Are you searching for ideas to make your home the coziest it could be?
You’re in luck.

Q&A With Mickie
Love the aesthetic you’ve created, how would you describe your style?
My style is definitely Cottage Farmhouse.
What’s the biggest challenge you’ve faced during your decorating journey?
My biggest challenge is SPACE. Our cottage is only 850 sf so I would say making all the furniture pieces fit in without feeling crowded.
I use large furniture pieces with lots of cabinets and drawers for storage.
That’s a must in a tiny cottage.
Shop the Look: Small Rustic Desk
You have a lot of antique furniture, do you have a store that you know you won’t leave without buying something from?
I actually have a few favorite antique shops that I like to stop in and I rarely leave empty handed lol!
Shop the Look: Waffle Throw Blanket
Of all the rooms in your house, which is your favorite and why?
That’s a tough one, I love them all but I think my living room because it’s comfy & cozy and just relaxing.
It’s where you lay back on the sofa with your feet up and watch a good show and just unwind.
What advice do you have for people who haven’t yet found their style?
I would say always stay true to the architecture of your home.
If your home is modern then stick with modern decor, if it’s a cottage or farmhouse then choose that type of decor style such as vintage mirrors, architectural salvage, farmhouse sinks and lots of vintage chippy pieces.
