Charming Cottage

Bee Cottage
So charming...isn't it?
This cottage was shown in House Beautiful last year.
It's called Bee Cottage and is the home of HB's contributing editor Frances Schultz.
You can read about it here -
This room is a bit much for me, too much green.
Master Bedroom
I think all of this house is lovely....except that one room with all the wallpaper.

The cottage is so very charming! I love the bedroom with the built-in vanity. What a great idea! I will use the link and read the article. Thanks for posting this, Nita!

Have a great Monday!

The wallpaper IS a bit much but I stopped to look at the shelves with the books beside the bed! That would be SO perfect for my bedroom! Wouldn't it be great to find something special like that for books? I love it! ♥

Pretty! I kind of like the wallpaper myself but not with the sofa and window treatment. Too busy. But I love that she was brave enough to use those bold patterns. My favorite spot is the arch w/built in vanity. Cute, cute!

I completely agree, the wallpaper is just too much with everything else going on in there, well for me anyway. I like my rooms a bit more serene, think because I'm kind of hyper in general. Love the bedroom vanity though, luxury.

I love the color palette, but I think there are too many bold geometrics used in this house. I like the pale aqua room the best. Looks like an office, and I adore that funky lamp on the table!

hi nita,

frances schultz is amazing. she has such incredible taste. i love the whole house, even the wallpapered room. i esp love that little tea table used as a coffee table in the first room. LOVE it.

What a charming cottage. I love the aqua shutters on the outside of her house! The blue tufted chair is beautiful, too. That is a lot of green going on in her living room and quite a few patterns between the geometric wallpaper, striped couch and prints on her pillows. I do like green but in smaller does. Very pretty soft aqua room!

Oh my, that is just sooo pretty! Love every room but agreed that the green wallpaper is just a tad much however the house itself is beyond charming...wonderfully done, so fresh and crisp! Awwhhh.....spring is in the air. Thanks for sharing!

It's pretty but nothing jumped out at me that I totally loved.
But hey, we can't all love everything the same or life would be boring!
