Design Tip: Sizing and Hanging Chandeliers

Chandeliers are an important design element in the home that bring both fashion and function to a space. Lighting defines and accentuates the ambiance you want to create in your home by creating either a soft and relaxing space, or a bright and productive space. Just like colors, the lighting you choose for a space can drastically affect the way you feel, see, and perform tasks in a room. #chandeliers #cottagechandeliers #cottagelighting #coastalchandeliers #designtip http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Design Guide: Bed Frame Sizes

Widths and lengths for common mattresses and support systems are highly standardized within the United States and Canada. However, mattress heights are not standard and will vary by style, manufacturer, and design. Mattresses in Europe and Asia also have different standard sizes. Bed frames for mattresses and support systems consist of a headboard, footboard, two side rails and a slat package. Center supports are included in full, queen, and king slat systems. Bed frames are designed to support standard mattress sizes. Final bed size depends on the specific bed’s design. #designguides #cottagefurniture #beds #bedroomfurniture http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Color Board: Embracing Autumn

This time of year you want your cottage home to be a retreat from the chilly air outside.  We recommend introducing copper, persimmon, and golds into your decor to create a strong sense of warmth and comfort.  The featured rug boasts a variety of golds and rusts, and is a great jumping off point for an inviting palette.  We suggest a mixture of soft solids, relaxed linens, and weathered leather for a texturally interesting combination.
