Welcome to the series If My Blog Was A Room… where I pose the challenge to think of your blog as an actual space. What would that space look like? I am so excited to have Rene here, from her design blog Cottage and Vine. Rene is a very talented interior decorator who beautifully blends traditional with modern. I am inspired by her projects and am super excited to see what her blog room would look like! Here is her pretty blog header:
And here is what she came up with-
Hello to all of Amber’s readers! I am RenÃ© from the Cottage & Vine blog and I am happy to be invited to be a part of this fun series. Well, I say fun, but honestly, it isn’t easy to pick one room that says it all – so I picked two. Thank you Amber for this therapy session. I think I needed that ;).
When I first started my blog the name that came to me was Cottage & Vine. “Cottage” to me means fresh not shabby. Think equal parts of rustic and chic, a mix of old and new, in a hi-low approach. “Vine” comes from my love of gardening and the organic elements that I like to incorporate into our home. If my blog was a room, it could easily be the entry in the above image. I think it shows what my blog is all about. Painted & natural wood, organic elements, and an eclectic mix are all things that I feature on Cottage & Vine. I would like to throw a colorful rug in there somewhere though.
I want my blog to be a place where people can hang out and feel comfortable. At the same time, I hope that visitors are intrigued and inspired.
Thanks so much for having me today Amber!
I am definitely inspired, Rene! Thanks so much for being here. I loved hearing the story behind your blog name. And these images definitely remind me of your blog! The ikat ottomans with that mirror over the mantel is amazing! If you’re not a follower already, definitely stop by Rene’s blog– you’ll be so happy you did!
