Wooden house in the forest: how to equip a small cottage

Summer cottage is a purely functional place, andThere is no point in investing in its design, if only there was a roof over your head, right? Not at all: the house, which we will talk about, attracts with its design, cozy and eclectic. Relaxing in it leaves a lasting impression and inspires change in your own home This cabin in the woods, near San Francisco, rented through the popular service airbnb.com Rachel Khong, editor, writer and amateur designer. The house attracts the attention of designers and architects - because here you can find inspiring ideas and examples of distinctive and original design. We did not stand aside either. After all, the house was made almost according to the same projects that were popular in the days of our parents. And now there are plenty of such huts. Rachel Khong, Editor of Lucky Peach Magazine Editor and author of articles for a gastronomy and culinary magazine, Rachel is happy to channel her creative energy into the home, where her family spent the summer vacationing when she was still a schoolgirl. It was the time spent here, alone with the books and food that my mother was preparing, that determined what she is doing now - reading and writing about tasty things. luckypeach.com Rachel honestly warns her guests - there is little space in the house and there is no freezer or TV. But there is a magnificent nature around, a collection of vinyl records, a wood stove and a set of cookbooks for all occasions. This home is ideal for artists, musicians,writers and romantics. Rachel Khong Sunny Ground Floor gained popularity in the 60s and 70s of the last century. Building such a house is simple and cheap, but the triangular shape imposes certain restrictions - for example, the spacious first floor contrasts with the top of the pyramid, the dark and cramped second floor, where the bedroom is usually located. Sloping walls can make furniture selection difficult, and the stairs to the top take up a lot of space. Nevertheless, such a house is ideal for relaxation - it fits perfectly into a forest or mountain landscape and it is easy to attach a picturesque veranda to it without disturbing the harmony of the structure. Plus he just has an incomparable old-fashioned charm. Indeed, the staircase takes up a hefty partfloors, this is real, but it is safe to say that the occupied space is not wasted: an open rack for books and dishes is conveniently located under it. The steps effectively zone the room - in one half of it you can, for example, relax on the couch with a magazine, and in the other, you can listen to music or play. This division is also emphasized by the brightly colored carpets on the wooden floor. The front part of the house is almost completely glazed- thanks to a transparent entrance door and windows in sloping walls, sunlight literally fills the room. The main colors of the interior - of course, a universal white in combination with the tone of natural wood and with the addition of green. Full harmony with the natural shades of the forest outside the window. Rachel's bright kitchen for hobbyistswrites professionally about food - no wonder there are so many cookbooks in the summer house. Cooking in this kitchen is a pleasure. It is light, spacious and has ample storage space for everything you need, from a magnetic strip on the wall to an organizer under the ceiling. The view from the windows will make even the simplest work pleasant. And you can eat a delicious dinner outside, on the terrace. Spacious eclectic bathroom No bathroomupper light - but there is a noticeable lamp in retro style and a spacious wooden chest of drawers with a large mirror. The pattern of black and white triangles on the shower curtain echoes the pattern on the rug. The floor of the shower is located in a recess - here it is quite possible to take a bath. An excellent compromise in an eternal dispute -. Cozy dark bedroom The bedroom is located inthe far corner of the second floor, under the roof itself, is a closed and contented dark space in which to sleep well. There is clearly not enough light from a small window, so there is a pendant lampshade, a reading lamp, and a ceiling light. Nothing extra: wood, white bedding, a leather armchair and an old-fashioned rug with a small pattern. There is no roomy wardrobe, but there is a bedside table, a bookshelf and even a wicker basket for small things - it is better not to take anything extra with you on vacation. Renovating your home is a work in progress, so don't count on perfection, just enjoy the fun features. Rachel Khong An ideal summer cottage is a place where all the difficultiesretreat before harmony and comfort. Why do you need a freezer if there are excellent restaurants near your home, and you can eat freshly prepared food in a convenient kitchen in the yard, enjoying the scenery? Why TV on vacation when you have a turntable, a set of games, a collection of excellent books, and time to socialize? Outside the city, you can turn off the phone, forget about business and relax 100 percent, and take the ideas of a simple and effective arrangement with you to a city apartment. Enjoy the views, silence and nature. Relax and unwind. But just in case, there is also a fast Internet connection. Rachel Khong
