There are three images that the words "Country Cottage" bring to mind.
There are many different home styles that fit the image of a country cottage, but the one thing associated with all of them is that they feel welcoming.
If you've been lucky enough to buy a home that has the ambience of a country cottage, there are now many things that you can do to round out the picture, from interior design in keeping with the architecture to planting a traditional cottage garden.
It's a common experience among creative people that they do some of their best thinking in the bathroom. This is because although bathroom use is for showering, shaving, applying makeup and so on, it's also where you relax. How much you relax is governed by your bathroom's ambience. If you’re tired of walking into your dated bathroom and dream of a change, I’ve got bathroom design ideas for you that are inexpensive and simple to do.
Lighting is probably the most important upgrade you can make to your bathroom. Lighting and color have a profound effect on our mood and upgrading them is a worthwhile investment. Changing your lighting is not difficult or expensive to do, but makes your bathroom look fresher and larger.
Older lighting fixtures and fluorescent lighting cast unattractive shadows and create odd and unattractive skin tones. Changing the fixtures, either to something ultra modern or to an attractive retro look can have an amazing effect on how you feel in your bathroom. If changing the fixtures isn’t an option, you can just upgrade your bathroom with some of the new fluorescent bulbs that are similar in color warmth to the light cast on a bright, sunny day.
I'm pleased to be bringing you some ideas that you can incorporate into your own interior home design. I hope that you find them useful and you are welcome to leave me any comments or suggestions you may have in the Comments box below.

Red is the symbolic color of love, romance and passion.
High-octane orange-tinted tones make you feel energised and alive, while subtler purplish shades such as burgundy and maroon can create a cosy mood and inject a regal touch to a room.
