COTTAGE STYLE IS A COMFORTABLE STYLE

Being comfortable in your home is what is most important, and for me that means cottage style. It is a style that develops over time as you gather together elements.

These are a few of the elements I have collected over time to help give my home a cottage feel. They are all things that combine to give me a feeling of serenity and comfort.

Do you have a particular style that makes you feel comfortable?

  3. I love your style too....anything vintage and cozy. I like baskets and books and lots of different lighting. I even still have a string of lights around a basket that comes on with a timer in the evenings. Enjoy your afternoon my friend. Hugs, Diane

  6. I love the cottage style. I am more traditional here because of the style of the house-but if we downsize and move I would do a cottage look. I also love English cottage. xo Diana

  12. These are beautiful photos, Laura. Many years ago, I lived in a Victorian cottage and I loved that period style. This post brings back happy memories of that home. I have popped over from Over 40 Blogging World - what a fab community!

  15. I don't have one particular style; I like a mix of styles. I mix vintage and cottage with a little modern. Hope you are having a beautiful day!

  16. I loved this point of view! So often it seems that bloggers are so concerned about style that they forget comfort! I put comfortable above anything else, and like you, I usually find Cottage style comfrotable.
