Country Cottage Decorating Ideas

White slipcovered chair and sofa, round rattan coffee table, sunflower wall canvas, sunflower pillows, and a table clock.

Follow These Five Decorating Ideas to Create a Cottage Feel in Your Home

Dreaming of an escape to the country? Bring all the cozy welcoming elements of cottage living to your space and escape every day. Maybe it’s the comfy unpretentiousness. Maybe it’s because we instantly feel right at home. Whatever it is, it’s no wonder that country cottage style seems to be universally adored.

Stay in Neutral

A neutral color palette is a must. Keep the mix in whites, creams and tans. Need a shot of color? A white couch slipcover looks great against a soft lavender wall. Add accents in floral tones, such as a sunflower yellow, periwinkle blue or mossy green.

 

Decorative Ceiling Light

Think Cozy

Thick quilts, plenty of pillows and easygoing family-friendly slipcovers can bring country charm to a family room or guest room in an instant. Don’t forget cozy lighting too – light up the room with decorative lights and add candles to set the mood.

Sunflower Wall Art

Add Rustic Elements

Country charm never feels stuffy or formal, so break out those rustic accent pieces like a metal stool as a bedside table, or hang iron lanterns in a corner. A distressed piece of wall art adds a nice finishing touch.

Living Room Table

Be a Natural

Choose accent pieces that have an organic appeal to keep the mood welcoming and relaxed. Use a warm, organic rattan coffee table in lieu of a traditional living room table. Throw thick, textured rugs throughout a room to encourage slippers and barefeet.

 Decorative Throw Pillows

Enjoy Simple Treasures

Country charm usually shows off just a few simple accent pieces. Pick a simple vase that holds only a stem or two, a lovely little table clock or decorative throw pillows. Let your own unique personality guide you.
