Get the Look – Cottage Style

Get the Look is one of our regular cottage decorating post features which breaks down popular cottage style room photos into each of the component products. Dimensions, specifications, colors, fabric and costs are included for each product in a cottage room photo. We thought this was a great way to stimulate cottage decorating ideas and to see how to bring a great photo to real life. Each Get the Look feature includes tags which can be sorted by color, cottage room and cottage decorating style. Please feel free to contact our designers if you need additional help.

A barn board backdrop can suit a fully rustic decor, or the slightly more refined habitat above created with framed botanical prints, fun striped pillows and candlestick lamps with fluted shades. We’re sharing some of our favorite Cottage Home pieces that can help you recreate this look and give you ideas to go in other directions.

The main attraction of this room is the Cottage Wicker Headboard, which mixes and matches with many other materials, and comes in twin, queen, full and king sizes. Available in over 400 fabric choices, our Shoreline Throw Pillow comes in both square and rectangular, and is perfect for porch, living room and bedroom accessorizing. Our go-anywhere Country Farm Harvest Bench is fully customizable, and is a handy piece to have in a guest bedroom. A part of our Country Farm Furniture Collection, it is available in 40 standard colors and 6 stains. Whether you’re attracted to beadboard or scalloped edges, these cottage-friendly options come together in the fully customizable Pemaquid 1 Drawer Nightstand. And the nightstand is a perfect place for the Tea Time Distressed White Table Lamp to perch.

Essential at all times of the year, farmhouse tables can even accommodate warm weather gatherings depending upon the wood used to craft them. We love the non-traditional look of this farmhouse trestle table surrounded by industrial chic seating. The architectural interest of the trestle base and the unexpectedly bright color of the table paired with the metallic chairs is going to start all kinds of conversation.

Our Country Farm Craftsman Trestle Table can be made of cypress for outdoor use, or other woods for indoor dining only.  It is available in 6 standard stains and 40 standard paints, including Aquamarine and Pear (shown), as well as custom paint colors. A combination of paint and stain can also be chosen. The length, width, height are all customizable, as well as the top thickness, top shape, planking, breadboards and optional extensions. Our Metal Bistro Chairs, also available as stools, come in several other colors to mix and match and serve as a sassy sidekick to your farmhouse table.

Where do you host your favorite large gatherings?

Like the verdant orange groves of the Spanish countryside, the mossy green tiles in this country cottage living room call to mind bountiful harvests and time-honored traditions. French doors with Moorish arches open to a sunny courtyard, while a hooded fireplace with moulding guarantees comfort for grey days. A natural fiber rug and low, movable seats blend with wood and leather for a rustic yet refined comfort. We love how the classic cottageness of this living room is embellished with Mediterranean touches such as scrolling sconces and exotic tiled floors.

Conjure up the effect of ancient and luxurious tiles with our Ivory on Green Pompeii Vinyl Floor Cloth. Durable, non-skid and easy to clean, our vinyl floor cloths offer an alternative to tiled floors. From our Shoreline Slipcovered Furniture, the Chatham Grande Long Slipcovered Sofa in a neutral color adds length and light to any room, and is available in 400 fabrics.  A classic cottage piece, the Twin Lakes Coffee Table offers a beadboard shelf and is customizable in size and color. A fast favorite, the Sandy Point Leather Accent Chair has clean, curving lines with nailhead embellishment (available in 50 colors). Adding a dash of texture is the Cottage Wicker Round Inset Ottoman, which can also be used as a small seat or table, and the jute / cotton blend of the Nevis Moss Jute Woven Rug (available in other colors).

Does your home have any Spanish touches?

This week’s Get the Look was inspired by a classy cottage style bedroom we found on one of our favorite websites, This Old House!  Sophisticated details like the wrought iron lamp, upholstered headboard, and simple black framed prints, give the room a classic, traditional feel.  Yet other design elements, like the punch of pumpkin orange and the horizontal beadboard wall treatment, really play up the cottage style ambiance. Fusing the two styles of traditional and cottage makes this room a very unique retreat.

Do you use orange as an accent color in your home?

Today’s Get the Look is a modest yet stylish front porch that has everything you need to carve out a small outdoor eating area.  Starting with comfort, you want a place to sit and relax, where you can have coffee in the morning or a dinner and drink in the evening.  To replicate the look we chose our favorite wicker garden set, which offers a high back chair for comfort and a table that can accommodate up to six people, if you have the space to entertain.  To really capture the beauty of outdoor ambiance, we suggest adding potted plants, hanging flowers, and lanterns.  These small but essential items will make all the difference in creating a beautiful outdoor dining area.

Do you have any tips or tricks to keep the bugs away while you dine outdoors?

This charming country bedroom is a study in neutrals that results in a soft and sophisticated look.  The gentle curves of the black iron bed combine well with the white and tan bedding, while the darker tan blanket chest provides contrast while still maintaining the neutral color palette.  A simple antique white end table keeps the look light, while the striped rug brings all the tones together.

Do you prefer a neutral color palette in the bedroom?
