Modern Coastal Cottage Interior Design Inspiration

This week we toured a very special property in Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina known as Duck Crossing with coastal cottage interior design by Lisa Furey. Modern Coastal Cottage Interior Design Inspiration highlights my favorite design elements and decor from the project which is a celebration of coast best friends: blue and white. This compound even inspired a brand new mood board with ideas to get the look of a coastal cottage kitchen.

What’s up with all the coastal fever on Hello Lovely? I am clearly in the mood for SUMMER so bring it on, mama! Onward with inspiration from lakeside cabins, fantasy beach houses, and cozy bungalows by the sea since they all suggest a slower pace, peaceful unplugged time, and a restful atmosphere.

Ever dreamed of designing a coastal cottage kitchen? My own kitchen is very much in this spirit and features white oak hardwood flooring, Benjamin Moore White painted walls and beadboard, a fireclay apron front sink, bridge faucet, and, well, you get the idea.

I created the mood board (below) for you to consider and pin to your kitchen boards. You’ll notice the color palette is not blue and white like the South Carolina inspiration kitchen, but more in keeping with my own kitchen: neutral with light grey, white and black. Light wood tones warm the mood along with a mix of metals (but not too many!) as well as nautical (yet not kitschy) nods.

Back to bizness.

And blue and white blissfulness.

Sigh.

I’m smitten with this coastal style powder room’s blue with the shiplap (painted BENJAMIN MOORE White). The color combination with the vintage mirror adds a freshness to the traditional style and keeps the Granny Factor at bay. And I think pedestal sinks like the one above are so underrated…they do so much for such a small price in small baths. Design: Lisa Furey. Photo: Lindsey Shorter.

The wall color in this powder bath may be BM Andes Summit since the designer used that color elsewhere, though these walls appear more muted and similar to a paint color I used in our prior home for a coastal bath with a pedestal sink like this. The color was BEHR Deep Shale:

I searched for the fabric used for these custom pillows and found it for you…yay! It’s called Andromeda Japanese Style linen in indigo from Schumacher. I have had lots of custom pillows created by sewers on Etsy, and here are some possibilities in case you love the look:

The designer chose bedding from Pine Cone Hill, and my experience with this brand is all positive…I have relied on Pine Cone Hill for years now for curtains, bedding, pillows, and fabric. Designer Annie Selke is one of my design heroes!

One of my favorite design elements in this beautiful main house? The blue painted built-in, conveniently located near the front door. I think I’d rather have a smart and attractive piece like this for storage than a larger closet with awful bifold doors (which is what I’m currently living with).

I also love the timeless style of the bench designer Lisa Furey chose for the entryway. It could go in any number of spaces, and I can imagine designing a bedroom or dining room around the piece!

    I love a coastal look , especially when its not “themed” . Do you have any idea what color the wall is painted in the picture with the pedestal sink ? It’s a kind of blue gray. We are painting my husband’s office – it already has white board and batten about 1/3 way up and we are looking for a nautical blue gray that’s not too dark ( the office is in an attic bedroom with only one dormer window).

    Thanks for sharing

      I think it very well may be BM Andes Summit since the designer stayed rather consistent with her colors, and this powder bath is likely in the main house where she used the color on a built-in in the entry. But that color is a true blue without grey. Photography and editing can make colors appear slightly different so bear that in mind. If you are after a blue-grey, then I would definitely steer you toward greys and not blues. Even if the paint swatch says grey – it could easily read blue grey with the blue undertones of the color.You might like what we painted our powder room in our prior home: https://rstyle.me/+zAK_C7sjvuyQlSjDn4cHng It’s Behr Deep Shale, and I loved its sophistication. I never changed it which says something. There was no natural light in that bath btw. I also had a pedestal sink in the space and white trim. See what you think!

        Love the Deep Shale . I think it’s got a moody nautical look that would work well with the right white board and batten. You are a jewel!
