The simple, unique and interestingly appointed cottage is a place for escape, ?lled with art, books, color, scents, sounds, textures and memories.
It is a repository for keepsakes and dreams that help bridge past with future. While today technology forces us to think only in terms of productivity, leanness and speed, many of us have begun to pull in the reins, re-explore our goals, challenge our assumptions and seek a lifestyle that captures a strong sense of coherence and tradition. Central to that new approach is a renewed sense of "home."
See how cottage owners are breaking with tradition and lending a new look to their humble spaces. Differing in style, color, regional taste and liveliness, the cottages showcased are tied together by a delicate thread that honors tradition while looking forward to a lifestyle that is uncluttered, unhurried and re?ective of rugged, unapologetic individuality. As you develop your own special place-your own "vintage cottage," may you capture a new idea from those who have graciously opened their doors to these unique homes.
