With today’s small home tour I won’t be doing a questionnaire. Carol and Steve were in a very serious car accident almost two months ago and Carol can’t type. I didn’t know this when I asked her to participate.
So please just enjoy the lovely photos of her home and a little commentary by me.
Carol blogs at Art & Sand. Though it hasn’t been updated since the accident because of her injuries.
Carol and Steve’s home is filled with color. Here they can dine outdoors on the flagstone patio.
Imagine living by the sea. Your backyard a long stretch of sand that you can sink your bare feet into. And just beyond that, the ocean to enjoy.
A comfy place to enjoy the sun and read a book and have some iced tea.
Steve is an artist and this little cottage is both his studio and gallery, where people can shop his colorful paintings right off the walls.
This is their cute dog Lulu.
The dining space lives large with banquette style seating along the window and chairs surrounding the other sides. Enough space for Steve and Carol and a few guests to dine.

An updated cottage kitchen. Steve is the main cook in this house.
Color and whimsical finds are everywhere, even the kitchen. I adore all the red and white.
The pillows on the bed are a nod to the sea outside their door.
Carol’s little cottage touches are found everywhere in their home.
They have decorated the outside as well as the inside. After all, where they live you can enjoy the outdoors much of the year.
And this is the sweet scene they pass by as they head for the ocean for sun and surf time.
Carol, I hope you and Steve are recovering nicely from your injuries. Your home is lovely and oh so cozy. Thanks for letting us have a tour.
