Welcome to the sixty-seventh post in the series
"Living Large in Small Spaces".
If you think the white washed stone exterior is charming, wait until you see Sweetpea's interior. This cottage has stolen my heart.
Deep well windows, an old stone fireplace with a wood burner, and beamed ceilings speak my language.
How could one keep from picking up a book with a reading corner like this one?
The dining area is on the opposite side of the room from the fireplace.
Wonderful textiles in soft colors fill the cottage.
Cottages of this age, with small windows and low ceilings can be very dark. The white walls, ceilings and furniture, as well as the light floors, make the rooms brighter and more cheerful.
The kitchen is bright and spacious. I like the plate rack and the open shelves. They give the kitchen a collected look. Very nice.
Nice mix of vintage and modern in the bathroom. Great claw foot bathtub with shower.
Back to the living room where we find stairs to take us to the bedrooms.
The master bedroom is so pretty.
This may be a king-size bed, but it's suitable for a princess.
I wanted you to get a closer look at the nightstands. Do you see the sweet birds?
Such a dreamy bedroom.
The second bedroom is a nursery.
Outside is a lovely enclosed garden with a summer house.
I like the idea of a summer house, and this one is enchanting.
