Hello, my friends! How are you today? Many plans for the weekend? I certainly hope this brick cottage brings you some joy!
Recently built by Gerrard Builders Hillside House and with interiors by Shannon Bowman Interiors and Carolina Design Associates, this cottage is truly a dream home! In my opinion, it is the perfect size and features interiors and an exterior that will overcome any trends. You can look at this home in ten years and you will think it was just designed.
Here, the interior designer Shannon Bowman, whom I am very thankful for for sharing all the sources below, explains more about the style of this home: “Cozy and Cottage Chic was our goal, however keeping a light and airy pallet almost gives it a coastal vibe. We wanted to keep the charm of the original architecture and blend it with a newer farmhouse/cottage design.”
Find a comfy chair and pin your favorite pictures of this cottage with painted exterior. I hope you have a great time!
This home’s curb appeal makes a great first impression and the architectural details are impeccable.

“The kitchen cabinets were built by Hardwood Creations in Charlotte, NC. They are paint grade flush inset frames with a recessed panel cabinet doors. The door style includes an interior bead for interest and detail. The smaller top drawers have an outer bead on a slab drawer front to keep the style consistent. We added a decorative and profiled light rail at the base of the upper cabinets to add one more layer of dimension and help hide the under-cabinet lights. The cabinet hood matches the profile of the cabinet doors in one large recessed panel and includes beaded/cove moldings below to create a low-profile mantel design. The cove corbels that attach the hood to the wall are 3” wide and line up with the overall frame of the hood above. The cabinet base includes a furniture style “proud” base with a decorative cove valance cut out.” – Shannon Bowman.

“The ceiling design creates two large diamonds set into a soffit with perpendicular beams meeting in each corner. We lined the entire ceiling in 6” ship-lap with a nickel gap. The craftsmanship was very important here, we wanted to line up the shiplap with the ceiling and the soffit so it created a seamless look. The beams are 4” high x 6” wide and include a small bead in the interior edges to connect the beam to the shiplap ceiling and create one more detail.”
