Country Cottage Style

Home and Garden

I love country cottage style.

I love it not only because we live in the country... in a farm cottage...on a farm... but because it is such a warm and comfortable style
that suits us.

                                    It seems to fit into just about any  
lifestyle whether you live in the city
a small town or the country.

It's the kind of decorating style that makes you
feel at home as soon as you enter the house.

It's nostalgia.

Home and Garden

It seems to recall a more slower paced
kind of life where the family
comes home to a home cooked
meal and sits around the
table and talks about
the events of
the day.
And visitors
are encouraged to
pull up a chair while another
plate is brought to the table.

A country cottage kitchen is one that is comfortable to work in. It's unpretentious. It's a kitchen where you
feel like getting your hands in flour
and kneading dough.
It's the smell of home made bread baking in the oven
and fresh chocolate chip cookies waiting
in the cookie jar.

A country cottage home is a place where you can put
your feet up and relax after a good meal on 
a cozy couch or chair and talk
about your day or just
read a good

This style of home is cozy and unassuming.
It's a home that combines the past with the present and shows our love of family and what's important to us.

So enjoy expressing your personality and showing what the
definition of home means to you.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

I can`t believe how similar our tastes are !especially the kitchen- I love mixing old and new together- I think your home should be a reflection of who you are- filled with happy memories ,keepsakes yet comfortable and homely !

Oh Maura,
You are so spot on, in your description of Country decor. I have always admired that style...even growing up in a major city. Thanks for sharing all these beautiful images.

Maura, how very warm and inviting. Building our home 28 years ago, I am still happy with my choice of warm pine cupboards, black slate sink and countertops. I never tire of my country look.

Verde Farm said...

Maura, this is my favorite style of all. Country cottage is all the things you said above. It makes me feel "happy." I LOVE picture number two but I really love all of them. Such a great post.
Hugs, Amy :)

Red Gate Farm said...

Maura, just love the country cottage "look". Picture number four and that table, bench and chairs... well, I'd love to have that for sure. Number two, I don't know what that pink thing on the wall is but i thing I need one!

As I was looking through the photos I was thinking "All that white!". I would have to paint everything muddy-dog colours hee hee
I'm glad you showed them, as I am thinking about my kitchen refurb, once the builders have finished.
