This cottage style cream kitchen uses carved cabinets and pendant lighting to add dimension. A granite kitchen island splits the space into two parts and provides plenty of preparation and cooking space.
Even the guest cottages in the waterside community of River Dunes, near New Bern, N.C., use high-tech, low-maintenance AZEK materials, whereas traditional Craftsman-style buildings have used wood for the exteriors. The advantages of this material are numerous for homes near the water.
Soft, pastel walls and flirty, feminine accents make up this practical but pretty bedroom. Packed with cottage-style touches, this room features a spring-like palette and a small desk area that can also function as a makeup vanity.
Full of abundant detail, this cottage style kitchen offers a little of it all. Peek-a-boo cabinets with lighting draw the eye upwards to the captivating tray ceiling. From there, the black pendant lights brings you back down to the dark gray marble countertops that sit atop white detailed cabinets. The blue and white plate detail and homey patterened wallpaper makes this cottage vibe come to life.
The great room in the HGTV Dream Home 2012 is a sea of calming blue and serene cream complemented by interior stone cladding around the fireplace. The ceiling features mortise-and-tenon timber trusses and the room is completed with cottage-style furniture.
A darker, earthy green was selected for the walls in this room and a new rattan pendant replaced the old ceiling fan for a decorative touch. Two nightstands and a bench that was reupholstered in a kiwi green suede were added alongside a wood bed and 6-drawer dresser. A few shimmery art pieces add a little sparkle around the room and offset the earthy, natural feeling in the other pieces.
This charming kitchen is opened up with a peep through window over the sink looking into the living area. The white floor to ceiling cabinets provides plenty of storage while the lite upper cabinets and under cabinet lighting allows the space more warmth. Dark hardwood floors add depth and dimension complimenting the white cabinetry elegantly.
Wood support beam and a classic chandelier paired with a mix of black and white cabinets make this a warm, classic space. The white cabinets provide a highlight feature, while the upper and lower cabinetry lights create the perfect ambiance. The large island with marble countertop provides plenty of space to work and eat.
This cottage bedroom combines old and new pieces, some weather-worn, to create a lived-in comfortable space. A mix of light and dark painted furnishings are unified by the neutral tones of the bedding and rug.
