Out in the little cottage
I have what you might call a little place to play.
The cottage is a bit more rustic than in the house
and whole lot more cottage
than French cottage.
But with painted floors and open beams and little nooks and crannies
it is a charmer.
And though it doesn’t get much seasonal decor unless it is for a special occasion
it does get just a bit of a sprinkle of autumn
And today- since half the cottage is being painted currently-
we are taking a very.tiny. peek at the dining room.
Which is really more of a dining area in the main part of the cottage
where the kitchen, living room, dining and bathroom are.
So- the cottage dining room is more like a little spot in the corner.
It has a crusty old chippy table with chairs
and that big old antique cupboard that I brought home a few years ago.
So I mostly focused on adding just a couple seasonal touches
A centerpiece on the table that is the simplest ever
and a few bits in the china cabinet.
Have I mentioned that I am obsessed with simple?
And fresh plants like cabbage and kale for autumn?
And when I picked up these pumpkins
I walked right past a couple of these beauties
and they went right into the cart.
I was originally thinking front porch- and they will likely make their way out there
before too long
but I am loving one of them in this urn as a natural centerpiece.
Keep it simple- always a good motto.
For a touch of autumn color without orange-
I added a blue tartan throw to the stool.
I am obsessed with how just one thing can be the perfect amount of charming.
And if you saw my post yesterday- you saw the delicious pumpkin butter brie en croute recipe
and a peek at the dining room. See more HERE
In the cupboard- just a few baby boos & chunky boos
and natural wreaths are perfect for adding a sprinkle of seasonal touches.
And by the drawers a few pots stacked up with wheat tucked inside
finishes the look.
All in all- simple rustic and cottage out in the guest cottage.
A much different feeling than I tend to have in the house where it is a bit more romantic.
Don’t miss any of the amazing dining rooms that my farmhouse blogger friends are sharing today:
And come back by on Thursday morning for the first look at autumn appearing inside our home.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
