Cottage Style Decorating

Cottage style decorating is casual, colorful and comfortable.  Painted furniture,  slipcovered sofas,  reclaimed wood tables,  bright fabrics,  wicker chairs and striped rugs are all part of cottage style decorating.  We have collected all of our cottage style decorating posts in one place including Color Boards, Rooms to Love, Get the Look, Inspiration Boards and Design Tips to help you develop your cottage decorating design ideas.  All of the posts include sorting tags if you need to focus on a color or need decorating ideas for a specific cottage room.  Enjoy browsing!

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: Red Letter Days

Inspiration comes in many forms – a sunset, a symphony, a speech. But if you’re stuck inside with a deadline, you must look for a muse elsewhere. Vibrant colors, clean lines that allow maximum efficiency and out of the ordinary forms that provoke thought can help your workflow along when you have your nose to the grindstone. #reds #blues #cottageoffice #cottagestyledesks http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Rooms to Love: Urban Cottage Dining Room

Life in an apartment or an urban space can still hold the charm of a country cottage when elements such as white painted barnboard walls and unfinished wood floors are given free rein. Displaying everyday staples such as crusty bread, terra cotta vessels and bottles of wine on unfinished shelves taps into a comfortingly familiar utilitarian beauty. #cottagediningroom #pastels #whites #built-ins thedistinctivecottage.com

Color Board: Made in the Jade

Let the deep and soothing shade of jade help you transition from the dark tones of winter to the brighter hues of spring. Named for a rock long esteemed for its beauty and healing powers, the color jade is a perfect pick-me-up for the post-holiday decor doldrums. Pair it with aqua, citrus green, deep blues and gold, or match it up with scarlet, pinks, greys and shades of plum. #stripedfabrics #floralfabrics #aquas #greens http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Inspiration Board: Making Spirits Bright

The holidays can overwhelm us with red, green and white. For mental health as well as variety, inject the mid-winter scene with alternative bright colors. From coppery brown and tangerine to scarlet and carnation pink, our lightweight Metal Bistro chairs can be brought out for a holiday party and paired with twinkling white lights and gold tulle ribbons. Or they can be more of a permanent fixture in your cottage decor if you are craving bright color year-round. #cottagediningroom #metaldiningchairs #reds #pinks #oranges http://thedistinctivecottage.com
