My Style Series : Cozy Cottage

So, yesterday I shared my super dirty, cluttered basement with you.  Sorry I was a bit dramatic about it, but I had had enough and I just couldn’t handle it anymore!  Now that the scariness of sharing that awful space is over, I’d like to share some inspiration for the room.  These photos really feel “cottage-y” to me.  I can tell more and more as I figure out my design likes and dislikes that I’m really leaning toward the cottage look.  It just gets me every time!  :)

Now that I have all of these inspiration photos together, I can start to see what brings them all together.  

* Lots of whites and light colors!  I love the airy look of very light paint colors.  

* I love the last two photos for an entirely different reason.  They exude a coziness, and despite the dark wall color, the room still gives you a soft feeling because of the accent colors and textures that were used.

* Layering, lots and lots of layering.  I tend to keep things a bit more simple in my home because I hate cleaning – especially with two young kids and 3 pets!  But I can see how layering a room really adds interest and dimension!  It really makes the room feel more lived in.

* Definitely some sort of wood wall treatment.  Bead board, planked walls, and board and batten are all very cottage-y.  They can really give a room character and definition without costing a ton of money.

* Finally, a bit of whimsy.  Be it in wallpaper, wall art, or light fixtures, whimsy brings a personal touch and keeps things lighthearted.  Just how you’d want to feel in a cottage!

    Now this looks more like your home, I can definitely see any space in your home looking like these rooms, very nice! After looking at your blog post earlier, these seem very very relaxing! :)

    Everything looks so bright. You immediately feel more cheerful, you seem to be uplifted! And the darker rooms make you feel warm and cozy. Great finds I am anxious to see how you interpret for you.
