First off, what is "costal cottage"? This design is contemporary, cozy, bright and casual, however that does not mean it is boring! If you want to enter your room and feel relaxed, this may be your style choice. Here are some ways to achieve that look:
1. Add wool or canvas
Wool, canvas, and denim are materials that can achieve this warm and cozy feel. This hand woven area rug is a great option, or this Natural Basket Weave Jute Rug will do the trick (none of these are sponsored in any way).
2. Find a throw pillow that is sandy white, washed blue, rosy red, mustard yellow, or olive color
Organic elements/ colors are the name of the game! Keep your eyes pealed for these colors in your decor items. You can find the pillows to the right, here.
3. Incorporate linens and soft cottons or knits
Who doesn't love snuggling up on the sofa with a big, knit blanket? This is a practical as well as beautiful piece to add to your living space.
4. Choose light and weathered wood
Whether this is in your furniture or decor, try to find ways to add light, weathered wood. You can use raw objects from nature if you are on a budget, like fresh greens or driftwood. This table can be found at World Market!
5. Add ceramics, natural stone, or nautical elements
Ceramics, natural stone, or nautical elements will give your space a calming and natural vibe.
Would you rather have a bed and breakfast in the countryside or small cottage on the ocean? Using these tips, you can achieve that look anywhere!
