This ingenious summer cottage is so enchanting and magical, and is graced with all the indicators of summer season – whicker furniture, loads of sunshine, and comfy outside spaces just waiting to be enjoyed. Take a rapid tour of this whimsical trip residence and let all your worries drift away…


This cottage is a summer trip residence dream and boasts every thing you want for a unforgettable summer season trip. If you have ever visited connecticut, you’ll notice this property appears identical to the lavish Candlewood Lake realestate in Conneticut’s cottage country which not to mention, would make a outstanding spot for a hidden hideaway.

The cottage’s interiors have been made by Lawrence Boeder and feature lots of sunny décor like this luminous sun porch. Equipped with wicker furniture from Lyold Flanders, its great for simple entertaining and sipping fresh, cool lemonade.


The living space perfectly morphs with the outdoors setting and décor. Relaxing, casual, and comfortable patterns/textures had been chosen to upholster the sofas, the curtains, and giant rug. The quite, strong wood cocktail table is from Ralph Lauren House and the oil painting is by Pauline Palmer.

The family calls this area the Break O Day space, which serves as a morning gathering place to sip coffee and consume breakfast. The image excellent view of Lake Michigan and warm sunshine pouring in will have you singing for warm weather!


I enjoy the cottage’s relaxed, timeless style which makes you practically float from 1 area to the subsequent. The kitchen is spacious with tall ceilings and ideal for entertaining a huge, bustling family. The kitchen island doubles as a breakfast bar and is equipped with a heavy duty butcher slab countertop which is practically indestructible.


Designer Lawrence Boeder certainly didn’t leave out class and style in this little girl’s area. A quite chandelier and low crown moulding breaks up the exaggerated tall ceilings, making the space far more intimate and cozy. Romantic French furnishings and a soft palette of dusty pinks and rose gold make it an magical bedroom graced with  elegance.


In the master bathroom marble tiles line the floors, wrap about the whole shower and completely align the bath tub.


The guest bedroom has just about every thing you need to have for a comfy and enjoyable remain. The quirky comical painting is a good retro touch to the traditionally styled furniture, fabrics, and patterns.
