As you probably know, I’m passionate about cottages and that’s why I feature a cottage every Tuesday, and I have to say that every time I choose a cottage to be posted here, I feel the need of having my own cottage some day.
This country cottage in Spain reminded me of when I was a child and we had our farm in Brazil. The house itself was quite different indoors, but the veranda was practically the same. I used to go to the farm with my grandparents at least twice a week and my grandparents would put several hammocks on the porch and we’d spend the afternoon there, talking and enjoying the warm breeze. Those were moments of happiness that I’ll always keep in my heart and I see cottages as the perfect place for us to build beautiful memories.
Lorena, the homeowner of this country cottage in Spain, had always dreamed of having her own cottage also and even though she wasn’t really looking to buy one, she simply couldn’t resist when she, accidentally, found this cottage for sale. She immediately felt this cottage was meant to be hers and soon made an offer.
Living away from where the cottage was located, she enlisted the help of builder José Luis Tirador to renovate the entire cottage and interior designer Ana Delgado, whom helped select the furniture and accessories, creating the place Lorena always dreamed of having.
Life somehow seems to be uncomplicated and a little calmer here.

It’s never too soon or too late to start building your dream.
I hope you take a minute today to ask yourself if you’re in the right path to achieve your biggest goals in life.
Life sometimes change and the dreams we once had seems to almost disappear. They get dusty, rusty and we often forget to look at them because they seem to be so distant, so “impossible”, so far from the reality. Remember to let the voice inside of your heart speak. Listen to what it’s saying. Sometimes we need to stop hearing all the voices around us to be able to hear our own.
I want you to be able to hear your voice, to know even more who you are.
Find your purpose and don’t stop dreaming and working for it. It’s never easy, but we need to keep building the life we deserve to have.
