A Home with Cottage Interiors in a Former Cambridge Shop

On a quiet road with pretty 18th and 19th-century houses in central Cambridge, you can find this beautiful light home with cottage interiors. The light 1,600 sq ft house is located in an old shop, and the current owner has redesigned the space into an airy home.

The vibrant blue facade of the former Cambridge shop tells you the accent color that was used in the home. Almost all rooms in this light cottage-style home have blue as an accent color, from pastel to deep blue.

On the other side of the garden, a former stable for the grocer’s yard has been turned into a beautiful guesthouse with two bedrooms.

Natural light floods into the large open-plan kitchen via the original sash windows. The wooden floor, beige cabinets, and large wooden dining table give the room a cozy cottage style.
