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.
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 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.
The entry to this quaint Jamestown, Rhode Island, cottage is both charming and functional, with a built-in bench that's perfect for stopping to put on or take off shoes. Nautical-style light fixtures hang from the peaked, beamed ceiling. Copious white-painted woodwork fits with the bungalow's East Coast cottage style, giving the home a sense of place from the moment a visitor steps inside.
Having an appealing spot to drop coats, shoes and other accessories as you come in the door will keep your space looking organized. Here, a cozy bench is perfect for slipping on your shoes, a coat rack holds hats, jackets and more, and baskets underneath the bench are perfect for stowing away other items.
A navy blue front door makes a colorful welcome in this home's foyer, especially when paired with the red walls of the adjacent dining room. A Roman shade lets down over the door's windows for more privacy.
