Cottage furniture doesn’t have to be boring – in fact, the cottage is the perfect spot to embrace styles and colors that you love but don’t quite fit into your home! The cottage is also a great place to play with color and pattern if you’re nervous to do so at home!
The laid back, relaxed environment of most cottages lends itself to some recurring design trends as well.
NATURAL MATERIALS Natural materials that blend well with the outdoor environment are a popular choice for the cottage. This may include wood, metal, natural linens, stone and the like.
TEXTURED FINISHES Textured fabrics, hammered metals, carved details and other texture-building finishes are a great choice for the cottage, adding a cozy, welcoming feel to the space.
VINTAGE STYLE Both true retro pieces and new pieces with vintage inspired details are used to create a feeling of childhood nostalgia at the cottage.
