5 Steps To Country Cottage Style

cottage

Image via Pinterest

Dreamy meadows, pastel hues, sunny mornings sipping tea on a secluded porch. The cottage lifestyle is one of slow serenity, ensconced in the time honored comforts of home.
Time moves a little slower. The light stays a little longer. The birds sing a little sweeter.

Our cottage style wallpaper is a memorable mix of old and new, where heirloom treasures harmonize with modern life. This beautiful assortment of fresh florals, vintage French prints, and shabby chic inspirations is full of picture perfect charm.

  1. Statement Furniture

StatementFurniture

Images via Pinterest

Antique statement furniture is a way to immediately set the tone for a room. You can decorate the entire space around one piece by making it a focal point, or by pulling in other items to match the style.

2. Vintage Accessories

VintageAccessories

Images via Pinterest

Vintage accessories are an easy way to complete the look of a room. Classic cameras, delicate teacups, leather bound books, and antique suitcases add ambience and visual cues as to the mood of the room. A touch of whimsy and a hint of imperfection sets cottage style apart from French Provincial decor.

3. Beautiful Wallpaper

CottageWallpaper2

Wallpaper from The Cottage collection

One of the most impactful ways to give your home a country cottage makeover is with a beautiful wallpaper. Beautiful florals and toiles are classic patterns that will maintain their style for years to come.

4. A Little Sparkle

A crystal chandelier, a glass door knob, or a jeweled necklace carefully placed add just a touch of glamour. You can go as big or small as you like, just enough to catch the light.

5. Fresh Flowers

Not only will fresh flowers look beautiful, they’ll make your room smell amazing. Their aromatherapy properties will make for a relaxing environment, which is really what cottage style is about: enjoying the simple moments when the light filters through the window, when cookies come fresh out of the oven, when you have time to sit down and read the book you bought three years ago.

More to Love About Fall on The First Day of October

October has arrived—although we’re not entirely sure how because it feels like September just started. It has been a rainy week here and with it has come cool air. Despite the sudden appearance of October, we’re embracing this new month. We’ve been drinking mugs of hot tea, lighting apple scented candles, and taking our boots out of the back of the closet.

Read on for some of the other things we can’t wait to do now that fall is really here.

Go on Nature Hikes

It’s finally cool enough to go outside without immediately sweating profusely. Take advantage of the fresh air and go on a nature walk or hike this weekend. Foliage season is just around the corner and the forest will be a vibrant oasis.

Spend Time Reading

Reading is a year-round activity, but it is especially nice to curl up on the couch with a cup of tea, a blanket, and a good book and spend a rainy sunday escaping to another world. If you’re looking for an entertaining home decor book, we recommend A Perfectly Imperfect Home by Deborah Needleman. It’s full of great tips and beautiful illustrations.

Knit a Pillow

If you’re learning know to knit, the typical first project is usually a scarf. But, why not go a little wider and a little shorter and make a pillow? Then when someone complements this new decor addition, you can proudly say that you made it yourself.
If you’re a more advanced knitter, a pillow is the perfect project to practice new stitches or techniques.

Decorate With Pumpkins

Who says pumpkins have to live outside? Make pumpkins part of your interior decor by matching them to your personal style. Paint them different colors, cover them in lace, add a bit of sparkle, or leave them as is.

Plaid Everything

6 Signs Preppy is Your Look

That look that declares I’ve just stepped off my yacht, I’m interning in Washington DC this year, Summer on Marthas Vineyard, brunch at the country club, horse back riding lessons, let’s go to the Berkshires next weekend and play tennis soon. Blazers, riding boots, v-neck sweaters, layered Oxfords with vests, plaid skirts, Hunter boots, popped collars, pastels and white, and varsity letter jackets. These ivy-league nods and collegiate styles are more than just a trend. Here’s 6 ways to tell if preppy is your lifestyle look.

1. Stripes and plaid are your go-to prints. These classics, evoking button up shirts and private school uniforms, are comfortable and timeless preppy motifs.

Preppy Style Guide for preppy decor

2. You cannot get enough fine books, specifically hardcover, and leather bound. Books should be collected, displayed, passed down, read, and re-read. Having a whole library with a sliding ladder is best practice,  but stacks and shelves will do until you can curate a proper space for your atheneum.

Preppy Style

Books are a pillar of preppy style, Images via Pinterest, Brewster Home Fashions

3. When in doubt, red, white & navy blue are always the best answer.

4. You spend summers sailing, by the sea, or perhaps a lake, so you appreciate all things nautical. Sailboat motifs, sea shells, rope accents, driftwood, linen, anything blue and white, and anchors are all lovely nods to leisurely beach days and adventurous boat outings.

5. Pink and green should always go together, Lily Pulitzer style. There is something quintessentially preppy about the happy splash of tropical print in a pink and green palette.

6. Monograms and crests belong on everything, of course! Custom towels, soaps, bed linens, pillows, framed artwork, your sweater… there is no limit to that which should be emblazoned with your monogram or family crest.

