in my dreams, i live here: sunset beach cottage.
i spent a good deal of this weekend shooting san francisco’s sunset district for my upcoming book. with the exception of hiking around fort funston, i haven’t spent a lot of time in this neighborhood, because it can be a tad foggy and chilly but i couldn’t help but wonder what it might be like to have a cozy little beach cottage out here. so this week, in my dreams, i live here: in an ocean beach modern cottage. if i did have a beach cottage, i’d want to keep everything light and airy to reflect any sun that did make its way through the windows. i’d have a fun mix of flea market finds — lots of mid-century modern pieces paired with vintage treasures, but i’d also like to leave it uncluttered and peaceful. here’s what’s currently swimming around in my imagination.
i love the idead of these casually staked books below this low bench and great beach print; and the white cabinet with all the book spines reversed is really pretty, along with all those plants; and a super cool mid-century modern leather chair.
i’d love a comfortable corner to curl up by the fireplace, read a good book and listen to those crazy waves crashing on the beach. i’m thinking this room (below) will make for a pretty dining room with those tall, welcoming white doors making it extra cozy.
the bedroom will naturally be all white and fluffy, too — a very peaceful place to retreat to at the end of a long day at the beach. a nice warm bath and then crawl under those comfy covers for a nice long nap. this is indeed, my dream space.
