Perhaps you can already tell from her adorable window garden cottage that things are pretty whimsical around here.

Come… let’s step out of the woods and into her enchanting cottage home.

Dana’s kitchen is an eclectic mix of pretty pastels, mix and match china collections, vintage pieces and handmade items.

This room is so cheerful with its abundance of windows and cottage elements like pretty wallpaper, throws, doilies and table cloths.

Do you see all the handmade Tilda pieces too?

This Chippendale sofa (below) is Dana’s favourite piece of furniture.

Throw in a mix of pretty pastel checks and florals and you have a charming décor style that Dana calls ‘Shabby Swedish’.

If you love the whimsical charm of handmade Tilda projects, many of Dana’s pretty Tilda pieces shown here are from the book, Sew Pretty Homestyle.

Dana once had a pretty blog where she shared beautiful photos of her cottage home… many of these you’ll now find on Pinterest, but sadly she no longer has social media or a blog.

I’m very grateful to Dana for sharing her latest home photos here today on Shabbilicious Sunday and for allowing me to share them regularly on my Facebook page too.

I feel all that is left to say from our fairy-tale cottage visit is…

And they lived happily ever after!!

  6. I miss Dana so much. I used to look at her blog everyday to get inspired and lift my spirit. I am glad she is o.k. I was wondering. Thanks Kerryanne I am loving your Shabbilicious Sunday blog post. Can you ask Dana to do Instagram Pintrest won’t let me on (really my Mister). Thanks again Pandy from Lexington Mo.

  7. This has to be one of the sweetest, cutest, darling, oh well, you know, cottages that I’ve ever seen. I’m doing a dollhouse and plan to use this as a template. My library is the only room in my house that I can decorate anything like that because my husband likes leather sofas and manly things!!! My library is pink and white and fru-fru and I love it. This cottage and the garden house is just awesome!! Thanks for sharing!!

  10. I absolutely love Dana’s cottage; I could move in today. Her style is exactly what I love. I’d like to find Dana on Pinterest, but there is nothing under her name. Do you know how I can find her on Pinterest? She does need to put that fairytale cottage on Instagram. Kerryanne, I adore your Shabbilicious Sundays. I love Vibeke and your other choices, but now I have added Dana to my Favorites. Thank you! Linda

  11. Jeanne Luddeni says:

    Oh I just love pastels and of course everything is peaceful looking
    But looking at tilda made me want to start making her again
    I’m so glad to have seen this just so beautiful

  12. Thanks to all for your lovely comments! You can find me in Instagram, Walnut_Cottage.
    And Thanks to you my sweet Kerryanne.
    Hugs! Dana

  13. Love it all. So beautiful and comfy looking. Woud you tell me what color brands of paint you use, both cream and white? I am planning to paint an antique oak bedroom set…..it has beautiful carvings and a tall headboard and footboard. Would you suggest painting it cream? Do you use latex or chalk paint? Would appreciate any ideas you have. Thanks so much.

    • Kerryanne says:

      Ellie, you would have to contact Dana directly to ask her what colours she uses. Personally, I use both acrylic (latex) and chalk paints, depending on the project.

Speak Your Mind
