The Queen was on TV recently...the movie that is. Again I noticed the decor. Though the palace's decor regally "over the top," I've always adored the traditional English cottage look!
Some basic elements are wood floors, chintz, timeless well-worn furniture, free standing cabinets, lace curtains and dark rough beams....
None of us live in palaces (do we?), but we are happy with even a modest home that is warm, welcoming and cozy. Those three words describe the traditional English cottage look to me.
Is anyone living with English Cottage decor? Photo from top: Better Homes and Gardens; antique chintz teapot; English Cabbage Rose; Staffordshire Porcelain Dogs (I have two); English Chintz and English Garden.
