Truly, how cool is this cozy space from designer Kate Ridder?Bright color, stripes, white bead board, built-in shelving for treasures, handy sconce lighting for reading your favorite beach novel; what else do you need? We like how she used the two orange round ottomans instead of the "expected" coffee table. Great use of space in a small cottage! So many other inventive ways to use those pieces; perhaps as additional seating for parties or as easy side tables.
I NEED that vintage postcard art!
(After posing the question on our Facebook Page, Maya of Completely Coastal tracked down the source for the art - the artist is Molly Dee.)
