Peek inside a cozy cottage with colorful walls and a surprisingly spacious layout

This adorable house surrounded by trees in Portland, Oregon, has surfaced recently on Zillow. Built in 1923, the historic home still features many of the classic architectural details from that time period.
The one-bedroom cottage is just over 800 square feet (74 square meters) and has a more traditional closed-off layout than its modern counterparts. The open concept layout has been the leading trend for years, but according to the New York Times, the closed kitchen could be making a comeback. Some homeowners are starting to prefer a private kitchen, where cooking smells and messes can be hidden from view when entertaining.
Check out the closed kitchen, and the rest of the home, in the full tour below. Would your dream home have an open or closed kitchen?
The living room is large and welcoming with wood floors and a wood-burning fireplace. A Persian rug with red accents coordinates with the red walls in the dining room.
Charming built-in bookshelves adorn the entrance to the dining room and are evidence of the home's historic origins.
The vibrant red dining room is nestled between the kitchen and living room. The capiz shell chandelier adds a bit of glamour and shine.
Although the kitchen is closed off from the rest of the house, it's still bright and airy with white cabinets and windows to let in light. Yellow walls and a green tiled backsplash create a playful color scheme.
The bedroom is cozy and intimate with moody, dark walls and views of the surrounding woods. The crisp white trim provides a nice contrast to the dark paint.
The studio in the backyard has endless possibilities and is an unexpected bonus for any potential homeowner.
