A Local Cottage









This home is another local real estate find. For the actual locals it's in Homewood. I feel like this home must belong to someone who loves design, maybe a young designer or a wanna be like me? All the lighting quickly grabs my attentions. I wouldn't mind a close up of the dining room chandelier and sconces. For me lighting is so important. It can definitely make or break a room. I also love how clutter free each space is which in turn helps all the stunning antique pieces stand out, of course this could have been done for staging purposes but I doubt it with all the attention to detail this home possesses.

Want more info on this home? I will be more than happy to send out the listing agents info.

The lighting fixtures and the bedroom are my favorites. I agree this isn't just staging - there is good taste there!

I saw this house on the MLS the other day and loved it. It's so cute and the interiors are fabulous!

I think its kinda fun to peak around MLS and see the inside of homes. This is a fun one! thanks.

I like the self or maybe not self portrait in the bedroom. A punch of personality.

Lots of good details here and you're right...the lighting is certainly a standout! I also really love the tiny mirror above the scalloped upholstered bed. Terrific...

From one "wanna be designer" to another...the home is lovely and the person did a great job decorating it.

love this home. Love the pendants in the kitchen.

Melissa said...

Lovely - so fun to see small homes designed so well. Makes me want a little cottage.

Katy said...

Love it. Especially that zebra rug. Wonder if they upgraded it enough to make the closets bigger? That's my main problem with those houses in Homewood - teeny tiny closets.

Char said...

love the layout and the outside. the use of light and the zebra rug but i'm over upholstered big headboards...mmm but i could picture what all i would want to do to it. :)

Stephanie said...

Oh lighting. How I long for a house. Windows. Light fixtures. Sigh.

Jennifer said...

very pretty and not overly-designed, you know? definitely could be a young designer! office looks like it to me (though I'm sure it's been cleared of a lot of things for the photos)

Stephanie Sabbe said...

Anna said...

That's just a little bit of perfection there! Lovely.

Heather said...

You find the most amazing places! I'm in love with that study room. The desk is perfect and the chair beautiful. And a Mac! Perfect.

Chelsea Gwynne said...

I would live there tomorrow. It seems like the type of place where you'd drink a lot of tea, have cozy knitted blankets, and manage to finish a reading list!

Dayka (Life +Style) said...

it should sell quickly--it's beautiful!

Tanya (a Taste of T) said...

does it come with all the furniture? I love some of those pieces like the headboard and that desk
