Beach Cottage Home: Coastal Country Lifestyle

Southern California Beach Cottage, country style entrance way, yellow house with blue trim, from Studio, Garden and Bungalow

It's not often we see a home so filled with personality and creative collecting as this sunny yellow coastal cottage.  Sue's home is tucked away in a beach canyon inland from the coast in southern California.  She has designed this charming home with her favorite things collected over the years in a consistent aesthetic that focuses on unique finds.  Her antique furniture gives this home warmth and subtle textures.  It's a casual and relaxed setting, filled with sunlight and views of the garden.
