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

Rooms to Love: Urban Cottage Dining Room

Life in an apartment or an urban space can still hold the charm of a country cottage when elements such as white painted barnboard walls and unfinished wood floors are given free rein. Displaying everyday staples such as crusty bread, terra cotta vessels and bottles of wine on unfinished shelves taps into a comfortingly familiar utilitarian beauty. #cottagediningroom #pastels #whites #built-ins thedistinctivecottage.com

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 http://thedistinctivecottage.com

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
