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

Rooms to Love: Rising Tide

As the unofficial end of the summer season draws near, we aren’t quite ready to let go… and this converted attic room is just the remedy. Covering the main barnboard wall are paintings of grand ships asail. salty old skippers, technical sketches and silhouettes. The shipshape sofa creates an unassuming base for comfort while retro and refined matching tufted seats provide a seating twist. #coastallivingroom #cottagelivingroom #converetedattic #nautical decor #blueandwhite thedisctinctivecottage.com

Inspiration Board: Regatta Have It

The Regatta Stripe Indoor/Outdoor Rug captures the best of summer in its bold navy, cornflower, red and white stripes. Bringing to mind the open seas, crisp white sails and nautical pennants whipping in the wind, it looks dashing both with a leather sofa and ottoman bench and in an edgy kitchen with steel and wood pieces. #blues #reds #nautical #stripedrug http://thedistinctivecottage.com
