Am heading back to the states today…leaving splendid Paris behind. So I thought I would add in a post of an all American home today!
This “cottage” is 4 bedrooms in 5000 square feet of house…I only wish my tiny little cottage in the Hollywood Hills was a fraction of the size. Just goes to show you there are cottages and then there are “cottages”. I would like the kind of cottage that goes in quotation marks…btw…
Anyhoooo…the house is a gray shingle style home with a gray and white theme. Lynn used lots of stripes, bleached and pale furniture and white lacquer beadboard throughout to create a serene elegantly casual family home.
Love the use of grey here and the bold stripes. These spaces work for me. Preppy, beachy, traditional with a tiny tiny hint of modern thrown in. Nicely designed indeed!
What do you think of this little glimpse of this seaside “cottage”? Any room you must have? I rather like the scene with the painting and table…reminds me that good design can be rooted in calm simplicity. What do you think of the gray and stripes? Do tell!
