A family of five blends comfort and style in this charming cottage that easily mixes cherished heirloom furnishings with fun, new finds.
Homeowners Will and Kathryn McCraney knew they loved their 1921 Mississippi cottage before they even moved in. “When we were still in graduate school, I walked by the house and told the people who lived there, ‘If you ever sell your house call me,’” Kathryn says. “They called two days later!” The McCraneys have since created an inviting home with charming curb appeal that is carried throughout the cottage’s interior.
Layered in a crisp palette of white, the McCraney home offers a family-friendly environment by pulling in cherished heirlooms and handmade pieces that add loads of warmth and a personal touch. “I think if you love your house you can put your personality into it, and my personality is a little bit old and a little bit new,” Kathryn says.
