Colorful Little Beach Cottage

This beach cottage in Florida might be small, but it has everything guests need to feel comfortable: an open kitchen, breakfast nook, lofted bedrooms, etc. A bright blue-and-green kitchen backsplash, striped curtains, painted oars and more add splashes of color to the walls and ensure not an inch of space goes to waste.

Open Plan Kitchen With Blue Green Backsplash

With its bright green-and-blue pattern, the backsplash brings the fun to this open plan kitchen. On the ceiling, reclaimed wood is an ideal foil to the cheerful colors. Kitchen backsplash: Ann Sacks Savoy Hive Mosaic; industrial pendants: IKEA

The open plan kitchen epitomizes friendly, laid-back beach style with a bright backsplash, carbon-fronted cabinets, reclaimed wood ceilings and open shelving.

This kitchen's mosaic backsplash dazzles in lime green and pool blue. And to complete the look, a gold trefoil mirror echoes the graphic pattern. Kitchen backsplash: Ann Sacks Savoy Hive Mosaic

Accessories continue the bright color scheme started by the kitchen backsplash out into the living area. The room's two-story high ceiling makes the entire space feel so light and bright.

Coastal Kitchen and Living Room

Painting the stair railing black introduces another strong vertical line in this open concept living area, highlighting the high ceiling and pulling the eye up.

Coastal Living Room With Striped Curtains

This condo's living area was designed to be flexible, with easily movable furniture that can work for game night, movie night or even extra sleepover guests. (The sofa is a sleeper sofa.)

Coastal Living Room With Blue Striped Curtains

With such a high ceiling in this living room, the curtains' horizontal wide stripes are a welcome contrast and burst of color.

Coastal Sitting Area With Ladder

Texture steals the day in this corner: rattan, sailcloth, burlap in rich, saturated colors. Love the ladder for handily holding extra throws.

Coastal Dining Area With Oars

To give this beach house a unique feel, designers traded a paler palette for crisp navy and bright green decor against a fresh white backdrop. Textures like the caned dining chairs are another nod to the beachy setting.

Red Gate and Stairs

Red sings out at the top of the stairs, a playful gate allowing entry to the upstairs master suite, guest bedroom and kids room.

Coastal Art and Portholes

The oceanfront condo covers its walls with beachy art and flashes of lifeguard-approved red.

Blue Coastal Bedroom With Striped Duvet

Shiplap paneling painted blue is the handsome backdrop for this bedroom's imaginative mix of patterns. The fact that everything is blue and white keeps the overall look harmonious.

Blue Coastal Bathroom With Starfish

Ahoy! The shiplap paneling in this bathroom gets a coat of ocean-inspired blue. To keep the coastal look modern, designers added a graphic print shower curtain and cheeky oversized starfish.

Blue and White Coastal Bedroom With Sliding Door

A color palette of blue and white and a blend of beachy textures—rattan, sailcloth, caning—fill the condo's bedrooms.

Blue Coastal Bedroom With Feather Art

This breezy bedroom gets treated to views of the condo's lower level; just pull back the blue linen curtains.

Coastal Small Bathroom With Wave Curtain

Red, white and blue feel fresh and fun in this coastal bathroom, from the zippy wave-covered shower curtain to the cherry red medicine cabinet.

Kid's Room With Blue Sliding Door

This adorable bedroom will score major points with all the littles with its blue sliding door entrance, happy hued bed linens and a sailcloth curtain behind which slumber party secrets were meant to be shared.

Coastal Bunk Beds With Portholes

Sailcloth curtains are pulled back to reveal a shipshape set of of bunk beds, with cool graphic bedding and portholes peeking down to the lower level.

Foyer With Blue Graphic Wallpaper

An oversized graphic wallpaper sets a bold, fun tone immediately in this entryway. Canvas curtains neatly hide away the stacked washer and dryer, a functional but not so sightly part of the space.

Oceanfront Balcony and Striped Curtains

Broad blue and white stripes (courtesy of curtains) set the stage for this balcony's wonderful beach views and cafe table oasis.
