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 http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Inspiration Board: Splitting Chairs

Options for matching rugs with chairs are as wide open as your sense of adventure. A weathered bar stool with a farmhouse feel may suit a soft grey wool rug just as well as an urban chic white metal stool – the decision lies with your overall style goals. #stripedrugs #woodchairs #cottagelivingroom http://thedistinctivecottage.com

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 http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Inspiration Board: Making Spirits Bright

The holidays can overwhelm us with red, green and white. For mental health as well as variety, inject the mid-winter scene with alternative bright colors. From coppery brown and tangerine to scarlet and carnation pink, our lightweight Metal Bistro chairs can be brought out for a holiday party and paired with twinkling white lights and gold tulle ribbons. Or they can be more of a permanent fixture in your cottage decor if you are craving bright color year-round. #cottagediningroom #metaldiningchairs #reds #pinks #oranges http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Rooms to Love: Inside Out

As colder weather nears, we couldn’t decide whether we were more drawn to the idea of the comforts of indoors outside or the hallmarks of outdoors inside, so we married the two scenarios in our Rooms to Love. Equally appealing to the homebody in us all, the fireplaced farmhouse living room and lodge porch above both offer rusticity as well as small touches of welcome luxury. #cottagelivingroom #neutrals #rustic #lodgeporch http://thedistinctivecottage.com

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 http://thedistinctivecottage.com

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 http://thedistinctivecottage.com

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 http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Get the Look: Spanish Moss

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. #greens #naturals #cottagelivingroom http://thedistinctivecottage.com
