Photo Gallery: Classic Cottage Style
You can’t go wrong with classic outdoor furniture for lakeside lounging. This particular deck takes in sweeping views of the water, making it perfect for midday relaxation or entertaining at sunset.
The stone fireplace of this cottage serves as a dramatic focal point for the living room, and references the natural elements outside. The fire box has been built up off the floor, which balances the substantial chimney. A minimalist mantle blends in with the stone.
A cherry-red fridge and on-trend grey kitchen island modernize wood cabinets and traditional accessories, such as the hurricane pendant light and painted-wood bar chairs.
The rustic stone feature wall in this space plays up the height of the room. Wall-to-wall glass doors create a sense of openness and let in plenty of light.
Pine boards and a vintage dresser offer country charm in this room. The mirror multiples the light from the fixture and visually expands the space. Crown moulding on the mirror also creates a sense of drama and height. A cosy white chair provides the perfect spot to relax.
Inject style into your bathroom with contrast. Here, the simple white bathtub pops against a natural stone feature wall and warm wooden walls. Tiny starfish add interest to an otherwise dark wall.
The second bathroom takes advantage of a great view with a large window and sheer curtains. The artfully-distressed clawfoot bathtub is balanced by fresh white walls and cupboards and light wood floors and trim.
A fresh, natural palette and traditional country textiles evoke a cosy, comfortable vibe in this space. The abundance of sofa seating and decorative touches, like lamps and side tables, contribute to an inviting outdoor room.
This bunkie features classic cottage style elements. The cedar shingles and roof colour echo the main cottage, while the carriage house-inspired doors add impact to the diminutive building.
