Katharine Peachey's Vintage Cottage

11

Katharine Peachey is a photographer with a love for antiques and a passion for interiors. Her home, a cottage in Greenwich, is one of the most lovely places I've ever seen...filled with beautiful furniture, vintage finds, original floorboards, and lots of character! And her photos (all of which are shot on film) capture it perfectly. So much interiors photography is styled to the point of being stiff--you’re left with no emotional connection to the home. But these photos feel so charming and homey, they really make me want to pop by for a visit!

I love open storage for pretty pans and utensils. It’s both beautiful to look at, and functional too!

Hang pans and utensils from s-hooks in the kitchen

Cozy reading corner

Such a cozy reading corner. You can tell that her books are really a collection built out of a love for reading, not just styled shelves!

Beautiful vintage cottage

And those floorboards…sigh.

Tulips

Pretty bedroom

Bathroom sink

Hang a vintage mirror in the bathroom

Such a clever and beautiful solution for the bathroom--hang a vintage mirror from pegs instead of mounting one to the wall!

Backyard garden

Potted succulents

Which room or detail is your favorite? I really love her kitchen, but it's all sooo pretty it's hard to choose a favorite!

All photos by Katharine Peachey, first spotted over on Apartment Apothecary.

P.S. Head over to Coco / Mingo for today's 24 Merry Days giveaway--it's a good one!

    It reminds me of a vacation cabin. All the hand me downs, well loved fabrics, coffee pot ready, small space full of everyday used and loved things. Nothing staged. Bed not made. ;) I would enjoy a visit.

      That's exactly how I feel. A lovely, relaxed space full of simple pleasures and well-loved items. I would love to curl up there with a mug of coffee and a good book. Bliss!

    I really love that vintage mirror. So much! I also really like the kitchen and the bed frame. And the closet library!!

    Oooh, what gorgeous interiors!! The bathroom has to be my favorite - and the outside garden area (that cat!) love it all! Thanks for sharing Aileen!

      Thanks Jessica! The bathroom is so perfect in it's simplicity...and I reaaaaally want an outdoor garden area too! Although I don't have much of a green thumb, so I guess my tiny patio is okay for now. But someday!
