Tidewater Landing - Guest Cottage

A narrow flight of stairs leads visitors to a private cottage above the garage. Accessible via keyless entry, this studio apartment explodes with color and funky, modern styling―vivid painted wicker and wood, playful patterns, and tonal striped walls. In the living area, a shrimp-color cocktail table unites a small armoire, 1950s-style wicker chairs with black-and-white stripes and polka dots, a tufted-back sofa upholstered in pale blue linen, and a sleek, white leather armchair. "The chair brings a great, retro feel to the cottage," Allyson says.

For snoozing, a carved queen bed painted soft green anchors the sleeping corner of the cottage. Nearby, a four-cubby case contains color-coded baskets for overnight necessities, and a bright pink wicker table holds an egg-shape lamp for nighttime reading. The contemporary-cottage juxtaposition extends to the convenient kitchen, with its eclectic mix of wicker accents, stainless appliances, farmhouse-style sink, and soapstone countertops. Even small appliances, such as a genie-bottle-shape blender, get into the groove.
