WISH Wednesday #54

I have been absolutely and completely obsessed with Margot Austin's PEI getaway for weeks so I thought I would show you my favourite room for WISH Wednesday.  I kid you not when I say that I couldn't stop thinking about the cottage one night as I was trying to go to sleep - I was thinking about where the bathroom was.  The next day I watched the video yet again and my suspicions proved correct.  The bathroom is near the stairs.  

House and Home

Margot and her husband painted the interior of Whale Cottage white and the floors gray so there is a nice clean background for simple furnishings and some nautical island decor. I love the relaxed vibe and the colour palette of blues and grays. 

You can see more photos of her adorable cottage here, and watch the video of Margot giving a tour here, and see some 'before' photos here.  Can you tell that I'm quite taken!  Here are some of my favourite parts - 
  • the marine blue in the mud room entry
  • the penny round tiles and the enamel sink in the kitchen
  • the rope railing for the stairs
  • the yellow headboard and antique chair covered in black (or is it navy?) gingham in the master bedroom
  • and, of course, the whale weathervane on the roof of Whale Cottage.

Pin It


  1. Ha! Too funny! I ran out to the thrift store after watching that video to find some old nautical artwork. No luck though. :( it really is the perfect little cottage.

  2. I am going to watch the video and read the article. This little living room is darling! We love anything nautical around here.


  3. Ha! You know I love anything to do with this cottage - I can almost smell the sea when I look at it. Someday I long to have one of my very own! But until then... I will also dream of Margot's. :)

  4. It is such a cute cottage (as is all of Margot's homes!). I think the blue entry is my favourite part. I usually fall asleep dreaming about rooms and renovations. Nothing wrong with that, ha ;)
