Well Appointed Cottage
I have been working furiously to revamp the small house on our farm that we had rented for years, with the goal of renting it out to weekenders visiting the area. My inspiration was Iris’s (Kate Winslet) cottage in the Nancy Meyers (Somethings Gotta Give, It’s Complicated) written and directed film The Holiday. Most interior design bloggers favor the sleek interior of the Cameron Diaz character’s California house in the film, but I love the cluttered and snug, well appointed, country cottage.
My Caretaker’s Cottage is not there yet, but I want to transport some of that rural, Surrey atmosphere to my little abode.
