Inspiration: A Beach Cottage

I’ve always wanted a beach cottage.  It just feels like the perfect home for me — a place where it’s ok to put your feet on the furniture and come in the house a little sandy, where there are sisal rugs, linen curtains and wicker chairs.  Of course, my house is no beach cottage.  You can see the lake, sorta, a couple blocks north, and I could easily ride my bike to the beach… if I had a bike… a pink bike… a pink beach cruiser bike… with a basket…

But, anyway, while I try to figure out how to turn a formal, dark Victorian in the city into a beach cottage, I’ll dream of living in a place like this one in Australia that was recently featured on Design*Sponge.  Since I discovered this over the weekend, I keep going back to look again and again and again.  It’s a rare example of an all-white house that somehow looks totally livable and comfortable for a real family.

Check out some of my favorite pictures of this house.  The first two are from Design*Sponge, and the second two are from the cottage owner’s own lovely and inspiring website, which I highly recommend taking a look at.
