AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Cottage and Bungalow, the luxury home décor company, offers American made handcrafted coastal furniture, beach décor and accessories crafted from driftwood, seashells, and other types of luxury items are the perfect complement for any the summer home.

Having spent years living near, in or around, beach towns on both coasts and in some of the wealthiest summer zip codes, of the many things that stood out of course was the relaxed style of furnishings these usually high achievers had when they had the summer home decorated.

And in areas where seasonal is a non-existent, decorating the summer home or the patio is an extension of one's life, style and good taste. Having both seashore, summer cottage, pool, deck, patio outdoor and even indoor furniture is reflective of life at the beach.


Celebrate the Beginning of Sizzling Summer Days with "Beach Cocktails" (Recipes)


Recently, Cottage and Bungalow emailed recently wondering if Haute-Lifestyle.com would be interested providing a review of the luxury home decor and accessories offered. She explained most editors receive a credit which specializes the review to the tastes and samples chosen by the editor.

Cottage and Bungalow offers many high end, luxuriously handcrafted artisan style one of a kind pieces. Cottage Bed Frames, writing desks, Highboy and Four Drawer Dressers as well as nightstands. Furnishings for every room that would complete ones home are available. All pieces are one of a kind, as each are handcrafted.

So with an allotted credit I began to pursue the website wondering as the offerings began to pique my interest should I decide on one item, or chose several. I opted for several and after reviewing many of the gorgeous and elegant choices: Harbor Telescope: A porthole desk clock or the Porthole Three- Instrument Weather Center all stand outs, stylish, with the appearance of old money and high on my list of possibilities.

After much review, and thinking of many of the products, I certainly would have enjoyed the Harbor telescope, as it brought back memories of living in Carolina Beach, North Carolina looking out over the ocean seeing the dolphins bursting through the water's surface and diving back.

Cottage and Bungalow also offers Brass Binoculars on a Stand, and an Avalon Telescope, items that effortlessly become the room's center of attention. So good for star gazing or sea watching.

Deciding on accessories, as opposed to furnishings or décor, I chose the new Lola Two Tone Pillows. An oversized 20" x 20" the throw pillows are perfect for the sofa or chair. They come in Polyester or Down fill.

A Montego Striped Melon Chenille Throw, a beautifully crafted 100% cotton chenille perfect for decoration and functional, for anytime when the summer sun sinks and the evening brings nighttime chill.

I also received two items from the Sailcloth selections.

The Medium Sailcloth Tote which is really like nothing I've ever seen or used. Thinking a white canvas bag which I have used for many years. These sailcloth tote bags are like are made "from triple layers of cloth on the bottom make them nearly indestructible, and a tough, waterproof lining keeps their contents clean and dry. They're sized to be just right for carrying to and from the boat, with a handle long enough to sling over your shoulder. They have plenty of pockets on the inside for keys, sunglasses, and a magazine, and a zippered, gusseted pocket on the outside as well. Zippered top keeps contents dry and secure, and stays out of the way when not needed. Measures: 11.5"H x 13"W x 5"D."

The Second sailcloth bag Items, stow bags, used for clothes, clothing, towels, children's toys, laundry, you name it as well as perfect for below deck storage. "Our Sailcloth Stow Bags are perfect for onboard stowage of tools, toys, or smaller miscellany. A great reusable lunch bag, too! The XLarge Stow Bag is the perfect size for a laundry bag, or to carry bulky items like snorkel gear. Made from double-layered sailcloth, our Sailcloth Stow Bags are completely indestructible. Their tops are a single layer of coated polyester - strong, but flexible enough to draw tightly closed. All sizes come in blue trim only.
Medium measures 12"H x 7.5"Dia. Large measures 19"H x 9"Dia. Extra Large measures 24"H x 11"Dia.

I am beyond thrilled with the items. The two tone Lola pillows are functional, beautiful and as someone who spends hours at a keyboard they provide just the right amount of support.


Helpful Hints For The Procrastinating Gardener


The sailcloth bags went from package to integration into my daily life. Everything I received had multi uses, which plays to my multi-tasking personality.
