Storybook Cottage ~ Charming Home Tour

Do you ever have trouble determining what your decorating style truly is?  I love both farmhouse and cottage style equally and keep going back and forth between the two. Sigh. I think my indecisiveness is based on the fact that there are many similar elements with both styles … like bead board, the color white, simple decorating elements, etc. Today’s tour showcases a storybook cottage, but you’ll find some farmhouse details while you’re looking around.

Another view of the kitchen shows the open concept floor plan. Plenty of windows let in natural light and really let the floors shine, showing off their slightly aged appearance. Love these floors!
