Paws & Paddles Cottage by Jane Coslick

Jane Coslick alert!  Yes, that's right, Jane has been busy doing an amazing transformation of another adorable cottage on Tybee Island and we love it!  The fun and unique decorating of Jane Coslick always delights us to no end (Peek Inside 27 Taylor Street on Tybee Island)  She has a way of creating spaces which are inviting, fun and warm.  Her designs combine bright and beautiful colors together and she is fabulous at paying attention to little tiny details, which add great charm to the finished project.

This latest cottage project is named the Paws & Paddles Cottage and is managed by our friends at Mermaid Cottages.  We love that this sweet cottage is pet friendly with a fenced-in back yard plus even has a partial view of the salt marsh.  Are you ready to see the details?  Let's take a little photo tour!
Welcome to Paws & Paddles Cottage...

The perfect beach cottage kitchen comes complete with everything you'll need for a weekend or week of Tybee Island time!

Pops of red provide some fun visual interest to the cottage...

The cottage is full of comfortable rooms just waiting for you to sit and read a good book or enjoy conversing with friends or family. 

I have a total crush on the blue Tybee Packing Co. box and...

...the pillows with Pink Flamingos are super cute!

This beach cottage bath is light and bright and pure delight (and there's another one too!)

Three uniquely decorated cottage bedrooms provide plenty of room for everyone!

Jane is well known for her cut-out wood headboards, aren't they adorable?

The yard provides a lovely place to rest after visiting the North Beach and lighthouse (a very short 10 - 15 minute walk) or maybe Historic Savannah (20 minute drive) . Map

The back and side yard has a marsh view. Wonderful to watch birds!

We hope you enjoyed your tour! There is more information and photographs on Mermaid Cottages site!  >>Mermaid Cottages

    What visions of loveliness you shared today. I love each of the popping colors in the rooms, but that red in the dining room, with the turquoise, Oh my gosh, made my heart go pitter patter. I love it.

    Love the lime green and wild blue colored bathroom as well. Does that say "Summer" or what? I love it. I need a pair of flip flops in those colors.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend sweet one. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
