If you are anything like us gals at Cotswold Marketplace... then you're most likely a fan of a day in the sun & sweet relaxation on the coast! Why not bring a little of "the beach" into your room design? The cool colors & serene feel of a COASTAL CHIC palette can create a charming look for your home!


One of our vendors, The Pretty Perch, recently brought in this beautiful cream linen sofa! We are loving the lines & tufting on this piece. Allow, your upholstery to make a statement by adding pillows with pizazz! Our pillow guru, Judy Brown, is at it again keeping up the the latest prints & patterns... how great is the layering of the ivory + teal geometric fabric paired with the aztec design?

If you aren't soaking up the sun at the coast - THEN LET YOUR HOME BE THE ESCAPE that reminds you of the place you love! If you are headed out on the town with your girlfriends or a date night with your hubby... how about white jeans & teal silk top paired with these beautiful baubles? And, if you are wanting to freshen up your dated sunroom then cover your walls with a charming paper design like the one featured above!

We are big fans of allowing artwork to serve as FOCAL POINT in your room design! And, this original abstract by the incredibly talented NC artist, Carol Bodiford, perfectly captures the COLORS of the coast. Carol is known for her breathtaking landscapes - but, the coastal abstracts she has brought into the marketplace lately truly tell a story & can certainly bring LIFE TO YOUR WALLS!


So, we encourage you to fill your home & your life with the serenity & charm of the coast! We hope you will visit soon & leave the marketplace feeling refreshed, inspired, & coastal chic!
