Colonial cottage by the sea ~ dream come true! Love the fencing and the stone walkway too. No fireplace required ~ unless it was electric with the faux brick on top for decoration. Seems a bit wasteful though.
Can you say....AWESOME! Contemporary Cottage Bright white paint, blue-gray shutters, and a breezy wraparound front porch give this coastal cottage a vintage beach style. But look a bit closer and you'll notice the home's tangy twist on tradition; the punch delivers the moment you knock on the tangerine door and experience its interior's fresh-squeezed color scheme.

A Cottage at Its Peak- A Cottage at Its Peak- My dream home would be this style of cottage. I love that there would be plenty of light with all the windows. I would want the color to be a soft, light grey or maybe a light aqua with a welcoming red on the front door.
