Color Board: Sea and Sand

Building a room around a rug is a classic design mantra. To select one rug that pulls off just the right look – whether it be cottage style or even farmhouse formal – consider the texture, shape, size and palette. Bold solid colors or muted melanges, soft wool or versatile polypropylene or jute, traditional rectangles or eye-catching circles – these are all choices that can help steer your living room toward either cozy or dramatic. Our Cottage Home designers suggest laying out newspaper on the floor to simulate the size of the rug to help you pick the right dimensions. #seafoamgreen #natural http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Color Board: Teal and Grey

Combining teal and grey is a fail-safe way to add a beachy feel to any decor. A deep bluish-green sea of teal coexisting with a weathered wash of grey creates a soothing palette for any room in your cottage home. Bringing in a new piece of painted furniture, a punchy floor covering or even a whole wicker set can help overhaul a home needing a beach house-inspired makeover. #grey #teal #colorboard #cottagedecorating 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: 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
