Rooms to Love: Book Nook

All book lovers would jump at the opportunity to carve out a cottage style space like this that is dedicated solely to curling up with a good book. The large built-in window seat provides a creative and unique space that is large enough for the whole family to curl up with their favorite books. The natural sunlight through the window is perfect for afternoon reading, while the sconces provide the task lighting needed when your book is just too good to put down, even after the sun has set. We love the way the thick drapes frame the book nook, and can be drawn when you want a little more serenity. Pile on the plush pillows and soft quilts for added warmth, comfort, and style. #farmhousedecor #cozycorners #cottagedecor #roomstolove //thedistinctivecottage.com/

Inspiration Board: Winter Blues

Here at Cottage Home we are embracing the cool blue tones of winter in this cottage style living room. The soft blue rug is such a pretty color that creates a calm and soothing ambiance for the whole space. Lifting the blue tone in the rug and using similar shades for the accessories creates a monochromatic and unified design. To add warmth to the “cool” space, we chose Old English Pine furniture pieces that are waxed in a low luster light brown tone. The natural looking finish blends in beautifully with the casual setting and still provides plenty of character and texture of the old wood. Add lots of big, soft blankets to the sofa and chair for an inviting space to brave the cold of this chilly winter! #coastaldecor #cottagedecor #bluedecor #reclaimedwoodfurniture #slipcoveredfurniture www.thedistinctivecottage.com
