This cottage is only 650 square feet—basically one large room with a bath and kitchenette off to the side. Instead of trying to work a sleeping area into the layout, the designer opted for a Murphy bed stored vertically within the wall, and hid it behind this oversized woven walnut door.
Wet Bar With Marine-Blue Tile and Mirrored Backsplash
Deep blue mosaic tiles surround an inset mirror in this cottage kitchen wet bar. The mirror lends the illusion of expanding the room and directs light around so that the bar doesn't become a visual dark hole.
The rough metal legs and weather-wood top on this sofa table add a touch of industrial style to this entryway. The scraped hardwood floor adds more texture while the deep blue sofa and ikat curtains provide color and softness.
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 enchanting entry features an antique foyer table, a high-backed settee and a collection of all-white earthenware. Dark hardwood floors are topped with a knobbed area rug, while the whitewashed walls have a smooth adobe finish.
