Cottage Style Decorating Choices For Our Homes

Cottage Style Decorating Choices For Our Homes is light and airy, fresh and fun, and is completely clearly plainly an original too. A Look that is cozy, and comfortable. There are many styles for cottage decorating, and so many lovely ways of achieving that cottage style look too. Todays styles often incorporates the soft palettes of green, blue, yellow, pink, and yes shades of lilac too. Now, the many styles can also vary with the styles of colors which include country, beach, primitive, rustic, shabby, french, chic, white, pink, and modern. Combining some things together such as the pastel colors, some pretty florals, add some vintage home accessories can all give your home that cozy cottage style. 

A great thing about decorating with the cottage style is that there are no rules! So, I would suggest that you surround yourself with the things that you love, and are dear to you. 

Many things that you can mix doing the cottage style decorating. Lace handkerchiefs, lace trims, fragrance candles, and some sweet smelling soaps. You can easily mix some of those roses with some of them fun stripes, antique and new pieces, shabby with chic, and so on. Use some of them comfortable rocking chairs, some fabulous wallpaper, and there are many fabrics that are just yummy to use with your cottage style homes too. I know many think that cottage style is just white, white furniture, white paint, white picket fences, and of course roses. Keep in mind that there is so much more that you can do, mix, match, and achieve with this look. Have fun with it. 

Don't forget the weathered paint. Just love that chippy paint! Maybe throw some fabulous materials, or slip covers over some of the furniture, and love the vintage style upholstery all over again!

The cottage style decorating can surface anywhere, and the attitude can also be what makes the house cottage too. Sometimes the country look has been applied, and sometimes that wonderful beach look has also been applied as well. Whatever you choose it is a welcoming feeling to all who visit. 

I love cottage style homes. Enclosed you will see different pictures that came from better homes and garden, and some were by searching google for cottage style homes and decorating.
