Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas
Posted in: Cottage


What would you do if you were looking for a cottage and all you could find was a good location but a house that was far from being the cottage of your dreams? Would you go through a major renovation just so you could be in the place you want to spend your summers, or would you keep looking? This couple along with their four children took the challenge, but only because they knew they could have the knowledge and talent of architect Robert Dean and interior designer Anne Miller.

The result is absolutely stunning and I hope you feel inspired by their work in the following pictures.


Curb Appeal

You feel welcome the moment you see this cottage.


Everything was redone to perfection in this cottage.

Living Room

The living room has a posh feeling, but the rest of the cottage feels more relaxed.


I love the soft and comfortable pallet of the living room.

Little Corner

The shelves are painted a beautiful blue. This color is used in many of the rooms on the main floor. Don’t you also love the rug?

Family Room

This family room resembles the beautiful outdoors.


I love this kitchen! Note the size. Even if you don’t have space to have a kitchen with a huge island, this shows you can still have a pretty and very usable kitchen using a small square footage. And yes, of course, we cannot forget that g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s range!

Eating Area

Tailored looking.


Oh, this is so beautiful and summery.


This has a true cottage-y feel to it. Outdoors! That’s the main reason to go to a cottage.

Master Bedroom

The master bedroom feels feminine but not too precious.

Purple Princesses

This is probably my daughter’s dream bedroom. She already has a purple bedroom, but I think she’d love this one also.

The Boys’ Room

This is the ultimate shared bedroom!

The Lake

And this is the reason they had to have this place!

What are your thoughts on this cottage? I usually prefer more relaxed cottages with more items you know were found at a flea market. Where you don’t really have to worry abut anything, a simpler place to spend fun days during the summer. Having said that, I cannot say I don’t also love this more tailored look. It’s really pretty and really inviting. Anyone can feel really welcomed in this place. But what about you? Do you prefer more relaxed cottages or more elegant? I’d love to know!

Wishing you a very blessed day!

    What a great get a way! You cant think “cottage” without thinking “blue and white” and I just love how they used it.

  15. kathysue said,

    PERFECTION!! I did a post called Beach Elegance and this amazing Lake cottage would be perfect for the elegant beach look I love so much. I had to pin a few of these wonderful images to my Pinterest boards!! Great post Lucianne, thankyou!!

  16. Meghan @ Wishful Thinking said,

    Sooooo beautiful! I love the front exterior the most – that gorgeous timber porch and welcoming blue front door are pure perfection!

  17. Barbara@HausDesign said,

    I found this house so beautiful, inviting and unpretentious! My favorites were the blue living room, the shared room with four twin beds and that gorgeous table setting…very nice!

  18. Monique said,

    You always find the most amazing houses. Though it’s not my design style, if someone handed me the keys to this house I’d take it. I always try to find ideas that I’d love to try in my home. I like the wire coffee table and the fuzzy white ottoman on w/tall legs. Thanks for another great post.

  19. Claire Marie said,

    I can’t even make one picky comment – its perfect exactly as it is. I would love to have a vacation home with that shared room, too, how neat would it be for kids?

  20. Victoria Athens said,

    Hi, Luciane,
    I love the look of this cottage. Blue and white is so right for many environments, but none more than a summer cottage. I have alway coveted the gold wood place mats featured in the table setting. Unfortunately, they are very pricey. Hope you are doing well.

    This house is absolutely amazing! It’s warm, livable and comfortable looking. The porch is to die for! This is my idea of a dream house.
