Cottage Makeover: A Breezy & Boho Getaway

In this mindful makeover, designer Sam Sacks shows us how she reinvented an 800-square-foot hunting shack into a spacious oasis for the whole family. She completely transformed the original space and added an addition, which holds enough space for her family of five. The cottage exudes serenity and bohemian vibes thanks to rustic materials like wood, rattan and leather. The designer defines laid-back liveability with an organized IKEA kitchen, ample comfy seating and an airy principal bedroom with views of the lake.
