Beach Cottage Design Inspiration

It constantly amazes us how talented our blog friends are...seriously!  With the number of magazines, blogs and websites that we constantly peruse, we are truly impressed with the professional designs which our friends come up with for their homes.  

Coastal decorating is a passion of ours and we never tire of viewing beautifully designed rooms, vignettes or furniture pieces and hope you don't either.  

We've selected some favorite coastal room designs from around the blogosphere to share with you today - let us know which one(s) is your favorite.
Gail's Decorative Touch recently did some "tweaking" in her guest room and we love the results.  Blue Mason jars always delight us to no end and the mantel headboard is so charming that words can't express our excitement. What do you think?

The lovely, Michelle, of Emerald Cove never ceases to amaze us with her creative decorating talents.  She's been playing around with her dining room and came up with this beach cottage chic design...We were going to point out our favorite things, however we love it all!

...okay, we love Michelle's hallway too so we had to share that with you! LOVE it, how about you?

Oh my gosh - isn't this just a perfect beach cottage style example?  We told you how talented Michelle is!!

Our new friends at The Fishermans' Cottage shared this shabby chic bathroom cabinet recently. Now, this is serious beach cottage charm here - -the Laura Ashley wallpaper doesn't hurt either!!

The delightful, Debbie, of Love of the Sea beautified her cottage with a pink and green rose tablescape. Isn't the blue distressed wooden box charming???

Maple and Magnolia is going coastal with a pair of chairs! These beauties certainly didn't start out that've got to see the before photographs in order to believe the fabulous transformation that they've made.

We were so excited when we discovered the blog, Stripes by the Seashore. They just had these shutters installed and it created a new living space for them. We love their choice of coastal accessories (you CAN'T go wrong with oars, can you?) and the chair is divine!

When we saw the chest of drawer transformation by Shell's Shabby Shack all we could think was...We want one just like it, pretty please!

Okay, so do you have a favorite room or piece?

We'll be hanging out with Sarah of A Beach Cottage today so come on over for Good Life Wednesday
