Beach Cottage Decor with Love

Sometimes it is difficult to find the kind of beach cottages I love to show you on here, but not this week Beach Dwellers.  This one has everything I love in a beachy abode.  Lime washed floors, loads of Sydney sandstone set on a big block, beautifully styled with a northerly aspect.  If you would like to know more about her you can look here.  This cottage had me at exposed roof trusses, one of the most elegant design features in a house, I do believe.

She is on a huge block and was built in the 1940's by the original owner, a stone mason, who carted the quarried rock from a neighbour's property.  What a labour of love this gorgeous beach cottage is.













On another note.  Thanks for all your interest and lovely words about the Gourmet Garden cook off, you are such a sweet bunch.  Mr Beach House is particularly thankful that my cooking has been so inspired.  I attempted a Neil Perry recipe last night and it was lovely.  Tonight is something from Vali Little.  Now if only I could get my tax done, all would be right with the world.

  13. Hey that's the firepit we bought. I do love the white interiors. My pal down at Jervis Bay is often saying we should paint all the wood white, it's all made of wood there but we don't have the courage - yet.
