Shabby Chic Cottage By The Sea

Today is glorious weather, the sun is shining, the sky is powder blue and I feel Summer might finally be here! I've just been for a long walk with Poppy down to Mission Bay beach, walked  briskly along the promenade as Poppy pranced along beside me on the sea wall.  We walked through Kohimarama towards St Helier's and back and in between I introduced Poppy to her first time in the sea (a whole new post :))...Poppy is now lying comatose beside me as I'm typing, she is utterly worn out but a very happy little dog.

I am full of the joys of sea, sun and sand, so in keeping with how I feel, today I'm sharing a delightful cottage also beside the sea but in the UK in Kent.  This unique home is full of interesting items and decorated 1930's style, don't you think it has a "shabby chic" but nautical feeling? The cottage has it's own private beach and the property is available for film/photo shoots through jj Locations, you will find a link at the end of this post.

I think this place is really quite unique and the pretty blue lends a real seaside feel to the inside. I hope you enjoy looking inside as much as I did.

  1. Love these images, the color blue does make this home so happy and inviting....Especially love the open shelving in the kitchen.....

    1. I agree and its a lovely soft blue its not "Bang" right in your face bright deep blue that was around in the early 90's.

  2. So pretty. I love the little umbrellas with their tassels - wonder where I'd find one of those?! We're having fab weather here in Hawke's Bay too - yay! xxx

    1. Hi Vic,

      I have managed to track down the little umbrellas but they come with a rather large price tag! Here is the link:

      They are 240 British pounds each and they do deliver internationally.

      I would love one for my outdoor table, it would be magic! I might do a bit more research see if I can find where they are made in India and find a better price.


  3. This really is the ultimate in shabby chic, so gorgeous!
