Amazingly airy and welcoming, this restored oceanfront cottage was once used by Cape Cod fisherman as a storehouse for bait and fishing equipment. Perched upon a wharf with direct views of the Atlantic, this cabin disarmingly blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living. Weathered floor boards and salty, exposed timbers, along with several points of access to the outside, all give a sense of freedom and connection with the sunshine as well as shelter if bad weather happens to blow in.

A large part of the charm of this space is, of course, its ocean view – not an option for all of us! But other elements that add to the carefree comfort are possible to replicate in your own home. Combine pieces with weighty permanence such as well-worn leather club armchairs with breezy antique rattan and wicker chairs. Natural wood and woven textiles are key, but also add doses of seaside hues like teal, ink and royal. White semi-sheer drapes let in light and create a sense of transcending boundaries. In fact, any little touch that will help you capture the feeling of a permanent vacation is worth incorporating.

Do you have a room that is a lot like the outdoors?

Who wouldn’t want to hurry back to this tranquil chateau-inspired bedroom with its sturdy yet lacy iron bed and profusion of pillows and soft flounces?

Basing our Get the Look on a Better Homes and Gardens page for English country style, we have highlighted here a few Cottage Home pieces that will nicely match the overall feel. Aged to perfection, the Eva Iron Bed is only one of a large collection of our Vintage Iron Beds. The bed is available in 35 various standard finishes, some distressed, with classic castings. The slender chandelier with some crystal bling is the Fiona Small Chandelier. This piece is in wrought iron and makes a demure yet dazzling impression. The rustic Barn Wood Plank Top Bench in reclaimed barn wood is a perfect touch for this cottage bedroom and can be customized in length as well as varying widths. Stained or painted, this bench will become an heirloom.

Do you miss your bed the most when away from home?

Working with a whitewashed canvas is a great way to clear the palate after a diet of wintry darkness. Reinvent your decor for the upcoming spring with splashes of cheery color, like leaf green, against white walls, white floors and even a white bedspread. Remember to experiment: the fresh bedroom cottage look shown above can be created with white plus any color, from aqua to tangerine to goldenrod.

This beachy cottage bedroom was once an enclosed porch, and now looks like a Hemingway-esque retreat. Leaf green textiles, bold wall art, and the large palm frond on the dresser help create a tropical feel. The old weathered bench at the foot of the bed is a twist on the usual hope chest, and invites one to lounge. Painted cottage nightstands, one in green and one in white, add a playful touch. We offer a similar customizable end table (Country Farm Classic End Table) in a variety of colors and stains, as well as apron and leg styles.

Is spring your favorite season?

Adding an occasional table in Avocado over Barn Paint or an area rug like the bold Prism Hand Knotted Jute Rug will instantly change your wintry frame of mind.

Ramp up the color with tropically bright fabrics, paint and rugs, or choose to combine brights with neutrals, as in our versatile 100% cotton Aquinnah Woven Cotton Rug.  Our featured Shoreline Slipcovered Furniture fabric, Ferngully Indigo Fabric, offers a beautiful natural pattern in a carefree and breezy linen/cotton blend.

Today’s Rooms to Love is a beautiful example of how warm and cozy lodge style homes can be with the right decor.  Large exposed beams and stone fireplaces are quintessential features in lodge style homes, and as beautiful as these natural elements are, they can pose a design challenge in the bedroom.  

In order to soften this robust space, textiles were used wherever possible.  Thick cushions, plush pillows, and luxurious blankets drape the bed and corner bench, providing irresistible places to lounge.  But the most important textile for this space is the almost-wall-to-wall rug, not only because of the beautiful neutral colors, but the large size.  We don’t normally root for hiding wood floors, but in this case it is the right design decision.  The space has so much exposed wood that hiding the dark floors with the rug balances the overall feel of the space. 

If this was your home, would you change the wall color or keep it mossy green?

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?
