Modern Farmhouse Style Meets Coastal Cottage Decorating Ideas.

OMG. I just spied an amazing Palmetto Bluff  house tour where modern farmhouse style meets coastal cottage decorating ideas over on Homebunch! Talk about barefoot beauty. Since this design project has my name written all over it, I just had to dig deeper, and I hope you’ll be thrilled I did. Not only is the lake house cottage retreat on the market, additionally I have sources for a ton of the furniture and home decor in case you want to steal the look for yourself!  Should you decide to buy this award-winning lakefront home located in South Carolina, please please let Sotheby’s know you found it here! (And invite me over please!) The homeowner, Lisa Furey is also the talented designer of this beautiful property.

If you love a classic cottage, slightly beachy, mostly white with blue accents, minimal modern farmhouse-y kind of vibe, then today’s house tour is bound TO  ROCK YER WORLD!

Here’s a snippet from the real estate listing: “Expertly sited to take advantage of the views of lake, park and conservation area, this charming compound was created with special attention to all details. Custom floating, solid white oak stairs welcome you into the light and bright main home featuring wide-plank white oak floors, hand colored terra cotta tiles, Visual Comfort lighting and more. The detached cottage is perfect for family and friends, complete with a full kitchen and separate bedroom. A separate carriage house includes a second floor bunk room, kitchenette, and a deck overlooking the lake.”

I love the idea of three separate small structures adding up to about 3,000 square feet, don’t you? You can live in the main cottage in the middle, allow your adult children or aging parents to reside in the guest cottage, and still have the carriage house for guests! The project proves you truly can create a masterful private enclave with just one half of an acre.

Coastal cottage details: 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 3,100 square feet, .5 acre

 All of the light fixtures were handcrafted in New Orleans by Bevolo Gas & Electric Lights!

Coastal Cottage Paint Colors

Here are some important details scored from Homebunch you’ll be happy to learn:

Believe it or not, the exterior white paint color is the same as the interior walls, cabinetry, and trim. And it just happens to be the exact same color we painted all of our interior walls, trim, ceilings, and anything we could touch with our paintbrushes here at the fixer upper back in 2015. Yep. Designer Lisa Furey obviously is a kindred spirit!

Interior and Exterior Paint Color: Benjamin Moore “White”

Master Bathroom Vanity Paint: Sherwin Williams “Tinsmith”

Grey Kitchen Island Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Pashmina AF-100

Blue cabinet in entry color: Benjamin Moore CSP 600 Andes Summit.

    What really strikes me is the wonderful non-cluttered appeal of this house and the guest house. It is a place that one can truly be released from the stresses of the day and “just be”.

    I know, some people might say “Too much white! It’s boring!” (That’s what two of my sisters and mother would say verbatim..haha!) But to me, the fact that the interior is all one shade of white, makes the lines all disappear and makes for a wide-open spaces feel, a space where I can breathe. There is a lot of texture brought in via shiplap, wooden floors (and some accent areas) etc. that is just right. 🙂

    I imagine this is close to how I’d decorate a home if I lived near some coast….but honestly it is a look that can transcend any location and be gorgeous.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Such an eloquent description of the beauty of living with and loving white interiors. I agree that this look has a timelessness that transcends design genres, and I suppose that is why it resonates with me too as someone who avoids trends. Thanks for reading and all the thoughtful commentary. 🙂
