Have you met my friend Sarah from A Beach Cottage?
In an act of bravery and passion, she and her husband moved their family from England and set off on an adventure to Coastal Australia. At A Beach Cottage, Sarah shares her projects, decorating ideas and ways to achieve a comfortable and casual home without spending a fortune.
In her own words, "I started blogging to document the journey of our fixer-upper cottage. But it has become so much more than a blog for me, it has provided me with a place to fulfill my passion for casual, laid-back decor, vintage coastal style and more has become for me a cathartic outlet at the end of the day"
I'm so glad that Sarah shares her coastal style on her blog. She is, indeed, the queen of vintage, whitewashed style. Every time I visit her online home, I feel like I'm breathing in a little bit of her life by the sea. And trust me, the air is beautiful there.
I am completely in love with her whitewashed, timeless style. Here are just a few of my favorite posts from A Beach Cottage.

To celebrate some changes going on at her blog and her feature in Artful Blogging magazine, Sarah is offering a wonderful giveaway. One lucky reader at A Soft Place to Land will receive a set of four beachy putty stripe placemats and four matching napkins.
They'll arrive to you directly from the shores of Australia. If you're lucky, they'll still smell of fresh sea air.
