SMALL BOATHOUSE WITH BIG COTTAGE CHARM

charcoal gray cottage house with white trim flagstone path garden


Am partial to cottages.  I live in one.  Guess I should be partial.  I am also partial to waterfront homes.  I wish I had one.

I am also partial to champagne, sparkling headbands and jewelry, large mansions, ice cream sandwiches, quinoa, finding ways to be skinny without much effort, Rag & Bone jean leggings,  my sister, the silver pig that sits in my office, the James Perse jacket/sweatshirt/blazer cute thing I wear all of the time, there's more...uhmmm...but I'm sure you would be bored beyond belief...so many things I am partial to but I digress (as usual).

Back to being partial to cottages and waterfront homes.  Imagine my delight when I saw this cute little summer home right on the water somewhere in Canada.  Charming. A cottage from the front...and a waterfront boathouse from the back.

Not sure I would want to live here day in and day out but I would love to spend a weekend in this charmer.  Benignly rustic and definitely cute.

What do you think...would like to live in this little cottage?  Anything you like?  Anything you would change?

Happy Wednesday!

  2. Yup sign me up! Trying to convince my husband we should move there and live on the lake, this is a good start.

  4. When I saw your comment "right on the water somewhere in Canada", I thought to myself, "Well, that narrows it down a bit!" I can just imagine a Canadian blogger posting a picture of a home "right on the water somewhere in the United States". I was pleased to see a little more detail on the last picture.

    Anyway, it's gorgeous!

  5. I like the repeats of black and white and the brightness of it all. One might expect rustic and weathered. I'm available for a weekend visit.
