Down time is vital for maintaining a positive attitude and good health, and soothing surroundings can make all the difference in your ability to unwind. Generous and comfortable seating, attractive painted furniture with storage to put clutter out of sight, and appealing color and texture choices can all make your home an easier place in which to relax. Mixing an earthy color such as golden ochre with beachy sea-inspired colors gives an added element of depth to nudge you into a contemplative mood. Woven wicker patterns and chunky rugs may put you in mind of a cozy cottage in which you once spent a pleasant sabbatical.
Above is a sampling of cottage style furniture – wicker, painted and stained – along with a durable braided rug with an updated palette. Two veranda style pieces from our Cottage Wicker Furniture collection are appropriate for either your covered porch or living room, depending upon where you prefer to unwind. They have a definite personality but are still easy to mix with other wicker and wood furniture. The Westside Stained Rocker is a sure way to add relaxation to your routine, and it comes in several stained, painted and antiqued options. The slender turnings of the rocker are echoed in the Montserrat Side Table, a stylishly compact piece from our new Islands Collection. And finally, one of our many wall art offerings – the Azure Sky Canvas Giclee – blends faultlessly with our Habitat Fountain Blue Braided Indoor/Outdoor Rug.
