Once the painting on your walls is perfect and your fabrics spotless, then you can add worn rustic decorating items and they will look fantastic and you'll get that urban cottage look.
An immaculate kitchen, rustic beams and a worn chair and table (is it a table?).
Love the sign on the wall and the log bucket.
Perfect paint and floors. Worn rocking chair with flaky paint, an old bench and another old sign on the wall.
Perfectly upholstered furniture and a lovely rug. Now yes, add the worn trunk, small side table and that linen storage unit.
