White Cottages

Casual Cottage Entryway

A painted floor adds impact to a white space.

White Galley Kitchen

Visually expand a space with white.

The narrow kitchen of the same cottage seems wider due to the white cupboards, simple backsplash and uncluttered storage. Views to the lush surroundings can be enjoyed while washing dishes.

Laurentians Living Room

Soft shades of white add a relaxed feel.

Heidi's seating area has a subdued palette that evokes a laid-back, beachy vibe. Leaving the ceiling beams natural draws the eye upward, making a stunning pendant light the focal point.

Open-Concept White Cottage

All-white beams make the ceiling appear high.

Heidi made the most of the open-concept living space by assigning different corners different functions. Banquette seating in the corner allows a tighter fit for the dining table, while a separate seating area is the perfect spot to curl up with a book.

Laurentians Bedroom

A soft, almost-white green on the walls lends a serene vibe.

Heidi chose another standout pendant light for the principal bedroom, drawing the eye upward toward the beamed ceilings. White bedding with hints of subdued pattern is in keeping with the neutral palette of the cottage.
