My new obsession is painted wood floors. The flooring in our new store location is an amazing aqua color, it makes you feel like you're walking on water.
This "White Dog" painting is available through Not Too Shabby. We have it above our little boy's bed and it may quite possibly be my favorite thing in our house! You need to read the quote to fully appreciate it.
When I think of cottage style, these photos perfectly depict what I envision. Furniture painted in all colors of the ocean, colorful cushions, curtains, rugs and accessories intermixed with strong white pieces. Not whimsical, but light and airy, relaxing and comfortable...a home where you can "live"! Where a little sand tracked in only adds to its appeal. How could you not feel happy walking into a house like this?
