Hi! I’m Kristy.
Thanks for stopping by, and welcome to Starfish Cottage!
This is the story of…
but not just ANY cottage,
the BEST kind of cottage…
a cottage by the sea!
This is the story of a family seeking a slower, simpler life…
and a passion for decorating, cooking, gardening, and the coastal lifestyle…
This is the story of Starfish Cottage!
A little bit about this blog…
Our home is located in Southwest Florida on a saltwater canal and we love boating and beaching…Starfish Cottage is filled with seashells, slipcovers and seagrass rugs; as well as antiques, vintage finds, and natural accents.
I believe in…
simple decor and natural materials like
cotton, seagrass, burlap, linen, seashells, candles, and fresh cut foilage.
I believe in lots of white slipcovers and a Chlorox bleach pen.
Design your LIFE, not just your home.
There’s nothing like coming home to a cottage by the sea.
Home should be a sanctuary filled with your favorite things.
Simple designs are the most beautiful.
Count your blessings everyday.
Do what you love and it will never be work.
Everyone needs a giant straw beach hat and a basket on their bike!
Accessories are EVERYTHING.
You can paint ANYTHING.
You can never have too many accent pillows.
Decorating “trends” are for the birds…follow your heart.
I believe that GOD IS GOOD…
sometimes we just don’t know what he is up to!
