Unlike most people, I am not a big fan of the coast -- my preference is for the mountains. I also prefer warm colors to cool, so watery blues, greens, and greys seldom find their way into my home's interior design. However, there is something so tranquil about the painting above that I find myself drawn to it despite the seaside theme. While I may not want a beach cottage, this picture did inspire me to create a style board for just such a place:

What a calming retreat a room decorated like this would be -- I may prefer a more earthy design and warmer color palette, but I can understand why so many people love coastal style!
