This week’s cottage decorating color board boasts cheerful colors and whimsical prints that would be ideal in a cottage or coastal style home.  Mixing yellow, aqua, and cast iron create a dominating palette full of life, personality and spunk.  Depending on how rustic you want the space to feel, we have suggested the same three colors in two different paint finishes.  The top row features our Country Classics collection paints that have a very lightly rubbed finish for a cleaner look.  The bottom row features our Lake House collection paints which boast heavily distressed paint finishes that are worn away to the wood for an aged look.  Or you can mix and match finishes for an eclectic style!

Which set of finishes do you prefer for a cottage or coastal style home?

If you like charcoal gray, than you will love this week’s cottage style decorating color board!  The palette offers subdued hues of ashy gray and blue, and we added a nice kick of lemon to keep it lively.  The transitional style of the rug pairs nicely with the contemporary fabric prints, and the entire look would suit a formal living area perfectly. 

On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you adore gray?

SW#0078 Sunbeam Yellow SW#7006 Extra White SW#6119 Antique White SW#7023 Requisite Gray

The soft neutrals of this cottage kitchen colors combination never gets old because there are so many hues to explore.  This combination is soft and quiet, bringing light and happiness into this stunning kitchen.  Though the wall color and upper cabinets are both white, they are in different hues to create contrast:  the walls are a warmer creamy white, whereas the cabinets have more of a gray undertone.  This is a renovation done by designer Sarah Richardson, who brought a modern appeal to an old country farmhouse.

What a combination of two completely different, yet complementary, colors!  The sunshine effect of the yellow and the sophistication of the grey make for a refined decorative concept. The pieces contained in this inspiration board would be perfect for a study, living room, family room, or bedroom.  The simplicity and clean lines of the armoire, bedside table, and rug add elegance, while the upholstered armchair provides a burst of pattern.  Add some great accent lamps and wall decor and you have a breathless and inviting place that you’re sure to never want to leave.

Color Board: Grey & Yellow

Cottage color combinations can be bold and graphic or soft and neutral – that’s for you to decide!  Not sure if you can live with bold?  Try a striking yellow on a lamp or throw; accessories can be more easily replaced than furniture.
