What do you think of when you think of
The Cottage Touch?
I just think of a space that says home sweet home.
Cottage Style has many different faces and today we are just going to look at a few simple ways to add a bit of cottage charm into a room with eaze.
All of the 5 pictures today are brought to you by
I started my search there and didn’t leave…I think it could be a first…I usually search over 100 blogs: )…but they were all so perfect I wanted to share.
Nothing says cottage like paneled white board walls…they just do so much for a room and gives the space a special feel. Then by simply adding a painted piece of furniture…be it new or vintage…you just can’t loose. This space has a cottage fresh feel with it’s crisp white walls…wonderful painted piece of furniture…comfy pillows and then that little vintage VW bus and flowers…just can’t get much cuter than that!
Maybe it is a beach cottage look you would like! Here’s a great example on how simple it is …a drift wood mirror…maybe you would enjoy a shell one or a mirror made with nautical rope…you can think of the mirror as sort of the anchor for the design of the space. Then there is the white washed piece of furniture that just makes you feel like you have been lifted by a wave. Now when it comes to beach cottage…you can never ever go wrong with the color aqua and these lamps are perfect along with the little embellishments on the table. What is great about this look is you can change it up with a new mirror and embellishments and you will have a completely new cottage feel.
Talk about FRESH!!! Do you know what is one of the Cottage lovers best friends in a living room or family room? Slipcovers! Makes living with white a lot easier since you can wash it and you can always change things up too! This white couch is a blank canvas for all of your creativity and change of moods. This space reflects a nautical look…but with the change of the pillows…a different vignette you will have a completely different look and feel…in NO time! The possibilities are endless.
Another thing that says cottage is bead board…here you can see it has been added to the wonderful window seat. It looks great on walls…cabinets and yes…ceilings! In this space the main decorations are vintage plates. Vintage plates or just fabulous new plates simply look amazing on the wall…you can design your own pattern…reflect your personality…maybe even display family heirlooms…whatever you choose…the cottage charm will bloom.
You can also see that with the right colors…you can mix toile…stripes…gingham checks and solids together and they work in complete harmony. The beautiful wood floors are the icing on the cake. Any one of these elements will add a touch of cottage to your room : )
Comfy…cozy…quaint…fresh and oh so charming!
This space has so many fabulous elements I don’t know where to begin. First we have that wonderful painted white board floor…kissed with a throw rug. Then we have a vintage bench with a touch of vintage added with the wicker pocketbook. Then painted vintage furniture in two different treatments in shades of green. The chair has a great cushion that compliments the bedding. Oh and then there is the bed…layered with amazing goodness. All the colors from the floral painting are brought out by the pillow accents…this room is truly a work of art. Everything here is different but again…works perfectly together. I am crushing on this room!
