Overview

THE SIMPLE, UNIQUE AND INTERESTINGLY appointed cottage is a place for escape, filled with art, books, color, scents, sounds, textures and memories. It is a repository for keepsakes and dreams that help bridge past with future. While technology forces us to think only in terms of productivity, leanness and speed, many of us have begun to pull in the reins, re-explore our goals, challenge our assumptions and seek a lifestyle that captures a strong sense of coherence and tradition. Central to that new approach is a renewed sense of “home.”

See how cottage owners are breaking with tradition and lending a new look to their humble spaces. Differing in style, color, regional taste and liveliness, the cottages showcased are tied together by a delicate thread that honors tradition while looking forward to a lifestyle that is uncluttered, unhurried and reflective of rugged, unapologetic individuality.

As you develop your own special place—your own “vintage cottage,” may you capture a new idea from those who have graciously opened their doors to these unique homes.

As both a store owner and stylist, Molly Hyde English, owner of Camps and Cottages, has worked with designers and home owners for more than ten years in their pursuit of furniture, artwork and period decorative pieces, both old and newly crafted, reminiscent of cottage and lodge living made popular between 1920 and 1940. She is the author of Camps and Cottages, and her work has been featured in Country Home, House Beautiful, the San Francisco Chronicle and the book division of Sunset Books. She has appeared on episodes of HGTV featuring her homes in Berkeley and Laguna Beach in California.

As a documentary landscape, architectural and ethnographic photographer, Tom Lamb’s focus is with concerns for the environment and the need to create a balance between conservation, preservation, tourism, and development. Tom holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design. He has lectured and taught at numerous schools across the country as well as traveling photographic and design workshops and has lectured in West Africa, Mexico, South America, China and Tibet. His photographic work is widely published and collected.

Read an Excerpt

ON A STREET shaded by magnolia trees stands Magnolia Cottage, which dates to 1928. Owners Lynn and Rick Cirelli have given each intimate space in and outside the house its own look—with the intent of ensuring that all of them, when viewed as a whole, comprise a functional and unique cottage.

City records reveal that the cottage was not much more than 900 square feet, just enough room for a small living room, downstairs bedroom and bathroom, and upstairs bedroom. A galley kitchen was squeezed in toward the back of the house. It changed hands nine times over the nearly eighty-year period, and somewhere along the way the space was expanded to 1,500 square feet, a perfect home for Lynn, Rick and their Tibetan terrier, Samie.
