How to Create a Beautiful Cottage Style Home with Loads of European Elegance
Isn’t this cabinet amazing?
That was the cabinet that was in my dining room before we did the remodel.
It was oak and outdated.
We moved it out to the cottage, gave it a great paint job and it’s perfect for the cottage.
Doesn’t it look great here?
I love adding a combination of vintage and new items.
By adding layers, it gives it the ‘styled over the years’ look, instead looking brand new.
I love creamy white walls.
It adds warmth, as well as brightness.
Alabaster by Sherwin Williams is my favorite color.
I have used it in every room of my house.
See what I mean, It’s a great color.
I love using Vintage decor to add interest, age and texture.
Rustic elegance is so warm and welcoming, you will love it too.
Doesn’t this bookcase look amazing?
I love using vintage books in my decor.
Most of these books cost less that $10.
It’s a lot of bang for your buck.
And the hunt for vintage decor, is just so much fun.
PRO TIP: Adding greenery, whether real or faux, adds so much life to a space.
Again, I used both vintage and new items to keep this bookcase interesing.
With just a few simple steps, you can turn your home into the cozy, cottage style retreat of your dreams!
