MAKE IT MONOCHRO­MATIC

For a more up­scale vibe, keep your col­ors sooth­ing, serene and sim­ple. Gray, cream and a steely blue com­bine in this liv­ing room to bal­ance easy, time­less hues with just enough color to feel warm and invit­ing.

BRING A MIX OF STYLES

The com­bi­na­tion of con­tem­po­rary and rus­tic styles with an­tiques gives this space its charm­ing cot­tage makeup. Cu­rat­ing your ac­cents, ac­ces­sories and an­chor pieces rather than shop­ping from one source al­lows you to de­sign a space that tells your story and re­flects your per­son­al­ity.

THE COL­LECTED LOOK

Dis­play­ing your col­lec­tions gives a room in­ter­est and vi­brancy. The cof­fee ta­ble is not only the cen­ter of the room in this ar­range­ment; it’s also full of art­fully ar­ranged books. In ad­di­tion to the unique el­e­ments that cre­ate a vi­gnette on the back con­sole ta­ble, the room feels full of his­tory.

OPEN & AIRY

The cot­tage vibe is all about a con­nec­tion with na­ture. Along with the rus­tic ta­ble and col­lectibles, the wide floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows pull the outdoors in. Keep your win­dow cov­er­ing easy and breezy to make that view the star.

Clas­sic style with cot­tage ap­peal— that’s what the blend

of all the el­e­ments brings to this room.

If you’re look­ing for a so­phis­ti­cated take on cot­tage liv­ing, con­sider a few trends that have proven stay­ing power in de­sign to­day and frame them with some tried and true tra­di­tions that cap­ture the cot­tage life­style. Here

are our fa­vorite el­e­ments from this room.
