Summary

Summary

Cottage-style decorating is the practice of creating the ambience of a 19th century English cottage. It captures the romance of a simple but delightful home located in a peaceful, country landscape. A cottage-style home is quaint and colourful, full of nooks and crannies; where the furnishings and accessories are truly unique and demonstrate ingenuity and charm. A cottage-style home is fascinating in its attention to detail. Handcrafted themes predominate, and the use of decorative fabric projects is striking. The most popular themes are those evoking a carefully cultivated, natural landscape. The cottage-style movement is one of the most popular trends in home decorating. It reflects a striking consumer movement toward lifestyle simplicity. This book teaches readers the key principles behind cottage-style decorating. It includes hundreds of idea photos demonstrating these principles in real-life practice, and gives instructions for more than two-dozen ingenious projects that anyone can build.
