Last summer, when we visited my family in Portugal, I was able to see my mom's newly renovated guest house. We did not stay there, as her house was big enough for all of us... One of the reasons why my mom wanted to have a guest house in her back yard was so that her twin sister (who has lived alone for the past 20 years) would have a place to move into, as they get older.
You may know, from some of my previous posts (such as this one), that my mom loves white.... These photos were taken right after work was complete, so only the bare minimum accessories were in place.
Downstairs is a small hallway, a bedroom and a bathroom.
The stairs will eventually receive some live palm trees and other greenery... I love how the glass tiles let the light in
Upstairs is a large and open living area, complete with a fireplace and built-in shelves.
The kitchen is understated but functional.
I love this built in nook...
Ikea's Ektorp sofas with a granite grey slipcover are perfect for this space...
The breakfast nook has a retractable awning, so you can soak in the sunshine if you wish...
... And who wouldn't want to enjoy this view...??!!
