Cottage interior: Welcome back to my cozy cottage! Whether you’re a returning viewer or new to my channel, I’m excited to take you on a summer home tour of my main living spaces. While I don’t go overboard with seasonal decorations, the vibrant hydrangeas in full bloom and fresh cut flowers throughout the house have truly inspired me to bring the outdoors in. Join me as I walk you through the subtle yet charming touches I’ve added to create a warm and inviting summer ambiance.
Entryway and Living Space: Cottage interior
As we start our tour at the entry table just off the front door.You’ll notice the whimsical stems I’ve adorned the table with. A local shop named Expressions of the Home provided these delightful pieces, adding a pop of green that perfectly complements the summer season. In addition to a ceramic candlestick holder and an assortment of games and puzzles on a dresser-cum-entry table create a versatile space.
Moving into the heart of our home, you’ll find our family room where comfort meets functionality. An armoire hosts the TV, while my children’s play area adds an element of reality to the space. The recently acquired rug brings in shades of brown and blue. Contributing to a botanical and earthy feel that resonates with the season. Moreover a galvanized bucket filled with fresh hydrangeas atop the armoire adds a rustic touch.
Cozy Corners and Details: Cottage interio
My coffee table adorned with a wicker tray and a raised cake stand. Moreover accompanied by a fern greenery arrangement, serves as a picturesque focal point. The neutral linen texture of the pillow covers on the couches sets a year-round tone, with a blue floral block print pillow adding a touch of summer vibrancy. An elegant brass table lamp and a playful duck decoy complete the cozy corners.
Celebrating Summer with Mattress Firm: Cottage interior
Before we delve further, I’d like to extend my gratitude to our video sponsor, Mattress Firm. With our 10th wedding anniversary approaching, my husband and I decided to invest in a new mattress for a better night’s sleep. Mattress Firm offers a diverse range of mattresses, including popular brands like Tempur-Pedic and Sealy. We found our ideal match – the sleepies by Sealy Euro Top medium mattress 2.0, ensuring both comfort and quality.
Dining Area: Cottage interior

In addition to simple patriotic elements, like antique-style American flags, add a touch of summer festivity. Vintage plates and a shutter adorn the shiplap walls, providing an elegant backdrop for family meals. Vintage soup tureens filled with fern stems and charming vintage accents complete the summer look.
Herb Garden and Kitchen
My kitchen serves as the heart of our home, and this summer, I’ve added an herb garden just outside the kitchen sink window. Basil, rosemary, thyme, and oregano are just a reach away, ensuring fresh ingredients for our meals. The coffee bar area remains a favorite, while farm-fresh eggs and a sun hat add a touch of rustic charm.
Office Space and Personal Touches: Cottage interior

The space is adorned with personal touches, such as a summer bucket list sign crafted with my children. Creating a personalized and inviting atmosphere.
Parlor: A Room of Tranquility
