Soft pastel tiles surround a flickering hearth in the living room of this charming cottage situated at the heart of Jamestown, a small island off the coast of Newport, Rhode Island. Ice blue walls, pale wood flooring and whitewashed millwork are breezy, cool and beachy, reflecting the homeowner's love of the ocean.
Rustic wood ceiling beams, coffee table and floors bring warmth and depth to the calming white living room. Soft neutral furniture is paired with a striped blue rug, while board-and-batten adds dimension to the walls.
There are a lot of patterns in the open concept living room, but because they're all kept within a similar palette and are balanced out by white walls and furnishings, the overall look is attractive, not overwhelming.
Charming Open Plan Living Space From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, two cramped and dated rooms were transformed into a gorgeous open plan kitchen, dining and living area. A functional kitchen island replaced an unnecessary dividing wall and a crumbling brick fireplace was repaired and painted a pretty neutral hue. An abundance of gorgeous natural light now highlights the charming, vintage cottage-style decor.
