Recently I was faced with the task/fun of finding gorgeous bits and pieces to turn a recently refurbished country cottage into a ‘home’. As pleased as I was with the initial result … it still lacked something.
I had a flash and remembered the Country Trader … normally known for stylish furniture both old and new. They now have lots and lots of interesting glassware, silver, tortoiseshell, baskets and candles … affordable accessories for the home and table.
Just as you walk in it resembles a fabulous bazaar. I was thrilled to find decorative jugs, platters and baskets for the kitchen … in particular, I loved the vintage linen napkins. For the coffee table and bookshelves I fell upon lovely old sets of books, rustic tins and candlesticks.
With everything now in place, I must say the cottage is looking much less like a house and more a home … full of character and interest. It was a lot of fun searching for and eventually finding just the right pieces !!
