Cottages, Cottages, Cottages.........

I think I'll do a series on cottages this week since it's that time of year again.

Normally, this long weekend in May is the unofficial start of summer in the Maritimes.  However, this year it was unusually cold (with snow in some parts) and instead of getting our gardens started and opening up the cottages, all of that has been put on hold for now.

Nevertheless, it has me thinking about cottages and I thought I would share some with you.

A few years ago, Coastal Living featured a group of small cottages in Maine that were privately owned and beginning to look run down.  So, a group of 16 interior designers were hired to refurbish the cottages and prepare them for summer rentals.

Each cottage is quite small and each interior is completely different........I thought it was a brilliant idea and fun to see what each designer was able to come up with in such a small space.

Today's cottage is called 'Sleepy Hollow' and was designed by popular Maine designer, Tracey Rapisardi.  Tracey uses pastel colors, likes to re-cycle and upcycle, loves florals and painted furniture and produced a delightful, cosy cottage anyone would enjoy!

Check back tomorrow to see another of these charming cottages!

Have a great day!
