Cottage style furnishings create an enchanted and cheerful ambiance and are easy to work with. Begin with comfortable, casual pieces, especially those that take their inspiration from the garden, furniture painted with bird and tree motifs, or shabby chic “chippy” style furnishings. Cottage style allows you to mix new and old items, ornate and simple ones, and rare and inexpensive pieces, all pulled together to create a cozy place to relax, dream and live the life you love.

A single wooden plank piece, a simple woven rug, and garden cottage inspired wall art combine to create easygoing ambience. Whether you favor simple, modern light fixtures or elegant chandeliers, cottage style décor works beautifully. Greenery can be lush and natural, or simple and low-maintenance. A fascinating mirror elevates the look while adding light and imparting vintage flair. Don’t be afraid to play with the look! After all, cottage style furnishings are meant for enjoyment.
