Tybee Island in Georgia has so many colorful little houses that I love looking through the listings for that area. When someone asked if I’d ever been to Tybee, I started to say, “Yes!” But then I remembered it was only in my dreams. Darnit. Here’s one that charmed me — a colorful beach rental called “Cottage on the Green.”
The house originally served as soldiers’ quarters during the Spanish-American War. I have a feeling it wasn’t as colorful — or as comfortable — back then!
It was decorated by Jane Coslick, who has a knack for mixing new and vintage, and who never shies away from bright color. She’s transformed so many beach cottages that she should be called the Cottage Whisperer.
The cottage features original art from local artists.
The Jenny Lind beds in “azure” are from Land of Nod. How fun are they?
There’s even a sleeping porch for those balmy summer nights on the island…
This is only one side of the charming two-unit vacation rental. For more photos and information, visit Mermaid Cottages (a site I’m on more than I’d like to admit!) to see both Unit A and Unit B. Also be sure to check out designer Jane Coslick’s blog where she talks about the projects she’s currently working on.
