I still yearn for Cottage Living! It has been such a tough economy for shelter magazine. I think we have lost about 9 of them in the last 3 years! That has helped me a little with storage!
I completely agree. Cottage Living remains as my all time favorite. Nothing has replaced it.
Somehow I never saw the gems in this one... These are amazing. sigh.
I love the last bedroom. Yes, the decor magazines are getting scarce...
Cottage Living WAS the best, wasn't it? One of these pictures has inspired me to paint my pig gold. He's not popping in his current silver form.
I miss it too - that was definitely my favorite mag! The first image is one of my all-time favorites!
I LOVED that magazine. This post is a perfect example of why! Thanks for the memories!
Yes! I loved that magazine and this post is a perfect example of why! Thanks for the memories.
I have never read the magazine, but that first picture is gorgeous!
I loooved Cottage Living. Thankfully I had a subscription and I saved all of my old copies.
keep all those at hand when I ask you to design a room (or two) for me! I LOVE all of those images! I can't believe with photos like that, the magazine is no longer in publication.
I can still buy special issues in stores. I bought one just last month called "Fresh Ideas." Old images (I think) reworked into new content.
Happy Friday! Gorgeous images!
i was so sad when my subscription to cottage living stopped coming...and even more sad, when in it's place, i started receiving "wine spectator". (i don't drink...so, not a publication i find useful.)have a fantastic weekend.
Thanks for the walk down memory lane, man I loved that mag. Hopefully, someone will revive that aesthetic mix sometime in the future.
I agree, Cottage Living was the best!!
I also miss cottage living - such a great mix of styles without ever feeling over the top eclectic. Love that second image!
I loved Cottage Living too and still don't feel like I've filled the void created when it went under!
Cottage Living was one of my monthly reads. I miss it too!!! It would be great if they all came back....it's just not the same with all the new online mags. Though I will take what I can get...which is never enough magazines!
I enjoyed Cottage Living too. We live in a small house and I've always been attracted to 'cozy and warm' vs. 'grand'. Cottage Living presented so many beautifully decorated small spaces and I have lots of Cottage Living photos in my inspiration journal.
I never got to experience cottage living firsthand. So sad. So many of these are great! Really love the oversized chandeliers and fretwork mirrors behind the bed. Yum :)
Beautiful inspirational pics! :))))
