Our Favorite Winter Exteriors

By Emily Esleck

The blustery winter weather may be bone-chilling but the soft elegance and mystic beauty that a cloak of snow brings is just absolutely breathtaking. We love cottages covered in snow—and let’s be honest, who doesn’t? For our winter lovers out there, look to these dreamy scenes for touches of a winter wonderland filled with cottage-style and rustic cabin moods.
