The British name their houses. My husband has lived in homes like The Dowry & Edlelston Cottage. Family in England have houses named Elwell House, Riffa House Farm, & The Stables. We jokingly call our home Crossley Manor:)
There is something about naming homes that
helps give them a personality!In keeping with our British tradition of naming houses, we named the downstairs apartment "Nellie's Nook." Built in 2009 as an addition to the upstairs apartment, this cozy nook is perfect for a couple's getaway, 2-3 girlfriends, or mother-daughter retreats. We needed this addition to Nellie's Cottage for our guests who may not be able to climb the stairs, and to accommodate larger groups at Nellie's Cottage.
I went shopping for my decor in... my "old window pile" from the cottage construction, my attic & linen closet, goodwill, my mom's attic, walmart, marshalls, etc....all the places for good shabby stuff:)
