Color Board: Energetic Colors!

Are you looking for a fun and lively colorful cottage decorating palette to get a room redesign started? Look no further! This color board offers a beautiful balance between zesty orange and lime green, with a splash of powder blue. The burnt sienna printed rug (in the top left hand corner) would lay the foundation for a bold look in a living room, with the powder blue fabric for the sofa. Then, have fun with the other patterns and prints for pillows, accent chairs, and curtains! Any combination you decide on will make your space a haven for color and creativity.

Inspiration Board: Graceful Dining

Creating a graceful and soothing dining room is easy when working with a palette like this! The medley of sea foam greens, sage, robin’s egg blue, sand, and white has a relaxing effect in this understated room. A clean and simple dining room does not have to mean using all neutral tones. This is a great example of putting together a classic look without shying away from all color.

Design Tip: Beadboard Paneling

This beautiful cottage style bedroom is a perfect example of how beadboard can really make a statement. The stunning blue paint on the walls really emphasizes the horizontal beadboard wall covering, and brings a whole new level of charisma to the space. You will also notice that the beadboard is used on the ceiling as well. A small, but important, design detail in using multiple beadboard surfaces is to switch up the sizing of the panels as well as the direction that they run. The ceiling slats are smaller and positioned vertically, and the wall slats are slightly larger and positioned horizontally. This helps to break up any monotony or over-stimulation you might feel if the beadboard was the same everywhere.
