Explore the Colors of the Harvest Season in Our New Autumn Issue

Photography by Megan Vaughan, Design by Vaughan House Greenhouse

Taking note from the plentiful colors of the season, the Autumn issue of The Cottage Journal tours gorgeous homes and gardens from California to Virginia. Interior design icon Dorothy Draper once said, “There seems to be within all of us an innate yearning to be lifted momentarily out of our own lives into the realm of charm and make-believe.” The sentiment is so appropriate as we present this issue filled with personal stories of people who have made their dreams come true. Take a peek at what’s inside the issue below, and then be sure to pick up your own copy on newsstands or here.
