Cottage Style Decor Inspiration: Lovely Italian Cottage

When you let yourself dream of
the perfect place to hang your hat,
I wonder what comes to mind…

I must say my thoughts tend to waver.
Maybe a rustic place far from
like this cozy Italian cottage?

This office area seems sufficient.

I can feel stress melting away.

Look at this tiny window.
Tell me you don’t wanna marry it.

I might make a few minor
changes above and below.


Loving the light the photographer captures. 


Would you, could you,
live within these walls?

Peace to you right where you are.

    As long as there was an espresso maker in the kitchen I would gladly hide away from civilization in this delightful vine covered cottage. (I'd probably want to update the bathroom, too)! Happy Monday, Michele! XO

    I agree with I Dream Of, if there is an espresso.maker it would be perfect. It would be nice if there was a bathtub too.

    very peaceful. I'm going to be trading big for small very soon so I find this post reassuring. I just stopped by to wish you a happy thanksgiving. Hope the boys are home already. Love to your Mom and Sis. Also I loved your last post. I want one of those Madonna necklaces… she is my personal favorite.

    that's a bedroom-in-the-eaves to write poetry in…..or perhaps a very long sonnet on a summer's afternoon.

    where has summer gone?

    tell us it shall return…
