Cottage Style

Muskoka Living Interiors: Tradewinds
Cottages portray coastal decor with blues and whites, exposed beams and cathedral ceilings - a year round bliss.
Growing up with a cottage and visiting other cottages with friends has always been a summer tradition.
A new favourite of mine, is cottaging in the winter, filled with snow sports, and cuddling up by the fire.
While my cottage was not accessible in the winter, I enjoyed a few times up at other cottages in the winter.
The beautiful landscape of snow through the window, while keeping warm by the fire.

I have a subscription to Style at Home magazine, and the August edition was focused on pretty cottages.
One company that stood out was Muskoka Living.
The Muskoka cottage area is where I grew up visiting, and these designs are some of my favourites.

Big tables are a key element at a cottage for entertaining - especially since I love cooking and baking, as well as having friends and family to visit.
I grew up with a cottage with painted wood panels, so maybe it's just me, but I feel like this makes it seem more like a cottage. I think that this gives more of a coastal feel.
The lantern style lights hanging over the table give a more rustic feel, while the silver and lights inside are more chic. I love these lights.
Also, I love how the table is accented with blue cups, which is a colour associated with the coastal style.

One of my favourite things that my boyfriends parent's cottage has is exposed beams on the ceiling, I love rustic feel of this.
Another favourite is this fireplace, with the barn door styled cupboard to hide the tv.

I love when cottages are big and open, with cathedral ceilings and a lot of windows to bring in light during the day.


Another key item in a cottage is a bath tub, which my cottage did not have as a kid.
Cottages are for relaxing, so this is really adds to the relaxation factor, especially in the winters to warm up!
