Cottages from Seaside & Watercolor Florida, Part 2

Blue-Gray Vertical Siding Paired with a Citrus Green Shutter and Creamy Trim

I have some new photos of Sarah’s new front steps and paint job to show off tomorrow, but before I do that I thought I would share some more cottage inspiration from our vacation to Seaside and Watercolor Florida (some of which I used for inspiration for her new front steps). So without further ado here is some more summer cottage inspiration. I think the one above is my favorite. The subtle blue-gray paired with the bright citrus green is really striking.

Seaside is famous for its new urbanist style and planning. Part of this plan included detailed guidelines for the houses. The guidelines actually encouraged interesting designs including the use of towers. These are a few of my favorites, but they are all over the small town.

Nicest Carport Ever used as a Covered Patio

Screened-in Porch w/ Lush Landscape

These porches are so PRETTY! I can’t get enough of them! Of course I am bad about actually sitting on our nice porch. I think I need to make it more of a priority to sit on our porch swing.

I will leave you with this last one, another one of my favorites for its more rustic design.

  1. I love your paint colors on this porch (green shutters, blue/gray siding, and off white trim). Can you tell me what color paints these are?
