I also like the stripes, but..Not a good look for the coastal nest, as the rooms are long and narrow and hence the bowling alley look would be achieved, dont you think? That baby is sooo cute!!
This Black and white check is OUTOFTHIS WORLD and is a ver good look, had this in that former house also, in the kitchen. (these were those marmoleum tiles though) With bright green (tulip leaf walls) it was sharp. Changed it at the urging of the boring old real estate agent. (she still never sold it) I ador black and white- then add school bus yellow- my hearts going pitter patter!! A little to bold for a cottage at the beach though.
I also like the look of paint and stain, but we are using a high grade of plywood so I dont think this would work very well. with those beds and that RED makes it sing sing sing, especially with that little pop of yellow in the nightstand and the pillows.
Painted flooring wears so well, it mellows with age and has a very warm and delightful look to it, when done right. Its been around for many many years. Its durable and very cottage-y.
My question to you, please post, because BV and I are really wanting some answers.. would you be more inclinded to (if you were buying a beach home) want carpeting, regular roll out flooring or a painted wood floor? (considering it would be done very well and look just like above first photo)
BV and I will really take your thoughts into consideration, as we know you gals know it ALL, and everything..
I am off for a new haircut. Please let me know what you think.
ps..all photos are from cottage living website.. ;)
