Summer is completely gone by now and even the leaves on the trees are starting to fall, but we can all relive the warm summer days when we see this shingle style cottage.
Beautifully designed by Birdseye Design, this coastal cottage has that appealing classic shingle style that many of us love.
This shingle style cottage features an inspirational mix of metal roof, stone shingles and dormer windows. And, when it comes to the interiors, the decor is undoubtedly coastal with a minimalist approach, which helps to maximize the water views.
Looking at this cottage we can certainly say that every detail of this place was truly well-designed with sustainable architecture in mind, while keeping that charm that only shingle-style cottages can deliver.
I simply can’t resist a beautiful front porch. This one is done to perfection.
Singles are “White cedar shingles” and they’re treated with “Cabot bleaching oil”.
Welcoming and homey… this is what coastal cottages are all about.
The entryway decor was kept minimal. Therefore, your attention is turned to the architectural details found in this space.
Modern Coastal Cottage
The main floor is open and bright, making the space feel even larger than it really is.
The kitchen cabinets are simple and have very straight lines. Interest and color are added with dinnerware and other decorative elements.
Island stools are the “Eastward stools” by Thomas Moser.
Similar Kitchen Cabinet Paint Color: “Simply White OC-117 by Benjamin Moore”.
This is a great kitchen with classic black & white elements.
Countertop is “honed black absolute granite”.
Lovely hues are found in this living room. The furniture was kept low to not interfere with the view.
It’s impossible to not fall in love with this cottage… you look at that view and you feel at peace.
A very bright and comfortable seating area is found on the second floor.
This is a cute and cozy spot to take a nap at the end of the day… after all, you’re in a cottage! 😉
This bathroom is classic and it has a modern approach. The best feature? That view!
Shingled Coastal Cottage
Isn’t this patio great? I can picture myself spending many hours here, enjoying the sun, and watching the kids run in the backyard.
This cottage feels very unique… full of interesting details.
Can you imagine waking up and walking to your balcony to enjoy this view? This would be a really good way to start your day!
This backyard has the perfect size and it’s low-maintenance.
Windows are by Marvin Windows.
Yes! This gorgeous shingle style cottage comes even with an outdoor shower! Whoa!
Home Sweet Home
What a dreamy place! Notice the beautiful roof lines and dormer.
A perfect place to relax and enjoy the view… It can get even better with a special person by your side!

Hi, my friends! What an incredible place, right? I feel in love with this cottage… the exterior made my jaw drop! 🙂
I am feeling MUCH better today! I took a long bath (like some of you suggested yesterday), watched a show w/ my hubby (“Breaking Bad”… we’re watching the 3rd season), relaxed and went to bed earlier than usual. All of that helped me feel happier, calmer and less whiny. LOL Oh, I can’t be so bad if I am overtired! LOL
So, since I am feeling better, I am loving my bedroom even more today. I could put the last details together and it’s looking great… my husband at first thought it felt a little too feminine, which isn’t true… it just has a more elegant, chic feel to it.
Today he woke up and said that he actually likes it now. He said it’s like waking up in a nice hotel room. Well… I get that as a compliment! 😉
Have a great and happy day, everyone!

I love this cottage so much! It looks like the perfect holiday rental. So glad you are feeling better – we all get a bit cranky when we’re tired!
Hi so charming but the view is SENSATIONAL! I could easily get used to waking up to that view every morning:) Just gorgeous!
Oh it’s just the most beautiful home. I, too, can imagine the kids running around in the garden and me sitting on the patio having a cuppa. I love the bleaching of the shingles and all the timber types compliment each other inside and out. Just perfect.
I LOVE this home – it’s just perfect in every way, isn’t it?
I’m glad you’re feeling better, Lucianne – big hugs to you.
Que casa maravilhosa! E esse cenário, que coisa mais linda. Queria acordar todos os dias em um local assim… obrigada por compartilhar imagens tão lindas.
abraço, Denise – dojeitode.blogspot.com
This is fabulous. Love all the wonderful details, as well as the traditional design that still encompasses the gorgeous views. I love the open library at the top of the stairs and the 2nd floor porch – what we’d call a sleeping porch here in the south. This house is just perfect.
Hello, We do not see any of the rooms nor the square footage of the house…would it be possible to have the layouts of each full floor ?
We are building a house in NC. Would you be willing to tell me who the architect is? Love the look of the home!
Thanks so much
Please try to contact the designer (please see under “sources”) for further information on this.
Thank you and good luck with your new home! 🙂
I love the windows!! Do you know how tall the ceilings are? Thanks!! I love your blog!!
