Creating the Gilmore Girls Dragonfly Inn look

Gilmore%20Girls%20Dragonfly%20Inn%20decorating%20style.%20Interior%20design%20ideas

Anyone who has watched the Gilmore Girls will tell you the Dragonfly Inn is the quintessential Connecticut Getaway. Cosy, traditional, a little bit quirky. We've all stayed at a place like this at least once. Where the urge to do a jigsaw puzzle whilst sipping a brandy overcomes you.

Luckily my family are all very fond of this style so I've been surrounded by this deep rooted traditional style most of my life. Collecting odd and old pieces of furniture, glassware, crockery is a bit of an addiction for me.... but how do you create this look in a new home, or if you are starting from scratch. Well I've got everything to get you started right here. You can also read our other articles which have lots more ideas on creating that Gilmore Girls Dragonfly Inn look or other cosy home looks.

These are some basics that will instantly create the mood, follow the links and you'll also find the stockists have a huge range of similar items if these aren't quite your taste.
