Design Book Library ~ The Perfect Country Cottage & A Giveaway

The giveaway is today’s Design Book Library and you can see how to enter to win at the end of this post.


Today’s book from the Design Book Library is The Perfect Country Cottage by Bill Laws.  Since this book is a giveaway, I wanted to include the chapter titles for you.

Chapter 1  First Impressions

Chapter 2  Heart of the Home

Chapter 3  Rooms for Living

Chapter 4 Sleeping Quarters

Chapter 5 The Cottage Garden

Chapter 6  A Country Harvest


There are quite a few pictures and most of the writing is of a “teaching” style, which takes you from the features of an old cottage to the materials that make it up, both inside and out.



This book is more about a very country life as opposed to what you might think of as English Country or Cottage decorating.  Just typing up this post, I could already think of a handful of bloggers that might be interested in this book.  In case you were wondering, the book is a hardcover.




Having said that and shared some of the pictures from the book, to enter for a chance to win, please state that you would like to be entered to win in your comment.  Not everyone who comments will want the book, so if you don’t say that you want it, I am not going to count your comment in the giveaway.




The giveaway will be open to residents of the U.S., because I’m paying for shipping.  I will keep the giveaway open until Wednesday, August 20th, and will announce the winner in next week’s Design Book Library post.  At that time, I will also have another book I talk about that will be up for a giveaway.

Hi Kathy,

Oh wow. Um, I would LOVE to win this book. What a generous giveaway.

I am trying sooooo hard to get my gardens to look "Olde English Country Cottage Garden." It is my deepest wish to live in a little cottage like some of those, omg I about squealed seeing that thatched roof. I think I am channeling my inner Gael, it is so special and a dream come true if I ever could.

Thank you! Have a fabulous weekend.
