Cottage Style

The "Cottage Style" is a sub-category of the "Country Style." The "true" definition of "Cottage" is "a small vacation home." Yet, as homeowners are scaling down, for lifestyle or economic reasons, the Cottage Style is being used to build and decorate primary dwellings.

Additional terms, that can be used to describe the Cottage Style are: "rustic, fresh, happy, springy, charming, informal, intimate, romantic, delightful, and cozy."

"The Cottage Home Network" is a site that is devoted entirely to Cottage Homes. On this site you can: (1) browse through a photo gallery of recently built cottages with a listing of architects working in the cottage-style; (2) visit a library of books and cottage-lifestyle magazines, and; (3) view a "living room" filled with leads to sources of furnishings, architectural fittings and hardware items.

(2) The New Cottage Home, by Jim Tolpin, 5 stars out of 5 from amazon.com, $20.97

(3) Mary Emmerling's American Country..., 5 stars out of 5 from amazon.com, $17.50
Synopsis: An exploration of the charm of 24 country and seaside cottages from Key West to California. Emmerling and Greene ventured across America to see what cottage dwellers are up to today. Everywhere they found decorating ideas and housekeeping solutions…"
