How do you know if cottage style decor is for you?
If you tend to use slipcovers to cover scratches and hide some stains on your sofa rather than buying a new one or upholstering it yourself.
If you love to paint to make your wall or your wrought iron bed more appealing and looking fresh. Usually you use white color or varying hues of tan and cream. You are interested too in distressing furniture to make it worn-out looking but very functional and comfortable
If you are not bothered using mismatched furniture as long as they look charming to you. Also, if you tend to re-use different items for other purposes, making old stuff to be new again
If you love to use pots, baskets and open shelving and use decor from the flea market or vintage shop.
If you make your front porch welcoming, inviting and cheerful which denotes a very relaxed and comfortable living.
All of these characterize the cottage style living which prioritizes low maintenance and casual living. Cottage style is for anyone who wants simplicity and laid back lifestyle.
