The clean, timeless look of shiplap paneling is a foolproof way to infuse a room with cozy cottage character. Why is this design style taking America by storm? We think we've found the answer in these charming coastal rooms.
Cedar shingles and wooden brackets accent the peaked gables of this 1,184-square-foot home, while details like decorative wood paneling below the windows, a standing seam metal roof, and the stone chimney add crowning touches.
At 484 square feet, this sweet little cottage, with its charming gabled roof and gracious front porch, is ideal for an oceanfront retreat for two. The plan features a living room, kitchen with a peninsula and plenty counter space (plus a pantry), and a master bedroom with an en suite closet and bath.
