I just watched The Holiday...a feel good movie. They had the most enchanting cottage in it. I had to rewatch more than a few scenes to see all the details inside.
It amazes me how they can stuff so much stuff in a little space and look wonderful. Furniture was pushed up next to other pieces, full bookshelves surrounded the rooms and there were stacks of wonderful "things" on tables, mantle, etc. I know this is a "set", but still, the small comfy corners and fabrics/colors used made it all wonderful.
And, I want that house. Or at least be able to do some of the things done in the rooms.
Part of my fascination with the cottage is so much of current decorating seems to lean towards minimulist. And we keep sharing how to get rid of things. This little cottage definitely didn't fall in either aspect.
Has anyone seen this movie and do you have rooms decorated like the cottage? If you have...what does it take to do this without all looking cluttered?
