Lately I have been obsessed with cute, tiny cottages in the forest. I would love to have a place to escape daily living and just relax and read a good book. However, I am kind of a snob so the rustic cabin with no bathroom is just not for me.
I want to go to a place that is just as beautiful as the setting it's in. Or better yet, I want to OWN a place like this so I can just go anytime I feel like it!
Here are some places that I have been dreaming of:
I love this space that is built with re-purposed materials
Aww, those shingles! Adorable
Or maybe a fairytale cottage. Love that bright yellow door.
It must have a picket fence around it.
Or maybe something really modern. Just enough space for two!
This is a really cool take on a log cabin. And the setting is beautiful!
Or maybe a tree house feel? This just looks so mysterious. I would love to spend the weekend camped out in this place.
Of course, stone cottages are also drool worthy!
I love the european feel of a stone salt box cottage.
Now this is just too cute for words. It looks like a tiny playhouse for grown-ups!
Ok, so they're are a lot of options for the outside of my tiny cottage. Now let's take a look at some interiors:
It is probably going to be tiny so we will need to do some creative space planning like this little cottage. I love the ladder with the sleeping loft.
Another great example of maximizing space.
But, I do want it to have the country cottage feel. I love this bunk room and the blue quilts.
I love all the rustic beams in this little cottage, not to mention the adorable mint green kitchen cabinets.
Now who could forget the cutest little cottage of all:
Iris' stone cottage from the movie "The Holiday"
When I saw this movie, all I could pay attention to was this adorable cottage.
I LOVE the tiny bathroom with the stone wall. However, not too practical for us tall folks.
The cottage must have a reading nook like this for all the books I am going to be reading since there won't be any TV.
The fireplace in the kitchen makes the space sooooo cozy!
Maybe someday I will have a special little place like this of my own, but for now, I will just keep dreaming.
