Behold, quite possibly, the most adorable little cottage I’ve ever seen. This sweet little cottage started out as a hunting cabin before being converted into a charming little Victorian-inspired retreat. I love it to pieces! I wish I had my own little place to retreat to in the woods to just rest, and enjoy being alone in the silence of the forest. And being in such a pretty little place such as this could only make my little fantasy all the more happiness-inducing.
Hello, dreamland. Isn’t it ridiculously charming? And it’s white! All white! I’m giddy! (For the new-comers, I have a slight obsession with white. It’s probably a wee bit unhealthy borderline freakish, but I care not! I love white even more than a cat loves catnip!) I’m not usually a huge fan of the shabby chic style; I admire it’s effortless beauty from afar and I love that it embodies such a carefree way of life. It’s elegant and sweet. While it isn’t personally my style or something that I could live with, I still find it endearing. And well, this cute little cabin has me reconsidering my stance. All of the little details are so charming from the numerous chandeliers, to the chipped painted cabinet doors, and the ruffley sheets, my oh my! There are most definitely elements here that I could get on board with.
Like this cozy sleeping loft! How quaint. When can I move in? And the ruffled bedding and canopied top? Oh my, oh my! Be still my beating heart.
Oh, and the best part? This cottage is only accessible via a stone crossing over a stream! How magical is that? As if I weren’t already positively smitten, this mini-home just keeps getting better and better. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say this place was plucked from some sort of girlish fairytale dream land. In fact, it reminds me so much of the doodles I’d make when I was younger. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say the blueprints from this cottage came from a six-year-old girl daydreaming about what her future home would look like. I know my 6-year-old self most definitely would have imagined something similar.
