This California home has a Cape Cod-style cottage vibe. Seeing the photos of this house make me looooonnngg for summer! Love. It. It's especially lively and airy thanks to the colour choices and open feeling. Not to mention, the windows seem to let in a lot of light!
The kitchen is gorgeous and is almost a farmhouse-cottage style. The open shelving is a marvelous idea; it lets you see where everything is. Plus, your dishes etc. act as a pretty display and add some character to the room. Speaking of character, the sink is definitely a focal point. I love that it's a farmhouse style basin and the faucets certainly steal the show.
The rest of the home is as bright and beautiful as the kitchen & I love the calm blue hues that are spread throughout. Take a look :
