Cottage Haven

March 9, 2012

The temperature has been nudging higher and it makes me think “Summer!”

This week, we’re off to the Delaware beach to see a wonderful beach cottage.


I know, I know.  Isn’t this so beachy and happy?


So take a seat and drink in the view.


This is one awesome kitchen.  I can just imagine taking a seat at the bar and watching the cooking unfold.  It’s required that excellent chefs live here.


Look at all this cookware!  I can just smell the creations.


Open shelves are such an enigma to me.  I love having everything at the ready, out where I can see it, but you need to be super clean to pull this off well.


I told you they were chefs!


Simple. Open. Beachy. Perfect.


I love these big open tables that serve as the heart of the home. Don’t worry, I have another photo of this wall.


This wall of framed photos is just awesome, isn’t it?  I have plans to do this, but how to hang them is my stumper – I’m just not that proficient with the laser level. Nevertheless, I love the effect!


Just to remind you that we are in fact at the beach.  And if you have snow where you are currently, just picture it warm and sunny with the sand between your toes.

Special thanks again to Joanne Hudson for this tour of her Delaware cottage.  Joanne is a premier kitchen and bath designer based in Philadelphia, PA.  Check out more of her work at  She has a housewares area that is worth the look!  And in case you were wondering, Joanne is also the lucky owner of this Canadian cottage.

Have a wonderful weekend!

    I absolutely love cottages like this on the beach. having done a bathroom remodel for a ocean side home, I can appreciate the beauty of these homes and the work that goes into maintaining them.
