Coastal Cottage in House Beautiful

While reading this month’s House Beautiful, I fell in love with this sweet little cottage in Provincetown, Massachusetts.  Designed by Frank Roop, this home is perched directly over the water and features quite a picturesque view.

The cottage is super small and quaint — size doesn’t matter!  The nautical theme and details throughout the cottage are so pretty and clever.  Although space is limited, with plenty of light and a bright palette, the design doesn’t feel cramped at all.   Roop’s selections of furnishings are proportionate and multi functional to the space and I absolutely love the color palette  -a sea of blue.  The upholstered wall in the bedroom is genius!
