Open shelving is a trademark cottage look. By distressing and painting the wood on this built-in unit, Ackerman Interiors has created a perfect spot to display a vintage china collection.

Paint It White

Off-white cabinets, beadboard, handmade accessories and wooden floors make this kitchen quintessentially cottage.

Two of a Kind

Beadboard and painted cabinets are popular choices in cottage kitchens. Why not combine the two for a unique look?

Not Your Grandma's Kitchen

Lacquered antler chandeliers and bamboo lattice-back dining chairs are a whimsical touch in this room by Don Raney. Painted crown molding against a hunter-green wall assures that the room isn't too funky.

Just Beachy

Cottage style lends itself to more than a rural landscape. This kitchen and dining area uses white cabinets, light green paint and nautical touches to create a seaside cottage look.

Everyday Elegance

Judith Balis uses floral valences, white cabinets, beadboard, lace and a pop of red to create cozy cottage style. Functional touches like an overhead unit for hanging pots and pans are welcome in the cottage kitchen.

Ravishing Retro

The early 1900s flush-mount fixtures in this galley kitchen give it the charming look of yesteryear. Calming sea-foam green paint brightens the retro-inspired cabinetry.

Modern Cottage

Exposed cabinets, vintage light fixtures, wicker baskets and bright pops of Granny Smith green against a neutral background put a modern take on cottage style.
