what is beautiful to you?

Home Interior style is definitely personal. What might appeal to one may not appeal to another. There are so many ‘Cottage’ styles that I wondered, what features are signature to each style and what makes it appealing. Finding your Cottage style is fun…perhaps you’re like me and you like to mix Cottage styles.

Let’s see what’s distinguishing about each style:


lish Cottage is distinguished by antiques, overstuffed chairs, cozy spots for tea.





French Cottage uses the vibrant Provencal colors with a touch of rustic style such as the use of painted furniture and roosters.



Shabby Chic
blends the perfectly imperfect, hardwood floors, white walls, flea market finds and soft pastel colors.




Romantic Cottage is covered in floral touches, pinks and feminine touches.

Country Cottage -Farmhouse is a charming reminiscence of going to grandma’s farmhouse filled with rustic elements, churns, benches and blends of wood and rich colors.



Beach Cottage  inspired by the tranquil colors of the seaside with touches of driftwood, shells and comfy, relaxed furniture.
brings the outdoors inside using the range of colors from the garden, plants, and trellises giving one the sense of the indoors melding with the outdoors.


Prairie Cottage reminds one of the homemade furniture, blue and white dishes, lanterns and such used by homesteaders – a light, comfy style.


Swedish Country

light colors of white, blue and grey in an uncluttered style accentuated by the use of architectural details.

I am sure there are more Cottage Styles – 
such as Camp cottage -the possibilities seem endless!
My friend Maria has a gorgeous Cottage Home –
Throughout her home is a lot of French Country
with touches of Country Cottage. I shared her home with you
I think it is perfectly fine to blend elements of each cottage style in your
personal décor, to flow from one style to another. To me, the
basic element is what appeals to you. It is what you like
– your style. What makes you smile, what makes you comfortable –
your home is the ultimate, welcoming reflection of you.
