Perfect English Cottage

Perfect English Cottage explores 18 inspirational homes that celebrate the best of cottage style in the English countryside. The book explores the decorating and design solutions that make the cottages as attractive inside as out, as well as practical and comfortable to live in. Bestselling author Ros Byam Shaw takes a fresh look at this perennially appealing style, which she divides into five chapters: Character, Holiday, Romance, Simplicity, and Elegance. The featured homes are incredibly varied, from a tiny house with exposed beams to a pared-down Georgian gem, to a picture-perfect cottage with roses over the door—and plenty more adorning the interior. Each section ends with a Get The Look page devoted to ideas for recreating the style in your own home.

This book is simply wonderful. Shows stunning photos of English Cottage decorating, and has already given me several ideas for what I would do in my own home. Very authentic and exceptional. Can't put it down!!!

Beautiful book. I enjoy the many photos of English cottage life.

Loved the book as I have all of Shaw's.

I guess I'm not that big on recent English décor.
