Located in Healdsburg, California, small touristic town in northern Sonoma County, this small cottage with coastal white interiors was artfully designed with a chic aesthetic.
This circa 1915 cottage features a sophisticated style that combines classical vintage details with tasteful modern design. The boutique vintage character of this two bedroom cottage has been preserved and substantial improvements, including a new foundation, were made recently to allow for future expansion of an additional bedroom and bath.
Ideal for a weekend getaway, the intimate interiors of this single level cottage feature high ceilings, brush painted plank floors, soft colors and a comfortable floor plan with open living room, dining area and a charming free-standing gas stove in the small all-white kitchen.
This cottage might be small and it might be very simple compared to the large coastal homes I often feature on the blog, but I promise it won’t lack style and great ideas! Are you ready to see it?

Imagine yourself relaxing with coffee, or a sunset drink on the front porch. Don’t want to just imagine, want to do it? This cottage is for sale for an asking price of $749,000. Nothing ever comes cheap in California, does it?
Welcome to the Cottage
I honestly fell in love with the simplicity of these interiors. Everything feels calm and completely relaxed.
The living room, like the rest of the cottage, features white beadboard walls and ceiling and also white painted plank floors.
To add a touch of color, blue and white, and pale grays play beautifully against the soothing palette.
Notice the reclaimed window shutters, the wicker furniture and decor.
The lighting are the Goodman Cone Pendants in white.
This dining room is just adorable! I am loving the white table and chairs, but I would be tempted to replace them with pale turquoise slipcovered chairs… can you picture that? The cabinet is stunning. I love the idea of painting the back of the cabinet in gray, but that TV could find a better spot.
How would you design this room?
With only two bedrooms, this cottage is perfect for a getaway or for someone looking to downsize. You can clean this entire place in 10 minutes! I would love that! 🙂
Although, this is a small cottage, notice how connected the spaces feel to the each other.
I couldn’t resist and I shared this kitchen on Instagram last night as I was preparing this post. I absolutely love this space! It almost feels like a doll house. 🙂
Small Kitchen Design
Small kitchens can feel claustrophobic. You can eliminate this feeling by removing the upper cabinets on at least one wall of the kitchen and adding floating shelves. This will create a more airy feel to your small kitchen.
Interior Paint Color
The interiors of this cottage were painted with Benjamin Moore White Dove.
This bedroom is small but it shares so much inspiration! I am loving the white and blue decor, the beadboard walls and ceiling and not to mention that bed and rug!
Table lamps are from Pottery Barn.
Don’t be afraid of using a canopy bed in a small bedroom. Keep everything light, including the bedding for a calm and spacious feel.
I haven’t visited Healdsburg, California yet, but it seems to be a gorgeous place! Have you ever been to Healdsburg?
While looking for cottages to share with you, I also found this property for sale in Healdsburg. Although the house is not a cottage (and I couldn’t share it here), I fell in love with the backyard and I had to show it to you. This backyard has its own “Romantic Shed”!
This backyard shed was made with reclaimed wood and it looks so inviting! Do you want to come in?
Isn’t this the most romantic shed you’ve ever seen?
It’s sunny out there and I’m getting the kids and hubby and we’re going to enjoy a yummy brunch at a local restaurant.
I hope you guys have a great day, full of happiness, laughter and good times!
See you guys tomorrow!
