Oh My, Found a New Shop

Thursday, July 8, 2010

I found a new store, I found a new store, I found a new store!

The Cottage Company
120 Dunlop Street East
Barrie, ON

I'm always so excited when I find new stores that are in (somewhat) driving distance. I could totally make the 3-4 hour drive to visit this lovely shop. Just look at all of white painted furniture and adorable accessories. Heaven!

My favourites are definitely the end tables, the upholstery fabric, the bed frame, the accessories. Oh wait, pretty much everything!

All photos (and more) can be found on The Cottage Company website.


  1. Very pretty!!!
    I wish I had a cottage in cottage country....bliss!

    I do picture you, however, scrubbing mucky little handprints and boogers off your lovely white furniture :) I recall, about a month before we were married, Dimitri and I shopping for a couch for our new 'married' apartment. We were sitting on a gorgeous white linen couch and I had visions of a bright, airy room with sunlight streaming in through the gauzy curtains as I read on the lovely new sofa. The guy looked at us, snickered, and said 'you planning on having kids?' 'Of course', we said naively. He laughed and ushered us over to the browny-taupe range.

    Let me tell you, Nick was a projectile vomiter (at least 2 times a day) and never met a diaper he couldn't blow out. That couch colour hid EVERYTHING and withstood multiple cleans with my Bissel steamer!

    So, if you choose to go with the dreamy, lovely white colour scheme, best of luck! I adore it, but I can't imagine getting barf off of it, much less the stuff my kids are now capable of!!!!

  2. I too LOVE the pretty white, cottage-y decor but I've gotta concur with Claire (hilarious!) - it would be maddening to try to keep sticky jam fingers (and ickier things) off your pretty pretty white things! :) I can attest that our brown microsuede couches are holding up beautifully to whatever Owen throws their way, while our beige carpets...eeewww....not so much. I admit that I hold out hope of having lovely white things in my retirement beach house though... :)

  3. Haha, Sarah. It looks like your house. LOVE it!

  4. I'm tellin' ya, the beauty of those Ikea slip-covered couches is that they can be thrown in the washer on hot (and with bleach). They come out crisp and white every time. Oh yeah, and you can always buy another set of covers at Ikea when the old ones start to get worn out.

    Have I convinced you girls yet? You know you want to go white! I'll come shopping with you!

    Hee hee.

  5. I used to live in Barrie!!! :)

    Nice shop!
