Countryside Cottage


The open and airy interiors of this cottage definitely offer a tranquil retreat, and the pretty and polished furnishings belie the fact that an active family lives in every square inch of these sunlit spaces. Avery has created a kid-and-pet-friendly abode where daughter Willa Rose and sons Hopper and Walton, along with a menagerie of pets, are free to run and roam to their hearts’ content. “Yes, I love beautiful things,” says Avery, “but nothing is so precious in our home that it cannot be touched (even if gingerly), sat on, and occasionally jumped on by an imaginative child or curious cat or dog.”
