Vintage Guest Cottage








Love at first sight. That's what it was when I spotted this comfy guest cottage on Chic Coles yesterday. Photographed by Janis Nicolay and featured in Style at Home magazine, this cottage was designed by Colleen Sawatsky, owner of Vintage Home in Abbotsford, British Columbia. The colors, oh the colors...all so pretty! The breezy painted floors and furniture, delightful fabrics, crisp white walls, there is not one thing that I don't absolutely LOVE about this home! I hope you all enjoyed it too, and have the best Labor Day weekend ever!

Beautiful! the second picture is my favorite because I just love the crisp white sofa with the floral throw pillows and that giant Magnolia print behind it!

So fresh and lovely. Any way to find out what color the end table and lamp are painted in the second picture?

Love this blog and the endless inspiration you provide weekly! Thank you!!!

If this is the guest cottage, so I want to be the guest forever!!
Some people say that white is boring, I don't agree at all. It looks great with perfect colors. And, that chandelier is to die for.

I love all of these photos, especially that sweet bedroom at the end of the post. It brings back childhood memories of my grandmother's bedroom.
Blessings,

That first pic made me gasp out loud! That's a table for sitting around and having coffee with family and friends, chatting away the morning. Love those curtains! I'm going to be on the lookout for vintage tablecloths now. And for that magnolia print fabric. The bedroom is so adorable, you don't even notice the size.

Thank you for always bringing us such wonderful space, Erin!

Thanks for popping by the Cottage Erin :) I figured you would like my bedroom :D Aqua all the way! :)

I love this guesthouse you're showing off!!! Brilliant!

The turquoise in these photos has a very cooling effect. Normally blue does cool and calm, do you have any photos you could share that show it in a more cozy, winter nest way, for the months we have ahead? I'd love to see.

tractorgirl said...

love those painted floorboards, and the sweetness of the tiny bedroom. It so reminds me of my childhood days at my cousins farm, western NSW, Australia

love this cottage! and it's so close to where i live. is it a B n B? I want to see it up close. Just goes to show you how crisp, clean white paint can go so far. Now it's time to convince my husband of that cuz our cedar paneled walls are too dark and gross.
