Hermosa Beach, CA


Sun bleached beach cruisers leaned on the cottage steps while friends clapped sand off flip flops and leave them at the door. Inside, the wine chilled, a playlist looped and laughter rang. Memories of my first cottage are tinged sweet like the last moments of a pink sunset dipping into the Pacific. 

At just over 800 square feet, my Hermosa Beach, CA bungalow beckoned for a moniker. In a childhood filled with books, every girl had a home with a name: Orchard House, Green Gables, Tara, and Little House. These homes were characters among the pages, reflecting the story of a spunky female protagonist inside its’ walls. So, it was that this cottage needed a name as relaxed and easy as the beach towns of Southern California. Seersucker Cottage was born.
