Blogger Home Tour - Cozy Little House

Welcome to the Blogger Home Series
Featuring some of the finest homes on tour in Blogland.


Everyone knows her, everyone follows her, everyone admires her.
Brenda from Cozy Little House

When I think of Brenda's blog, I think it's all in the details.
It's all about colour.

And red.

Her home is warm and welcoming.  A cozy little house indeed!

Sometimes she will mix things up and change it all around in blue.
Just as beautiful.

Let's have a wonder around the living room.
Lots of comfy sofas to sink into.

Love this lamp.

You may have to share that comfy sofa with a couple of sweet pups!
No worries, they will love your company.  :)

This is my favourite room.  The library / dining room.
Love a room full of books.  Adds charm, adds character.

A glimpse inside the very red kitchen.

Let's step outside into her pretty little garden.
When she moved to this house a few years ago, she took a empty backyard and breathed new life into it.

I will confess I copy a lot of ideas and tutorials from Brenda.
She makes it look so easy to do, and when it comes right down to it, it really is easy to do!

Here are some of my favs.

How to build a tabletop water fountain

True enough, below is an example of a look I tried to copy.
 Right down to the colour of candles!

She offers awesome tips with blogging.

Brenda's blog explores life lessons and wisdom found.
Truly inspirational words.
