House Tour: Small Country Cottage

Although it's lovely to look at enormous homes, from time to time, it's good for the soul to see how size is absolutely not an issue when it comes to making your home beautiful; letting you feel inspired, rather than intimidated. 
After this house tour of a tiny extended two bedroom stone cottage, you'll see exactly what I mean....

Now, won't you come in and make yourself at home?!

This house was a wreck when the owners moved in. They've lovingly renovated every nook and cranny.

Oh, the kitchen....G:O:R:G:E:O:U:S!

When it came to choosing paint colours, they say this:

‘We really wanted to create a home that flowed perfectly from one room to the next,’ explains Charlotte. ‘I didn’t want a different feel in each room and wanted the type of colours that you would find in old faded floral fabrics: soft creams and greens and dusky greys.’ They settled on a limited palette of powdery, matt paint from Farrow & Ball, which they have used throughout the entire cottage. ‘We have mixed and matched with various shades to keep the look cohesive,’ says Charlotte, ‘and I also chose similar tones so that none ‘jarred’ against each other; that is also the advantage of using paint from one company, as invariably all of their colours sit well together.’

I love the way that the kitchen and bathroom tie in so well together.

Very yummy and very Modern Country.

See what I mean about the size not being an issue.

I love it! Aside from the one bathroom thing (ha!), I could be perfectly happy there. I think one of my favorite things is the color of the front door. So cute!

I actually prefer smaller homes. This cottage is so cozy. I could move right in! I think the kitchen has to be my favorite.

Very pretty, but I couldn't get over how high the pictures were hung on the walls. Looked really odd to me.
