Where Yesterdays Memories Become Tomorrows Treasures

Cottage Style Decorating For Your Homes by LilacsNDreams

Having the cottage style home is light, airy, fresh, fun, and original.  In today’s style they often incorporate soft palettes of greens, blues, yellows, shades of lilacs, and pinks too. Sometimes you may show things brightened with some brisk colors used as well. Using pastels for color, some pretty florals, and with some vintage home accessories gives your home that cozy cottage style.

Using lace handkerchiefs, some lace trims, fragrance candles, and those sweet smelling soaps, a comfortable rocking chair, wallpapers, fabrics are just so yummy in the home of cottage styles. Sometimes glassware will be used whether it is clear, or a slight coloring that sparkles in the light will be displayed. Visual some of those furniture slip covers that are inviting, some vintage style upholstery, and of course the layers of weathered paint. Gotta love that chippy paint.

A cottage style decorating can surface anywhere. Attitude is also what can make the house cottage. Depending on the house locatetion I sometimes have seen seaside, shells, and sailboats incorporated with the decor too.

Today’s expressions of cottage style is the thought of flea markets, using fresh flowers, vintage patterns, and a bit of romance with it too.  A warm welcoming feeling to all who visit. 

I love cottage style homes, and wish I had all that with our home.  A working progress. I admire the style when I see it in books, and by many who share their homes with all of us. Which style of home are you?
