Everyone needs to have some way by which they can escape the world. For some, this is a specific activity, such as gardening or painting. Other people use a particular place as their escape, such as a favorite place on the beach, that perfect spot under a tree at a local park, or a quiet corner. Of course, country cottages are not exactly cheap, and even if you are able to buy (or rent) one, you still have the challenge of finding some appropriate country cottage furniture. This can be difficult at times, but the great thing about country cottage furniture is that it is, by its very nature, flexible, meaning your options are wide open.
When you set out to find country cottage furniture, it is a good idea to set a baseline for yourself. That is to say, decide on a sort of theme that you want to weave through your room, and use that as your basic concept. This can be nearly anything, such as a specific color, a pattern, even a shape that appeals to you.
The tricky part of this process, though, is remembering not to force yourself to stick too closely to your decided theme. One of the characteristics of cottage furniture, you see, is that it does not quite fit together the same way as the furniture of most other styles. The degree to which you express this in your room is entirely up to you, but the cottage style has a certain amount of disassociation built into it which gives the form its eclectic flair.
