Whether the blue of your favourite, faded pair of denim jeans or the sapphire blue of a sparkling stone, it is a colour that works just as well in a relaxed coastal interior as it does in a luxury contemporary home. A timeless colour that when teamed with white, it is the perfect combination for a coastal cottage.
This Florida cottage has taken blue to another level, not just teaming it with white but contrasting it against a foil of white washed, wooden floors, walls and ceilings. Varying shades of blue are seen throughout this coastal home, from the more subtle, aqua blue in the kitchen, to the vibrant, royal blue on the sails of the model yacht. Look around and you will see clever design details such as the decorative portholes at the top of the stair case and the antique style ships compass inset into the balustrade, details that clearly reflect the owners love of the ocean. Throughout the cottage, blue is the focus and it is the most perfect accent for a home that could have you imagining you are aboard a luxurious yacht.
The design of this magical beach cottage is by Village Architects AIA, More of their work can be seen on their Houzz profile (link above).
