Coastal Cool in Saskatchewan




I fell madly in love with this floor when my reader Meghan from Regina,
Saskatchewan sent me these photos. She and her husband just bought and renovated their first home, relying on a strict budget and inspiration from the design blogosphere. The couple spent the last 3 years living in Halifax, Nova Scotia going to school, so the their porch is their ode to the coast and to the ocean-side cottage they can never have on the prairie! (I hear ya sister!) I know you are all wondering what paint she used (Cloverdale oil paint "Aqua Infusion" - #7506). Don't you love the red from the retro table and chairs?? Red, white and turquoise, my kind of 4th of July!!! I hope you all have one fantastic and safe holiday weekend!!! :D

What a truly charming space right down to the sweet puppy with the dangling paw. Red, white, and turquoise is so your king of 4th:)

Have a good one.

That is such a refreshing space! I also live in Regina (small world, right?) and it's so awesome to know that there are such creative folks sharing the city!

Erin--You just made my day with this post! I've been following your blog for a couple of years now, and its been beyond inspirational to me. I'm a Minneapolis girl now, but grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan and moved to MN 2 years ago. Thanks for the design shout-out to my homeland--the pictures show a really soothing, refreshing place....feels like home!

Aqua & white with red as an accent is one of my favorite color combos. Fresh and clean.

As usual Erin, you don't disappoint. Yep, love that floor. If I had hardwood floors I'd paint them in a heart-beat. Alas, I have laminate. Hmmmm,I wonder if one could paint laminate?

Anyway, happy 4th to all.
