It is in the suburban calm of Kentfield, California that one finds this gorgeous cottage that perfectly epitomizes the charm of summer at its breezy best. The Kentfield Cottage designed by Katie O’Neill Design perfectly showcases the basics of beach style combined with warmth and comfort of cottage goodness and does so without ever going overboard. Every element inside this home is simple, stylish and there is a certain understated elegance about it all. Every room of this curated cottage feels welcoming and organized with the right backdrop and apt of use of bold, beautiful colors.
In the living area one finds a large sectional in light brown with a rug in matching hue. Lovely drapes in cream usher in filtered natural light while accent pillows in light blue along with indoor plants bring a hint of color to this neutral space. A slim console table with a couple of stools in the corner saves space while adding more light to the interior while the bedroom with its white backdrop and brilliant splashes of blue and coral ends up stealing he spotlight almost instantly.
We adore the use of bright coral and beachy blue in the bedroom as the accent pillows and wall art end up making a really big impression even as the slim bedside tables and lamps add to the ambiance in here. A series of vases and perfect lighting complete this relaxing Californian cottage! [Photography: Margaret Austin]
