Cottage houses are for those people who are seeking simplicity and the tranquility of nature. Cottages originated in Medieval Europe as housing for farm workers families, and they were built of stone or inexpensive local materials such as thatch. Nowadays small cottage house plans are usually used by retirees whose families have moved away, or as summer vacation or weekend getaway homes by people who live in cities. Today I’m going to present a cottage house owned by the Skoglund family and where the color choice is obvious. White walls, white pieces of furniture, white cushions .. yes, up to and including Marianne’s canoe is white. The only thing that is not white is the facade of the cottage house that is red. The interior walls are consistently painted in a broken white nuance and the furnishings feels well thought-outly and carefully selected. Finally what do you think …is there to much white in this cottage house or not ? Found on : Hus & hem
