There's a feeling of being in a cozy country home where life is just a little more relaxed, and perhaps a bit sweeter.

For example, rustic exposed beams and wood flooring capture that warm, farmhouse appeal and the clean, uncluttered neutral color scheme is typical cozy cottage. Functional built-ins are representative of a cottage space, helping to achieve that visually uncluttered appearance. This room is large, but intimate as well with a comfortable sitting area and inviting dining table. A guest immediately feels at home without worrying they shouldn't touch anything or sit anywhere for fear of ruining a precious item. These furnishings only get better with age and use.

The sand colored rug and shades of blue grays and white make me think of a cool, foggy day at the seaside. Cottage style furniture and decor is adaptable to many different styles and can be combined in a flattering way. The result will always appear fresh, bright, welcoming and utterly charming!
