Cottage Inspirations

Filed Under Inspiration | 20 comments


While out on one of my serendipitous adventures; (to come upon or find by accident) I found some of the sweetest cottages. Photographing on cloudy days, for me, are the best.  The colors pop and the contrasts are so much more vibrant.

Nestled up near our University were these sweet abodes. Even though we many only be dreaming of cottage living, I believe we can take inspiration from others and use bits and pieces of that dream to incorporate into our own home.

Step away from the typical and let your unique qualities shine through.



The rock walk way at this entrance was charming.


Look at these divine bushes!


Each one of these home are inviting… each owner just has to be creative and loves life– don’t you think? Also, look at each of the front doors and how artistic they are. 

Simply I was inspired. Check out  the Inspired Room and Hooked on Houses… these women’s blog help me get my creative side thinking!

TTFN! Claudia

    Oh what I wouldn’t give for a place that looked like the ones you posted above!  I’ve got a VERY boring colonial style house.  Yawn!

    They are all right out of a storybook…especially the first one.  I just love ’em!  Thanks for sharing them. Susan

    Susan—You know I think that first one should be in a movie; or fairy tale. One of my favorite movies visually was Nanny McVea– this couldve been one of those little cottages in that movie that went from dingie gray tones to vibrant colors, like purlple, pink and fantastic yellows!

    Thanks Susan for stopping by– i adore your blog!

    TTFN– Claudia

    Yes, you’re right! Owner’s of those cottages really love life whether it’s simple or not. You can see how they have outdoor.

    Hope you’re enjoying your simple and happy life this w/end as we all do as well as Melissa.

    Thanks for reminding me of Salt Lake City. We made several visits that and the memories are strong and good. The geography shock (from Atlanta) was severe. But every time we thought we’d seen it all we’d find more.

  9. Chie– thanks so much for stopping by– i was unable to leave you a comment on your blog, as I am not with Blogspot.

    Lovely blog!!

    I must have read too many fairy tales in my life…they are all sweet. Now if only I were Cinderalla and my husband was a handsome prince and not some manly man off at the driving range hitting golf balls on Sunday afternoon.
