Dining room with a view! This beautiful coastal style home boasts plenty of large windows that allow the sun and ocean air to breeze right in. The soft color palette used throughout the space enhances the light and bright cottage ambiance, and is offset by using crisp white accents. The round dining table is perfect for this space, because each guest can sit comfortably and enjoy the surrounding view. But you don’t need a seaside cottage to get this look! By using a few cottage style pieces in the right colors, you can re-create this coastal style anywhere.

If this was your cottage home, would you prefer to have window treatments?

Looking for a little porch inspiration for spring? Look no further than today’s casual, cottage style front porch! The combination of neutral and vivid colors with wicker and old wood furniture creates a unique retreat perfect for so many activities.  This spot is a place for an afternoon read, family games on the coffee table, or entertaining a small group of friends.  It is outfitted with comfortable wicker furniture, which isn’t always easy to find, that has deep seats and plush cushions.  Choosing more muted tones for the furniture allows the homeowners to switch out the throw pillows, rug and/or curtains easily to re-create the overall look.

We love this welcoming farmhouse style dining room for its laid back atmosphere, and fresh clean look.  A key element to a cozy dining room is to provide your family and guests with comfortable seating.  Here they chose three different styles of seating for an eclectic and gathered look, but all have one thing in common, they all have cushioned seats. Using parsons or wicker chairs instead of wooden chairs can make for a more pleasant dining experience.  They tend to have a wider seat, higher back, and cushioned seat allowing more room to really get comfortable!  You may feel skeptical of using white fabric on the chairs, but having the pieces slipcovered makes cleaning a breeze.

We love the wall to wall bookcases that line the room and create a spectacular focal point. Choosing the bold turquoise for the largest piece in the space makes quite the statement in this stylish study!
