The Cottage: Well Loved Furnishings for Vintage Country Cottage Decor During the Holidays

Introducing The Cottage: Well Loved Furnishings

The Cottage, located in Leesburg, Virginia is owned by Linda Campbell and Ann Vaugh, two very creative and accomplished women who found each other at a Multi-dealer shop and decided to open their own place.

Linda, once a sports journalist has also been a florist and caterer. Her love now is The Cottage and she brings an artisitc flair to her shop along with her business partner Ann.

The Cottage Offers a Warm Country Cottage Style

What I like most about The Cottage is the warm, updated Country and Vintage look which both Linda and Ann achieve so well. These gals have really mastered the art of cotta ge decorating. Their attractive room settings highlight lots of textiles, mixing comfy linens with a variety of compatible patterns and color schemes.
Checks, polka dots, stripes, florals are used with each other creating a warm and whimsical relaxed look.

A New Twist to Traditional

Ann and Linda love color and as you see in these photos, they enjoy combining bold colors together. Notice how striking the red and black look paired with each other. While red and green are typical colors used at the holiday time, you will find that The Cottage always adds a new twist to traditional styles.

During the holiday time, The Cottage is loaded with vintage Country Cottage ite ms. Vintage style furnishings, beddings, kitchen-wares etc. are showcased with original antiques and collectibles in many room settings throughout their quaint historic downtown 18th Century cottage store. Linda and Ann sum up how to describe their store: "We area all about, fun, funky, thinking outside the box vintage". You will agree....visit them on line at
