A Modern Take on Cottage Style
Whether you're far from the shore or have a waterfront view, nothing brings serenity quite like breezy cottage décor. From misty blues to pastel greens, a palette of soft neutrals is the base for this casual and comfortable decorating approach. Read on for three keys to bringing modern cottage style to any room.
Select a Soft Neutral Colour Scheme
A cottage-style colour palette should include light sandy colours mixed with warm-toned whites and peaceful shades of blue and green. Think our Rafe Toss in ivory and mist on the sofa, or our Crestview Cotton Throw in mist draped over the armchair. Since cottage-style interiors often have an eclectic look, a unifying colour palette will help tie the space together.
Decorating with Distressed & Reclaimed Wood
Cottage style is known for its character, so it's no surprise that the wood finishes used to achieve this look are full of character too! From reclaimed tables like our Anmoore Console
Table that features nail holes, patches and natural signs of weathering to our vintage-inspired collections with white-washed wood, distressed furniture brings a lived-in feel to any space.
Play Up Your Style with Patterns
Prints and patterns are key to completing your modern cottage aesthetic. By mixing florals with stripes, checkered and plaid textiles you can achieve an eclectic-yet-coordinated pillowscape on your sofa. Our favourite new arrivals include the Mira Toss, the Zoe Toss and the Hartman Toss in velvet to bring casual elegance to your modern cottage aesthetic.
