Sylvan Lake Cottage Part 2: Dining Room & Kitchen


We're slowly sharing a cottage project we completed a few years ago now. With so many rooms and photos we thought it best to divide the spaces rather than blast you with too much all at once. We first posted the living room, now we're moving to the kitchen and dining spaces.

Looking to seat ten, we chose a long, narrow table with easy to maneuver (and clean!) chairs, The dining room bridges the kitchen with the living room as well as provides access to the outdoor deck. Adjacent is a desk area with Stikwood accent wall. This space is perfect for large groups, casual dining, and easy to maintain, checking all the boxes!


The kitchen is soft, simple and classic. It's tight to the ceiling cabinetry provides maximum storage and there's plenty of room for many helpers. There is overflow seating and the opportunity for a quick perch around the island with "wishbone style" stools. The cabinetry is Benjamin Moore Simply White OC-117 and backsplash tile a soft creamy glass adding texture with little contrast. The result is a serene working area, no fuss and everything has a place. Exactly what you'd want for cottage living. 

Up next...the master suite!
