Hey guys! It’s Kristy from Starfish Cottage.
I am so happy to be guest posting today on one of my favorite coastal blogs, Sand and Sisal- thanks Kim!!
In case you have never visited Starfish Cottage, let me introduce myself…
I live with my husband, two daughters, recently adopted son (just finalized this past April, yay!!) and our large yellow lab on the West Coast of Florida in a little house we like to call “Starfish Cottage”.
Several years ago, we decided to leave the rat-race of a large, land-locked city and move back to Florida for warmer weather and a more laid-back lifestyle.
Our little house is located on a saltwater canal and we love boating and beaching…so it’s only natural that our home is decorated in the coastal style. Starfish Cottage is filled with seashells, slipcovers and seagrass rugs; as well as antiques, vintage finds, and natural accents.
I also love updating our home seasonally, so our little cottage is constantly transforming with the seasons (much to my families dismay!)

I also love to cook and entertain, and you can click HERE to see lots of fabulous recipes.
As a professional interior designer for 18 years, my blog is full of easy decorating tips.

I recently opened two shops- my online Etsy shop, click HERE and a brick and mortar shop at The Southshore Shabby Shack in Apollo Beach, FL (118 Flamingo Drive).
Both shops are filled with coastal gifts, decor and more, so check them out!
