Waterside Cottages defines the attributes of successful coastal decorating, so that anyone, anywhere, can create a casual waterfront atmosphere, even when the nearest body of water is a thousand miles away. Waterside property holds an undeniable appeal, as do the cozy, casual dwellings that exist there. Cottages near the water tend to be snug and modest, with exteriors painted in sun-reflecting whites, nautical blues, or playful colors. The interiors of these houses likewise avoid formality in favor of a casual approach. For many cottage owners, the goal is to create the illusion that their decor is somehow "thrown together," albeit very tastefully. Waterside Cottages showcases fourteen romantic waterside havens, from tidy New England beach cottages to bright tropical bungalows to a boathouse on the steep pine-studded banks of Michigan's Kalamazoo River.
