Cottage style is inviting and welcoming and always captures the heart of the home. Every room has its own identity--from the entry and the family room to the bedrooms and the back porch. A home's flow and sense of history wrapped in a feeling of perfect harmony allow for a simple lifestyle. Each room has its own purpose, with details as comforting as fresh bedding crisp from the wash or a lovely toile fabric with trimmed edges for interest, resulting in the ideal ambience for holiday celebrations and entertaining. Meaningful objects, personal collections, and family treasures all gathered in the home add charm to every occasion. A little history is always welcome, making a home feel well-loved, combining layers of various styles and curated items. Character shines from one-of-a-kind furniture pieces, combining the new with the antique and giving a unique feel to each home.
Twenty classic cottages, whether on the coast or within the city, are filled with the spirit of each season of the year. In this book, the four seasons--spring, summer, autumn, and winter--are presented, and each featured cottage brings seasonal flair and highlights its place in the country.
Spring Cottages burst with new approaches to color and fresh style, and seasonal nods to florals abound. From sun-drenched entryways to gardens overflowing with life, each space sets the stage for a new season of life.
Summer Homes hugging the coastline exhibit the very best in waterside living. Lakehouse porches welcome warm rays, and bedroom havens provide the ideal getaway during the summer months.
Autumn Mountain vistas provide stunning backdrops for garden cottages dressed in rich fall color. Cozy spots for enjoying the season encourage relaxation and gatherings with family and friends.
Winter Holiday cottages and warm fireplaces share season's greetings with snowy views. Perfect for hosting intimate parties or welcoming loved ones, greenery-draped entryways and twinkling tablescapes sing with the spirit of winter
Whether influenced by the colors of the season or its surroundings, each dwelling reflects the style and essence of its location. And each personal story carries the characteristics of those who live inside, opening up a lifestyle that is truly home sweet home to those within.
