A barn door, which works beautifully with the modern farmhouse aesthetic seen throughout the home, conceals a stacking washer and dryer to maximize square footage. A sleek glass coffee table keeps from visually crowding the room, creating a sense of more space.
White walls, large windows and a vaulted ceiling make this bedroom feel light, breezy and open. Reclaimed heart pine floors offer warmth and contrast. Woven wood shades allow light to filter through while still providing shade and relief from heat.
This coastal bedroom for kids is painted in a neutral Heron Plume from Sherwin Williams. Decorative paddles and artwork from Home Goods adorn the walls, and twin beds from Universal Furniture are dressed in blue and white linens and pillows from Pottery Barn Kids.
A white marble countertop creates a chic contrast with this kitchen island's black cabinetry. Wicker and wood bar chairs bring in some warm, natural texture. Glass bell pendant lights keep with the bright and open look.
The sunrises and sunsets at these quaint, beautiful cottages create a view that is simply spectacular with the feel of getting lost in a simpler time with all the modern amenities.
The two car garage at the front of this lakeside cottage gives the family a safe space to park their cars and a private entrance to the home.
The small cottage lake house boasts a loft guest space that houses two twin beds, plenty of built-in storage, access to a kitchenette, a dining table, a desk and a dresser. To fit all of this functionality into the private space without making it feel cluttered, designers exposed the high ceilings and used an elegant, neutral color palette.
A vaulted ceiling, clean white walls and a front door with large glass panels help make this small kitchen and living area feel bright and open. White Shaker cabinetry conceals a small refrigerator, full-sized dishwasher, microwave and toaster oven. A farmhouse sink and barn-style pendant lights speak to a modern farmhouse aesthetic — as does the open shelving with beadboard backing. Saddle-style barstools provide additional seating.
Without the white cabinets, this kitchen would feel too dark and cramped. A combination of dark-stained wood cabinets and white cabinets balance each other out, with one adding warmth and the other adding brightness. The marble countertop island also serves as a breakfast bar to anchor the space.
