Modern Meets Traditional in This Storybook Cottage

This beautiful Storybook Cottage style home blends traditional and contemporary architectural styles

A traditional exterior disguises the Storybook Cottage’s sleek and modern interior with fairy tale touches such as red window casings, copper roofing, and a perfectly landscaped yard. Upon entering, the character of the house becomes more contemporary with arched doors and windows and a stunning kitchen.

The copper plated roof of the Storybook Cottage curves at the ridges to give the exterior a soft and comforting feel. The multi-paned windows lend an element of folklore fantasy to the exterior while opening up the interior with an abundance of natural light. The dark metal hinges on the light wooden doors create a welcoming contrast that pulls guests inside with its natural beauty.

Once inside, you’ll be struck by the modernity of the design. The kitchen features stunning stone counter tops, white cabinets, and long nickel hardware. The glass-fronted liquor cabinets offset the gleaming hardwood floor to balance the kitchen out perfectly.

Windows let in plenty of natural light to the spacious living room. The wide, white baseboards open the room up and give it a clean, bright look. The use of neutral colors throughout the home’s interior give it a decidedly modern feel, while splashes of color in each room add variety and interest. The master bedroom opens up to an outdoor patio that looks out over a verdant lawn.
