summer cottage home tour

A Summer Cottage Tour by Luciane

Consider yourself lucky if you already can see flowers growing and green lawns. Where I live it still feels like winter, with snow everywhere and we just got yet another snowstorm last week. Maybe that’s why I can’t stop posting cottages that embrace beautiful colors, reminding me of summer and sunshine.

Designed by interior designer Kate Jackson from Rhode Island, this cottage seems to smile at you as soon you enter it. The designer wisely chose to mix coastal decor with a subtle Moroccan touch. Light materials such as wicker and woven can be found in some selected pieces, adding a natural feel to the space.

With a comfortable and a relaxed approach, this cottage immediately gets you in the mood for summer. Get ready to get your flip flops from the closet!

This cottage is ideal for a young family. The swan side table is by Serena & Lily, the green lamps are byJamie Young, but a similar, more affordable, product can be found here.


The cute wicker rocker and the trunk are antiques. Blinds are by Hunter Douglas, tripod floor lamp is byVisual Comforts, and a giant clam (to be used as a bowl) can be found here.

The vintage 1950′s wicker chairs was a find. The fabric on the chair pad fabric is from Peter Dunham Textiles.

       Eating Nook

I simply love the breakfast nook. How cottage-y is that? The light fixture is original to the house. Rejuvenation Hardware offers similar options.

Master Bedroom

The master bedroom is calming and has a summery vibe, thanks to its subtle color pallet, inspired by the Moroccan quilt.

Paint Color: Walls are Benjamin Moore’s “Featherdown” and all trim work and ceilings are Benjamin Moore’s “Chantilly Lace”.

The custom window treatment fabric is by Quadrille Textiles and the artwork can be found here.

Guest Bedroom

This is an ideal small guest bedroom. A daybed is perfect when space is at a premium. This one is even better because comes with a trundle bed.

Lovely color scheme. The embroidered pillow is from Etsy. Throw is by Brahms Mount and the side table is from Ballard Designs.
