This 1920s Cottage, originally featured in Cottage Living and now appearing on Myhomeideas.com, had me at the white-picket fence.
Also, the homeowner sort of looks like me, so if I squint my eyes just a tad, I can see myself with that adorable cottage and white picket fence and brick walkway! It looks good on me!
This kitchen is just incredible. All of the period details are intact like the banquette and abundance of leaded glass windows and natural light, as well as the original tile.
And here is the before picture of the same kitchen, which shows what a tremendous change can be had with a bunch of white paint, some glass cabinet inserts, new hardware and a lot of elbow grease.
I speak from personal experience. If you missed the original post, here is the kitchen make0ver
from our first home, which was 99% DIY.
The warm neutral colors continue throughout the cottage.
