I love the warm, inviting, and comfortable feel of a country themed home, and there are so many ways you bring that atmosphere into your home through decor.
My favorite theme, the one I'm excitedly collecting ideas for, is a country cottage theme. 

Although I would love to have my entire home decorated in the country cottage theme, it's not exactly a good idea with so many little ones. Light colors and sticky fingers don't exactly go well together. So, for me, the kitchen is a safe place to enjoy that same simplicity and nature, rather than create the stress of having the theme throughout my entire living space. 

When seeking out items for the country cottage theme, look for base colors that are light such as pale yellows, white, light pinks and blues. To accessorize, find items that are wood, burlap, wrought iron, and wicker. Many varieties of decor pieces using these materials are readily available in many stores. I like the look of burlap lined baskets that I can use to hide some of my pantry items. The baskets serve as a dual purpose, hiding my stuff and looking quite cute! I've found these at flea markets and yard sales, cleaned them up and lined them to make inexpensive, dual purpose decor.



I found this cute display of a burlap bag that was used to hold fake lemons, but I want to use it for my fake bread. I looked around on Amazon for Burlap Bags and found the perfect bags to pull this off, and it helps that they're in a set of four for only $15.95. These bags are much like potato sacks that also keep the items fresh that you store in them. 






I'm in the market for a really nice wrought iron pot rack. I bought one a several years ago from Pier1, but lost it in a move. I loved that pot rack! Nevertheless, I've been looking for a replacement since then, and I can't seem to find anything that comes close to the one I had. I found a decent one for less on Amazon that was half the original price! This cutie wants to hang on my wall for only $54 with free shipping. 



There are so many ideas for the cottage country kitchen that I'm always looking around for inspiration. Here, I've included a very handy shopping guide filled with some very nice selections that were put together by Beanster Goods on Etsy. I was very honored that my biscuit skillet was included in her awesome country chic collection. Maybe you'll find something you love!
