This multipurpose room functions as a laundry area and craft space. A bold blue island with cabinet space features a butcher block countertop that works great for messy crafts. In one corner, a niched wall works well for a stackable washer and dryer, and on the other side of the door, a built-in bookshelf displays art and knickknacks. A quaint powder room is nearby for convenience.
This quaint living room boasts all the comforts of a traditional home. With elements including exposed wood beams, vaulted ceilings, and shiplap walls my personal favorite detail is the stained wood trim around the windows. True to tiny home form, this space is also multifunctional. The TV wall conceals a full-size Murphy bed that can accommodate guest overflow.
The vision for the space was to create a livable, functional space for the homeowners. Their love for modern design paired perfectly with the quaint cottage architecture and geography of the home. By removing the one wall in the space that used to define the kitchen, the designers were able to open the floor plan up and include a breakfast bar lined with teal barstools.
The original kitchen were closed off to one another and structurally very different. With a few variations to the adjoining walls and the overall structure, the space was opened up tremendously. The end result is a quaint kitchen design that ties in the typical functionalities of a kitchen with the personality of the homeowner. This kitchen is now a central space for reading, cooking and entertaining.
There’s something very serene about an uncluttered bedroom. The Nordic design ethos puts a lot of significance on the beauty of an un-fussy space. This quaint bedroom with twin beds is a perfect example with its thick, inviting blankets and accessories you can count on one hand. It’s just enough to feel “lived in” but spare enough to keep your mind quiet and primed for a great night’s sleep.
A thin black pencil-like floral pattern wall embellishment adds design and style to this white bookshelf. The design is heavy enough to make an impact, but understated enough to not disrupt the quaint, artistic display on the shelving. In addition to books, candlesticks, a glass collage mirror and sculpture art bring some color to the space.
Several of the Oliver Hospitality properties play up the quaint, old-book smelling charm of the library. Knoxville's Oliver Hotel boasts the Peter Kern Library, a speakeasy with an emphasis on curated craft cocktails. The Hotel Clermont also boasts a reading room/library attached to its main level bar, where you can grab a book or a cocktail, or both.
A cottage cabin bedroom with a built in bed and shelves is painted in neutral off white. A view of another room from the open door shows a dining area and area rug. A simple hat hanging on the door provides a cozy touch while blue and white plaid curtains lend to the overall rustic feel of the space. A floral print and black and white photography on cream colored paneled walls and painted floor make this room a quaint, warm environment.
In the United Kingdom, Pale Hall’s luxurious property transports you back to a royal 19th century countryside estate. Laurie Betz of Betz Design Studio said the feeling of quaintness and Old World style, but having modern-day touches, is her favorite element of the British estate turned hotel.
This quaint dining space was designed with a Parisian café in mind. Elegant European rattan bistro chairs surround a mango wood dining table with classic cabriole legs, providing the space with cozy seating. Sunlight floods into the space, while apricot blossoms add to the outdoor bistro feel. Family photographs and vintage objects create an eclectic gallery wall among heirlooms, plants and books, making this space the perfect place to cozy up with a newspaper, croissant and cappuccino.
This dining space, designed by Emily Henderson of HGTV's Secrets from a Stylist features an English Country design scheme that gives the room an all-over quaint, decidedly proper feel. The gray and white wallpaper adds a decorative accent to the wooden drop-leaf table, which includes two black dining chairs at either end. A design tip from Emily: "When it comes to designing your own home, don't over think it. Go out and take pictures. Visualize things, have fun, play around!"
The vision for the space was to create a livable, functional space for the homeowners. Their love for modern design paired perfectly with the quaint cottage architecture and geography of the home. By removing the one wall in the space that used to define the kitchen, the designers were able to open the floor plan up and maximize the square footage and natural lighting. The living area features a comfy gray sectional paired with modern black chairs and coffee table. A geometric rug anchors the space and adds interest and dimension.
Like the lounge and kitchen in the main house, the guest rooms at the Woodhouse Lodge are all decorated in designer Megan Pflug's unique take on country chic. This quaint and relaxing bedroom flips the color palette of the main room while retaining the major elements of its style. Here the white walls are accented by pops of dark colors. Modern design patterns on the headboard and throw give the space a trendy aesthetic while the wood texture of the ceilings and floors maintain the feeling of a cabin in the woods.
By providing a quaint bubbling fountain feature from this Terra Cotta pottery, it allowed for a focal feature for both guests who arrive and those that depart since it is centered in both the entry walkway and the front door.
Due to Terra Cotta flooring being used throughout most of the interior of the house, it was critical to link the exterior by using the same material. By using it as a banding material, steps, some veneer and the pottery, the link was established without being overwhelming.
