A Gardener’s Guide to a Cottage Garden
Many people dream of roses climbing around a festival of colors, with the door facing the garden. The great thing is that you don’t have to go to the nation or have a cabin to make an attractive garden.
It is difficult to specify a cottage garden apartment and house. Most of us know you when we see you, but describing it is not the easiest thing to do. It has an old-fashioned look. In developing a cottage garden, the skill is to look at the boundaries as if they were never designed. There are very few options for creating flower beds, and they are all filled to the brim with plants.
The plants could be tricky that needed maintenance. Most are plants that have been developed for generations, such as aquilegia, hollyhocks, foxgloves, and primroses. Nowadays, hybrids are considered appropriate if they’re bold and bright.
Plants for a cottage garden apartment and house tend to be reported. Many are biennial and annual self-sowing, so the gardener doesn’t have to consider plants, they appear.
Part of the reason for using these older favorites, aside from their looks, is that they are generally less prone to pests and diseases and less common than many contemporary strains (which is why they have been around for a long time). In other words, you want to take care of it. A number of these plants, such as hollyhocks and lupins, have developed pests and diseases, making them less reliable than they were, although they can be propagated as useful plants with excellent effects.
Below are some examples. You will find Lupinus, Viola Pulmonaria candidum, Anemone x hybrida, Aquilegia vulgaris, Aster novae-angliae, Alcea Rosea and Geum rivale.
House decoration in country style
Can you live in an apartment or condominium but for a cottage in the country? With a few simple approaches to decorating in a country house style, you can quickly create a nourishing and elegant “urban hut” in the heart of the city. Here’s how:
1. Clutter cutter. Since urban areas are usually humble, the first step in converting your space into a comfortable and organized one is to clean up. Tour your home through a buyer’s eyes and get rid of anything you don’t love or use.
2. Clever containers. For example, I have a nice planter in my kitchen where I keep magazines in my space spoons and a picnic basket in my toilet where magazines are kept. Antique suitcases pile up on top of any work and can be used as a chic coffee table.
3. Color cozy. A new coat of beige or white on your walls and on the floor is a pleasant “envelope” to showcase your works of art and other collectibles and to make the room appear larger. If you want your home to feel like a warm cocoon, paint your walls a color that shows off your artwork.
4. Urban upholstery. When the time comes, try using a different favorite color for each piece or fabric. This allows you to move the furniture from room to room when you are tired of creating a cohesive arrangement and organizing the furniture.
5. Nice bed linen. Nothing says “cubicle” like lovely linens and lovely floral and padded pillows and throws draped on your sturdy colored upholstery. Now is the time to add some new pillowcases and a quilt or duvet cover to your mattress. Put a lace shower curtain or chenille in a couple of fresh towels in your toilet, along with a Kleenex box to get a few blows.
6. Window miracle. Sheer white fabric panels wrapped around your windows give the cabin an airy “summer look” or use floral curtains that match your pillows to add more color and cabin style.
7. Enjoyment of pictures. Check out the summer festivals and exhibitions for some excellent artwork that will appeal to particular cottage tastes. Also check out museums and shops, and even curbs where people leave things for garbage collection.
8. Greetings. Buy several stunning greeting cards with cottage landscapes of blooms, flowers, verandas, etc. and frame them in the same frames. Together with the cards, create a wall grouping for an impressive effect.
9. Architectural accessories. Hang a classic window adorned with pretty cottage wildflowers in front of your apartment window, and also use an outdated structural pillar topped with a bouquet for a posh appeal. Books can be held by an old bench or draped with a throw.
10. Plenty of planters. Who says you can’t have a backyard in town? Plant and display colorful greens and blooms like wicker baskets and watering cans in cabin-style containers. Or how about flower boxes filled with flowers? This is how you can develop your herb garden.
11. Great tables. Place a classic wooden peasant table in your dining room or around a wrought iron patio dining table and chairs. Cover your desk with china, napkins and placemats in a country style. Put a scent of flowers from the original container, picnic basket or urn in the center of your dining table.
12. Welcome home. For the finishing touch, paint the outside of your apartment door in your favorite color. If the landlord does not allow this, hang up a beautiful wreath of flowers or create a “hut vignette” with a small table with an urn made of bright flowers and green from the hallway next to your door.
By implementing some of the above country-style decorating suggestions, you will be creating your very chic yet cozy “urban cabin” for yourself, which states: “Welcome Home!”
