We were so honored to have this recent design project featured in the latest issue of Cottages & Bungalows magazine!
Lisa has always dreamed of living in a comfortable, relaxed, Florida Cracker style cottage, with views and breezes from the water that create her “Barefoot Dream” lifestyle.
“Cottage on Cabot” was built with the true Florida Cracker architecture of the past, and blends perfectly with its historic surroundings. Cracker architecture was used widely in the 19th century in Florida. Florida cracker homes are characterized by metal roofs, wrap around porches, long and straight central hallways from the front to the back of the home. Peterson loved this concept so she incorporated many windows and doors that open onto the large deck, allowing the constant ocean breeze to fill the house.
When entering the home, you immediately see the stunning blend of textures, organic woods, and fun printed fabrics. It is a casual and comfortable vibe. The flooring throughout the home is french wide plank white oak.
Fun printed fabrics really pop among this sea of white shiplap! The floor to ceiling windows really showcase the stunning views of the water.
This 1800’s antique farmhouse table from Belgium is the focal point of the dining room where many family dinners are shared.
This dream kitchen has so many special features. The oversized island is a favorite family gathering spot where food, fun, & laughter are shared. The custom banquette is the perfect spot for morning coffee and watching the boats go by. Finally, we love the custom hood and open shelving design.
The master suite includes a beautiful upholstered bed and large master bath with White Thassos hand laid herringbone floors, Calcutta marble vanities and double barn doors at the entry.
A few final favorite shots include the powder room and hallway with built-in writing desk . We hope you enjoyed this tour of Cottage on Cabot! It was truly a labor of love.
Here is the layout from Cottages and Bungalows. They did such a beautiful job!
