At first glance, this house has the warm brick and exuberant gardens of a typical country-side cottage. Inside, however, a more contemporary design aesthetic begins to dominate. Clean lines and a lack of “fussiness” set this build apart from the cottage decor you might expect. Warm woods and earthy colors create a relaxing and cozy interior. In the bedroom, a creative use of a pair of columns and a bookcase creates a built-in shelving look. Likewise in the kitchen, use of the 1/2 wall tool combined with another column gives the area a custom and expensive looking finish.
