Timeless Decor

It's Friday! 
Are you getting your Fall weather finally?  Or perhaps some Winter weather?  It is -2 C or 27.6 F here in Manitoba today, I nearly froze on my walk yesterday, I will have to dress a little more warmly today.

I was looking through some of my Inspiration images yesterday and came across these.  I  collected them several years ago, but to me they are as fresh today as they were then.

This is what I was loving back then.








Pink Cottage



Cottage by the Sea







Midwest Living





As you can see, I have always loved the Cottage decorating style and I am still loving it.
Has your style changed through the years or are you still loving the same things?  Of course trends influence us over the years, but has your style remained the same?

Have a lovely day!

It was actually chilly here this morning. Caught me by surprise. But the temp is already climbing up into the 70's. I can see why you saved these images. Beautiful spaces. I don't know what my style is. Traditional, I think. Sometimes I change with the fads but always come back to traditional, eclectic. Love to mix and match. I love cottage but have never managed to have a complete cottage look throughout the house. Maybe some day...
Happy Friday friend!

What beautiful pics! I'm nearly drooling over here =) I, too, love the cottage style. It's beautiful yet casual and not stuffy, and is usually very bright and cheery. I tried to do the dark warm colors, but I just couldn't get used to it - always come back to white!

Hi Cindy!

Your inspirtation pics are great. My favorites are the first two. My tastes have changed alot. I love the cottage look as well, yet I have an appreciation for a modern look, too. I'm conflicted!

Have a great weekend!
Hugs,
Nancy

Love the images,well all except that blue kitchen... timeless is the only way to go, I do love change though. What is my style, hummmmm, I guess I will always be a bit country with a "Old World" feel. I love French Country and Cottage Style , a little of it all , so I guess that is "Old World". What do you think? Cindy, what is my style, you tell me!

It is timeless! You just cannot go wrong with white decor.

Thank you Cindy for stopping by my blog last week. I've been under a "spell" and busy working and have not had time to visit everyone. So glad I stopped by for some "timeless inspiration."

Ciao,
Suzanne

Beautiful inspiration pics Cindy. My taste has changed just a little tiny bit...mostly in furniture color...When I first got married I was into cherry wood...now most of the pieces I own are painted! Love, love, love painted furniture. But I think the cottage style has always been my favorite. Hope you had a wonderful weekend my dear friend and wishing you a fantabulous new week! Happy 1st day of November.

Hugs and Kisses,
♥Ana
