Look inside this pristine backyard cottage: the kitchen is gorgeous

Nicknamed the Pear Tree Cottage, this adorable abode is actually a backyard guest house that the owners offer as a vacation rental through Airbnb. The home is located in Vancouver, British Columbia, and is surrounded by lush greenery that the area is known for.
The exterior of the cottage is picturesque with a welcoming porch and a bold red front door. A beautiful pear tree grows nearby, providing the home's moniker, as well as shade on sunny afternoons. The interior consists of a living area, kitchen, one bedroom and one bathroom. Take a full tour of the cottage interior below.

White walls and sleek furniture make the living space bright and airy. Simple textiles soften the space, like the striped rug and flowing curtains. A bookshelf hung close to the ceiling adds interest and stylish storage space.
The living room is open to the kitchen, separated by a charming piano area. Although the home is very small, the open floor plan and flow of the layout make it feel spacious and comfortable.
The kitchen is near flawless with a classic subway tile backsplash, gleaming white countertops and open shelving. Natural wood accents and pops of playful yellow add warmth to the space.
A chalkboard adorns a section of the wall in the kitchen — a perfect spot to leave fun messages or let kids express their creativity. The large island is multipurpose, providing seating, ample work space and storage shelves underneath.
The wood shelves contrast nicely against the bright white backsplash. You can preserve limited hidden storage space by displaying the most stylish dishes and kitchen accessories out in the open.
The bedroom is inviting and laid back with fluffy bedding, a soft traditional rug and more crisp white walls. A skinny table under the window is a clever addition, a great spot to sit and enjoy the beautiful views.

Continuing the all-white theme into the bathroom, the space is clean and simple. Polished nickel fixtures and a vessel sink add touches of luxury.
