Interior Design — DIY Cottage-Style Home

2587 ratings | 188231 views
Decor and DIY blogger Kim Power shares a look inside her cottage-inspired home. Get her tips on how to live with white decor, plus thrifty DIY ideas that add character to a space. Boasting an urban farmhouse look, Kim’s small house features white as the dominant hue, but it’s far from stark. In the living room, slip-covered couches and chairs are topped with a mix of store-bought and handmade pillows, while plywood shiplap walls offer a cottage feel. Beadboard was added to a wall in the breakfast nook and the peninsula in the kitchen for a hit of country. The kitchen cabinets were painted white to match the palette in the rest of the home. Kim’s collection of ironstone jugs displayed on open shelves offers yet another dash of personality.

I don't even like farmhouse, but her home is beautiful! She does white very well, because sometimes it can look boring & that is restful & tranquil, a place to relax. It reminds me of the feeling of my great-grandmother's house. (Even though it wasn't white! Lol)

I know so many people who need this kind of change in their lives. To move away from the dark 2000s colors and move towards brighter whites with clean lines.

I LOVE your home and I share your sense of style. I too slipcover EVERYTHING in white. With 4 cats, it all needs to be washable! lol And I really enjoy your use of blues - thats what I use as my color too.

I have the curtains in your breakfast nook and I love them in my bedroom

Okay, I usually the first to comment about the bloody white room trend. But in this case, I give a thumbs up because this is not a trend to her, but her lifestyle for over 20 years. I really feel this is her personality vrs a designer trying to be on trend with the "white room look," which I usually hate. Not my style but it really suits her and you can feel it.

I love how the house is dominant while but still feel cozy. A lot of time people paint their home white and ended up looking cold. And I love how she incorporate natural color and blue, it feels so refreshing but not overwhelming. I can see myself enjoying the house as well.

I love White looks so clean and fresh and makes your home looks so large
Karla K (1 year ago)
Your home is beautiful, warm and serene. You say you don't have much art, but you have some beautiful pictures (family?) and that warms up your space too. I love that you've controlled your spending by finding second hand and "as is" furniture. Thanks for the great tips. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your beautiful home! :)
Kim Power Style (1 year ago)
Most of the slipcovers came with the furniture ( IKEA) some I've made myself.
Karla K (1 year ago)
Oh, and where did you find your furniture slipcovers?
Look Now (1 year ago)
Very Beautiful .. I decorated my home in white and had a white theme in several rooms...however after a few years of serene, white calmness, it begins to feel cold and cheerless - almost bleak. I'm so glad we have brought back some colour to our rooms.
Kim Power Style (1 year ago)
The wonderful thing about having a white/neutral backdrop is that I can add colour whenever I want, and I do! I change it up all the time.
Rena Smith (1 year ago)
would luv to get the paint color because white is tricky....doesn't want it to look too sterile.
Kim Power Style (1 year ago)
All the paint colours are on their website. I have mostly used: BM simply white, cloud white and chantilly lace.
ladydelia77 deli (1 year ago)
what is the name of the paint color you have on the walls, and who makes it?
Kim Power Style (1 year ago)
All that info is on their website. I've mostly used BM simply white, cloud white and chantilly lace.

Jennifer Prevost (1 year ago)
Beautiful, yes. But I find it boring... no art? That's a sin, in my humble opinion. Nice, but I love colour and contrast.

I agree. somewhat boring especially with little on the walls and little colors.

I would love to go in her place one day and paint her walls dark chacoal, black or deep navy. Curious to see how's that gonna turn out. LoL just kidding

lovely lovely!!!
Candis C (1 year ago)
that is definitely a lot of white! her house is on trend. definitely giving that coastal feel. I have NEVER met a slip cover that was easy to take on and off of furniture unless it was a sheet. I would've never guessed this was a two-story house. I really like her oval coffee table. the one thing I must say. I was surprised that she's married bc this looks like the home of a single woman. I cannot imagine a man living in all of this white. her home looks showroom quality. it's really beautiful...I just know I couldn't handle all of that crisp white on the walls and the furniture.
Kim Power Style (1 year ago)
Thank you Candis for that lovely compliment! I have three grown daughters and two are avid red wine drinkers..I let them drink inside in the cold months.. lol JK. the white really isn't that difficult to keep clean. Our home is very lived in, I'm the last person to live in something that's too precious. Slipcovers make all the difference, I wouldn't have anything white that wasn't washable. :)
Candis C (1 year ago)
Kim Power Style You have been married for 30 years???!!! Decorating must keep u young! There was one other designer I saw on this channel obsessed with white. I think she had more gray accents. Her style was cool and on trend too. Kudos to u for keeping all of that white clean. Clearly ur Merlot parties are held in the backyard. lol
Kim Power Style (1 year ago)
Haha, I've been married for 30 years and yes my hubby lives here. He really doesn't care what I do style wise. I've painted walls and he's come home and never even noticed! (and they weren't white, lol)
Shalini Sharma (1 year ago)
how do manage this if you have kids. can't imagine it to be so pristine with the little ones running around
Bea M (1 year ago)
I love your style and confidence. It's beautiful! I'm saving this video for future home decor reference 💙.

I find I relax more in a white enviroment as well. It also is who I am. I prefer texture to block colour. Though my home has a few splashes of multi colours in accessories. I love your home, its beautiful.
Carla Merlotti (1 year ago)

I absolutely love cottage style.  It is liveable, casual, and comfy.  No pretense, you can just relax and be at peace.  Well done!
