Cottage Style Rooms - So Warm and Cozy

"Everyone can identify with a fragrant garden, with the beauty of a sunset, with the quiet of nature, with a warm and cozy cottage".
                                                                                                Thomas Kincade

Unpretentious and cozy that's what the cottage  style  of decor  is all about.  If you  love soft color palettes, natural fabrics, re-purposed furniture, and sweet florals, like I do, this style of decor is for you.

Basics of Cottage Style Architecture:
  • Beaded board  
  • Exposed beams  
  • White walls
  • Salvaged  wood

Elements of Cottage Style  Rooms:
  • Casual furniture  
  • Eclectic mix of old and new accessories  
  • Mixing flea market finds with new pieces  
  • Blending floral patterns with neutral tones
  • Petite  stripes  
  • Woven bakets and rugs
  • Adding cozy accessories such as knobby throws and blankets
  • Open shelving in the kitchen to display vintage wares

Those are just some of the elements of incorporating the cottage style. Just  remember to add character, warmth and above all your own personal touch with cut branches and  flowers  to  convey  a  fresh  and  cozy feeling.

        These room just say come on in, and stay a while.
