Today's cottage style incorporates a
mixture of stripes, checks and florals, everywhere, in wallpapers and
fabrics. The creative mix of fabrics is an important
element to cottage decoration--- piles of pillows, vintage linens,
floral curtains. These items are sometimes found at flea markets and
estate sales, and are often one of a kind and hand made. Finding just
the right ones is not easy, but once you do, they are a quick and
easy way to freshen up your home.
