The Cottage is located behind Designer Leslie Allen’s parents home and accommodates all of their children and grandchildren at various times of the year, from a weekend to a week or more…yep I could live there. (Wonder what the Main house looks like!!)
I love this floor in the screened porch, made from Blue stone. Our own home is built on it, and I can tell you, it will withstand ANYTHING!
The short order Kitchen is so lovely with its Tongue-and-Groove boards and open shelving. Love that light fixture.
Another angle to the Kitchen shows the Dutch door, which is actually the main door. All of the other doors are the windows…French ones!
The Bathroom is delightful. I love the glass green tiles on the floor, which put a little gentle colour into the bathroom…which also keeps the seaside beach house theme going. Leslie also used little nooks between the stud walls to house storage cupboards which house all the Medicines and toiletries…how clever.
This is the home that has got me set on using these roman wicker shades for the backs of our French doors. I also love how she has added deep trim to the tongue and groove boards. They can now do duty as a casual gallery space, or act as a small shelf.
This is just beautiful, restful and un-fussy. Simple window treatments and loads of white linen. That green on the walls is so fresh and relaxing. Double door wardrobes are in all the rooms as there is no room for drawers.
These little wall mounted bedside table/shelves free up the floor space and keep the room uncluttered. The wall mounted lights are handy as there is no room for a lamp on the little table.
