Cottage Style Color Boards

Our cottage style color boards present a variety of fabric, paint colors and rugs in pleasing cottage color combinations.  Designing with color is a foundation element of any cottage style interior design.   We hope our color boards will help stimulate creative cottage decorating ideas by presenting both traditional and unexpected color combinations. All of the cottage color boards include sorting tags to help focus on a specific color, a specific decorating style or specific cottage room. Free color samples, fabric samples and rug samples are available from our color board designers.

Color Board: Rise & Shine!

We had a blast creating this week’s cottage style color board, because of the medley of colors that the Rise and Shine rug has to offer! That is the beauty of starting your design scheme with a rug that offers so many colors to work with. You have the option of playing up the strong strawberry red, or the pale powder blue, depending on what kind of overall feel you want to create. We decided to use all of the colors found in the rug to really create a bold and brazen look. #decoratingwithcolor #colorboard #paintedfurniture http://thedistinctivecottage.com

Color Board: Embracing Autumn

This time of year you want your cottage home to be a retreat from the chilly air outside.  We recommend introducing copper, persimmon, and golds into your decor to create a strong sense of warmth and comfort.  The featured rug boasts a variety of golds and rusts, and is a great jumping off point for an inviting palette.  We suggest a mixture of soft solids, relaxed linens, and weathered leather for a texturally interesting combination.
