Cottage decor is all about comfort and flexibility. If you’re a fan, bringing the cottage home is simpler than you might think. Below, we’ve rounded up some fresh and creative cottage patio ideas to help inspire your own.

There are few ridged rules or norms when it comes to cottage style because, historically, cottages are a place where you can kick back and relax. It seems only appropriate that cottage décor reflects that laid back attitude—as well as the distinct personalities of those who inhabit the space. In 2020, the laid back interiors we would usually find in a cottage found their way into year-round homes. Elements of cottage style infiltrated living rooms, kitchens and bedrooms, injecting warmth and unpretentious charm into these spaces. This year, we’re seeing that same charm outdoors. Bring cottage style into your outdoor space with these ten ideas.
