House Tour!

Cozy oceanside charm abounds in this 800 square foot beach cottage.  This one bedroom, one bath house on Martha's Vineyard disproves the old adage that bigger is better.  Just one look at this small home inspires me!

This living room, with its 11 foot cathedral ceilings and big windows brings the outdoors in and lets light into a small space giving the feeling of depth and spaciousness!

Skimping on square footage doesn't mean skimping on luxury!  A beautiful cherry and soapstone fireplace adds character and charm to the living room. 

Cupboards in the kitchen are tailored around appliances to utilize the space more efficiently.

What a lovely storage spot!  Right off the kitchen this pantry provides ample space for linens and sundries.  I love the beaded board!

 Light and more light seems to be the key to creating calm in this tiny home. What better view than an ocean view?

I am green with envy over this space-saver dining nook!
I think I would trade a little square footage for an ocean view.  How about you??
