House Beautiful recently asked their reader’s what their favorite color in each room is and they posted their findings in their September issue. Many of the color choices that are the favorites aren’t too surprising. One we weren’t necessarily shocked about, but surprised it beat out the competition was in the kitchen. Reader’s choice was yellow with white right behind it. We of course coming from our coastal roots won’t be the first to put yellow into the kitchen, but have nothing against it. We like yellow and support it, but of course we have to go with our whites and blues in the kitchen. No offense yellow, it’s a coastal thing. We’ve got some pictures form House Beautiful of some of their favorite yellow kitchens for you. Of course we couldn’t leave out some of our favorite white kitchens so we’ve got some of those for you too. Enjoy!

Coastal beach cottage with a giant model sail boat as decorWe love sail boats and working model sail boats into homes as decor. Nothing reminds us of the wide open ocean better than a sail boat. Going down to the harbor in Dana Point and walking around is so fun. You get to walk along the beach where you see all the boats out in the water and dream about being out on the water. It’s relaxing and peaceful.

We love bringing that feeling into the home and adding a model sail boats into the space is a great way to achieve that. It gives us the feel of adventure and playful memories. Plus model sail boats stand out and give the room a nautical theme unlike any other. They’re a great decor addition for any coastal home. You can go big and have them dominate the space or you can grab smaller ones that playfully accent your nautical theme. Either way we love working them into our homes.
