Let’s tour the home of a longtime blogger buddy today! A Cozy Cottage Lake House with lots of black and white has been lovingly made over through the years by a well-known and much admired blogger at My Sweet Savannah.
My Sweet Savannah’s author, Melaine, has created the most charming cottage for her family, and I’m so thrilled to take you on a tour of it today! I have been following this popular blog for years and never go away uninspired. In fact, I’m often inspired to run to the craft store since her DIYs are consistently THAT good.
Melaine says she prefers a mainly neutral palette and likes to add color in small doses, and her interiors remind me how effective black, white, and rustic work as sort of a holy trinity of modern farmhouse style.
Let’s tour pretty rooms and score cozy cottage decor ideas from My Sweet Savannah!
Cozy Cottage Lake House: My Sweet Savannah
Exterior: Before & After
Cozy Cottage Porch
I love how Melaine decorates her covered entry as thoughtfully as her interior spaces.
Melaine has inspired so many of us over the years with her fabulous makeovers – this bar cart she painted white did not start out so cute.
And this dress form makeover is from a few years back, but it still blows me away!
Cozy Cottage Kitchen
What a light and bright white kitchen with classic cottage and modern farmhouse style! There are multiple bright ideas in here the designer came up with, including barn doors to a pantry, coffee bar, and something you rarely see in a cottage kitchen…a sexy black sink!
Aren’t the beveled backsplash tiles beautiful? I had my eye on these when we were selecting tile for our fixer upper’s kitchen. If you like the look, you can find a beveled subway tile in a 3″ x 6″ size RIGHT HERE.
Cozy Cottage Coffee Station
Cozy Cottage Living Room
Don’t the framed black and white photos above the sofa make a beautifully graphic and personal statement?
I’m just crazy about the tone on tone with light touches of contrast. I recently spied this cute cottage-y sofa you might like.
It can be tricky to find a “just right” leather club chair! I love the proportions (not too chubby!) on Melaine’s. See more options RIGHT HERE. Also if you love this look of an antique brass modern retro floor lamp, SEE THIS ONE…it’s super chic.
Here’s another example of Melaine’s innovative ideas for repurposing what someone else might just toss. This black frame was part of packaging that came with furniture shipped to her. She made this rustic wall decor with leftover pieces of wood she painted in various shades of beachy blue-grey.
and if you loved the rustic modern dining room in this home, you will love the style you’ll find RIGHT HERE!
Hope you decorate the new week with random acts of kindness, friends.
Peace to you right where you are.
