Wintery Cornish Cottage

Today I dream about this wonderful cottage by the sea located in Cornwall, England.

Originally built in the 1800s on 17th-century foundations the house is a perfect combination of rustic charm and modern elegance. It's so serene that living there must feel like holiday every day :)

I love the subtle, melancholic wintery colours of white and different shades of grey warmed with milky coffee shades of brown. It seems just perfect for all those long, mellow autumn evenings which you could spend reading books with a warm cat on your lap.

Grey was never my favourite colour when it comes to interiors but now I see how perfect it looks when combined with white or contrasted with brown. It does still look a little cold, but also mysterious and really stylish.
