This once-drag bungalow is enlivened with a new gable dormer and petite front porch, turning it into a charming summer cottage with a storybook appeal. The design team added a small master suite to the original structure that provides privacy for a lush garden at the back of the house. A sage green picket fence ties in with the exterior trim and adds to the charm.
A built-in banquette with easy-to-clean striped fabric is the perfect kid-friendly choice for a cozy breakfast area. Drawers underneath provide extra storage, and a beaded chandelier makes for a striking focal point.
White Cottage Open Kitchen and Dining Room With Ladder
To counter the limited square footage in this home, designers combined the kitchen, breakfast nook and dining room into one larger, easy-flow space. Upper cabinets are accessed by a fun library ladder. The dining table is hand-crafted out of live-edge spalted elm.
To define the breakfast nook, the banquette and surrounding trimwork is painted a striking blue. Classic Windsor chairs sit opposite the leather-cushioned banquette, surrounding the farmhouse-inspired table.
The sisal area rug defines the cozy sitting area and adds warm texture to the space. Cushy poufs provide extra seating to the comfortable sectional and cane back armchair. A wall of French doors bathe the bright white space in natural light.
Shades of Pink in this Bathroom Make the Space Pop
In this bathroom, the different hues of pink make the space pop. The chandelier is made from pale pink milk glass, while bolder colors of pink make up the rug. The salmon colored bathtub, which is the statement piece of this space, is accented by pink floral wall curtains that tie all of these shades of pink together.
White Cottage Sunroom With Tan Wicker Furniture and Tile Floor
This cottage sunroom is fully surrounded with floor to ceiling windows. Tan wicker furniture decorates the room. Four chairs are placed around a circular glass table, a bigger armchair with ottoman is posted in the corner, and another sitting area is behind the glass covered coffee table. A darker wicker ceiling fan and light hangs next to the skylight.
A trio of oversized pendant lights make a statement without taking up any visual space in this cottage-inspired kitchen. The expansive kitchen island is designed for the whole family to gather around with industrial-style barstools. Blue trimwork and cabinets reflect the surrounding lake views.
A banquette is the perfect solution for getting a crowd around a table. With comfortable leather cushions and textured throw pillows, the banquette is not only a great family dining spot, but also a great spot to relax. Slate tile grounds the space, which pairs rich blue walls with a white tongue-and-groove ceiling.
The brick wall housing the fireplace and TV is painted white along with the rest of the walls to create a light and airy environment. Blue and tan throw pillows add a splash of color the gray sectional, which is the perfect spot for the whole family to gather. A sisal area rug grounds the room and adds tactile appeal.
Cottage Kitchen With Gas Range and Butcher-Block Island
Everything about this spacious kitchen epitomizes elegance, from the hand-cast cabinet hardware to the custom tile backsplash to the pendant light over the butcher-block-topped island. The soft yellow wall color allows bright white cabinetry to stand out in the space.
Woven baskets in this family room are perfectly for stowing away toys or books for quick clean up. For a personal touch, as well as design contrast, a large horse portrait fills the wall behind the sectional.
Blue and White Cottage Kitchen with Arched Windows
This blue and white country cottage kitchen features white cabinets, white columns, and arched picture windows. A rustic farmhouse table with intricate wood carvings serves as the focal point of the room. A vaulted ceiling extends the space and gives this kitchen an open, airy feel.
A small, round dining table and four wooden chairs provide this beautiful kitchen with eat-in functionality. Fresh white cabinets lend a breezy, open feel to the space, and hardwood floors lend warmth.
