A Cottage in the Woods


Its rather gloomy and rainy here in Santa Barbara, and its times like these I wish I had a little cottage retreat in a wooded countryside. I’d cook up some awesome butternut squash soup in this kitchen. How amazing are the painted wood floors in contrast to the industrial range and the warm wood tones of the sideboard?


I’d invite my friend who’s an incredible pianist to provide the music for the festivities. After the party, I’d need to take a very long hot bath in this gorgeous bathroom. I love the two types of tile, on the floor and the wall, mixed with more of that gorgeous painted wood paneling. The tone on tone white is so serene.


Oh yes, and we’d definitely need to use the outdoor fire place and drink lots of hot chocolate around it. Happy Wednesday!
