5 Steps To Country Cottage Style

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

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

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

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.

Each year autumn stretches its limbs and emerges from the heat of summer, bringing with it crisp air and cool nights.
While each passing season brings along change, fall comes as a refreshing awakening. Old time traditions of apple picking, pumpkin carving, and enjoying a warm beverage are revisited with a renewed enthusiasm.
2015’s fall home décor trends play into this idea of celebrating the past and making it feel as fresh again.

Greys

Grey Home Decor for Fall

Images from LillaVillaVita.blogspot.com, Elle.com, and Brewster.

Grey is a trend that has been seen in fashion for a few seasons now, and it has definitely seeped into the home décor world. Grey has become a fresh palette that is anything but boring. The cool toned cousin of traditional black is the perfect soft color for fall.

Vintage Pastels

 Similar to the grey trend, pale vintage colors and textures are becoming the new neutrals. No longer are we confined to taupe, black, and white, the new neutrals come in pale seagreens, blush pinks, and muted indigos.
These color palettes create a romantic aesthetic in a space. Calming yet warm, pretty yet approachable, the perfect feminine design trend that isn’t overwhelming to  a space.

Chunky Knits

Chunky Knits for Fall

Knits have always been a Fall/Winter classic, but this year the knits are bigger than ever. Larger than life textiles are making their way into blankets, cushions, and wall murals.
The huge textures are taking this classic pattern and reviving it in a modern way that  embraces the  history of the knitting technique.

 Rustic Textures

Rustic and industrial home décor has been big for a few seasons now, but it goes especially well with fall color palettes. Warm browns and honey-hued golds match seamlessly with the changing leaves, gourd center pieces, and a bowl of freshly picked apples.
Whether you prefer a more polished Edison bulb, or a weathered metal sign, this trend has something for everyone.
