Functioning as a foyer, this enclosed front porch sets the tone for the home. Sage green walls and linen curtains create a soft atmosphere, while neutral rugs define the two areas: the lounge area and the mudroom area.
To put a coastal spin on cottage style, it's smart to consider elements made of rope. In order to keep this bedroom lounge area well-lit and packed with coastal cottage charm, a lamp made with thick nautical rope is paired with a slipcovered sofa and charming do-it-yourself wall art.
Traditional Cottage-Style Kitchen with Updated Appliances
The family wanted a space that blended vintage charm with the conveniences of modern appliances, so they chose traditional elements, such as the gold accents and wood trim, and added modern-day touches, like the stainless steel oven and a farmhouse sink. The end result is an overall cottage-style feel.
The exterior facade of this charming coastal cottage was previously a drab, shingled brown. During the whole-house renovation, the designers reconfigured the exterior and lightened the color of the formerly dark green trim, embracing the region's prevailing architectural style and taking maximum advantage of its lush, wooded lot. A sunny brick patio offers a perfect spot for morning coffee.
This cottage kitchen features a bold backsplash, decorative woodwork and a scalloped-shade pendant. The white farmhouse sink complements the white countertops amidst the seafoam green cabinetry and island.
Designer Regina Bilotta of Bilotta Kitchens found the perfect Chambers stove to fit the family's request of a 1950s-inspired kitchen. Adding to the vintage style, she incorporated a tin ceiling, reclaimed wood and distressed finishes.
Mint-colored subway wall tiles create a serene setting in this cozy bathroom. The frameless glass shower door adds a modern touch while the white, porcelain, hexagonal floor tile adds light texture and contrasting shape.
Green Cottage-Style Playroom With Sofa and Tea-Party Table
Beadboard walls, a rattan loveseat with washable cushions, hardwood flooring and child-sized furniture make this cottage-style space a durable playroom for kids and stylistically mature for adults. The dark wood armoire is perfect for hiding kid-related clutter.
The playful basket-weave, green-and-white wallpaper makes a great background for the display of kids’ artwork. Green cushions line the banquette seating, a retro pendant lamp illuminates the wood tabletop, and a bamboo blind sits atop the window.
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.
A whitewashed, antique wooden bookcase provides the ideal spot for featured keepsakes in this bedroom. For a balanced look, books are displayed both vertically and horizontally, then interspersed with an interesting mix of objects ranging in size, color, and shape.
