10 Favorite: Cottages with Charm & Style

10 favorite beach cottages
Coastal Living Magazine

 

Some people dream of growing up and living in a huge, sprawling mansion, with cavernous rooms and tons of space. 

 

shingled cottages

But others–like us–are partial to a simple cottage by the sea.

A white picket fence is mandatory,

A shingled exterior is a plus,

And a sweet shutter color (like on Frances Schultz’s former beloved Bee Cottage), is icing on the cake.

Window boxes and a Carolina blue door would be mandatory on our charming cottage,

And a little bit of age and history makes it all the better.

And while the traditional basics are always in style, a few out of the ordinary touches like a yellow door,

Or these fun and festive paper lanterns, simply add to a cottage’s signature style. Which of these dreamy cottages would you choose?

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances and proves that she is “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).
