As the summer months approach, it's time to be inspired by a few divine country and cottage retreats.  Lounging by the lake and sitting by the bonfire are some of my favorite elements of cottage living.  While some may consider the cottage to be a slightly more retro hideout, great cottage home decor is not hard to find!
