Atlanta designer, Suzanne Kasler, never disappoints and this beach cottage in Georgia featured in House Beautiful is another winner! Using pinks, soft blues, and gilded accents, Suzanne transformed this Sea Island cottage into a peaceful abode.
I wouldn’t have thought that I would have loved all the pinks and blues together, but it really is a beautiful house. Going anywhere close to pink after all the mauve phases we went through, would make me want to run the other direction. But of course, Suzanne does it masterfully.
So, take a look and let me know what you think about pink and blue together.
Love the dining room.
Could you live with this color pink?
The gilded accents are just lovely and I love the nailhead on this chair. Gold is making a big comeback, have you noticed?
Beautiful breakfast nook. I was a little surprised that she used such a fussy window treatment, but it is very pretty.
Here are the blues.
Love this desk.
And this whole room is pretty.
What did you think about this coastal cottage? Do you like it with all the pinks and blues?

I like many of the furniture pieces, but I’m not a fan of all of the pinks and blues together. They are too nursery for me. Maybe a different shade of blue would be more to my liking.

Wow….I really love all that soft blue and the pink is just beautiful…so calming. When can I move in???

If I had that cottage with it’s beautiful furnishings and those lovely windows, I could live with the pinks. Otherwise, no thanks. 😀
Beautiful home – I think it’s a little fussy for a beach home. I prefer a more casual look. I do like some of the furniture pieces. That desk does not look usable to me. Like I said, fussy. But always a great posting from you, Rhoda!
I think the home is beautiful, but it does seem too fussy for a beach house, especially if she doesn’t live there year-round. We have been on St. Simons Island this week, just around the corner from Sea Island. I grew up going to St. Simons and we used to love driving on Sea Island and wondering what the insides of those houses would look like. Now I have an idea … thanks!
Another vote for beautiful but too fussy. Maybe it is just too different from beach accommodations I have experienced. But, if it were mine, I could force myself to live there.
Count me in with the beautiful but too fussy group. It’s a little more formal than I’d like for a beach house. Plus… those particular shades of pink and blue and too baby’s nursery for me. Something more in the aqua and coral palette would suit me better.
Beautiful home, tho.
Hi Rhoda, Love love the beach cottage, I could not live with the pink walls, but all the blue is wonderful. I did a post last week called Beach elegance, this post could have slipped in beautifully. I showed images of what I could live with in a Beach house and Suzanne Kasler hits the mark for me perfectly. Happy weekend,Kathysue

I agree with the majority. I think the pink and blue are too nursery looking and just too much. Definitely a lot too fussy. Love some of the furniture pieces, but if you took that same furniture, I know you would make it look a lot better.
I think it is a beautiful home and the color combos work well together. However, it’s a little uptight for my taste to be a beach home. Too nice to actually relax and let loose there…would be afraid I would mess something up. Do love some of her furniture choices.
I’m with the commenters who think it’s beautiful, but a bit too fussy for a beach house. I think the furnishings are gorgeous, but they don’t read ‘put your feet up’ to me. Still I would gladly take that home in a heartbeat. Thanks for sharing.

My favorite piece in the photos is the looooong chippy white console with the baskets underneath. I agree that the kitchen window treatment just does not fit in. Thank you for posting those lovely photos…we can just pick and choose what we would like to copy or not!
Very pretty and love the windows but a bit fussy and formal for my beach tastes. I would prefer something more relaxed and kick your feet up. I cant see long dinners in those dining room chairs but the pink is very pretty.
I don’t know if I could live in this house with my very messy family BUT I would love to visit there by myself and a bag full of books to read 🙂
Too stuffy for me…and even more so for a beach home… sorry…
Beach Homes need to be more relaxed…
Rhoda… you would do a much better job.
A home needs to feel inviting… this is not inviting…
Plus… I just got back from a beach vacation at a beach home… It was gorgeous and I was comfortable and relaxed… and I felt invited the whole time I was there.

I love the furnishings! Does anyone have a clue as to where that beautifulwhite and gold console is from?

I hope you’re having a great time in Calif. This beach house is too formal for me, too, but I do love that shade of pink. Our formal living and dining room in the house I grew up in had that same shade of pink. Even as a child, I thought it was lovely. Eventually, it got painted over with a dull beige. I thought it was horrible. I guess I’ve had an interest in color since I was young.
I love the house and the colors, although I do not think it’s what I would want for a beach house. It’s very feminine, doesn’t look at all like a family home.
Rhoda hope you are h aging fun to the max!
Hi Rhoda…I agree that this is probably too formal for my style of beach house, since we like to be able to come and go from the beach and I’d worry someone would sit on the couch in a wet swimsuit or walk across the carpet in sandy flip-flops. I DO however like the pink room with that floral hanging. I could go for a pink feature wall but a whole room??? Not that shade of pink! I also love all those windows.
