Color Board: Brick and Mortar

Brick and mortar need each other to make something useful and beautiful. One has earthy color ranging from red to burnt orange to coral, while the other is always in an unassuming neutral. Decorating your cottage or beach house in a warm brick hue along with neutrals creates a pleasing tension and plenty of avenues for expression. #reds #natural #redflorals //thedistinctivecottage.com/

Inspiration Board: Earth and Sea

The honeyed tones of rattan and bleached sand of jute can instantly create an uplifting tropical environment within your home. And besides simply being pretty, added accessories in green and blue sea hues balance the basic earthy palette with an aquatic coolness. #wickerfurniture #aquablue #juterugs http://cottagehomefurniture.com/

Rooms to Love: Sky (Blue) High

Crisp and clean, this eat-in kitchen gives off an orderly confidence without looking contrived, a magical element of the Scandinavian style. Surprising elements of the old and new, like a gorgeous white antique enameled corner fireplace and an incredibly mod pinecone lighting fixture, mesh without giving pause. The effect is energizing. #skybluekitchen #scandinavian #farmhousetable //thedistinctivecottage.com/

Rooms to Love: Library Blues

Renowned for its calming properties, blue perfectly suits bedrooms, porches and just about anywhere you want to relax. This library’s cadet blue lends a sense of reassuring solidity, not stuffiness. This small area plays with cool tones and warm: plush apricot pillows and a rusty red occasional table lend a dusting of warmth to the palette. #blues #builtinbookcases #cozylibrary //thedistinctivecottage.com/

Color Board: Aqua Vie

The lull between the holidays and the first of spring can set the mind wandering to warmer climes and bright colors. In lieu of an island getaway, create an atmosphere of deep ocean waters and beachside margaritas with aqua, indigo and citrus green touches. #aquas #cottagerugs #blues #citrusgreen //thedistinctivecottage.com/

Rooms to Love: The Well Red Cottage

Adding touches of red to a cottage living room can be an inspired decorating move, but can also daunt those who think that the color necessarily invokes boldness. Soft reds are a compromise between creating warmth and overpowering the senses. #cottagelivingroom #brickhearth #redaccents //thedistinctivecottage.com/
