If you are wanting to achieve the cottage-style look in your home but not sure where to start, this blog is for you. 

Let's begin with the entry of your home, you want your guests to be in awe from the minute they walk in the door. Make them literally stop in their tracks to take in this space. If you have a ton of light to work with in the front of your home don't be afraid to incorporate a dramatic color mixed with rustic natural woods and your favorite antique pieces to really add the wow factor to this space. 

Moving into the heart of the home, you need to make it inviting, cozy and charming. If you have a breakfast nook or formal dining room try to add a fun accent to your counter seating by incorporating a rustic pair of wooden stools or a set of antique bar stools to add a bit of rustic charm. In your living room pick out a comfortable preferably neutral-colored sofa paired with antique chairs or lounges. Tie in splashes of color and charm by adding wallpaper, floral curtains, decretive pillows, and lots of books. Complete the look by adding a personal touch and showcase your family portraits, particularly vintage images or silhouetted ones.  

Your cottage bedroom should be intimate and welcoming. You want to feel like you are at a retreat, the place you retire to for the evening and feel nothing but bliss and comfort. The bedding needs to be comfortable with a lot of pillows and snug throw blankets, include lamps on your side tables to have comfortable lighting in the evenings, and add a nice reading nook in your room to cozy up and enjoy a good book and relax from the busy of the day. 

 We can guarantee if you incorporate these tips into your home decor your home will feel like the perfect cottage getaway!
