Small Low Country Cottage With Farmhouse Feel

Designer Lisa Furey's challenge was to design and build a 690-square-foot low country cottage that would include a kitchen, laundry area, bedroom and workspace as well as outdoor space. Board and batten siding, a standing seam metal roof and board and batten composite shutters — all weather-proof choices — give the exterior a farmhouse feel.

Small Farmhouse-Style Cottage Features Simple Landscaping

This 690-square-foot low country cottage exudes farmhouse charm with its board and batten siding and standing seam metal roof. Simple landscaping complements the home's unassuming style.

Farmhouse-Style Home Boasts Welcoming Entry

A delightful brick walkway in a herringbone pattern leads to this farmhouse-style front porch. Gas lanterns and potted ferns flank the front door to create a warm, welcoming entry.

Small Living Room Feels Bright, Open

Large windows fill the small living room and kitchen with natural light, creating a bright, airy atmosphere that works to make the space feel larger. The custom sectional is designed to sleep an extra guest.

Barn Door Conceals Laundry Area in Open Concept Living Room

A barn door, which works beautifully with the modern farmhouse aesthetic seen throughout the home, conceals a stacking washer and dryer to maximize square footage. A sleek glass coffee table keeps from visually crowding the room, creating a sense of more space.

Small White Kitchen Boasts Modern Farmhouse Look

A vaulted ceiling, clean white walls and a front door with large glass panels help make this small kitchen and living area feel bright and open. White Shaker cabinetry conceals a small refrigerator, full-sized dishwasher, microwave and toaster oven. A farmhouse sink and barn-style pendant lights speak to a modern farmhouse aesthetic — as does the open shelving with beadboard backing. Saddle-style barstools provide additional seating.

Breezy White Bedroom With Woven Wood Shades

White walls, large windows and a vaulted ceiling make this bedroom feel light, breezy and open. Reclaimed heart pine floors offer warmth and contrast. Woven wood shades allow light to filter through while still providing shade and relief from heat.

Country-Style Bedroom Features Paisley Bedding

Paisley printed bedding and a muted green chest continue the country feel into the bedroom. Swing-arm wall lamps allow for full use of the driftwood nightstand surfaces.

Farmhouse-Style Bathroom With Lovely Beadboard Wainscoting

Dark porcelain tile floors provide contrast against the crisp white beadboard in this small bathroom. A large vanity with a farm-style vessel sink and faucet offers ample storage space.
