Step inside this charming Wrightsville Beach cottage, where color and pattern mingle beautifully. Shop this home in our boutique! To update older seaside homes like this North Carolina marsh house, designer Liz Carroll has the solution: color and lots of it! In the living room, she taps the pretty shades of the landscape outside, like the soft blues of the sky and the rich chartreuse of the marsh grass, to make a big statement—one that repeats in the adjoining dining room, and again in the kitchen with its peekaboo backsplash tiles. Punches of green continue to play in both the fun-filled bunkroom and the electric guest quarters. But Carroll borrows inspiration from elsewhere, too: the poppy red color on the wallpaper repeats on the curtains and accessories in another bedroom and the bright Trina Turk fabric sets the palette in a second-floor retreat. It’s obvious, right from the front door, that there’s something for everyone in this happy family home! Just take a cue from its look-at-me hues and start plotting out a palette of your own.
