Hi! Welcome! I’m so glad you are here!
At Cottage Prep, my goal is to make home more than just the place where we live. We will talk about paint colors and decorating, but we will also talk about the feel of our homes and the relationship we have with our things and, most importantly, our families. This is where we make our four walls (whether they are owned, rented, or borrowed) a reflection of who we are and how we want to live. Cottage Prep is a place to share ideas, learn new techniques, and encourage each other in this ever changing process of making a home.
So what in the world is home?
noun: the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household
adjective: of or relating to the place where one lives.
verb: move or be aimed toward (a target or destination) with great accuracy
Home can simply be where you live. But it can be so much more! It is the place where you relate to your family, where you gather and store your things, and where you can show others what you are all about. Home is an action word! At Cottage Prep,
Home means creating beautiful, intentional spaces that nurture relationships.
Home will never be done. We will always be learning, changing, tweaking as seasons in our lives come and go and as we create environments that reflect the way we live right now. The fun is in the journey.
It’s good to be home.