Designing a Den with Retro Mod Appeal

A Mad Men Inspired Decor

Don’t you just love the word den? It has such a cozy connotation. A den can be a mix between a living room and an office, and it also can serve as a man cave. When decorating in a den, you want to be sure that the furnishings are an inviting mix of comfort and style. Our dream den du jour would have a Mad Men feel, where mid century modern elements mixed with traditional pieces in a rich palette of reds and golds and deep wood finishes.
Mad Men Inspired Den Retro Mod Man Cave with Vintage Picks from Chairish

We created a style board for our den featuring an eclectic mix of old and new. Have you heard of Chairish? It is an online consignment shop where design-obsessed people can buy and sell exceptional pre-owned home furnishings. It is a fabulous place to find authentic vintage furniture and search for groovy one-of-a-kind pieces. How fabulous is that vintage 1940s slipper chair?! We found it on Chairish, along with all of the other vintage items in this board. With a low, mid century modern dresser as a credenza, and the Atheneum Antique Books wallpaper from the Oxford Mens wallpaper collection, the room has a distinguished air of intellect and sophistication. The traditional Persian rug adds a layer of comfort and global chic warmth. For accessories we chose a  vintage George Nelson walnut spike wall clock and a brass globe, both from Chairish as well. The library style floor lamp looks like it could be vintage but it is from Jonathan Adler’s new lighting collection. Finallhy, the potted ficus brings a fresh touch of life to the room so that the space will never feel lonely. Below are a few more dens that we love for inspiration!

Color and Home Decor Trends from Maison et Objet

Decor Ideas and Color Trends 2014

This September, the theme at Maison et Objet was Sharing. This uplifting theme explores the new ways that we grow as a creative community, networking and collaborating through the generous share and like icons of the digital age. We love this positive perspective on how our modern lives can benefit from the social tools of the digital world. As always, the designs at this Paris show wowed with a global mix of gorgeous colors, textures, styles, inspirations and innovations.

Organic Wood: Wood has always been a building staple, it is truly a timeless material. However, trends of the day reveal their tendencies in the finish of the wood, whether it is painted, stained, dark, rustic, or glossy. This year natural and unfinished wood, especially in light colors, as well as distressed and vintage wood looks dominated decor exhibits at Maison.

Heavy Metal and Warm Copper: Gleaming metals were adding an embellished brilliance to furniture, walls, objets d’art, lighting and tableware. Bronze and copper were especially prominent, bringing a burnished tawny glow to all sorts of lovely items. We have observed copper hues trending for a few seasons now, and the movement has continued to grow with luminous success.

Typography & Words: An important theme, one focused on by Maison et Objet themselves, is the notion of letters and words as art. “Writing is becoming a pictorial object that is filling spaces, surfaces and materials. Graphic and typographic effects are writing a feast of words that communicates with poetry and meaning and revives our social bonds” -Elizabeth Leriche This creative expression in the face of advancing digital lives can be seen in typography, and hand-written words as prints and artistic embellishments.

Color Spirit: The colors that captivated designers this year included an abundance of pretty midtone pastels with pops of bright accents like chartreuse. Blue and white were also especially prominent. Shibori indigo, delft porcelain blue, and vivid cobalt paired with crisp whites added a fresh yet classic contrast to walls, textiles, ceramics, accessories and floors.

Industrial Chic: Playing on the popularity of upcycling and DIY decor, distressed textures and factory inspired items were mixed in with gorgeous designs for a gritty-chic edge. Packing crates and practical items, like lockers, tools, and exposed light bulbs were found in unexpected design layouts for a touch of rebellion against convention. The items were often embellished with a fresh coat of paint or a metallic touch, accenting their raw industrial forms with a splashy detail. The winner of the Maison et Objet designer of the Year, in fact, was Tom Dixon, an industrial designer rose to fame with welded salvage furniture and “instantaneous factory” inspired designs.

Fall Color Report: Warm Cognac

Walls to couches, skirts, coats and headboards, cognac adds a warm energy to fashion as well as home décor (images from top left: Pantone.com, Pottery Barn, Brewster Home Fashions, Milk Magazine, Pinterest & Style.com)

Where brown is seen as dull, cognac is seen as glamorous! This warm, classy hue brings to mind autumnal bliss, where colorful leaves, cozy knits and days spent by the fire all lay at the forefront of our minds. So it’s no surprise that this toasty shade, reminding us of not only a steaming cup of coffee but our favorite pair of leather boots, has won a place on the Fall 2014 Pantone Fashion Color Report.

A perfect pair to so many colors, you might even call it a neutral! It has the ability to make black seem not so harsh, while also being able to bring out the true beauty of a vibrant red without making it too overbearing (as seen above). There are not many colors you can truly say this about, that can work so fluently alongside others while also being able to stand alone brilliantly!

What is seen in fashion can also transition over to the home décor market. From warm leather sofas, stand out headboards, vintage accessories and cultured brown walls, cognac creates an interior that is stylish and chic as well as pleasant and enjoyable to live in. Whether it is the main focus of a room or subtle addition, adding in touch of this feel-good color provides your home with a comfortable living space.

The beauty of Cognac, is that it seems to break all the rules. It not only compliments black, but it looks great with white, even better with color, and yes, it even looks fabulous on its own! This is definitely one color we can get used to!
