Design Tips: Small Beach Cottage Design
How to live large with style in a small space.
1. Be creative! Be very creative, make sure you have a few daring elements to deliver big visual impact, while also creating the illusion of more space. Best trick to getting all of these in one is with a large coastal mirror.
3. Mix formal and casual. You never want your home to feel stuffy or pretentious. There is more authenticity in bringing different worlds together. Mix up your grandmother's antique accent chair with a beachy white slipcovered sofa.
4. Stay consistent. A house flows better (and seems roomier) when spaces share elements. Carry a style of lighting or a color through rooms, you can achieve this with coastal chandeliers that carry from the kitchen to the dining room.
5. Blur outside and In. “The backyard should function like an extension of the house, this will make the home feel larger and your living space bigger. Try using slipcover sofas outside to give your backyard a living room design.
