Yes, yes, cottages remain on my mind. I keep coming across some gorgeous cottages online that I hope you don’t mind that I keep sharing them here.
This place by la Shed is bright and airy, and it comes with incredible views.
I could move right on in!
I was in Goderich and Bayfield on Saturday because Ontario beach time has been long overdue for me. It was an absolutely wonderful day out, and it got me dreaming (again) about owning a cottage one day (remember this cottage post from November).
Recently, my cottage dreams seem to lead me to the classic A-frame style. The A-frame (literally shaped like the letter A) style appeals to me for a cottage because it looks cozy, seems to blend in well with country surroundings, and mimics the shape of trees. I don’t know. I just think it looks kind of cool. And with a white interior? I think it would be fun.
So, naturally, my dreams have led me to create this blog post featuring cool A-frame houses (or cottages) that I find so darn beautiful.

I still have cottage life on my brain, and I imagine it’s going to get even stronger as the good weather arrives. So I’ve been floating around Pinterest looking at beach houses, and oh my goodness, there are so many beauties out there in the world!
Isn’t the kitchen below from Amber Interiors just gorgeous? Could you imagine having a beach house with this stunner? Wow!

And this bathroom? Sweet, right? You know I’m not usually drawn to patterns, but I think this floor is so charming, and it would be so lovely in a cottage.

And what would a beach house be without a couple of hanging chairs. They’re a must!
I keep dreaming about owning a cottage. Ideally, it’ll be a full-season cottage so that I can spend cozy winter weekends there doing (just about) nothing. And would I paint my cottage-cabin white? You bet! I’m inspired by these beautiful exterior and interior designs.
