Cottage Decorating 101

Let's just say I'm artist, not a decorator so I don't really know any of the "decorator" rules, like this accent goes with that style and this period furniture goes with that drapery finial. I only know what I like; sometimes I even get it right although the chairs may be mid century modern paired with a baroque mirror and a Queen Anne coffee table. Over the last couple of years we've been decorating our little cottage with vintage finds and personal handmade items; we find they add that personal touch.

Here are a few pictures:

I adore Magazines, especially vintage decorating magazines!

Oh, and an artichoke too in case they get hungry.
 Well, that's it for this week folks, I have a lot on my plate at the moment. I will hopefully be posting on Monday as we start the re-decorating of our bedroom in the style of "Cabin Chic".

Have a great week.
