Cottage life

I was going to write about my ideal cottage home but then I found my IDEAL cottage. This Oxfordshire cottage is an oldie, so some of you might have seen it, but I couldn't not share. The couple who own this beauty did a lot of the work themselves and they did it well. What I love most is the warmth and the incredible homey feeling. It's light but still keeps the English cottage feeling with period features and lovely details like the colours and furniture used. The whole renovation was done on a very tight budget which definitely makes it even more outstanding. These kind of properties make me want to move out in the English countryside.

  7. So gorgeous, light, and airy starting with the heart on the door to the open shelving floral backsplash! I agree with you, if I had a place like this I'd definitely live in the country! Happy Weekend! xo

  8. The British countryside is so pretty and this cottage fits right in. Even though I'm happy to be back in London, I dream of a cottage when I have a family.

  16. i've always had a thing for english cottages and english castles - so much history and they're absolutely gorgeous. wouldn't it be cool to have a home away from home in an english cottage?!
