Shabby Chic Style Cottage

It's easy to add all the colour you long for and still look great when the background is neutral. All the items you love simply pop out while the neutrals of the walls and floors hold everything harmoniously together. This home is full of flea market and garage sale finds. I wonder if you like this style. Come and see.

Wicker sofa and rustic and beach-theme accessories. I love the pillows and rug and the enamel painted pot for flowers.

Close up of the peonies. I'm sure blogger friend Jami would love them.

green sofa and red chest
Traditional furniture mix with painted pieces, granny's foot stool and the old door leaning against the wall is an unusual way to balance off the decor.

dining area
Metal chairs around a distressed harp-style table entered the scene. The window frame matches the door against the wall of the previous photograph.

flowers and tea cup on table
Ccolorful accessories in every room.

dishes in green shelf
Family pieces including the little-girl tea set on the top shelf mix with the homeowner's collection of red-and-white transferware.

  1. I love this! The color is wonderful and it seems very family friendly.

  2. Shame on me! I have been so busy wrapping up the school year with the kids I have been neglecting my friends! Thank you for the mention and of course I LOVE the peonies. I also love that living room.
