[white]Each year our little cottage plays host to guests from all over the world. It is small and simple, but we try to make it cosy and welcoming and an easy to use base for visiting Normandy and Paris. This is where my brocante guests stay, and where the winner of my giveaway will stay for a week next year … still time to enter that one ![white]
The cottage is small. It has a little sitting room downstairs, with a bathroom, kitchen and one small bedroom leading off. Upstairs there is a big bedroom with a double bed and two singles.[white]
[white]Downstairs the colours have been fairly monochromatic for the past two years, and I’m thinking that to inject some fresh colours would be good, especially as it is mostly used during the spring and summer months.[white]
[white]Here is the sitting room today. Chairs covered in ticking, simple linen curtains. Stone floor with a seagrass rug. But there is a lot of black, and that is what I would like to change. [white]
[white]I have to bear in mind, that our guests arrive with an image in their mind of how a french country cottage should look. I shall be keeping the neutral background of the white walls and simple linen curtains, and the stone floor isn’t going any where soon, so what do you think about these ideas?
