In my dreams my cottage is almost always white. It is a bit shabby with painted furniture but adorned with beautiful vintage chandeliers. It is comfortable enough that you feel you can plop down anywhere and read a book or take an afternoon nap, yet elegant enough to dress for dinner. It is home to vintage finds and hunted treasures but nothing to dear. A place where friends and family can gather for drinks around an old farm table lit up by a candelabra as the sun sinks low in the sky.
That is the vision I hope to one day turn into a reality. Until then I will continue to dream and be inspired by some of the lovely images below from Coastal Living.
