The Dream Cottage...what is it and who has one? We found five beautiful cottage-style homes that are their owners dream and we think you'll find inspiration in them, too. From Maine to California, each one is unique. We've also gathered goods that can take your existing home from drab to fab with small upgrades that make a big difference. And speaking of dreams come true, our 2021 Project House is finished and fully revealed in this issue. Come see how our farmhouse cottage turned out! And finally, meet our new 2022 Brand Ambassador, Kara Williams, who's style and creativity won the hearts of our readers in our nationwide vote. Brush off the post-holiday doldrums and start dreaming!
