For this coastal home case study, we’ve once again found inspiration from the fabulous Julia at Hooked on Houses. Specifically, she drew our attention to the humble but charming cottage featured in the thriller, Half Light, starring Demi Moore and set on the Cornish coast.
We admittedly haven’t seen the movie yet. But, the plot features Demi Moore as a writer who has tragically lost her son. She escapes to a secluded cottage by the sea to focus on meeting a deadline.
Intrigue and mystery follow, although it’s hard to imagine anything could go wrong in a lovely room like this. Come on, just look at that bench!
Hmm, seeing as the house is mostly one room, it seems like ghosts would have a hard time finding a place to hide. But, more to the point, this is the perfect example of how just the right amount of clutter can look welcoming.
It’s not a fancy work space, but we wouldn’t say no to spending a few hours here with a cup of coffee and a good book. Also, we’re drooling over that corner cabinet.
Now that we’ve had a peek at the beautiful backdrop of Half Light, we know what we’ll be watching the next time we have a stormy night!
