simple is beautiful

Monday Inspiration | A 660 Square Foot Cottage

Monday, June 5, 2017

I have to admit that I have a thing for small houses.  So when I saw this charming cottage recently in Southern Living, I was immediately drawn in.  Small houses seem like the ideal opportunity to create a perfect space.  That is if you can be disciplined enough to part with a lot of "stuff".  My theory is to use one paint color throughout.  Have continuous hardwoods everywhere except the bathrooms where I would go with a simple penny or marble tile. Stick with one type of window treatment - linen or bamboo roman shades would be my pick.  Limit pattern to very small pieces, ie. foot stool, pillow, etc. Only decorate with things that are functional that you really love.  Sounds easy enough.  Could you do it?  I think I could, but we would need a guest house :).
