I am happy to share my Top Ten Cottage Home Decor Ideas with you.
It’s that time of year for reflection and reassessing my blog, style, and life. I like to refresh my home, sometimes daily. Are you that way, too?
This past year has been no exception. My style is rustic, vintage, thrifted and somewhat classic. I like vintage books and fabrics, rusty metal, chippy paint, torn edges and tufted upholstery.
These are all a part of my Top Ten Cottage Home Decor Ideas featured on my blog this past year.
Based on blog viewership, I always find it interesting when a blog post is in the top ten over and over. I guess it means that I am “doing something right”. Although, I have always just decorated in and how I like. Whether it is conventional or on the artsy side of decorating. If I like it, I do it.
I think that’s how it should be. Whether you mix lace with a rusty spring or black paint with a vintage bath tub…if you like it. Do it. It is YOUR home, YOUR space and it should be both appealing and comfortable for you.
(That’s my thought process anyway)
I used a pallet to make my cottage sign. I share the tutorial here.
My master bedroom is rarely photographed because the lighting is so bad. But, when I do ANY blog post showing my master bedroom, it’s a big hit. It’s such a compliment to me.
With just a few simple things like string, feathers, dried eucalyptus leaves and hot glue, you can create a cottage style banner to use in your home all year long. I originally made this for my Fall decorating, but I still have it up for my home décor. AND, people love it.
If you know me very well, you KNOW that I love to make book page crafts. This vintage crinkly book page wreath is a personal favorite. And one of my followers faves, too. It took very little time to make and I love the unique look.
I love my grandma’s Franciscan Ware Desert Rose dishes. I was gifted them after she passed away. I don’t necessarily like the typical reds, oranges and greens for Fall or Thanksgiving. So, I thought, “Hmmm…what the heck, let me try these dishes for a Pink Thanksgiving tablescape.” Lucky for me, I loved it and so did my followers!
Like I said in the beginning, I like combining rustic and chippy goodness in my home décor, including Christmas. I was amazed at how this Christmas centerpiece made from a barnwood box was a follower and Pinterest favorite.
And, lastly my Christmas home tour was a fun, creative project. I took my time and tried to create an intentional Christmas cottage feel in my Las Vegas condo in the desert. I think I succeeded with all the blog traffic I have received since this blog post was published.
Thanks for making my Top Ten Cottage Home Decor Ideas a great success for me this year. It has been a pleasure to create a cottage feel in our tiny condo. I look forward to next year with great hope and excitement, as we are moving within the next few weeks.
I will get to share a whole new perspective and style in our new place. The creative juices are flowing…
Take care and make it a wonderful 2019.
