Cottage Kitchen

    A spring green center island makes food prep and serving a breeze. Saddle-style stools are perfect to sit on and grab quick lunches and snacks. Low-maintenance hickory hardwood floors stand up to foot traffic, spills, and sandy feet.

Pure and Simple

    This living room is a study in white, with photos, baskets, and a rug adding texture and subtle contrast. Fresh flowers are a must-have in every cottage-style room.

All-American Appeal

    Combining rosy-red gingham, cool blue mattress-ticking, and crisp white walls, this cottage living room exudes patriotism. Chicken-topped ceramic canisters and a lamp fashioned from an old cream pail keep the look full of surprises.

Gently Aged

    Distressed white finishes act as instant equalizers in this cottage dining room, making a hefty table, spindle-back chairs, a glass-front sideboard, and a once-gold chandelier coexist harmoniously.

Bright Dinette

    A 1950s-era laminate table and vinyl chairs set this cottage kitchen's vivid color scheme, which includes white, turquoise, and red. The overall look is one of fun and whimsy.

Rugged Elegance

    This cottage breakfast room has eclectic style. Antique chairs pull up to a table covered in rustic burlap. Silver and crystal serving pieces add sophistication and glam.

Layered Bedding

    In a cottage guest room, a painted iron bed is piled high with red, white, and blue linens. The homeowners layered a floral dust ruffle, cornflower blue and white sheets, and red gingham comforter with a vintage quilt and plaid and striped pillow cases. An embroidered "Home Sweet Home" pillow tops off the look.

Beachy Blue

    A chandelier dripping with crystals and an arched window add formal flair in this cottage living room, where gingham slipcovers, flea-market finds, and a huge shell collection abound.

Old-Fashioned Bath

    A claw-foot bathtub gives this cottage bathroom vintage style. A freestanding mirror, antique fan, and stacks of freshly laundered white towels provide additional comfort.

Black and White

    Bright white beaded board softens a dark and modern vanity. Identical sinks, mirrors, and light fixtures add balance to this country cottage bathroom.

French Front Porch

    An upholstered French loveseat beckons guests to linger on this cottage front porch, which overflows with containers of foxglove and delphinium.

Traditional Country Style

    This dining room hutch offers abundant storage options for linens, silverware, and dishes. The table is covered in a bright white tablecloth with red gingham place mats. Vintage floral sheets become delightful chair covers.

Natural Setting

    This cottage kitchen features open shelving and glass-front cabinetry that stow dinnerware and showcase selected pieces.

Shabby Chic

    Distressed doors form the base of the platform bed in this cottage-style bedroom. A worn and weathered antique mantel, topped with large-scale letters, serves as an impromptu headboard.

Sweet Dreams

    In a mattress-striped guest room, a new gingham shade tops an antique jug lamp while a reproduction alarm clock hangs from an iron headboard. Missing dresser drawer-pulls were replaced by knotted fabric.

Country Comfort

    A checkered quilt is used as a ceiling-high headboard in this master bedroom. A curvaceous distressed Swedish antique positioned at the foot of the bed and a dangling chandelier give the room a casually elegant air.

Luxury and Comfort

    Floral sheets shirred on an antique screen and mounted to the wall make a blossoming headboard. Chocolate brown, warm gold, and white with touches of rose is the warm and rich color palette in this cottage bedroom.

Cozy Bath

    An antique mirror and curvy sconces bring a vintage feel this bathroom, where the homeowner installed hexagon-tile flooring and a pedestal sink to evoke another era.

Inviting Entrance

    This dynamic entry combines an old-fashioned coat rack, a simple Craftsman-style plant stand, and horizontally oriented beaded board.

Cottage Solutions

    Hinged shutters framed with molding look a like vintage storage cabinet in this cozy dining room when closed, but the piece actually masks an unattractive air conditioner.

Wicker Works

    This texture-filled space has a cottage look with white bookshelves and accessories mixed with a few pale neutrals. Wicker chairs and the rock fireplace add interest to a neutral rug and sedate sofa.

Simply Perfect

    In a look that's straight out of an upscale home furnishing catalog, the white beaded board wall, pedestal sink, and silver sconces spell cottage style with a hint of elegance.

Bathroom Chic

    Make bathtime lots of fun with a vintage claw-foot tub, wire basket towel holders, pale wall color, and a shelf unit that's rustic and distressed.

All Curves

    This room is all about pretty, feminine details, including a curvy headboard and romantic chandelier. A plethora of pillows, rustic twigs, and floral details add a cottage feel.
