Cottage style or some prefer shabby chic. Everyone loves this type of decorating. Not trendy and always timeless. Small simple houses filled with natural light and a romantic aura. Furniture never matches and is chippy, painted, distressed and carefree. Rooms are cozy and relaxing. The lake or seaside. Our local artist, Betsy Havira, was kind enough to provide the necessary accent pieces or "dessert" in cottage decorating. Her seashore paintings are perfect. Very soothing and colorful. And they are on sale.
