Color Board: Chocolate, Citrus & Jade

The Whimsy Stratosphere fabric was the inspiration for the chocolate, citrus, and jade color board. The overall look for a room using this palette can be influenced by which stripe you choose – want a more bold look? Go with the Cayman Aqua stripe. Looking for a more subdued scheme? Then the View Seaspray stripe is for you. Have a larger area to coordinate? Include both! The sea foam, clay, and citrus paint colors can be used on furniture or walls to complete the room(s). #cottagestyle #colorboard #slipcoveredfurniture #cottagefurniture http://thedistinctivecottage.com

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.
