5 EASY WAYS TO MAKE A COTTAGE YOUR OWN
1. PICK PAINT
This cabin came with some furniture and accessories, such as picture frames, but most did not suit the homeowners’ calm vision. Rather than replacing them, they simply painted them white.
2. REIMAGINE IT
Old paddleboat oars become nostalgic art when hung on the wall, while a bedroom dresser stands in for a living room console.
3. LOVE WHAT YOU HAVE
The homeowners liked many of the existing features, such as the cabin’s exterior, so they left them unchanged.
4. NURTURE NATURE
Elements from the property hold pride of place inside, including the trunks of birch trees that had to be cut down.
5. PEPPER WITH PERSONALITY
Whimsical light fixtures, toss cushions and framed prints make the interior special and homey.
