Cottage Style Living Room | Rooms to Love: Indigo Dream #bluedecor #livingrooms #cottagedecor #cottagestyle #casualdecor  http://thedistinctivecottage.com/

This cottage style living room hosts a beautiful blend of rustic elements, casual furniture, and artistic accents.  The scale of the primitive stone fireplace creates a natural focal point for the cozy seating area, and has a well defined mantle that is home to beautiful rustic accents.  The varying shades of deep indigo, washed denim, and royal blue look amazing against the clean white slipcovered sofa and paper white walls.  Keeping the walls bare, and the accents to a minimum, contributes to the simple, uncomplicated, and effortless design scheme.

What is your favorite blue accent in this space?

Eclectic Cottage Style Bedroom | Rooms to Love: Bold, Bold, Bold #boldcolor #cottagebedrooms #cottagedecor #cottagestyle http://thedistinctivecottage.com/Image: BHG

Bold shapes, pattern and color spread across this eclectic cottage style bedroom at every turn. The wallpaper design is a creative and whimsical print that is absolutely the focal point for the color palette and style choices. Choosing the warm chestnut stain for the stately bed creates the perfect contrast against the cobalt blue accents. And that chandelier! The funky shape is just another unexpected element in this unconventional bedroom!

Do you like the modern elements, like the X shaped ottomans, paired with the more traditional styles, like the bed?

Making an outdoor space comfortable is easy with timeless teak furniture!  These pieces have really thick cushions which make the seating oh so comfortable, and come in a variety of outdoor fabrics, so you can personalize the color palette.  The frames are made of 100% teak wood, which is naturally resistant to moisture, rot, warping, shrinking, splintering, insects, fungus, marine bores and termites, making it the ideal material for outdoor furniture.  We tied the whole look together using an indoor/outdoor rope rug in an awesome denim color, and chose throw pillows with a similar blue for added impact.

We would love to hear what your favorite outdoor furniture material is! Is it teak, wicker, or do you prefer resin?

This rustic chic bedroom is filled with drama, color saturation, and chic bohemian accents for a mixed and eclectic style!  The dark navy paneled walls are absolutely stunning, and create quite the impact in the overall design scheme.  The rust and honey hues in the rug pick up the rich tones in the oak flooring perfectly, and the combination breathes so much warmth into the space.  Layering the bed in bohemian style blankets and accent pillows really add so much personality and flair to the space.  True vintage iron beds are chipped and the paint finish is worn away to create this amazing aged and rustic texture.
