A country cottage full of pretty ideas for vintage looks


Overlooking a meadow and the village pond, this idyllic cottage, in the Netherlands province of North Holland, captured the attention of its new owners before they even stepped inside. They noticed the house every time they drove past with its steeply-pitched red tiled roof and white shipboard cladding. And when at last a for sale sign appeared, they couldn’t wait to see inside.

Although the little house was in good structural condition, the interiors had been stripped of character and period features. It was dark, dated and claustrophobic, but the couple could see its potential and decided they could turn it into a special home.
