Casual Cottage

Vintage & relaxed, Cottage style (also referred to as Country style) often incorporates distressed wood furniture, quilted fabrics & re-purposed or restored antiques. This charming, down home style is characterized by comfortable furnishings, fresh colors, and classic, familiar accents like floral patterns & bead board and emulates a simpler, friendlier time gone by.

Cottage style is often blended with specific decorative accessory styles to create more distinct and personal design styles such as
