Cottage Retreats : Decorating Ideas for Every Mood
They're the comfy abodes of fairy tales, imbued with old-fashioned charm and warmth. Regardless of location or style, cottages offer sheer enjoyment and relaxation. There, in a shingled saltbox by the sea or log cabin in the woods, you can indulge in life's simple pleasures. Bring a wonderful simplicity of design into your living space, using a medley of furnishings and natural materials. First, consider the type of cottage you own and its traditions. Choose from six different moods: tranquil, romantic, cozy, nostalgic, rustic, and whimsical. A Cape Cod might favor white wicker furniture and a soothing blue palette, while rough-hewn furniture suits a mountain retreat. Lakeside refuges often use stones from the surrounding land, and sweet hideaways blossom in the shade of an English country garden. Whether you opt for florals and lacy sheets or Windsor chairs and checked table linens, your home will have flair and individuality!
