Beach Cottage Coastal Style Blue & Nautical Stripe Putty Love
Wed 18th, Jan, 2012
G’day Beach Cottage lovelies, seeing as there’s a lot of rubble and a lot of male stuff in this house, I thought you might to have a look elsewhere…at a little more coastal, beachy, nautical, blue things…?
Welcome to Good Life Wednesdays.
This post started with an 8 dollar bunch of dahlias I bought to wallow in self-pity because my home-grown dahlias are, at best, mediocre…it’s what my Good Life is all about this week…
With those 8 dollar dahlias I intended to
1. point my face away from various tradie things
2. do some foofing with my new yellow stripe homey things
3. put some of them by my bed so when I slam the door in evening because I am without a bath, something might make me smile.
What actually happened is I cleaned and de-tradie-fied the front Sitting Room and started foofing…and trying to fix up my poster bus blind, I like the casual look of it ‘taped’ to the wall but it’s gone a bit bubbly…anyone got a solution to that? I don’t want it in a frame though…
And ended up with not an ounce of yellow, but a whole lot of blue.
I was sent the ‘runner’ …I think in blogland that I am meant to write c/o when I say where I got it from…because I didn’t buy it and because it was given to me as part of ‘things for my blog’
Anyway, when I opened this, which in actual fact, I think might be a guest ‘towel’, it had my name written all over, indeed, someone, somewhere I think designed this with me in mind…they sat there and thought, I know, that girl on the beaches, with all the white stuff, the vintage things and the ratty old cottage on the wrong side of town…oh yeah she’s in her Aqua & Blues phase…but she still loves her some of her statement putty, yeah I’ll design these for her.
And so here we have it.
The coffee table scape that came off of a bunch of 8 dollar dahlias and a c/o towel.
What do you think of my aquas? C’mon tell me. I am definitely moving into a more colourful stage with my cottage…while I don’t do ‘fashion’ in home decor, I do think bright pops of colour with white are trendy right now, which is what has probably, unknowingly, influenced me…
The best thing about white though and neutral decor is that changing colours with things like runners & cushions & throws is mega-simple and mega-easy on one’s pocketbook
I’ll be seeing you….there is talk right now of fitting up the old bath on the deck for me tonight, it’s Day Seven with no tub and last night and this morning the broomstick was out…
p.s. stop by tomorrow, I have a fashion post for you…one that’s super easy on the pocket, simple, chic, oh and there might me a mini giveaway
