Cottage Love #71

I spent a much needed day home gardening, cleaning and relaxing. I am also happy to have time to squeeze in a blog post on a Sunday. I came across this fabulous backyard before and after today and ended up linking to the entire home. It's adorable....

I'm in the midst of my own back yard renovation. I did not have a peaceful spot to relax or dine outdoors in my current home. I've added a new deck (thanks, Dad!) which I plan stain a driftwood color and am in the process of creating a seating area, garden, and potted floral/herb arrangements. I've also purchased outdoor furniture and am refinishing a set of vintage dining chairs I scored years ago on the side of the road. I'll be sharing some progress shots over the next month on Instagram, if you'd like to follow along. 

I truly believe that smaller homes can be just as beautiful and functional as larger homes. This was primarily the reason I began the "Cottage Love" series ten years ago. I'm thrilled to add designer, Rosa Beltran's bungalow to the collection. She beautifully mixes warm materials and finishes (like that amazing brick floor) with clean architectural lines and functional storage. See more, "before" photos in Better Homes and Gardens.
