The Country Cottage Style
In All Its Glory

  • penned by RF

There is no particular period of time that defines what the Country Cottage Style look was.

Standing the test of time the little house was a place of refuge and safety, and then took on a life of its own and is the cottage we now know.

A simple, newly built cottage can have the same charm as the original little masterpieces of the past; with their cozy fireplaces and low ceilings and somewhat storybook characteristics.

Mindfull of the past, we cottage dwellers now have all the comforts of a modern home, something sorely lacking in days of old.

Country Flare Simple And Natural

The Country Cottage look and feel is all natural with simple wood as the order of the day.

Some living rooms and kitchens have wooden ceiling, floors and cabinets that make it clean and practical.

Everything inside ties into the natural world outside with a comfortable ease.

Stone fireplace

If you like the more traditional small cottage, a country brick fireplace could fit the bill. You can just imagine sitting by the fire in a nice cozy chair.

A big soft comfy couch with a handmade quilt draped across the back is real country.

Maybe it's an heirloom, a treasured piece of history made by someone you love. These special touches make a cottage a home.

Lets Get Cozy!

Some Cottages will be new and some old, but with your loving touch any cottage can become the home of your dreams.

Stick to a few rules of color coordinating and keep your furniture in scale with the room.

Fabrics add another dimension to Country Cottage style. Adding warmth to soften the hard edges they blend and link to other patterns in the room.

Your Cottage my be in the woods or have lots of trees in your yard, like my home, that gives it the feel of that outdoor country quality.

Early cottages, by design, were just built in a clearing in the woods.
