Make Your Room Look Extremely Beautiful in Cottage Style Living Rooms

For cottage style living rooms, select colours that make you feel comfortable when you enter your living room. Colours in cottages are muted to reflect the warm and relaxed nature of the style. Gold, green, yellow and blue are colours you will find in cottages. These colours come in many shades, ranging from buttery yellow to dusty rose. Use colours that are soothing as well as colours that match other aspects of your decor. Then for the sofa, choose a sofa with a relaxed attitude, such as an overstuffed style with a homey fabric like a floral, an awning or pillow tick stripe, or a nubby cotton. Look for big rolled arms and a cushioned back; wicker porch-style settees work well, too. Look for easy chairs that are in the same general style but don’t match – cottage style is eclectic. Keep the budget low with an Adirondack chair – just add cushions.

Go for casual lamp tables: Outdoor furniture can be painted white, stenciled or trimmed with painted-on flowers. Or look for wicker tables or spool and turned-spindle styles. The next step is set out traditional, low-key lamps with fabric shades in gingham or floral prints. Add a lamp with a wicker, terra-cotta or vintage-looking ceramic base, or consider candlestick lamps. For the window, hang window treatments that coordinate with the fabrics you’re using in your living room. Use them as pieces that will unify the room. Match drapes and accent pillows to create harmony. Striped curtains also work well with floral patterns with the same colours. To amplify the soothing nature of the look, go with fabric textures that are light and have some fluid motion to them. Also, hang old-style pictures in old-style frames. Look for quilts and collectible plates to hang on walls, too.

    These are horrible! How could one possibly sit quietly in one of these rooms and read a book? How could one around these rooms without having a dizzy spell and falling down? and white tile in kitchen and bath – fine, extremely attractive. This stuff – yoicks.

    @JessieMN Something I did was smaller tarps that fit cushions we have. I ran 1/2 elastic through the grommets, pulled them tight so in case the wind blew these tarps would on. I tie the ends of the elastic in a bow and when the sun comes out again.

Or the recently acquired quilt kit. Sigh. I wish I had a better arrangement to organize these things. Mainly so that they could be and displayed instead of a messy pile or shoved into bags.

    Be careful. We bought two dressers. They looked when they arrived in the summer, but now the wood is splitting rapidly. These are not “the occasional *”, they are now 12″ long and 1/4″ wide, all the through the wood. We are now discussing remediation with the company, but been told that we must pay for any transport of the pieces, whether for repair or replacement: a $150 proposition. Has anyone had experience with the quality of their repairs?

    @Khat I rub a of the soap I to bath with on my washcloth before I pull the in the tub to drain the bath water. I it on the edge of the tub, out, dry off, hang my towel up and then hasten the soapy washcloth all around the tub and rinse it. It occured to me one night that if my soap cleaned the dirt and oils off of me then surely it should the porcelain tub….and it does! I then wipe down the sink with the soapy washcloth and the toilet, swish the interior of the toilet with the brush, flush and there it is! A bathroom. I deposit the washcloth in the laundry room as I head to the front of the house. I only my Dawn and vinegar about once a week. I never to time deep cleaning the bathroom because it never gets a chance to catch dirty this way.

    Sooj, I meant to your ask? as well. I agree w/ the susan, but it is a built-into-the-wall shelf next to a brick fireplace. Tucked in a corner. I would need to extend the shelf platform out because it is only 11″ deep. The television is about 23″ in depth. It would be simple enough to * down an appropriately deep board to the shelf piece, but I am that despite the shelf being anchored to the wall, it may not the 100 lbs. of television. Hence my interest in a drawer of sorts with some metal joints for reinforcement. Does this help?
