Perfect English Cottage Reviews

Review by BeachBrights:

I get so use to looking at magazine, staged rooms, that I have forgotten what real homes look like. This book gives you real cottage. Perfect English Cottage is about the quintessential charming, cozy, country inspired home.

I love the size of this book (9″ x 11″). I actually chose this book based on the cover. It is so cheerful, cozy and bright. There are twice as many pictures as there are pages. The photographs are spectacular. The book is divided into 5 chapters; Romance, Character, Holiday, Simplicity and Elegance. At the end of each chapter there is a useful review picking up on ideas and also a comprehensive directory of sources. You can get the Perfect English Cottage look for yourself!

This book with it’s pictures and stories took me to a place that I want to have in my home all the time. I can picture the cobblestone lined streets, thatched roofs and roses around the door. This book makes a great addition to any home enthusiast’s collection!

Review by V. Sass:

This book is wonderful. I have already looked through it for hours. It is so nice and I will enjoy it for some time to come. Pretty photos. You can lose yourself in tit.

Waterside Cottages Reviews

Review by liz lichens:

I own an ungodly amount of decorating books and so I am very selective when it comes to adding another one to my collection. Waterside Cottages has now gone to the top of my list. It is a pure delight, filled with beautiful photos and helpful commentary. I highly recommend this book to any and all who long for an ocean cottage of their own or who are interested in seaside decorating.

Review by P. Carlson:

If you live on the water or wish you did, then this is the decorating book for you. Filled with gorgeous photography the book showcases 13 beautiful waterside homes. You will feel like you have sat down with the home owners as you read the stories about each home. I highly recommend this book!

English Cottage Interiors (Country Series)

A small rural church seats fewer than fifty, with a nave no more than 30 feet long. All the churches and chapels included in the book are still in use and can be visited by the growing number of enthusiasts who seek them out to enjoy their beauty and historical associations. A church such as St Enodoc in Cornwall, where Sir John Betjeman is buried, and St Michael de Rupe in Brentor, Devon, are prime examples of the type of church to be chosen. The book will be illustrated with photographs, line drawings and engravings and the text will be informative but not dry and include anecdotes and notes on the locality.

English Cottage Interiors (Country Series) Reviews

Review by sk raymond:

This is one of my favorite (non-fiction) books of all time. It is not your garden variety decorating book, and doesn’t pretend to be. In subject matter it is a bit more about architecture rather than interior decoration, with an emphasis on traditional. I think the text is excellent: witty, charming, down-to-earth, very informative and not long-winded or padded out. The photography is superb, giving excellent and well-lit views. Most of these rooms are decorated with some antiques, and the captions give you some information on these. If you love traditional cottage architecture, and English country decorating on the somewhat modest side — no fancy houses here, these are cottages — you might love this book as much as I. Highly recommended.

I bought this book last year and have looked through it many times. It is a true pictorial look at the REAL English cottages.

Vintage Cottages Reviews

Review by Gail Dedrick:

I had high expectations for this book. Had I realized it was written by the same author as Camps and Cottages, I may have thought twice before I bought it.

Just like its sister book, Camps and Cottages, Vintage Cottages features California cottages exclusively. That should have been reflected in the title or subtitle.

Secondly, the photography disappointed. Too many little heavily styled micro views of bookcases and table tops. I longed for wider shots to get a better sense of the whole house.

And last, the spaces feel artificial to me. A heavy stylist’s hand is evident in many of the photos. There is even an obvious product placement of the author’s other book, Camps and Cottages.

If you are interested in real vintage cottages, spaces where people really live, the book to get is The Cottage Book: Living Simple and Easy.

Review by Saturday’s Child of My Petite Maison:

We love this book. So many excellent ideas. Our family being animal people, absolutely love that this book is dedicated to Buddy who happened to be at the right place at the right time. The cottages are beautiful as well as the landscapes and the celebration of four-legged friends is a beautiful plus!

