A Tiny Cottage in Coastal California

A dream come true tiny cottage in coastal California. Come step inside!

tiny cottage in coastal California
Jain of A quiet Life had been dreaming long and hard of a tiny cottage, a second home to slip away to, where she could sit lazily and do nothing but enjoy the sounds of the sea.

And as you probably guessed, her dream became a reality -a tiny cottage in coastal California near Carmel, sitting high on a bluff just as she had envisioned it.

The tiny cottage is old and needed work... "but its perfect for us, something to grow into and nurture." Jain says. "I have been waiting a lifetime, I have named it SEA DREAM." A beautiful and suitable name! Sea Dream is now all decked out with beautiful coastal decor, and it's easy to recognize Jain's passion -dishes and tablescapes!

In the bedroom you find neutral relaxing colors.

And there is a sitting nook to contemplate at the end of the day. And she too has a couple of adorable Shore Birds! I'd say, Jain's tiny cottage in coastal California is a SEA DREAM inside and out!

This is a great post. What a gorgeous home she found by the sea. Yes,we do have a name for our beach house. It's The Walnut Cottage, named after the street it's on, so as not to confuse it with another cottage that we own and rent out.
