Why I Thought You’d Love It

If you love a classic cottage, slightly beachy, mostly white with blue accents, minimal modern farmhouse-y kind of vibe, then today’s house tour is bound TO  ROCK YER WORLD!

Here’s a snippet from the real estate listing: “Expertly sited to take advantage of the views of lake, park and conservation area, this charming compound was created with special attention to all details…A separate carriage house includes a second floor bunk room, kitchenette, and a deck overlooking the lake.”

I am intrigued by the idea of three separate small structures adding up to 3,000 square feet, aren’t you? You can live in the main cottage in the middle, allow your adult children or aging parents to reside in the guest cottage, and still have the carriage house for guests! The project proves you truly can create a masterful private enclave with just one half of an acre.

Coastal Cottage Paint Colors

Here are paint colors designer Lisa Furey shared about her home.

The exterior white paint color, interior walls, cabinetry, and trim are all the same color. It just happens to be the exact paint color we chose for all of our interior walls, trim, ceilings, and anything we could touch with our paintbrushes here at the fixer upper back in 2015.

Yep. Designer Lisa Furey obviously is a kindred spirit!

    What really strikes me is the wonderful non-cluttered appeal of this house and the guest house. It is a place that one can truly be released from the stresses of the day and “just be”.

    I know, some people might say “Too much white! It’s boring!” (That’s what two of my sisters and mother would say verbatim..haha!) But to me, the fact that the interior is all one shade of white, makes the lines all disappear and makes for a wide-open spaces feel, a space where I can breathe. There is a lot of texture brought in via shiplap, wooden floors (and some accent areas) etc. that is just right. 🙂

    I imagine this is close to how I’d decorate a home if I lived near some coast….but honestly it is a look that can transcend any location and be gorgeous.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Such an eloquent description of the beauty of living with and loving white interiors. I agree that this look has a timelessness that transcends design genres, and I suppose that is why it resonates with me too as someone who avoids trends. Thanks for reading and all the thoughtful commentary. 🙂

    I am trying to decorate my house in a similar style, but on a budget. Any suggestions on where or what to look for.

      Absolutely! I have tons of suggestions and need to create a post since I’m sure there are plenty of others with the same desire…stay tuned. In the mean time, notice how the windows are airy and bare? Where you don’t have to have privacy, think about subtracting window coverings. The coffee table in this great room is pricey, but you could score one at the antique mall and paint it with white chalk paint for a similar look. Slipcovers get expensive, but if you can hunt down a big piece of fabric (white denim, linen, or other), you can cover your sofa with it to see how you like living with white. Who knows? Sometimes a lazy slip like this can work indefinitely since it simply gets tossed in the wash. The point is to make it look effortless. To begin, clear the room and only bring back the essentials. I have a post about no cost decorating here: https://www.hellolovelystudio.com/2019/04/how-to-decorate-chic-yet-cheap-9-no-cost-ideas.html
