There are some words in the English language that have been made to invoke a particular feeling. “Cottage” is one of those words. Immediately you imagine steaming tea in a floral teacup beside a warm fire with a sleeping cat on your lap. It’s such a cozy word.
While life’s luck may prevent you from the purring kitty, you can indeed have the cozy cottage with tea and fireside chair. You may be able to get your hands on an old cottage with the charm and comfort built-in or you may have to create it yourself.
Either way, a cottage is one of the most charming house styles to live in. Here’s what you need to know about them and how to get one for yourself.
