Do you ever have trouble determining what your decorating style truly is? I love both farmhouse and cottage style equally and keep going back and forth between the two. Sigh. I think my indecisiveness is based on the fact that there are many similar elements with both styles … like bead board, the color white, simple decorating elements, etc. Today’s tour showcases a storybook cottage, but you’ll find some farmhouse details while you’re looking around.
A white picket fence wraps around this charming storybook cottage while a large porch welcomes visitors. Let’s take a step inside and see the rest of this beautiful home!
Gorgeous wood floors run throughout the home. The kitchen is modernized but attention to detail keeps cottage charm intact.
Another view of the kitchen shows the open concept floor plan. Plenty of windows let in natural light and really let the floors shine, showing off their slightly aged appearance. Love these floors!
Contemporary style furniture keeps this storybook cottage from looking too cutesy.
The old brick of the fireplace gives a nod to the past while the white mantel adds fresh appeal.
The dining space has tons of cottage appeal with its rich wood table, galvanized chairs, and painted horizontal paneling. The farmhouse style lighting fixture is the crowning piece!
The beautiful laundry room has a bit of whimsy with makeshift “Welcome” letters suspended above the farmhouse sink.
The master bedroom sports a 4-poster bed. Café curtains provide privacy while allowing natural light to shine in.
In the kid’s bedroom, color adds a fun cottage dimension.
A beautiful soaker tub takes center stage beneath the windows with flowing romantic curtains. This charming storybook cottage is pretty and functional, making great use of its smaller footprint.
