Home Tour: Modern Cottage Style in Hinsdale

Happy New Year! We’re ending the first week of the year on a high note with a tour of a Hinsdale build filled with charming details. This modern cottage home was finished last year and we popped in just before move-in day to capture the interiors. We feel like this home serves as a beautiful example of how quintessential cottage style can be complemented by contemporary design elements and we’re thrilled to welcome you in to take a look!

Dramatic, oversized windows make a stunning statement throughout this home. The front entry was cleverly designed to drench the entire first floor with natural light (bonus: a peek of the swoon-worthy floating stairways). Clean lines, dark trim and pitched gable rooflines blend with traditional accents such as the custom stucco brackets which flank an inviting covered porch.

The kitchen conveys a remarkable feeling of warmth thanks to thoughtfully-selected soft white perimeter cabinetry and rich wood tones.

Distinctive details abound in this space, from the gorgeous Bertazzoni range to the stained cedar ceiling paneling.

Our clients had a clear vision for the character of their home, and custom millwork played a significant role in bringing it to life.

 Before we head upstairs, we're stealing one last view of this entry. Light beams in as floating stairways lead to the second floor and a finished lower level.

This master suite is a thing of beauty, but it also affords a practical layout. An expansive walk-in closet is tucked into the master bath, simplifying the morning routine.

The masterful custom millwork and arched doorways we fell for on the first floor continue upstairs, creating an elegant, relaxing retreat.
