Cottage-style rooms often include elements like exposed beams, open shelving, chandeliers and shabby-chic antiques. For more on this style, check out this video and these five cottage kitchens from HGTV.com.

The early 1900s flush-mount fixtures in this galley kitchen give it the charming look of yesteryear. Calming sea foam green paint brightens the retro-inspired cabinetry.
Off-white cabinets, beadboard, handmade accessories and wooden floors make this kitchen quintessentially cottage.
