Literary Friday: Country Living Cottage Style

Friday, December 9, 2011

This week I read Country Living Cottage Style by Marie Proeller Hueston. Basically it is a book with some favorite cottage homes that have appeared in the pages of Cottage Living Magazine over the years as well as other books published by Country Living.  I think Hueston did a great job choosing which homes and rooms to feature in the book, and I thought it was a delight to read.  I knew with a cover like that it must be a special book!  What I like most about this book is that it features several home tours, including this one:

I love this dining room from a California cottage!  It is timeless.  Most of the homes featured do have that quality about them.  Because many of the homes have been featured previously, I would suggest you check it out from the library first if you own several books published by Country Living.  If you don't, order it!  This one is a keeper!

I also read Clockwork Angel {again} because the second book in Cassandra Clare's Infernal Devices series, Clockwork Prince, was released this week.  I have been very excited about this book, and I cannot wait to start reading it this weekend.

Until next time...

Happy reading!

  4. Very pretty dining room, but our family certainly wouldn't fit in there. The mixture of fibers/colors works well in this setting.
