From the Author

Decorate to turn any home into a vacation-style getaway.
If you want to get away--every day--this is a must-have decorating book. "Cottage" is defined as a usually small vacation home, but this inspiring and practical decorating book gives you the tools and inspiration to make your own cottage dreams materialize--right now and wherever you live. What's your dream? A cottage by the water? A lace-curtained farmhouse? A little house in the big woods? Or how about a room that surrounds you with the fresh colors of a garden walk--all year long? Well, you can have it! Better Homes and Gardens COTTAGE STYLE includes more than 200 lush color photos to get your imagination going. In addition to a room-by-room decorating guide, special sections break cottage style into the dreamy basics--fabrics, furnishings, colors, walls, windows, and floors--that you can mix and match to create your own personal decorating schemes. Along the way, you'll enjoy and learn from cottage decorating makeover tips and simple project ideas. Why wait to own or visit that lake house or cabin you've been dreaming of when you can decorate to turn your home into a getaway cottage you can enjoy every day? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Caringer's book is definitely not a "buy a blue pillow and place it on the floral couch next to the white lamp" type of book; rather, the photographs and one-line comments give you sensible ideas on how to achieve the look you desire on your own. Whether you want to buy everything new, incorporate your existing furniture into this look, or experiment with garage sale finds, this books shows you how to do it. Everything from floors to ceilings, bathrooms to porches, as well as how to use accent pieces is covered in this book. I would also recommend it for singles/couples just starting out as it illustrates how to put together ordinary items to create an extraordinary environment.

Now that the holidays are over and spring is around the corner, I'm so ready to redecorate and turn my house into the kind of getaway that the author describes. This book is about my style -- cozy, comfy and unpretentious. I love it! Cottage Style is going to help me create the weekend beach house of my dreams right where I live!! This is the perfect book for springtime redecorating.

this book grows on you; if you ignore styles that aren't yours and look instead at placement and room design it will give you great ideas. The photos are very nice too.
