We love this lodge style dining room and all of the rustic elements that make it so unique.  Who uses birch tree wallpaper?  A designer who really knows how to make a statement!  Huge exposed natural timbers lining the walls and gambrel roof, and a massive twig chandelier hanging in the center of the room, create large scale focal points.  The ambiance must be truly amazing in the evening with the lights low.  It probably feels like you are dining in the middle of the great outdoors!

How much would you love dining in this one of a kind space?

As the hot summer months cool down for a crisp September here in Maine, we start to crave the warmer tones of fall foliage.  In today’s cottage style color board, we chose warmer autumn colors, like pumpkin and marigold, but since we aren’t quite ready to let summer go, we used a couple of amazing ocean blues too.

You can find all of these spectacular colors in the Hayden Hand Tufted rug, which is made of 100% wool, and perfect for large gathering areas, like the living room or family room.  The design of the rug is a mix of traditional and transitional, and will fit many different cottage style homes.  We chose fabrics to complement the focal point rug, and they can be used in any combination for a sofa, loveseat, accent chair(s) and throw pillows.  Do you love the colors, but want to choose a more subtle rug?  Check out the Lake Spectrum Hooked Rug that brings a burst of color to the space in a simple print.

Which rug would you prefer for your family room?
