The Olioboard Challenge has drawn to a close. Did you see all seven moodboards from all seven participating bloggers?
If not, I’ve got you covered!
It was so interesting to me to see the different interpretations of “coastal cottage” design. It goes to show how highly subjective these style labels really are, and how there really are no “rights” and “wrongs” when it comes to decorating your home. It’s all about choosing items that you love—items that reflect your personality, your taste, your passions.
So let’s take a look at how seven different bloggers interpreted “coastal cottage” style.
First up was Lynda from Focal Point who designed a library/studio.
I could definitely be comfortable in this office! I really like the rustic European feel of this moodboard.
Next up was Lindsay at Living With Lindsay, who designed a home office…
That desk, in my mind, has to be the perfect starting point for a coastal cottage office. Beautiful selections!
And then Rhoda at Southern Hospitality showed us her take on a coastal cottage living room.
I really like this “outside-of-the-box” thinking with the use of red and a mix of traditional and contemporary items.
Next up was my moodboard for a coastal cottage bedroom.
The funny thing is that I really tried to think “outside-of-the-box” when putting my board together, but I think mine was the most literal coastal cottage moodboard of all of them! lol…Oh well. I guess “outside-of-the-box” is just not how my mind works.
Then we had Shannon from What’s Up Whimsy with her moodboard for a coastal cottage dining room.
Ummm…yes please. I want this room. Now. In my home. What a wonderfully curated collection of eclectic items that look absolutely amazing together! Again, more outside-of-the-box thinking that my brain seems incapable of.
Next up was Rachel from Fresh Home Blog with a patio/front porch.
What a perfect setting those items would create! I love living in a condo, but I often dream of having a small outdoor space of my own, and this seems like the recipe for a perfect outdoor getaway.
And wrapping up this collaboration was Sheilah from Olioboard Blog, who created a beautiful coastal cottage kitchen.
What beautiful selections, and I love the blue/yellow/white palette. It’s classic and timeless, don’t you think?
So that’s it! Seven moodboards, seven bloggers, seven rooms, and seven very different interpretations of “coastal cottage style”.
What did you think? Did you find any inspiration for yourself? Did any of these seven interpretations of coastal cottage style speak to you?
