Cottage Style Color Boards

Our cottage style color boards present a variety of fabric, paint colors and rugs in pleasing cottage color combinations.  Designing with color is a foundation element of any cottage style interior design.   We hope our color boards will help stimulate creative cottage decorating ideas by presenting both traditional and unexpected color combinations. All of the cottage color boards include sorting tags to help focus on a specific color, a specific decorating style or specific cottage room. Free color samples, fabric samples and rug samples are available from our color board designers.

Color Board: Sea and Sand

Building a room around a rug is a classic design mantra. To select one rug that pulls off just the right look – whether it be cottage style or even farmhouse formal – consider the texture, shape, size and palette. Bold solid colors or muted melanges, soft wool or versatile polypropylene or jute, traditional rectangles or eye-catching circles – these are all choices that can help steer your living room toward either cozy or dramatic. Our Cottage Home designers suggest laying out newspaper on the floor to simulate the size of the rug to help you pick the right dimensions. #seafoamgreen #natural http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Color Board: Teal and Grey

Combining teal and grey is a fail-safe way to add a beachy feel to any decor. A deep bluish-green sea of teal coexisting with a weathered wash of grey creates a soothing palette for any room in your cottage home. Bringing in a new piece of painted furniture, a punchy floor covering or even a whole wicker set can help overhaul a home needing a beach house-inspired makeover. #grey #teal #colorboard #cottagedecorating http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Color Board: Scarlet Fever

Paired with the white painted furniture of a cottage dining room or the earthy tones of a lodge living room, this deep red punctuates the neutrality of a room in a powerful yet poised way. Incorporating scarlet can be as easy as adding red throw pillows to a white slipcovered sofa, a square red floral tablecloth diagonally over the center of a long planked farmhouse table, or a red painted end table next to a whitewashed coffee table. #reds #aqua #southwestern #lodge http://thedistinctivecottage.com

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 http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Bridge the tonal gap with ivory or cream the two colors start to really connect. #browns #taupe #cottagelivingroom http://thedistinctivecottage.com
