Little Cottage In The Woods

After all the colour of the past couple of posts, I thought I would share this...

I loved the shabby look a long time ago, well before it became as popular as it is now. I used to buy the overseas magazines and drool over the pictures. I went a bit mad myself, decorating in this style...but then everyone seemed to be doing it, and me, being me, didn't want to just be like everyone else. So my tastes changed into a more eclectic style of decorating.

Don't get me wrong, I still love the shabby look, and my family room is mostly white, but colour can't help creeping back in, in the way of cushions and accessories. I just think I would go mad with all that white!

Anyway, I came upon this girl, who has built this little house on her property in the is so pretty, and I think every girl should have one in their backyard...what do you reckon? Go here to have a look at her pretty blog -


  1. What a pretty cottage....I would love to have one of my own.....but it would turn into a Faerie House instead of a Victorian Cottage......hee hee

  2. Beautiful..I always enjoy seeing everyone's touch of magic..they all weild it in their own way! A very enchanting place! thankyou for the link...fabulous!

  3. Soooo to pay her a visit...first must wish you a Happy 4th of July!!!! xoxo

    Oh...I still like the shabby look only upscaled a bit with some modern pieces.

  4. My husband and I visit the Catskills every opportunity we get. It's just magical, a perfect place for this beautiful cottage XO
