Get the Look: Relaxed Rustic

City dwellers lucky enough to come by a spacious apartment with exposed brick and floor-to-ceiling windows definitely have a head start on creating an urban oasis. But anyone can add elements of this effortlessly elegant pied-a-terre feel to their decor by studying the relaxed rustic space above. Borrow ideas like mixing traditional furniture with a primitive patterned rug as well as using a versatile slipcovered sofa as a time-tested gathering spot. Vital to this inviting living room is a cottage-style slipcovered sofa. Offering a touch of refined style paired with a casual air, our Camden Slipcovered Sofa is perfect for dressing up with overstuffed pillows as you see fit. Available in a townhouse and regular size, this sofa is just one option from our Shoreline Slipcovered Furniture Collection. #decoratingwithwhite #slipcovered #neutrals http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Rooms to Love: Neutral Nook

Sometimes we yearn for a seasonless space in our home that hints at, yet transcends, every time of year – a sanctuary for the days when we try to rush winter into spring but know that we still have a way to go. To help soothe mid-winter moods, pick one room in your cottage home to host a neutral palette free of signature seasonal colors. Back up this fresh new look with a variety of transitional textures evoking both warm and cold weather months to help bridge the seasons. #neutrals #cottagestudy #granitefireplace #reclaimedbarnwood http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Inspiration Board: In the Mix

Injecting a beach cottage feel in your home can be as easy as pairing a neutral duo such as silvery grey and sandy natural with seaborne hues like blues and greens. A mix of weathered grey and sand with aqua and deep sea blue brings to mind bleached driftwood set against a shimmering blue sky and ocean expanse. #aquas #greens #greys #cottagelivingroom http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Inspiration Board: Splitting Chairs

Options for matching rugs with chairs are as wide open as your sense of adventure. A weathered bar stool with a farmhouse feel may suit a soft grey wool rug just as well as an urban chic white metal stool – the decision lies with your overall style goals. #stripedrugs #woodchairs #cottagelivingroom http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Rooms to Love: Inside Out

As colder weather nears, we couldn’t decide whether we were more drawn to the idea of the comforts of indoors outside or the hallmarks of outdoors inside, so we married the two scenarios in our Rooms to Love. Equally appealing to the homebody in us all, the fireplaced farmhouse living room and lodge porch above both offer rusticity as well as small touches of welcome luxury. #cottagelivingroom #neutrals #rustic #lodgeporch http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Rooms to Love: Neat Neutrality

A coastal cottage living room turned out in soothing neutral tones like the one above provides a welcome everyday retreat. The added beauty of this room is that its low-profile disposition serves as the perfect foundation for changing seasonal decor. Just as natural elements like smooth stones on the hearth and seagrass upon the mantel add a coastal twist to this comfy cottage style, this room could easily be readied for Thanksgiving guests with some gourds and corncobs. #neutrals #naturals http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Rooms to Love: Unfussy Farmhouse

Ushered into a century-old farmhouse living room boasting richly stained original built-ins and a quaint whitewashed brick fireplace, you’re given the seat of honor next to the fire – an antique armchair with plush persimmon upholstery. A beadboard-backed bookcase and granite hearth reinforce a unique nostalgia, and timelessness supersedes the fad of the moment to make a comfortably classic sitting area. #blues #reds #natural wood #fireplace http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Get the Look: Spanish Moss

Like the verdant orange groves of the Spanish countryside, the mossy green tiles in this country cottage living room call to mind bountiful harvests and time-honored traditions. French doors with Moorish arches open to a sunny courtyard, while a hooded fireplace with moulding guarantees comfort for grey days. A natural fiber rug and low, movable seats blend with wood and leather for a rustic yet refined comfort. We love how the classic cottageness of this living room is embellished with Mediterranean touches such as scrolling sconces and exotic tiled floors. #greens #naturals #cottagelivingroom http://thedistinctivecottage.com
