Enter into the kitchen and living room area. The light beige walls and white trim provide a blank canvas for happy orange accents. Orange is an energetic color that creates an uplifting atmosphere.
The vaulted ceiling and exposed beams create the feeling of spaciousness. The kitchen features white appliances that blend in seamlessly with the white cabinetry.
The quaint living room area has a wood-burning stove and two matching bookcases for storage and display. Comfortable armchairs can be moved easily for different seating arrangements.
This view of the home shows the short hallway that leads to the bedroom, bathroom and back door. Hardwood floors throughout add a luxurious element.
The bedroom is small yet cozy with a queen size bed and unique headboard. The window provides natural light and views of the surrounding natural beauty.
Classic polished nickel fixtures were chosen for the bathroom. A small sink vanity saves space, while the crisp white walls help the room feel bigger.
