Life’s better at the Beach: Top 5 Ways to bring cottage comfort into your home

There’s no doubt that a well-spent summer weekend is one spent at the cottage. Maybe it’s the rustic woods, that bowl of smooth, heart-shaped rocks you found, or the kitschy hand-me-downs; we believe one of the reasons that it is so easy to relax at the cottage, is the relaxed decor.
Below we’ve brought together a few ideas that would help you decorate with that cottage-y, beach feeling at home… without hanging a singing animatronic salmon above your mantle.
