Design Tip: 5 Ways to Keep It Cozy

Design Tip: Keeping It Cozy

When the snow is falling, the wind is whipping, and the snow plows are out, there is only one place to stay warm – inside!  Making your home cozy is essential in the long, cold winter months here in Maine. Here are our top 5 cottage style decorating essentials to keeping it warm:

 1. Bedding

  • Pillows, comforters, electric blankets!  Pile it on so that when you slip into bed, it is instant heaven.  Check out Parachute, a company that sells amazing bed sets and gives back for every dollar you spend.
  • For more tips on how to keep your bedroom warm, check out our previous post “Layering your Linens.”

2. Lined Curtain Panels

  • Windows, especially in old New England homes, can be drafty. Use long, lined curtain panels to dress up the windows and help to keep the cold out!

3. Area Rugs

  • Laying area rugs in hallways, bedrooms, and the living room can help to keep the toes toasty.  In warmer months, bare wood or tile floors can be soothing, but not in the dead of winter!

4. Ambient Lighting

  • Light bulbs come in a variety of colors that range from white/blue to white/yellow, and each range sets it’s own mood. In winter months, when we are craving the warmth of the sun, switch out your bulbs to a yellow tint for a warmer effect.  Energy Star recommends looking for lights that range from 2700K – 3000K for the desired effect.

Cool White versus Warm White Light Bulbs

5. Cable Knit Blankets

  • You can’t have enough blankets, and we absolutely love the look and feel of big cable knit blankets.  Throw them on the sofa to provide color, texture, and warmth to your home.

Design Tip: Sizing and Hanging Chandeliers

Design Tip: Sizing & Hanging Chandeliers #chandeliers #cottagechandeliers #cottagelighting #coastalchandeliers #designtip http://thedistinctivecottage.com

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. 

Once you decide where you would like to hang a chandelier, you will need to determine the size you need, how to hang it, and what style will fit your decor. Here are a few hints to help you choose the perfect chandelier:

Size

  • If you are hanging a chandelier in the center of a room, like the entryway or foyer, the best way to determine size is to add the length of the room and the width together, change that number into inches, and that gives you the maximum diameter for your chandelier.
  • For example, if your space is 10′ long by 16′ wide, add those together for 26′, and change that to inches – that gives you a maximum diameter chandelier of 26″.

Chandelier Sizing Rules | Design Tip: Sizing & Hanging Chandeliers  #chandeliers #cottagechandeliers #cottagelighting #coastalchandeliers #designtip http://thedistinctivecottage.com
Image: Beneath My Heart

  • To determine the best size chandelier to place above your dining table, take the width of your table and subtract 12″ – that gives you the maximum width for your chandelier.
  • For example, if your table is 72″ long x 40″ wide, subtracting 12″ from 40″ gives you a maximum width of 28″ for your chandelier.

Chandelier Sizing Rules | Design Tip: Sizing & Hanging Chandeliers  #chandeliers #cottagechandeliers #cottagelighting #coastalchandeliers #designtip http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Hanging

  • If the chandelier is suspended in the center of a room, like the foyer or living room, than you want the base of your chandelier to be no less than 7 feet from the floor.  This allows ample height for walking without interfering with head room.

Chandelier Sizing Rules | Design Tip: Sizing & Hanging Chandeliers  #chandeliers #cottagechandeliers #cottagelighting #coastalchandeliers #designtip http://thedistinctivecottage.com
Image: Adore Your Place

  • If the chandelier is suspended over a dining table or kitchen island, than you want to allow 30″ – 36″ from the surface of the table to the base of the chandelier.  This allows ample room to see across the table without your line of vision being interrupted by the lighting fixture.

The concept for this rustic style color board began with the “Country Dream” canvas.  The imagery is so peaceful, quiet, and calm – that is what we wanted to evoke in the color scheme.  Sage, steel gray, and beige lay the foundation for the space, being the quieter colors, and to add contrasting elements, we suggest bold black and burnt orange. In keeping with the country feel, we also recommend using reclaimed barn wood pieces for a rustic element to bring character and texture to the space.
