Cottage-Style Home With Brick and Cedar-Shake Siding
This ranch home combines a variety of building materials to create an adorable cottage look. The brick siding, cedar shakes, slate patio tiles and stone planters mix beautifully with the swirled topiaries, pine-needle mulch and flowering window boxes.
A brick fireplace adds a cozy cottage feel to this bedroom. Bamboo blinds and linen curtains hide a wall of windows while creating a lovely backdrop for the heavy, wood bed. Hand-picked accessories add charm to the laid-back space: a woven rug, upholstered bench and wooden mirror.
A claw-foot tub painted a deep terra cotta is the focal point in this mint green bathroom. White beadboard frames the tub, while colorful art and printed towels add pattern to the space. A handheld shower head allows for a deep clean while using the tub.
Green Cottage Living Room With Slipcovered Furniture
A neutral slipcovered sofa and armchair lend a casual feel to this bright green space. Decorative hangings, including art, a clock and a mirror, fill the wall behind the sofa, adding personality to the room.
Pea green shaker style cabinets provide soft color without distracting from other elements of the kitchen. A simple rustic wood table serves as a kitchen island. A whitewashed vaulted wood ceiling makes the space feel airy and bright.
This friendly dining room feels sunny and bright with natural light streaming in a set of French doors. The design is warm and a just right amount of elegant with wainscoting, a pretty patterned wallpaper and a chandelier.
The adjacent water closet allows the home office and den to also function as an extra guest suite. When visitors are in town, they can sleep on the sofa, keep their belongings in the closet and have their own private spot to shower.
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.
This living and dining room combo features cool blue-green walls, a white brick fireplace and a neutral sectional in the seating area. A round table and a pendant light fixture complete the dining space.
A complete renovation turned this formerly drab bungalow in the heart of Jamestown, a small island off the coast of Newport, Rhode Island, into a charming and functional cottage. The design team added a gabled dormer and covering above the front door, as well as a master suite at the rear. The home's style complements the owner's love of gardening, as well as its East Coast locale.