This is an item we accidentally happened upon due to recommendation from previous purchases. We will certainly integrate some of the ideas in our tiny cottage as well with much enthusiasm. Very nice reading indeed and beautiful photography. It sits with pride on our coffee table for when the need for inspiration hits.

Decorating Cottage Style

Cottages are all about warmth and coziness—and here’s a book as welcoming as the style it celebrates. These pages hold the key to achieving that wonderfully laid-back cottage look, with its pickets and porch railings, time-tested color combinations, faded fabrics, family photos, and treasured collections. The pictures speak volumes about how old and new, pretty and primitive, can work perfectly together to create a welcoming retreat in any type of home. And all the ideas and projects are simple yet beautiful—whether it’s artfully antiqued furniture, whimsical birdhouses, button pillows to scatter everywhere, or a glass-paned door table.

Decorating Cottage Style Reviews

Review by John Matlock:

A cottage brings to mind a more carefree style of living than does a house or condo. It brings back the thought of summers spent in small dwellings in the mountains or along the shore somewhere. And in those cottages, you were likely to find mismatched furniture, dishes, silverware; a random collection of art work hung on the wall; fabrics from god only knows where, or when, or even why; and the finish on the wooden pieces of the furniture may or may not have paint.

In this book Ms Scott shows what can be done with such low cost (or no cost) items in a way that would fit into nearly any home, and yes, even in a condo. She has broken the subject matter into four major areas: Cozy Cottage Colors, Nurturing Nature, Decorative Displays, and Decorative Furniture.

What I find most impressive about the book is the sense of color that comes through. The photography is well cone and the printing is excellent so that the woods, the fabrics, the glassware simply sparkles. While this type of decorating isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, her sense of style, color, and selection of individual items might make it fit your sense of style better than you think.

Review by Lin:

This is a beautifully photographed book written by NEVA SCOTT.This book is exactly as the title states.

The ideas are very do-able and easy to duplicate. Each chapter is filled with various insights into the making of a casual cottage-style home.

The author also gives “how-to” directions on duplicating some of the photographed ideas. Easy to follow,once again!

Since the author also owns a small boutique in Richland Washington, I hope to visit her store soon!

Country Living Cottage Style

Any home anywhere can achieve that cozy cottage feel. Just look at these color photos, brimming with surprising and inspiring ideas, and you’ll see the possibilities. This magnificent guide to cottage style salutes both traditional takes and fresh twists on this enduring look, and highlights those elements that truly make a room cottage style. The sheer number of variations on this laid-back approach is simply amazing, ranging from a California bungalow furnished in flea market finds to a New York apartment that seems straight out of the English countryside. Flip through the pages of images. Then use them as blueprints to copy precisely or as an idea manual of clever ways to apply unique colors, work with wallpaper patterns, or display collections. “Lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs throughout.”–Publishers Weekly.

Country Living Cottage Style Reviews

Review by K. Hemmer:

I knew from the cover this would be a book to indulge
my senses.The small house pictured with a white couch,
with a black embrodiered pillow,centered in the middle
along with a vintage candolier drew me in. Every page has a treat for the eyes.White panelled
walls,stone walls,and small white beadboard in the
bathroom’s.A beautiful blue fabric couch centered in
an old-fashioned three window setting.Simple but
elegant. It shows some new cottage rooms,some a combination:
Vintage with new,and some with more vintage style.
There is a smorgasbord for every type of decorating,
and true appeal for every age group.Some very talented
designers left their mark in the rooms. I keep going back to this book for ideas and just
pleasure.It helps me to relax. Some fascinating finds were the gothic arches for
book storing.Also,the crisp white porches with pillars,
that seem to be making a comeback.Hoorah!
Their were multiple bathroom choices allowing you
a different vision. The flea market style in this book was above what is
usually associated with the words flea market.
It is used successfully because the objects found have such
potential. At the end,are shown easy displays to copy if you
are starting out,and don’t quite know what to do to
achieve a personal look.

Review by :

This book is full of wonderful pictures and ideas for the cottage look. The pages are not overcrowded or overwhelming. It has become my favorite of the “Cottage Style” design books.
