COTTAGE DESIGN- EUROPEAN FRENCH- FABULOUS!


We are on vacation, 80 miles outside of Atlanta, Georgia, at the AMAZING REYNOLD'S PLANTATION.  The cottage where we are staying is quite COZY, VERY French European and, DELIGHTFUL!  I took some pictures of our cottage to show you why I ADORE this design.  VERY old world and SO inviting!  Impeccable and well thought out spaces INSPIRE me!  I hope you can get a feel for this wonderful space.

SO southern!  Blue hydrangea bushes in full bloom right on the edge of the east porch.  I LOVE the cream painted pillars and wood work around this porch!  GLORIOUS!

This den is VERY cozy and I have LOVED sitting here and rocking our 8 week old baby and,  visiting with my family.   You cannot top a cozy and comfortable space in front of a stone fire place.  AWESOME!

Don't you always wish you could duplicate a wonderful and comfortable hotel bed?  This bed is plush and wonderful!  Goose down pillows, 600 thread count sheets and, a down comforter.......I can barely pull myself out of it each morning!  You can achieve this comfort in your own bedroom.....purchase good quality goose down pillows,  a set of 600+ thread sheets and, a down comforter.  You will be able to achieve this
SAME look and, most important, COMFORT!

Great looking duck prints in the master bedroom.

A wonderful crewel coverlet....folded neatly at the end of the bed.  Crewel is TIMELESS and, I love the
texture of  the design!  This pattern adds a lot of interest.

AMAZING crown moldings over the door ways and accenting the ceilings!  GORGEOUS!

FANTASTIC and HEAVY doors are hung throughout this cottage.....this door is the main entrance and, I LOVE how heavy it feels when you push it open or close it.  GREAT QUALITY!  TIMELESS!

Great post! That bed looks fantastic!! I recently stayed in a room just like the one in your photos and after having such a great nights sleep, I just had to duplicate the experience in my own home! I went out and bought the 600 count sheets, a very luxurious down comforter and some Goose Down Pillows and lets just say I will never lose another night of sleep ever again! It's great!
