As Liz Bauwens and Alexandra Campbell show, these are features that can be recreated in all types of home. Every room can be given its own taste of rustic charm: the kitchen made warm and comfortable, the bedroom soft and romantic, the living room natural and tranquil.With chapters looking at ways of bringing the country into a city home, creating a relaxed kitchen, and choosing colors and fabrics, "Easy Cottage Style" shows you how easily traditional styles can be transformed to enhance relaxed modern living.- Learn how to give your interiors comfort and warmth with fabrics, colors and materials normally found far from the city.- Includes easy-to-follow projects for country-inspired furnishings and decorations.- Exquisite photography by Simon Brown

Overall, not a good cottage design book. The front cover of Easy Cottage Style looked promising, but many rooms featured were just shabby with unappealing room contents. There are a few 'make it yourself' ideas in the back of the book (e.g. how to make a cork hotpad; cover a bar chair seat and similar). They are hit and miss but might give someone an idea for their place.
