Cottage. Shingle Cottage Ideas. Inspiring Shingle cottage. #Cottage #CottageIdeas #ShingleCottage


What kind of cottage do you prefer? Beach or country? Some people (add me to the list) could never be too far away from the ocean and others, would rather be tucked away in the country, surrounded by trees and with plenty of privacy. If you like both options, this might be just the perfect cottage for you to dream about today. Located on Nantucket island, this shingle cottage is in the country, but not too far away from the waves.

Not only does the location make this country cottage attractive, the interiors are also very impressive. Embracing a casual approach, the interior designer Sophie Metz, from “Sophie Metz Design“, designed this place with comfort and serenity in mind. Beautiful crisp whites seamlessly blend with warm hues and greys, making this cottage a very calming place to visit, or if you’re very lucky, to live in.

 The weather is perfect here and I might get out of the house and go for a walk. I love feeling the ocean’s breeze (we live a block from the bay) and it’s always nice to walk while hearing the waves. Going for walks always make me think about life and feel a little closer to God. 

In fact, even with everything we go through in life, we must try to focus on the positive things that are happening right now with us. 

The way we see our lives can definitely change our definition about happiness, and gratitude surely can bring you closer to it.

Now, go enjoy your day! We’ll talk again tomorrow.

with Love,

    This is a very peaceful house. I love the color of the kitchen tile. It reminds me of a cloudy day, but in a good way. Like walking on the beach. The floors are gorgeous! I have been reading your blogs for awhile now and I have to say thank you. You do such a wonderful job and I truly enjoy them. I look forward to more.

    I am wondering if you could share what the brand is of the marble floor tile in the master bath. It is simply perfect, as is the whole house.

    Our family is interested in building a guest house very similar to the one listed in this post – it’s adorable! Do you happen to have any additional photos…either interior/floor plan or exterior? I’d love to see the window/door placements on the sides and back. Thank you very, very much!

  6. Hello Shannon.

    I don’t have any extra pictures of this cottage, but feel free to contact the designer for more details: Sophie Metz Design.

    Please, let me know if I can help you in any other way.

    Thank you.
