IT'S THE UNION OF FASCINATING FINDS!
If you were the bohemian child of foreign ambassadors who loved travel and adventure…if you love to go to a friend’s home decorated with warm colors, comfortable furniture and homey scents…if you like to accent your granny’s antiques with globes, maps and books about travel…if you like to pick up quirky things from nature and pair them with your flea market treasures…if you love old fashioned rooms with comfy overstuffed furnishings mixed with sculpture or art from cultures foreign to you…you’d be a lover of Ethnic Cottage Décor!
And ECD is so easy. You can use what you already have on hand! You may already be incorporating some elements of this versatile style into your home – without even know it. It’s mixing Safari or Global décor with Vintage or Shabby Chic. It’s combining World Market with French Country. Yet it’s so much more than eclectic. It’s the combination of the romance of your travels and journeys – real or imagined – with the warmth and charm of an old English cottage. It’s taking a kilim pillow, a pillow with a French quotation and uniting them with an oversized, cozy sofa. It’s as if you just came home from a fabulous vacation on another continent to your charming cabin and scattered your souvenirs about the room. The resulting assemblage of your mismatched treasures should always be comfortable and fascinating!
Ethnic Cottage Décor says RELAX, GET COMFORTABLE, and SHARE IN MY ADVENTURES.
I hope you’ll join me in enjoying these inspiring ECD rooms from Houzz (unless otherwise noted). See if you can't identify the Ethnic AND the Cottage!
