Some of us, not everyone has at some point dreamed of a cottage in the country. We've driven past them and thought it might be nice. Pretty houses that have overgrown flower gardens, dogs and cats asleep while bees buzz around the summer flowers in full bloom.
Cottages by their very nature don't have to nice and neat, don't have to have coordinated furniture actually the more colours and old furniture the better. Furniture can be painted whatever colour you want, cushions can be thrown on small sofas and vases can be filled with home frown flowers.
