Welcome! I thought that, as we get to know each other, it would be nice for you to see where Cottage Lovely Home lives. Admit it, everyone loves to snoop through other peoples houses. I know I do. My tastes in home decor have changed a few times over the years. Small children were a big influence for a very long time, with four boys and even running a home daycare for a few years. And I look back on some of the colors I used to like and I can’t even imagine what I was thinking. Time has given me the luxury of evolving into my true authentic self and my home now fully reflects who I am.
I have lived in this house for about a year and a half and was lucky enough to be able to work with a wonderful builder from day one. To back up a bit, my now husband proposed to me on the land where this house now sits and we got married in this house, so it’s already full of love, but I am blessed to be able to have picked all the goodies that went into building it too. After years of looking through magazines and Pinterest and watching countless hours of HGTV, I had a very solid idea of what I wanted. Luckily my husband and I agree on just about everything!
So, my Cottage Lovely Home truly is my haven, designed to be simple and practical, and a place my hubby and I can live happily ever after. I decorate more for the seasons than the holidays, because my chronic illnesses don’t always allow me the energy to keep up with a lot of switching around of “stuff”. I am always trying to minimize and purge, finding that I just don’t need as many “things” as I used to. Less is better….definitely!! So I hope you have enjoyed this little peek at my little Cottage Lovely Home. So happy to have you visit my little piece of heaven!
