Color Board: Sea and Sand

Building a room around a rug is a classic design mantra. To select one rug that pulls off just the right look – whether it be cottage style or even farmhouse formal – consider the texture, shape, size and palette. Bold solid colors or muted melanges, soft wool or versatile polypropylene or jute, traditional rectangles or eye-catching circles – these are all choices that can help steer your living room toward either cozy or dramatic. Our Cottage Home designers suggest laying out newspaper on the floor to simulate the size of the rug to help you pick the right dimensions. #seafoamgreen #natural http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Inspiration Board: In the Mix

Injecting a beach cottage feel in your home can be as easy as pairing a neutral duo such as silvery grey and sandy natural with seaborne hues like blues and greens. A mix of weathered grey and sand with aqua and deep sea blue brings to mind bleached driftwood set against a shimmering blue sky and ocean expanse. #aquas #greens #greys #cottagelivingroom http://thedistinctivecottage.com

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

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

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

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
