Cottage: English Country Style (The Library of Interior Detai

$14.10 USD

In Cottage, Elizabeth Hilliard explores the history of the cottage as romantic idyll, an ideal pursued through centuries by kings and princes and equally popular today. The cottage is a compact, unpretentious home with universal appeal. Low, beamed ceilings; floors of wood, stone, or brick covered with natural matting and rugs; walls richly colored with traditional  whitewash or bright modern paints; books and projects; flowers; furniture of every sort from battered rustic pieces to apparently grand dressers that may not be quite what they seem -- all these elements add up to a warm, welcoming style which is as enduring as it is irresistible.
