Crafting a Cottage Sanctuary

Throughout their cottage, especially in rooms set aside for guests, the Galvans strive to provide a welcoming atmosphere. “Since we are a military family, we do have a lot of out of town people come and stay with us. I wanted people to feel really good when they were in those rooms and really comfortable,” she says.

Starting with a clean, neutral base she slowly added pieces that felt fun and eclectic and most of all, inviting. Liz adds that whether she’s shopping at a discount store like TJMaxx or a department store, she always looks for pieces that look and feel unique, “so it doesn’t look like it was decorated all in one day.”
