It’s hard to resist deep ocean-borne blue and green hues against crisp white, washing a wave of relaxation over your decor.  In addition to the mood-altering power of these colors, the swatches above all share the mod sensibility of the go-go era.  These retro patterns intrigue us, ranging from the rambling paisley of the Algura Denim Fabric to the Danish mod Lona Plantation Fabric  to the psychedelic Carousel Ocean Fabric.  And with a nod to the mid-century preoccupation with all things Asian, the Cove Indigo Fabric and Cove Pool Fabric offer a bamboo trellis effect.

These indigo and teal-based fabrics are all from our Shoreline Slipcovered Furniture collection, and are 100% cotton and machine-washable. Please browse our other Shoreline fabrics, all available priced by the yard, and of course available on any slipcovered or upholstered Shoreline piece. In any event, outfit your cottage or beach house with some of these fab fabrics.

Do you incorporate retro touches into your cottage decor?

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.

When you love pattern and color it can be hard to decide where to play it up and when to tone it down in your cottage home.  Today’s Rooms to Love is a great example of how color and style can live together in a balanced and harmonious way.  

This fabulous living room is home to style blogger Micheal Wurm, Jr. who wanted this space to be colorful, yet not too intense, so as not to distract from the beautiful architecture.  He chose a neutral gray for the walls, which is light enough to blend into the background, and a crisp white to highlight the amazing architectural details in the space, like the built-in bookcases, crown molding, and decorative mantel.  He also chose a light charcoal gray for the sofa and chair, again to build a neutral foundation in the space.  

Now that the stage had been set, he chose textiles and accessories in a myriad of patterns and colors to bring the space to life.  The largest source of color, and the main focal point, is the modern flag print area rug.  Everything else in the space, like the puff ottomans, throw pillows, wire baskets, and small accessories, pick up the hues found in the rug including royal blue, electric yellow, and fire engine red.

What is your favorite color found in this unique and creative space?
