Shabby Chic Cottage

I wanted you to see the interior of this cottage that I posted about last week.......hand built by a woman as her private getaway in upstate New York.

It is a perfect example of a shabby chic cottage......recycled materials, everything painted white and feminine details such as the chandeliers, gauzy curtains, slipcovers, old bottles used as vases, pink roses, fresh flowers, silver teapot, red rubber boots, books recovered in white to match the decor......what fun she must have had putting this whole look together with found windows, corbels, window boxes and all.

A pure delight and very inventive!  What woman would not love such a getaway?
