Bright blue sofa and a stainglass window in a Victorian cottage
A bright blue sofa and a lovely stain glass widow add pops of color to a Victorian cottage's main living area (above)

This is the home of Erin McLaughlin, editor of Style at Home. An adorable Victorian small cottage in shades of pale grey and a bit of blue here and there. Love it. Very soothing, simple and stylish.

I like light me it allows one to add a dash of color in a small space without closing in the dimensions of the interior.

Excellent little house I think!

What do you think of this small home? I like it because I think this is a chic look that is easy to achieve (hmmm....might have to do a DESIGNER ROOM RECREATE on one of these rooms...hmmm....).

Hope you have a great Monday! Whoa is me...I have to go to a work party tonight...whoa is me...good food, interesting people watching, a little champagne perhaps...whoa is is rough these days... :-)!

Have got to run to get dressed for work!

  1. Blue and grey is such a great color combo! I really love that first photo -- I want that sofa!

  2. That is an elegant combination... Might be just right for my master bedroom....

  3. I love this house and it is so soothing and well done,great images, Happpy Monday and have fun tonight!!

  4. I really like the muted gray and blue - you can really dial it up a punch of color or keep it fresh and simple as they have done.

    Oh and love the stained glass window - so beautiful!

  5. Hi Coco. Love this house. Do you know exactly which Farrow & Ball grey she used? I was looking at their paint chips for my home, and would love to know what was used here. Thanks!

  6. Hi Coco, I am following on FB could not seem to get the mesaage to post I hope you can see it!!

  7. Looks like a very peaceful place to live.....smiles.

  8. I love that kitchen! Coco and fellow bloggers: I need a little colour advice. I'm trying to pick the colour of a new coat stand for my scarves. Please stop by my monday blog post and help me decide! Mwah! Gracias!

  9. I didn't realize a color combination like this would come out this great! And it gives me more freedom to choose my own color for the decors and furnishings.

  10. What a great giveaway! I tried to link to it on FB and it wasn't working. So... here I am! If I can be entered this way.... I'd be so happy! Love the cool tones of this home... I am designing a family room with the same colors this week! :)

  11. Wow, that place looks absolutely amazing! Someone's got a really good style. The kitchen is my favorite, I think (it is too difficult to decide). Oh, and I never really realized how good the combination of blue and grey is. Nice.
