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

Inspiration Board: Lake House Bedroom

What better way to rest after a long day hiking, swimming, or fishing than in a cozy cabin bedroom? The stately bed sets the tone for the fantastic rustic theme seen throughout the lake house bedroom, while the accent colors of warm brown, red, and blue reflect the woodsy atmosphere found outdoors. A kaleidoscope of earth tones are found in the braided rug, which enhance the warm and inviting feel of this restful room. And don’t forget the adorable moose accent pillow that adds a dose of country charm!

Rooms To Love: Cozy Daybed

What a lovely spot for a quiet afternoon! The dusty blues and roses are beautifully blended with pale creams and yellows to create a distinctive cottage look. The iron bed frame is a classic country style, and is tailored nicely with the quilted box cover. Adding the chipped painted mantle piece above the daybed is a great way to display old frames and pictures for a vintage flair.
