Whether it’s by the sea or in the countryside many Viva 70 readers dream of owning a little place with a garden in a small community as a weekend escape from the city or a permanent residence. You know the dream where life is simple and the cottage is comfortable for grandkids and friends to gather and for a quiet retreat.
When I began my search for the country idyll ten years ago I began a scrapbook of ideas…an old fashioned pinterest www.pinterest.com.au
Gathering some images of the country retreat is always fun to share.
Looking back at this book and many websites here are some great images of country retreats and interiors and some of the websites that inspire.
