how bout some 'Bungalow Chic'

If you open up the pages of this month's Blueprint, you will stubble upon a lovely little bungalow, that is not only chic and cozy, but design-wise very much obtainable! Located in Greenport, New York, this little piece of heaven serves as a weekend getaway for owner Elena Colombo. So those of you still looking for beach house inspiration...do enjoy!


Love these tree trunk stools, which was a DIY project including many layers of fire-engine red enamel paint!


Other elements include a Moroccan rug from westelm.com and sofa pillows from wshome.com.


A yellow/green, blue, and white kitchen...only wish I could pull something like this off. So inviting!


Looking for a similar dining table, this one is from seabrookclassics.com, and those same chairs to go with, callled the "Holz" from dwr.com.


Simple bedrooms with a lot of character. Some elements include a red quilt is from garnethill.com and the lamp from noiny.com.


Love the indoor/outdoor feel of this space! Note there are no windowcoverings to give the owner clear view of Shelter Island. Shown here is a side table from mgandbw.com.

Those trunk stools are fantastic. I want to make some. Wish that there were DIY instructions. Is enamel paint a certain kind of paint?

Oh I love this feature in that issue, that living room color combination really stuck with me, I have been hunting for tree trunks ever since!
