I stumbled upon this gorgeous Californian cottage, over at House Beautiful....
Isn't it glorious?!!!
I am particularly in love with the kitchen, with it's vintage stove and it's breakfast bar blackboard!
Look at the fridge! Custom made to look like an old icebox!
A beautiful trestle table with rustic captain's chairs, wicker baskets, timber floors bathed in sunlight.... just perfection. Those fabulous lights are made out of old buoys, cut in half.
A vintage pull-down map hides the TV... very clever.
Check out the bunk room!!!....
... and associated bathroom!... with lockers for guests!
I love the striped walls... alternating bands of flat and semigloss paint.
Now there's an idea!
Saved the best for last... the outdoor dining area.
The marble bench-top extends from inside the kitchen to outside.
Could it get any better? Sigh!
You can see more of this gorgeous cottage HERE.
Happy Saturday afternoon!
I'm off to a little bloggy afternoon tea... apparently it's my New York send off....
.. even though I am not leaving until next weekend.
I'll instagram the goodies!
