English Cottage Home Decorating

When you think of an English home, we think of thatched cottages...


...square brick or rock country farm homes...




...and the elegant manor homes...


We know, realistically, that British homes are just as diverse as American homes but we like to stereotype. How do you decorate in English Country or English Cottage? From what I found on the Internet you can pick some things out that would give you guidance.

We tend to think of the English cottage as being very old and families have lived many generations in them so there would be layers of stuff. Let's think about what we think of as English Country.
