About Us

Creating a distinctive cottage environment looks easy and effortless.  Colors and patterns intermingle.  Comfort is key and the personality of the homeowner shines through.  In fact, no two cottage homes are exactly alike.  There are few – if any – rules to follow and no prepackaged rooms of furnishings and decor.  But, creating a relaxed cottage environment is not so easy after all.  We know!  We’ve been doing it for fourteen years.

Cottage Home, on the coast of Southern Maine, has built a reputation as the place to go for cottage style furnishings and accessories.  The company has expanded its boundaries on the Internet and built a loyal following from coast to coast – helping to furnish and design everything from beach houses to mountain lodges – from rustic retreats to urban ‘cottages’.

We can help you to furnish an entire house, a single room, or to find just the right piece you’re been searching for.

We’ve also built a reputation as the ‘place to go’ for advice on choosing the right furniture for you.  It’s the practical considerations that are the foundation for creating a cottage environment that works.  And, because we customize many of our tables and other furnishings, we know that the right proportions and measurements are critical.

What’s the right size for a sofa, table or chair for me?  What’s the standard width of a dining chair and how many will fit comfortably around my table? How do I design a furniture layout for the dimensions of my room?  How can I mix fabrics, colors, and patterns so that it doesn’t look too busy?  What size area rug should I use with my sofa?  These are just a few of the many questions we’re asked on a daily basis.

We stay up-to-date on the latest trends. We scan magazines, books and blogs for ideas and design solutions.  And now, we’ve decided to bring it all together in one place as a reference guide for creating your own distinctive cottage home.

As this blog grows, you’ll see our take on cottage style design – along with the ‘best of the best’ culled from the pages of design publications and books.  We’ll provide reference guides and practical suggestions for creating a cottage environment that reflects you and your lifestyle.  We’ll spark your imagination with ‘Inspiration Boards’, ‘Color Boards’, and ‘Rooms to Love.’   We’re hoping our blog will help you to answer questions on everything from choosing the right style and color palette, to designing a layout and selecting furnishings that fit.

We hope you have as much fun exploring our blog as we are having creating it!

Thanks for reading,

    I would like you to please help me in decorating my newly purchased home in Canyon Lake Texas. I have never been good at decorating but I saw your website and love what colors you have in different rooms. My kitchen is orange salmon colored and my newly purchased sofas are indigo blue. Could I hire someone to help me do an interior analysis of my home for decorating?

  2. I Love your site! Would you consider having a category specifically for artwork? Please visit my website, CapeCodWatercolor.com to see some samples of my paintings. I think my style would be a great fit with yours! Thanks so much, Sue

    I love what I see. My husband and I are getting ready to begin construction on our home sometime this month. Our new house is going to be in Ocean City, Maryland. Would love to work with your company to get suggestions on what I should select for flooring, paint and the 10 or so new pieces of furniture I will need to purchase from you. In addition rugs, and lighting that will all blend with what we have . I have made a wish list on the website of items that I like.

    Happy New Year!

    Hope to hear from you soon,

    Nona Clubb

    Hi,

    I live on an island in Washington which limits my local resources for decorating! I want to redecorate my master bedroom and I’m having difficulty finding coordinating fabrics for duvet cover, pillow shams, bedskirt and rugs. I like some of your palettes and I’m wondering if it’s possible to get your assistance on picking fabrics and colors. Do you sell just fabric and can you send samples?

    Thanks,

    Marsha Morgan
