When I dream of summer, I find myself imagining the ideal cottage. Would it be modern, storybook-like, all white or traditional? To be honest, I love all styles. In my search for beautiful country homes I came across a B.C. island cabin designed by Julie Curtis Design and originally featured in House & Home's May 2004 issue. Here are a few photos of the cottage from Julie's online portfolio (I think it still looks great!):
Painted ceilings and beams evoke quintessential cottage style. A farmhouse sink and antique ladderback chairs enhance the country feel. Shaker-style panels encase the tub for a fitted look.
An all-white bedroom creates a soothing backdrop for a worn wood stool and distressed furniture. The built-in closet doesn't require doors as the layout is perfect for display.
