year old cottage on the Gulf of Mexico! It was a gem that needed love and attention. I kept it mainly in its original state accept for redoing the kitchen and the bathrooms. I changed the colors because everything was mint green, both outside and in! There was originally beach sand where the pool is now, which made it the perfect place for a puddle pool. All the cottages surrounding the main cottage are original.
What a place! Come enjoy some of the inside…
Striped floors add fun to this screened-in porch, overlooking the pool. Sweet mermaid light with colorful furniture.
To give it an airy feel, I designed open shelving and added a butcher block island. What a kitchen!
Sleeping porch with whimsical art we made on the wall so it would be different and fun. Sleep while the waves hit the beach like a lu-lla-by.
Master bedroom has a headboard made out of an old theater frame cut in two. Added filling to the middle and covered in a striped fabric and voila! It’s a funky headboard. No one else will have this!
A place to sit, have an iced tea and relax. I used vintage wicker furniture and added new outdoor fabric. We also made some of the pieces.
Simple guest bedroom by the beach. This room is facing the ocean – oh, listen to that surf!
Vintage wicker on the porch overlooking the sea – the beautiful sea.
