Freshen up your soon-to-be-summer decor with a spritz of tangerine and a splash of teal – or any combination of your favorite spicy orange and refreshing blue-green. Picture a secluded and sun-baked citrus grove by the shimmering Mediterranean… To start up your thought process, we’ve pictured a few hues of orange above, from clementine to coral. Also – we admit that sometimes it’s hard to pick just one orange. All the fabric swatches above are from our Shoreline Cottage Style Fabrics collection, so browse for even more options.

The elegant backless sofa at center stage  – the Pepperrell Cove Upholstered Sofa – will instantly energize your beach house or cottage living room. With a salon-worthy silhouette and a name honoring a beautiful coastal Maine landmark, this piece has its own repertoire of fabric options available from our Summer House Upholstered Furniture collection.

Creating a simple and elegant coastal style nook is easy if you have the right pieces!  A nook is any small space in your home that is tucked away, where you can escape to read, write, or watch a movie.  The perfect nook has a little storage, a lot of comfortable seating, and sufficient lighting.

The media center has plantation shutter doors that enhance the coastal look, while also allowing for hidden storage, and is flanked by one of our all time favorite chairs.  The Sarasota chair is big enough to lounge in and oh so stylish.  The abstract coral fabric is such a great source of color in this tame and serene color scheme, while the neutral rug has an eye catching contrast design. 

Where is your favorite nook in your home?
