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

Summer cottage is a purely functional place, andThere is no sense in investing in its design, if only there was a roof over your head, right? Not at all: the house, which we will describe, attracts with its decoration, cozy and eclectic. Rest in it leaves an indelible impression and inspires changes in your own home. This house in the forest, near San Francisco, passes through the popular service airbnb.com Rachel Khong (Rachel Khong), editor, writer and amateur designer. The house attracts the attention of designers and architects - in fact here you can find inspiring ideas and examples of original and original design. We did not stay aside. After all, the house was made almost for the same projects that were popular in the times of our parents. And now there are plenty of such houses-huts. Rachel Khong, editor of Lucky Peach magazine Editor and author of articles in the magazine on gastronomy and cooking, Rachel is happy to direct her creative energy to home improvement, where her family rested during the summer when she was still a schoolgirl. It is the time spent here, alone with the books and food that my mother prepared, determined what she is doing now-reads and writes about the delicious. Luckypeach.com Rachel honestly warns her guests - there is not enough space in the house and there is no freezer and TV. But there is a magnificent nature around, a collection of vinyl records, a wood oven and a set of cookbooks for all occasions. This house is ideal for artists, musicians,Writers and romantics. Rachel Khong Sunny first floor gained popularity in the 60-70s of the last century. To build such a house is simple and cheap, but the triangular form imposes certain limitations - for example, a spacious first floor contrasts with the top of the pyramid, a dark and close second floor where the bedroom is usually located. Tilted walls can make furniture choices more difficult, and a staircase takes up a lot of space. Nevertheless, for recreation such a house is ideal - it fits perfectly into a forest or mountain landscape and to it simply attach a picturesque veranda, without disturbing the harmony of the construction. In addition, he simply has an incomparable old-fashioned charm. Indeed, the ladder occupies a fair amountFloor, this is real, but it can be said with certainty that the occupied place does not vanish in vain: under it is conveniently located an open shelving for books and utensils. Steps effectively zoniruyut room - in one of its half you can, for example, relax on the couch with a magazine, and in the other - listen to music or play. This division is also emphasized by bright 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. Light kitchen for the amateur culinary enthusiasts RachelProfessionally writes about food - it's no surprise that there are so many cooking books in the summer house. Cooking in this kitchen is a pleasure. It is light, spacious and provides enough space to store everything you need, from the magnetic strip on the wall to the organizer under the ceiling. The view from the windows even the simplest work will make it pleasant. And you can eat a delicious dinner outside, on the terrace. Spacious, eclectic bathroomTop light - but there is a noticeable retro lamp and a wooden spacious chest of drawers with a large mirror. The pattern of black and white triangles on the curtain in the soul echoes with the pattern on the rug. The floor of the shower is in the recess - here it is possible to take a bath. A perfect compromise in the eternal dispute. A cozy dark bedroom. The bedroom is located inThe far corner of the second floor, under the roof itself - this is a closed and contented dark space in which it perfectly sleeps. Light from a small window is clearly not enough, so there is a hanging lampshade, and a lamp for reading, and a ceiling light. Nothing superfluous: a tree, a white bed, a leather armchair and an old-fashioned carpet with a fine pattern. There is not a roomy wardrobe, but there is a bedside table, a bookshelf and even a woven basket for small things - it's better not to take anything extra with you. Updating a house is an unfinished process, so do not count on excellence, but simply enjoy interesting features. Rachel Khong An ideal dacha is a place where all the difficultiesRetreat before harmony and comfort. Why do you need a freezer if there are fine restaurants near the house, and freshly prepared food in a comfortable kitchen can be immediately eaten in the courtyard, enjoying the scenery? Why on vacation TV, if there is a record player, a set of games, a collection of excellent books and time for communication? Outside the city, you can turn off the phone, forget about business and rest for 100 percent, and take the idea of ​​a simple and spectacular arrangement with you to a city apartment. Enjoy the views, silence and nature. Rest and relax. But just in case, there is a fast Internet. Rachel Khong
