Missing Cottage Living

Looking back through some of my favorite cottages...

1. COZY COTTAGE:

Kitchen-megan-thompson

I. LOVE. this kitchen.

Megan-thompson-cottage 

*and this room- great mix of functional, comfortable and classy.

TTN: you could do this with an unused closet space; take off the doors, put up some curtains, possibly a light fixture, and create a special nook.

SIMPLE COTTAGE:

CL 1

See the ghost chair in the background..??… Or DO you?? :)

Love the mix of materials in this room- subtle but plenty of texture.

CL3

CL4

CL6

CL7

TTN: Again, it's very subtle in color but the mix of textures keeps it from falling flat- and keeping it fabulous!

-love seeing that antique iron bench at the end of the bed rather than the standard bench. Sure, it's not as functional but it looks awesome.

COZY COTTAGE:

Another one of my favorites.. Haskell Harris' (previous) home. She's the associate editor of Garden and Gun- so it doesn't surprise me that her style is impeccable. She has since moved from this adorable cottage (to Charleston!) but its' too good to pass up...

Eclectic cottage:

Lee Kleinhelter, owner of the Atlanta store Pieces, has lived in (and designed) some fabulous homes over the years. I like this one in particular...
