If you're a fan of Cottage Living, be sure to check out their new special issue, "Fresh Ideas". The issue is filled with tips on decorating and furnishing cottages and small spaces. The fresh ideas include painting patterned floors, displaying collections en masse, and making the garden an extension of the home. Many of Cottage Living's tips could be applied to large homes or small apartments. Of course the tips are all helpful, but what I enjoyed most was the compilation of the magazine's top photos.
