The former master bedroom became the bath - one that really feels luxurious, like a high end hotel. A space like this truly makes you feel like you are on a getaway and it is a simple enough design that it will work for a long time; nothing to get outdated quickly here.
An old upstairs sitting area became the master bedroom - it features "sharp enough for the city" style, thanks especially to the Benjamin Moore "Blue" wall. I love the use of such an architectural bed frame in a room with interesting pre-existing angles - it really makes for an energized space.
The outdoor area was previously just an open space between the house and garage, now its an open-to-the-outdoors dining room - a super clever use of space that retains the rough and rustic feel of the exteriors of the two adjacent buildings.
The cottage is featured in the new "Makeover" issue of Country Living and it's just one of several features full of excellent transformations and projects - it's the September issue which just came out this week and is on newsstands now.
