Cottage Decorating

Now that March has arrived and winter is almost behind us, it’s time to think about a little redecorating. Cottage Style is the perfect thing to use if you would like to freshen your look and give your home a simple, clean, light, and airy feel.

Easy Cottage Style: Comfortable Interiors for Country Living proves that cottage style can be created in all types of home. The authors show how to use fabrics, colors, and rustic materials to turn every room in your home into that special cottage spot. Included are easy-to-follow projects for cottage-inspired furnishings and decorations.

Cottage style includes faded fabrics, antiqued furniture, and whimsical accessories, and Decorating Cottage Style demonstrates how to use all these things. Projects shown are simple yet beautiful and show how both old and new can work together.

New Cottage Style: Decorating Ideas for Casual, Comfortable Living provides lots of ideas on how to achieve a cottage look in a home in the country, the suburbs, the woods, or the oceanfront. It gives practical ideas on paint, furniture, fabrics, and accessories. It also shows how to incorporate architectual features when creating your cottage look.
