This renovated country cottage is yet another beautiful work done by Crisp Architects. The historic country cottage, located in the Hudson Valley, was totally renovated and transformed to its early-1800s splendor. The owners reached Crisp Architects because they needed more space for their growing family. What was supposed to be only a small extension became a major transformation into their dream country cottage.



The cottage used to be a farmer’s house.


This is how the cottage looked before the renovation. A diamond in the rough.


This is the results of the renovation. The cottage was published on Renovation Style magazine.


The perfect place to enjoy a summer day. I really like the country-style of this porch.

Living Room

The living room has beautiful beams and an English country feel.

Dining Room

The dining room was kept very simple. Notice the (very) wide plank floors.


The yellow cabinets and the farmhouse sink contributes to the welcoming feel of this kitchen.

Screened Porch

This is where the family have their meals.

Master Bedroom

Sunshine! That’s what I feel when I see this master bedroom. I love the yellows and blues, also, we can’t miss the windows and its shutters.


You really don’t have to “break the bank” to have a beautiful bathroom. Just choose the right materials, but keep simplicity in mind. Notice the two windows and the medicine cabinet in the middle.

Isn’t it a very special country cottage? I love the feel of this place. It’s inviting and perfect to spend the weekends or a life-time.

How are you guys doing today? It’s finally getting warm here and the snow is melting. I have so many plans for this Spring, first, my son will turn 7 next month. Also, I want to continue doing some work around my house and work on my client’s home. I’m working on a dream-project where my client and I have such a great connection and I’m enjoying helping her designed her gorgeous home. Yes, spring will be busy and fun!

What are your plans for spring? What about starting to book a cottage for the summer? Wouldn’t that be great?

Update: My daughter and I got a bad virus that’s going on around town. We’re resting and trying to stay away from baby Matthew because we don’t want to pass this to him or anyone else. I’ll be back with new posts as soon I can, ok? But don’t worry… all we need is some rest and water! 🙂 Big hugs to all of you.

    Boa tarde Luciane!
    primeiro desejo melhoras pra vcs duas!
    Imagino como deve ser bom ver a neve derreter e planejar uma linda primavera, desejo que ela seja maravilhosa pra vc e sua família.
    Essa casa é linda, aconchegante, tem jeito de casa!!!rs
    Aqui no Brasil queremos tudo novo, é incrível ver como as casas são restauradas em outros países.
    Olhando o chão de madeira larga já fico com vontade de tirar o chinelo e pisar nele, que coisa mais gostosa.


  10. lovely exterior! I am not entirely sold on the interior though. Some parts speak to me, others just seem a tad outdated?

    Anyhow… where do you FIND all these lovelies?! Sigh… I love this cottage of the week thing!

    What a great country cottage. I love the room where the family takes their meals…the wall of French paned windows is spectacular. How pretty.
    Hope you all feel better soon.

  12. I love the newly built sun-porch… so rustic and beautiful! I would be spending all my time out there. Altho… the rest of the house is just lovely as well!
    Hope you & yours feel better soon
