CSOK, you have probably sensed a theme, I am currently obsessed with all the trappings of summer homes.  It could be that my stint at the old family home has coincided with summer, and I pretty much have felt like I am on a summer retreat.  That will change soon enough – winter comes early to the mountains of New Hampshire – however, in the meantime I am all about summer decorating.

The other day I quite literally stumbled upon a business dedicated to decorating vacation homes, Cottage Surroundings in Wolfeboro, NH.  Don’t worry if you can’t pop into their retail shop in New Hampshire, they have an awesome website with all their great products available for sale.

About Cottage Surroundings: “Whether you are looking for cabin or lodge furniture and decor, the perfect lamp or lighting for the lake house or a model sailboat for your ocean cottage you will find it here. You will also discover ways to warm up a rustic home with hooked wool pillows and rugs, wall decor, bedding in a moose or bear theme or hand carved decoys and folk art.”

I really like the sensibility of Cottage Surroundings’ well-curated offerings.  The vintage feel and classic styles make you want to purchase just about everything to make your summer space – no matter where it is – into something that takes you away.  I particularly like the collection of Ocean-Themed pillows.
