I thought since posting the exterior images of many of my recent favorite cottages, I would do a post featuring some of the rooms you might see once your walk through the cottage door…
This neutral palate would make any living room comfortable and inviting, but the smaller size seems like something you’d find in a smaller/cottage-sized home.
A small kitchen most certainly can be an efficient kitchen, like the one below.
I loved this image for it’s clever use of the cabinet and counter; the table for two is so charming. Toile lined cabinets seal the deal for me.
This small bathroom is a favorite, the black and white framed photographs and the white seem so crisp and clean for the space.
Hubby had this Ikea chair (below) during a work assignment in Oakland some years ago. The Ikea ottoman has storage space in it and the chair is very comfortable.
I like this idea, using the space between the studs in a wall for storage works well for this tiny bath. I haven’t incorporated this into any of our renovated space but I may one day!
Isn’t this bedroom cute, love the paneled, slopping ceiling.
Talk about making good use of space with clever storage solutions.
Even a cottage can find room for a garden work bench…
…and room for doggies is a MUST!
Maybe even a cat!
There are always ways to save space and a small home/cottage forces me to be more creative with storage and to edit some of the “stuff” collected along life’s path. What do you think? I love hearing from you.
