Front Design and Yard

A house that would be perfect in a rural setting or even in the city, this little cottage has concrete walls, glass windows and sliding glass doors, and porch posts made from logs or trunks of real trees.

Soft pastel gray tones are used to paint the outside walls; though you can pick earth tones for better effect. Designed to maximize the view, the porch features a couple of chairs and some built-in benches made of wood.

Gorgeous Open Plan Interior

Because there are no walls that divide the interior of this open-plan cottage, space appears much bigger than expected. The living room shares a spot with the functional kitchen and dining area that also doubles as an office space.

The sleeping area is set in a platform two steps up from the living room. It features a beautiful post that’s also a log, reminiscent of the posts at the porch area.

Wood shelves and accents also make this place look more elegant.
