Relaxed, refined and simple are just some of the ways to describe this understated cottage style great room. The space flows easily from casual dining area to the relaxed living room, all while maintaining an inviting and open ambiance. The use of similar textures, colors, and furniture styles, makes this a seamless and cohesively designed space. Among the simple and understated color palette of creams and grays are a few special pieces that jump out including the large, antler chandelier and the botanical prints that adorn the wide board walls.

Do you gravitate towards a neutral palette or a colorful kaleidoscope in your home?

This week’s Get the Look was inspired by a classy cottage style bedroom we found on one of our favorite websites, This Old House!  Sophisticated details like the wrought iron lamp, upholstered headboard, and simple black framed prints, give the room a classic, traditional feel.  Yet other design elements, like the punch of pumpkin orange and the horizontal beadboard wall treatment, really play up the cottage style ambiance. Fusing the two styles of traditional and cottage makes this room a very unique retreat.

Do you use orange as an accent color in your home?

We LOVE this adorable vintage cottage kitchen! The layering of white, white and more white, combined with architectural details, like the tall ceilings and over-sized windows, makes this an unbelievably bright and sunshiny space. Using hints of green accents and vintage garden chairs adds an outdoorsy feeling to this quaint eat-in kitchen. 

What is your favorite design detail in this space?
