English Cottage Style
We talk a lot about English cottage style homes here. What is an English cottage home? It's one that has a steeply pitched roof and cross-gables, a large chimney, small-paned casement windows, and arched (or half-round) doorways with ornate hardware and exterior lighting. Here you'll find lots of photos and examples of English cottage style exteriors & interiors featuring coffered ceilings, hardwood floors (often painted), and other English cottage style home accents.
