Rooms to Love: Neutral Nook

Sometimes we yearn for a seasonless space in our home that hints at, yet transcends, every time of year – a sanctuary for the days when we try to rush winter into spring but know that we still have a way to go. To help soothe mid-winter moods, pick one room in your cottage home to host a neutral palette free of signature seasonal colors. Back up this fresh new look with a variety of transitional textures evoking both warm and cold weather months to help bridge the seasons. #neutrals #cottagestudy #granitefireplace #reclaimedbarnwood

Get the Look: Trestle Trove

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. #cottageporch #aquas #greens

Color Board: Made in the Jade

Let the deep and soothing shade of jade help you transition from the dark tones of winter to the brighter hues of spring. Named for a rock long esteemed for its beauty and healing powers, the color jade is a perfect pick-me-up for the post-holiday decor doldrums. Pair it with aqua, citrus green, deep blues and gold, or match it up with scarlet, pinks, greys and shades of plum. #stripedfabrics #floralfabrics #aquas #greens

Color Board: Touch of Tartan

We have seized on an opportunity to mix patterns with plaids in a tight knit color scheme that conjure up the warm and solid sentiment of a rich relation’s old library, where bold traditional rugs emanate elegance alongside casual throws and priceless hangings bearing family tartans. #plaids #reds #golds #greys

Color Board: Toasty Tones

All the soft tints of a winter’s dawn – toasted almond, silver and champagne – that streak across the sky and snowscape are brought together in the Lotus Rug. This lushly hand-tufted rug is made in India of 100% bamboo viscose. With neutrals ranging from frosty grey to sandy browns, the Lotus Rug subtly exudes a welcoming warmth. #greys #natural #tans

Rooms to Love: Neat Neutrality

A coastal cottage living room turned out in soothing neutral tones like the one above provides a welcome everyday retreat. The added beauty of this room is that its low-profile disposition serves as the perfect foundation for changing seasonal decor. Just as natural elements like smooth stones on the hearth and seagrass upon the mantel add a coastal twist to this comfy cottage style, this room could easily be readied for Thanksgiving guests with some gourds and corncobs. #neutrals #naturals

Rooms to Love: Unfussy Farmhouse

Ushered into a century-old farmhouse living room boasting richly stained original built-ins and a quaint whitewashed brick fireplace, you’re given the seat of honor next to the fire – an antique armchair with plush persimmon upholstery. A beadboard-backed bookcase and granite hearth reinforce a unique nostalgia, and timelessness supersedes the fad of the moment to make a comfortably classic sitting area. #blues #reds #natural wood #fireplace
