Design Shuffle Guest Post: Bungalow Living

Hello all!  I'm so excited to have my first Guest post today!  That's right, my first S&S Guest was given the rights to her very own feature (can you believe I let go of the reigns, just a little, or perhaps I just loosened them).  What better to share with you all a topic after my own heart, design.  Because I work for a small design firm in San Diego (with confidentiality agreements and all), I'm limited keep all projects and related material at work.  Boo.  But good thing we have the wonderful Susi of Design Shuffle here to share a style adored by not only me, but if I had to guess, many of you too!  I'm thrilled to  have her share the amazing details and photos of Bungalow Living.  Can't wait to read your comments already!

Hi, I am Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, a community where interior designers and other design professionals showcase their design projects, share inspirations, and network with other design lovers. Speaking of design love, I'm excited to be guest blogging about bungalow interior design style for Sweet Peas & Seashells today.  Bungalows in the Craftsman style have so much vintage charm. Here are eight rooms I'm lovin' bungalow style. Enjoy!

Craftsman style details are something we love about bungalow style. Built-in bookcases that surround a fireplace are classic for a bungalow living room. Love the dark crown molding.

Love the open flow of this dining and kitchen space. The blackboard wall is so charming and really makes the colorful chairs pop. Now there is great, colorful bungalow style.

Bungalow kitchens may not be huge but they are full of charm and style. Love the dark gray cabinet color with the lighter cream rustic island. Vertical space is used to give this small footprint maximum storage.

A small corner is turned into a charming eating area filled with lots of decorating ideas in this bungalow kitchen. Love the horizontal wood paneling in the nook‚ a great bungalow style detail.

One of the best things about bungalows is the architectural charm of bungalow style.  Beamed ceiling, dark brick fireplace and mullioned windows add so much style to this living room.

Millwork is another great bungalow style architectural detail we love. The beadboard on the ceiling and wainscoting on the walls are gorgeous in this living room. Love the mushroom gray against creamy white on the walls.

Bungalow Designs

Popular in today's bungalow bathroom designs, this all white bathroom has tons of bungalow style from the white subway tiles to the original built-in medicine cabinet. Nickel fixtures are period appropriate and add sparkle.

Bungalow meets beach cottage in this living room. The exposed vaulted beamed ceiling is a cool architectural detail. Love all the white and natural materials in the furnishings and accessories. Images ( 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 )
