Rooms To Love: Delightful Cottage Kitchen

This darling cottage kitchen is the perfect size for a weekend getaway. It offers the essentials without any unneeded extras cluttering the small space. The backdrop of all white allows the pastel color palette to pop and draws your eye immediately to the arrangement of polka dots, florals, fabric collages, and painted furniture. The use of lateral and longitudinal boards on the walls, floors, and ceilings emphasize the structure to visually create a larger space. The drop leaf table is a perfect solution for a tight kitchen and saves on space until in use.

Living Lodge

Just the mere word ‘lodge’ conjures images of a crackling fire…the aroma of a stew cooking in the kitchen…a rustic retreat designed for comfort and warmth. Your lodge could be a cozy log cabin on the prairie or a grandiose spread on a mountaintop out West.

Rooms To Love: Farmhouse Dining Room

A traditional style farmhouse dining room that is set above the rest with crisp, clean, white elements. The overstuffed white host chairs bring in a casual feel to the more formal dining room chairs and table. The rich mahogany finish creates a stark contrast to the crisp white elements of the plush chairs, wainscoting, and framed ceiling. The large French doors allow the light to pour in creating an indoor/outdoor dining setting. The botanical prints and greenery accents also help to bring the outdoors in.
