I once read that there was no such thing as cottage style. I completely disagree with that statement. I believe there is a cottage style and I will explain what that style means to me.

Although the word cottage itself brings to mind a small house or structure, I also think of other design elements that can be used to create spaces that are intimate, inviting and comfortable.  Some of those elements are decorative corbels, bright airy windows, white painted surfaces, beadboard wainscoat, decorative gardens, comfy overstuffed chairs, slipcovers, repurposed vintage furniture, fabrics and collectibles.

Style that begins with
simple comfort and then embraces the elements of sun, sand and sea
To take it a step further, Coastal cottage brings to mind thoughts of summer vacations by the sea with bright colors against white backgrounds, textured linens and upholstery, and sun filled rooms that personify surf, sand and sea. I believe I can bring a feeling to a room or even an entire house that evokes memories of casual, comfortable vacations. 

Why shouldn't you have those same relaxing spaces in your own home that can be enjoyed every day?

I can design and furnish your home to create an environment with clean lines and fresh bright interiors that will make your home a place that will feel welcoming and relaxing from the moment you enter.

Owner & Principal Designer
Chesapeake Cottage Interiors


Linda Woodall is an interior designer who would describe her style as coastal cottage. Growing up in the Chesapeake Bay region and vacationing along the beaches of the Atlantic has formed a style that begins with simple comfort and then brings in the warm fresh feeling of sun, sand and the elements of the sea. Finding interesting pieces of architectural elements and vintage furniture at local auctions contributes to her green mission of repurposing, which has become wildly popular and lends itself perfectly to cottage style. Linda attended the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she received her degree in Interior Design. She is also an Allied Member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and has over twenty years of experience in the design industry..
