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

Color Board: Taupe & Honey

Sliding into autumn, the grey-brown bark of a silent oak topped by startling golden and caramel leaves prompts us to explore an infrequent pairing: taupe and honey. Taupe, exudes a steely sophistication, while honey triggers a primal warmth on sight. Bridge the tonal gap with ivory or cream the two colors start to really connect. #browns #taupe #cottagelivingroom http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Inspiration Board: Citrus Cooler

Casting a tropical temperament over your cottage living room is easy by introducing some citrus green. Citrus green calls to mind palm fronds, exotic parrots and even lime-infused drinks, serving as a perfect mood booster. When the warmer days start slipping away, the blow can be softened by recreating a summery environment inside. #greens #whites #cottagelivingroom thedistinctivecottage.com
