HAVE YOU SEEN "THE GARDENER'S COTTAGE"?

I can't remember who found who - but I'm so happy to have found and have gotten to know Janet, of the blog, The Gardener's Cottage.  I knew I really liked her when I read this post about aging gracefully. I just like her. And then she asked me to help her with finding some pillows for her front room...her beautiful front room.

Here is the BEFORE:

 beautiful, right? 

and the AFTER:



All we did was add these Designer's Guild Cassandra Moss pillows, and she changed out her patterned drapes for white linen drapes, but I love these pillows on her sofa. I also suggested she add some small emerald or navy blue velvet pillows for her side chairs just to add a little color.

But you need to see the other rooms in her home. It is SO charming - just like her!

Isn't this a charming cottage? I love the cleanliness and simplicity of every room. It's classy, beautiful, timeless, and comfortable. Do you think she would do a house swap for a week? Her home looks so welcoming and relaxing - I want to spend the weekend there!
