Interior designer Tracey Rapisardi creates blissful coastal summer cottage style spaces!
A bright happy dining room that includes a table painted with stripes to add interest and an extra dose of beachiness.
How fun is this summer porch!
Looking at Tracey's breezy coastal summer cottage decor, you would think she'd always lived in the sunshine state.
Except of course for the occasional whale motif which is more a coastal New England thing. This is the entry to the 2008 Coastal Living Idea Cottage that she decorated. It is located in Scarborough Maine. Tracey grew up in the North East and only recently relocated from Portland, Maine, to Sarasota, Florida.

Tracey is also responsible for the summer cottage decor of "Sweet Dreams", one of the Cabot Cove Cottages in Kennebunkport Maine. As you can see, Tracey loves to give an entry a coastal touch with custom made coat racks.
And this breezy summer bedroom showcases another recurring cottage decor accent she uses, rustic wooden signs with words.
You know how much I love Beach Signs, both DIY Signs and Signs from Stores.
According to an interview with Herald Tribune back in February, Tracy is in the process of remodeling her new house in Sarasota in a modern Key West cottage style. I hope we get to see it soon!
