I love a cottage style home and try to create that feeling in my own home.
i look for white and neutral pieces to decorate with and love to bring in natural elements.
it keeps the home light, airy and refreshing and it also makes it is easy to decorate for any season or holiday.
Bringing in these two white outdoor folding chairs into my living room create a cottage feel.
The two French vintage hand loomed monogrammed pillows that are resting on my chairs are considered one of those 'it was meant to be purchases' since they have mine and my daughters initials on them.
When ever i find a piece of art i like it always has a hefty price tag to go along with it. For an alternative piece of art i hung an old window dressed with a sticker from the ceiling.
i bought the white chain from a local hardware store.
i like the simplicity of just having the window displayed on my mantel, for now. Maybe i'll get around to doing a summer mantle before summer is gone.
The day we moved in i went around and took pictures of everything so i could share before and after pictures.
Be prepared, it's not pretty!
I do dream of a different kind of flooring but for now this is what it is and i'm appreciative of all the things i do have!
Have a wonderful week my friends!
until next time,
