Romantic Cottage Style
With Valentine's Day approaching, it is the perfect time of the year to talk about Romantic Cottage Style. I thought I would take you on a tour of the Romantic Rose Boutique so you can see how beautifully these gals showcase their custom decorated cottage furnishings.
Artist Judy, really pays attention to details. That is why her furnishings and accessories stand out from the rest. How beautiful Judy freshens up old chairs, tables, desks giving them a new life!
Cottage Pink Gives New Life To Old Chairs
Above, the old pressed back chair has lovely spindles and a seat cushion made form an old quilt.
The second photo shows a vintage chair with a shield back. The detail in the chair is what sets this piece apart form the rest. Judy has distressed the wood so some of the original patina comes through.
Soft, Vintage, Romantic
Painted vintage furnishings of soft pinks and creams, lots of accessories with hand painted roses or florals and pretty textiles are what my friends at Romantic Rose Boutique specialize in. You will see some of their custom work in my book, Hot Cottage Collectibles
Custom Painted Roses
Make Book Case So Special
The bookcase shown her looks like it has been lined with vintage wallpaper, but guess what...that is hand painted flowers on a cream painted background. It is simply darling.
