:: Beach Cottage/Coastal Rustic Design Style ::

Standard

Tuesday Tips

d740060d3279d271ac8b3b6f219d2423The beach cottage and coastal rustic design styles are staples in coastal decor. We’ve put these two styles together because they really go hand in hand. The beach cottage style is all about comfort, being cozy and weathered decor. Doesn’t that sound just like rustic coastal decor? It does to us too, so that’s why we gladly combine these styles! Without further adieu, let’s get into what makes the beach cottage/coastal rustic decor unique.

The first thing you notice about the beach cottage/coastal rustic style is the immediate comfort the space offers. This style is all about welcoming you into a cozy space that you can curl up in on a cold winter night or take it easy on a hot summer day. The decor style invites you to forget about your worries and let go. You will also notice all of the textures that come along with the style. This is due to the fact that this style heavily incorporates weathered and vintage pieces. Another big theme throughout the style is the wood work. Whether it be the floors or furniture, there’s going to be wood. It’s most likely going to be stained, weathered or painted because that’s what the style calls for. It’s also very common to see wood paneling on the walls. This adds to the decor and the wood theme is usually carried throughout the home.

Cottages are known to be cozier (word friendly version of small) and that means you have to get creative with the space. That can mean little nooks, built in’s and many other creative ways to utilize the small amount of space you have to work with. Of course not every coastal cottage is small. Some have a lot of space and give the designer the opportunity to play in it. So instead of using standard, cottage friendly furniture pieces they can use larger ones that can add dramatic depth and style to the space.

The furniture used in this style is usually wood based. It keeps with the cottage theme and ties in with the wood flooring that’s already in place. Designers have been known to work in a few pieces that incorporate metals, but they are used sparingly in the home. The pieces also tend to have a vintage, rustic look. This gives the designer the opportunity to actually work with real vintage pieces that give the home unique charm. This idea carries through to the accessories and where we think the style really comes through. The accessories are the whipped cream and cherry on top! It’s very common to see trunks and weathered coastal inspired pieces in this style. Like old pieces off sail boats, vintage looking art and lots of driftwood. This style also gives way to the use of vintage knick knacks throughout each space. The designer can really have fun and get creative with what vintage accessories they want.

If you weren’t already sold on this style, we’ve got a few pictures for you guys to check out and see what we’re talking about. We tried to give you guys a mix of what’s out there when it comes to the style without branching off into any other style (which is a lot harder to do than you think). If you have anything to add to our beach cottage, coastal rustic design style post please let us know! We’d love to know your favorite design aspects of the style and anything you think we should know!

:: Monarch Beach Design Project Room Breakdown ::

Standard

Feature Friday

Monarch-beach-coastal-home-tuvalu-002Today’s post is all about breaking down some of the rooms from our latest project. We’ll be letting you know what the designer was thinking during the process and where she was coming from. If you haven’t seen the entire finished project, jump on over to our portfolio page and see it in it’s entirety here! But make sure to come back for more goodies in this post!

Let’s start with the living room (pictured above). We talked to Jaymi, designer and home owner, and she said, “For a cozy feel in the living room I chose to do a custom blend of wood tones to create warmth for the tongue and groove but white beams to still add a coastal touch.” She also went with sisal carpet instead of regular carpet throughout the entire home. It’ beautiful and also adds an extra unique design element to each space. She also decided to hang her art by using art gallery style with brass chains that come from the ceiling to get a more traditional look. Jaymi became a fan of this way to display wall art as she traveled to other countries and toured historic castles and estates. She went on to say, “I noticed how they hung their priceless works of art in this style and always admired how beautiful it looked.  And it won’t make holes in my walls or wood work.” Jaymi also decided to use sconces rather than table lamps in the living room to conserve space on end tables and create more space for decor.

Monarch-beach-coastal-home-tuvalu-026Jaymi used oyster shells on the fireplace to add that ocean feel without having shells everywhere. The bricks are hand stamped and give the space a custom feel while mixing up the textures in the space. The TV is framed with a custom matte frame and hung above fireplace as to not have take up room on a console or TV stand (Yes, that’s a TV, not a piece art above the fireplace).

Monarch-beach-coastal-home-tuvalu-004Monarch-beach-coastal-home-tuvalu-012Monarch-beach-coastal-home-tuvalu-027The kitchen backsplash features 6×12 marble subways in a herringbone pattern with stunning wood shelves made from barnwood from the 1900’s. You can see the white that still shows on the wood shelves from when they used a milk glaze on the wood of the barns to prevent bugs from eating through the wood.  If you haven’t noticed by now, this home and designer is heavy on the details! The brackets holding the shelves were custom made from chair rail pieces. They give a great rustic design compliment to the wood shelves and really bring the look together. The base cabinets are retrofitted from Tuvalu cabinets and the kitchen comes complete with a glass front pantry cabinet.

Monarch-beach-coastal-home-tuvalu-010At the time Jaymi was deciding to invest in her first home, she was torn on her first home being located at the beach or in the mountains. Even though the beach home won out, she still wanted to have aspects of a cozy mountain feel for her guests to enjoy. With white tongue and groove walls and a dark navy ceiling as a base, the rest was just a matter of layering it with aspects of warmth.  With the spool style bed, buffalo check curtains, vintage boy scout backpacks, antlers, a few Pendleton blankets, and a vintage American flag (not pictured), Jaymi had the perfect cozy retreat for her guests.

In her master suite, Jaymi wanted it to be relaxing and have a spa like quality after her long days. She did a more traditional wainscotting than the rest of the space and used her wallpaper in the bath as a match for the colors of her walls to create continuity. The barn door that’s painted in a very light grey separates the bathroom from the bedroom without taking up any space.  The clam shell sink is one of the many items she had saved for years, which she found on a buying trip to Atlanta, and knew that one day it would make the perfect sink after a little retrofitting. The vanities in both bathrooms are chest of drawers from Tuvalu. Jaymi knew she loved Tuvalu’s mermaid artwork, but as with most things in her home, she wanted it to be meaningful. She accomplishes this by a grouping that represents each one of her best friends in their hair color and personality so she always has them near.

What’s Trending Wednesday

a28c0c4f33be21585ee984f94ef50301An all white room never gets old. Something about it is timeless and beautiful. We think it’s the simplicity that you get lost in and instantly fall in love again and again. The pure white of the space really grabs ahold of you and pulls you in. Another big plus with white (and any monochromatic space) is all the texture play that goes on. You really have to mix it up and get a fun range of textures in the space. If everything is the same it looks extremely flat and boring. Mixing in old or new and different finishes will really make the space pop.

We love getting lost in white spaces, they’re just dreamy and scream “enjoy me!” We’ve gathered a few for you to enjoy today and get a good look at what we’re talking about. If you have any favorite white spaces that you think we should see please share them! We love to see what you guys love as well!
