SEE THIS HOUSE: BEMUSED BY A BEACH COTTAGE IN OLD GREENWICH!

Living room in a cottage with coffered ceiling, camels walls and sofa, bamboo floor, built in book shelves, french doors and matching camel trellis armchairs

So...once again...saved by COCOCOZY readers!

Got an email yesterday from Lucy...Lucy works with talented designer Lauren Muse of Muse Interiors in Greenwich, CT. Lucy was asking if she might submit some design photos from the Muse portfolio. I of course said yes...and to my surprise today...I received these wonderful photos in my inbox.

This is a 6,000 square foot "cottage" in the beach community of Old Greenwich. It has 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and 2 powder rooms. The home was newly built back in 2009. (P.S. I wish my cottage in the Hollywood Hills was 6000 square feet...instead it is only around 700 square feet and I'm probably being generous...jealousy about to set in...breathe...relax...no room for cottage envy in this post...okay...I've calmed myself...)

Lauren Muse and team had at making this "cottage" or large house into a fresh cozy space.  They succeeded!

My favorite rooms I think are the bedroom and the kitchen. Love the soft color palette used of light camels, light blues and whites used throughout the house. Lovely.  Am also loving the dining room wallpaper...and all of the drapery throughout the house.  So perfect for a beach abode!

Dining room with floor to ceiling wallpaper, black polished table, floor length cream curtains and white armchairs with nail head trim

White kitchen with two pendant lights, silver bar stools and a hard wood floor

Breakfast nook with banquette seating, a chandelier, a reclaimed wood table surrounded by white chairs, and casement windows

Family room with brown walls, a brown sofa with brown and white accent pillows and a light wood coffee table

Alternative view of the living room with two grey armchairs, a fireplace, built in book cases and a white accent table with a starfish

Dressing room with blue ottoman, accent pillows, two shoe boxes and a black shopping bag

Bedroom in a cottage with blue and cream floor length curtains, a blue tufted ottoman at the foot of the bed, a cream upholstered headboard with blue, white and cream accent pillows

Exterior of a cottage in Old Greenwich

I like!

Thank you Lauren and Lucy from Muse Interiors for the photos!

Readers which room is your favorite?

Happy Wednesday!
