Nestled into the Edinburgh coastline in Scotland, this ridiculously sweet little house took ceramicist Lucy Dunce approximately ten years to transform into the property it is today. Originally part of a block of tiny farm cottages, the stone structure was in a terrible state of disrepair—there wasn't even a staircase connecting the top and bottom floor—when Dunce and her carpenter husband first bought it. Now, not only is the house completely renovated, but there's also a work studio just steps away—something the artist has always wanted.
Most of the walls are painted either in white or pastel tones, and outfitted with Japanese-inspired cabinetry made to custom-fit the home. As a nod to its former barnyard life, a farm table serves as the center point of the kitchen, while driftwood art calls to mind the close-by beachfront. Not far off, Dunce's rustic studio looks out over the sea and gardens. Take a good look, below:
