As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, a once cramped living space was transformed into a bright and cheery open plan dining, living and kitchen area. Sarah chose antique-style wicker chairs, a traditional hanging chandelier and charming bird wall prints to satisfy her clients' love of vintage cottage decor. A gorgeous built-in sideboard adds extra storage and is a chic way to display vintage finds.
An unusual T-shaped kitchen island, which allows those perched on the stools to face each other, anchors this cottage-style kitchen. Deep blue subway tiles contrast with the cabinetry, a take on the classic nautical pairing of white and navy. A muted yellow wall color and warm-toned wood floors create an inviting charm throughout the space.
A soft canopy ensconces the bed for a feminine, romantic appeal in this golden yellow bedroom. Table linens tie in with the brown and white bed linens, while plantation shutters help control the natural light.
Cottage design is a colorful, comfortable look characterized by pastel, botanical palettes and painted furniture with weathered finishes. Living room furnishings often include iron and wicker chairs covered with stylish floral cushions. You don't have to say goodbye to your favorite pieces of furniture just because they've seen a little wear and tear; the aged surfaces will make them fit in beautifully within a cottage-style space.
