Here’s a snippet from the real estate listing when it was offered for sale:

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…A separate carriage house includes a second floor bunk room, kitchenette, and a deck overlooking the lake.”

I am intrigued by the idea of three separate small structures adding up to 3,000 square feet, aren’t you?

You can live in the main cottage in the middle, allow adult children or aging parents to reside in the guest cottage, and still offer the carriage house for guests or rental income!

The project proves you truly can create a masterful private enclave with just one half of an acre.

What’s the Wite Paint Color Inside & Out?

Benjamin Moore “White” is the color the designer painted all the interiors and exteriors, and this is the color I painted all of our interiors in my own home.

Need advice for choosing a white paint color? See this helpful post. And #coastalgrandmother style is in ample supply at Jenni Kayne:

Coastal Cottage Video

To get the most from this post, WATCH THIS GORGEOUS VIDEO OF THE PROPERTY BEFORE OR AFTER YOU READ THE POST to get a feel for the interior design and see up close and personal glimpses of some of the design elements highlighted below.

Now on to the amazing tour where you’ll learn resources to get the look with furniture, light fixtures and decor.

Front Porch/Entry

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

I mean, you gotta love knowing these pieces will never go out of style.

The key is to keep your coastal classic and not kitschy!

Nautical nods are swell, but there are just too many cheesy accessories out there that water down the sophisticated look.

Lanterns inside and out are right at home…

can you believe how many gorgeous options are available now?

My favorites are the ones with candle-style lights inside:

they’re so nostalgic and Old school.

Do you like the models with a distressed finish?

The designer called the style of this home modern farmhouse meets coastal cottage, and I think we all get a little too hung up on semantics these days…

I mean you could just as easily refer to this home as a beachy chic paradise. BTW…do you need your own mini board and batten beachy chic cottage from a kit?

Entryway: Decor & Furniture Resources

Sliding barn doors also conserve space, and they don’t have to be overly rugged and rustic.

Living Room Decor & Furniture

The wood planked shiplapped walls and ceilings add so much age and charm to this new build:

And the color story is kept quite simple with indigo blue, white, and natural tones.

Lighting

In lieu of a Swiss cheese ceiling of recessed lights, lots of glass and character are right at home with all the white shiplap.

White Sofa Ideas

White sofas are a very good start to a proper Coastal Grandmother’s beachy living room.

Just think of how many different colors, prints, and patterns will look perfect against the crisp backdrop…

And isn’t that wood platform base on the sofa above incredible? It’s not easy to find a quality-made white sofa with a breezy to live with, wood base!

Also, see this story with some favorite white sofas.

Handmade Jute Area Rug

If you’re after a low contrast look for the floors, consider natural fiber area rugs.

Pssst. If you’re space is not blessed with hardwood floors, a rug like this may work well to be suggestive of wood.

It won’t fall from favor and can take a lot of abuse!

Also, find more jute area rugs with geometric patterns HERE.

Hardwood Flooring

With all the white millwork, the warmth of these hardwood floors brings beautiful harmony to the mix.

The backsplash tile is handmade and adds so much dang personality.

Small Blue Bedroom

Not sure you have noticed – but I am seeing more and more designers and home builders

intentionally keep bedrooms on the small size.

Because you want your bedroom to feel cozy and just right for snoozing.

It’s also harder to cool and heat a bedroom that is too large.

    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. ๐Ÿ™‚

    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. ๐Ÿ™‚

      The home’s owner is also the designer – direct any specific questions about the construction to her via the link in the post. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am trying to decorate my house in a similar style, but on a budget. Any suggestions on where or what to look for.

      Absolutely! I have tons of suggestions and need to create a post since I’m sure there are plenty of others with the same desire…stay tuned. In the mean time, notice how the windows are airy and bare? Where you don’t have to have privacy, think about subtracting window coverings. The coffee table in this great room is pricey, but you could score one at the antique mall and paint it with white chalk paint for a similar look. Slipcovers get expensive, but if you can hunt down a big piece of fabric (white denim, linen, or other), you can cover your sofa with it to see how you like living with white. Who knows? Sometimes a lazy slip like this can work indefinitely since it simply gets tossed in the wash. The point is to make it look effortless. To begin, clear the room and only bring back the essentials.

      did you find out the name of the brick? I love it, and would like to use something similar to this.

    Any chance of getting the house plan? Or where can it be found? Custom? Your interior design is lovelyโค๏ธ

      Hi Traci. The interior design is by Lisa Furey, and since it’s a custom home – I doubt the plan would be shared. This home was on the market at one time so reach out to the designer on her site or IG to inquire about any specifics. Thanks for reading. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Let me know which brick home you’re referring to – since this coastal cottage has board and batten, you must be looking at a different post. ๐Ÿ™‚
