Molly Frey’s White Seaside Cottage

We are such fans of Molly Frey interior design and today’s post is all about Molly and white.  Some find decorating in white to be boring; however we find it soothing, relaxing and less distracting than other colors.  When you have a large amount of natural beauty around your home (such as the ocean, forests, lakes etc.) then a white color palette showcases the exterior beauty of your surrounding instead of competing with it. Molly Frey Design is a residential design firm specializing in new construction, remodels, kitchens, baths and architectural and interior design. Her work has been featured in lots of decorating magazines such as Traditional Home, New England Home and Better Homes and Gardens. We’re featuring Molly’s Marblehead Cottage interior design with all its beautiful whiteness!       The homes that Molly designs are beautiful, livable spaces that tend to be clean, uncluttered, and casual.  If you like this style of space then you may wish to peruse some of her other interior design work: Molly Frey Design Portfolio Molly Frey Design on Houzz Molly Frey Design Studio...
