FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE STORYBOOK HOME
Vashon, Washington has a French Country cottage that is a storybook, fairytale home comes true. The sign at the front door says Welcome to Candyland with a bubblegum machine underneath. Pinch me, is it real?
After one look I was smitten. I’d buy this charming home if I lived in the area in a heartbeat.
Rose colored stalky flowers lure you in to frolic in the front yard.
French Country cottage entrance with its delightful Welcome to Candyland chalkboard sign. I do have a gumball machine exactly like this one, but in red and black and it’s square. I had the stand at one time, but that is long gone.
Bright and happy porch with bead board ceiling and church pew.
Sweet gingerbread storybook kitchen, yet it has…
this modern, kind of vintage table at the window seat. The stools tucked under the island are like old-time soda shop stools. What I love is all of it, but especially the half-moon window above the sink.
This is inside the lower turret looking out over the porch. Love all the decor and whimsical chandeliers.
An unexpected fairytale fireplace design.
I almost missed the stained glass window.
or blue? All you need in a storybook, fairytale is a bed to dream in and a mirror-mirror on the wall.
