Dream Cottage...

Hello! I am sure I will post about this a lot over time so bear with me! Both myself and my husband yearn and long for a cottage in the countryside (maybe me a little more than he as I am a country girl at heart!). I constantly check property pages and websites to see what's out there and right now there are quite a few lovely places which have come WAY down in price ...unfortunately, the value of all houses has fallen so the equity we had built up has been reduced somewhat too, therefore, our dream cottage is still just that (for the moment...must remain positive!!).

Anyway, I mentioned the photographer Christina Wilson in this post some time ago and have now found another beautiful property on her website - a fisherman's cottage in Whitstable - which she has fixed up beautifully...it's for rent and I certainly wouldn't mind spending a week there off season...maybe October some time! Some of her own shots of her little cottage showing her wonderful sense of style below ...totally the kind of simple design aesthetic I would aspire to in my cottage :)

Smitten from the first shot...



Beautiful little kitchen...



Loving the larder cupboard (think it's from Habitat) and adore the small Smeg fridge...



View through to living area...



Very pretty pot belly stove (I prefer an open fire but love these stoves too!)..



Gorgeous, light, white, tongue and groove clad bedroom...sigh...



Another bright and pretty bedroom...



I don't have enough superlatives...the bathroom...



The little back yard...enough space for a small deck, table, chairs and a little seaside garden....



Local beach huts....



Seaside nearby...




Isn't it delightful? I can't wait to have my own...hope you liked it too! Christina is a great photographer I think :)

Martina I think that is waaay to good to be true : ) what a perfect place. It's gorgeous and warm and cosy looking. It would be so much fun even just to stay there!

What a wonderful space. Not over the top, yet looks incredibly comfortable.

She is indeed a wonderful photographer. I can't wait to pay her a visit. I adore that kitchen. ; )

Oh yep! I could live there quite happily! I love the kitchen area and the well, just everything and the sea nearby also - swoon!
