Sky blue is not the easiest shade to utilize on the exterior of an edifice, but it works perfectly here. Cottages are usually seen as a small house of sorts, and is frequently described as a modest, quaint type of home with one or two floors. However, no one thinks of a sky blue exterior! Cottages have been used as vacation homes or primary residences for hundreds of years. People who live in cottages usually have a unique association with these charming abodes.
This cottage by Sa Aranha & Vasconcelos, is very typical of modern day cottage designs with a swimming pool and beautiful outdoor deck. The typical small size, unusual architecture (check-out the deck roof and interior ceiling), and rural environment of the conventional cottage structure are all prominent in this lovely edifice. The stunning landscape, relaxed ambiance, and laid back style is an homage to cottages everywhere. It’s just the way a cottage should with its own unique individuality.
This cottage is modernized to the hilt. For instance, the living room is bright and bubbling with color. The high ceiling and stylized trappings, coupled with accent chairs, rug, and other furnishings along with natural light makes the room saccharine like candy. The stark white backdrop enlarges the space creating a magic sphere of intense hues and mild accents. This room not only looks good, it emits good feelings too!
The quirky suspended lights and ornamentation in the kitchen area space are dynamic. This is what decorating is all about; unique pieces that explode with singularity. The wooden stools radiate a chromatic color scheme in the otherwise stark white and black theme. The kitchen area is sparse but functional. What more do you need?
The colorful theme continues in the bedrooms. Striking coral pinks with variations of rose-lavender shades, greyish tones, multi-hued stripes with hints of black thrown in, make these simple bedrooms intriguing, yet modest. The essentials are all there complemented by unconventional artwork, lighting, and numerous accents. The stairway in the twin-bed room comes as a surprise with storage space underneath and functions as an en suite living room area.
The bathroom space seems more like a relaxing spa. It’s pristine and fresh with nicely presented linens and natural material accents. The shower has glass walls to safeguard the delicate wood and protect the finish.
The lambent pathway leading to the outside area encompasses an attractive landscape. It’s inviting inhabitants and visitors to explore the wondrous outdoors. There is an abundance of nooks-and-crannies in this attractive cottage. It’s deliberately designed to be different while maintaining the usual features of cottage décor such as plank floors and exposed beams. It’s a place one can always feel familiar with whether it is only for a visit or all year round living.
