Cabin Fever

I have always had dreams of renovating (and owning) a teeny tiny cottage somewhere I could escape to. So when I saw the cabin that Smitten Studio’s Sarah Sherman Samuel worked hard to transform, I became- well- smitten!! They took a nondescript, modern shack and turned it into my dream getaway! Check it out!

I love the black exterior with white framed glass doors. LOVE.


What a location!!!


An open and airy living space.



The renovated kitchen looks so fabulous- adore the open shelves, butcher block counters and overall simple, clean look.



The one bedroom in the cottage sleeps 4- the main bed has the fantastic Woods wallpaper by Cole and Sons behind it while the bunk beds on the other side of the room ingeniously have curtains for privacy!


A gorgeous IKEA hack (directions here)



The bathroom was totally redone. See all the before pictures on Sarah’s blog.


Sarah also is a graphic designer- a very talented one- check out the details of this wedding she helped design:




AND she has a cute little company of home goods called A Sunny Afternoon. ADORBS.



AND, did I mention she looks like THIS?


Yeah, that’s a lot of talent in a very pretty package! ( p.s. #notfair )

    OMG, the Floors! I was shocked to read that they installed hardwood laminate. Oh, and they did it THEMSELVES. I can barely install a light bulb in a socket. AMAZE.

  7. I would give anything for a little get away cabin. Love how she utilized the space. Sometimes a small cozy space is just what the doctor ordered. P.S. drooling over the butcher block counter tops. Perfect in this cabin kitchen.
