Rooms To Love: Sitting Room Serenity

Serenity abounds in this beach house sitting room with an expansive water view. White fabric and gleaming tiles play against the warm earthen brown tones of the rustic wooden fireplace hearth and wrapped twig chairs. Incorporating elements such as a jute rug and rattan furniture along with a cottage slipcovered sofa  can help to create a coastal yet slightly exotic decor. #beachhouse #coastallivingroom #sittingroom http://thedistinctivecottage.com

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

Color Board: Teal and Grey

Combining teal and grey is a fail-safe way to add a beachy feel to any decor. A deep bluish-green sea of teal coexisting with a weathered wash of grey creates a soothing palette for any room in your cottage home. Bringing in a new piece of painted furniture, a punchy floor covering or even a whole wicker set can help overhaul a home needing a beach house-inspired makeover. #grey #teal #colorboard #cottagedecorating http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Rooms to Love: Nautical Mix Bedroom

Navy and white chevron throw pillows bring to mind ship signal flags, but can also fit with a southwestern style rug’s primitive design. A wood and rope chandelier bridges industrial and nautical elements in any room. Go ahead and showcase a mix of rarely-linked decor sensibilities. #bluebedrooms #nauticaldecor #industrial 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

Rooms to Love: Neat Neutrality

A coastal cottage living room turned out in soothing neutral tones like the one above provides a welcome everyday retreat. The added beauty of this room is that its low-profile disposition serves as the perfect foundation for changing seasonal decor. Just as natural elements like smooth stones on the hearth and seagrass upon the mantel add a coastal twist to this comfy cottage style, this room could easily be readied for Thanksgiving guests with some gourds and corncobs. #neutrals #naturals http://thedistinctivecottage.com
