What is it about the word 'COTTAGE' that we love?
I looked up the meaning of the word 'cottage' and depending on what you are looking for...here are are a few of the definitions.
A small, single storied house especially in the country.
Exudes charm and comfort
(I think so)
Has comfort and warmth
(comfort yes... warmth...depends on the season!
I think the word 'cottage' has different meanings for different people.
In my case...I live in a small single storied home in the country. Not everyone lives in such a small home or lives in the country...but yet to them their home is a 'cottage'.
These cottage style bedrooms EXUDE Charm and Comfort
don't you think?
I'm seeing a pattern here in my choices of photo's.
It seems I really like white or light coloured bedding and light airy rooms!
(Our guest room)
I'm working on our guest bedroom. I haven't done a thing to it other than paint before we moved in, everything is what we had before and it's in here because it needed a place to go if I was going to keep it.
I've got to paint the wicker bench at the end of the bed and I'm trying to decide if I should paint some other things...like the natural pine and green dresser...the wicker and metal chair and the hardest decision to make is whether to paint that little vanity with mirror. It's dark oak. I'm REALLY having trouble with that one.
I WILL spray paint that floor lamp base next to the bed white.
Anyway...I think I've asked before but I would REALLY like your imput on what you would do if it was YOUR room.
Don't be shy...just say what you think. Give me your ideas.
Here's a few more photo's of the room.
So there you have it.
I hope you've enjoyed looking at those first cottage bedrooms.
I look forward to seeing what your ideas are for our guest room and I hope you have a WONDERFUL Thursday.
