This is modern cottage décor done right, and this book includes homes decorated by some of my favorite local designers, Mindy Laven , Raili Clasen , Ashley Clark and Shannon Wilkins . Many of whom were highlighted in my ongoing “Featured Designer” blog series.

Written by Molly Hyde English and photographed by Ryan Garvin , this book is quite a page turner with beautifully detailed descriptions and gorgeous photos! I’m not exaggerating when I say every page has something beautiful on it.
