Dream Home: Cottage Edition

Whenever people do posts on their dream home, I am always stumped because there is no way I could fit all my fave rooms in one style house. I have many different dream homes, from a big formal house to a small cottage, to a Hamptons estate to a mid century modern glass retreat to even a slick uptown skyrise apartment. Today's Dream Home series is my dream cottage. I tend to like smaller rooms over massive ones - with lots of dark places to curl up with a book or to watch a movie!

Welcome to my enchanted cottage
The entry is small but bright

Leading into a sunny/cozy front living room
Powder room adds a touch of glam

I am learning to cook and we love to play games here
The dark library is perfect for rainy day movie watching
Upstairs is my huge master bedroom
And marble bath

With attached dressing room/closet
And down the hall a perfect neutral nursery
I like to lie in the shade
While tons of friends and family play in the pool...

My dream bathroom

I have this SAME problem. Part of me wants spanish style hacienda with lot of global textiles, very boho trad, the other part wants more what I have, simple california modern with lots of danish modern and textural linens.

But I LOVE your fantasy cottage, yes I do.

I want to live in every single room. It's pretty damn perfect!

Ha, totally! I'm like that too. My style can be all over the place. But so many of these rooms are my faves too! And of course, you are showing me new faves!
