5. Summer in a small French village. Design blogger Stephanie Brubaker lives in this charming cottage in the Dordogne Valley with her husband and children year-round. But as long as we are daydreaming, wouldn't it be lovely to spend summers in France? Imagine falling into the rhythm of village life, shopping the markets each day and relaxing over delicious dinners and wine in the evenings outside your own stone cottage.See more of Stephanie's medieval French cottage
A basket of groceries sits by the door. The bread and produce were all bought from the town's farmer's market. "The Monday market is the best time to shop for ingredients. But if you need a basic item or two, the small convenience store is the place to go," says Brubaker. This very same kitchen area used to house the village's town oven, where village serfs would pay their lords a fee for use of the oven when baking bread. Brubaker, an avid baker and cook, loves this historical aspect of the cottage.

This kitchen uses a trestle table. This room gives off a warm, cabin-feeling atmosphere. The use of lines was repetitive throughout the room, with the staircase railing, the table, and the ceiling beams. Again, more people can be placed around the table in comparison to a regular chair. There is mostly brown, neutral tones used within the room.
