Cottage Style in the Bedroom

10963164_SCottage style is great for creating a warm and inviting bedroom. The bedroom pictured here has a lovely winter white painted bed and shabby chic bed linens that create a lovely, light bed that suits the space. The walls covered in this patterned wallpaper add tons of cottage charm to the room.

Cottage style combines vintage and feminine accents with comfortable furniture.  The winter white painted bed and desk used as a nightstand are not matching pieces but the color of the paint unites them. Keeping the bedding simple, but layering it with different textures and patterns makes for a beautifully made bed.  A pair of small table lamps would provide bedside lighting for both sides of the bed when the curtains aren’t drawn back. Despite being made up of vintage and mismatched pieces, the furniture in this bedroom feels like a suite because of the similar color.

One cottage element lacking in this space is something soft on the floor. Two small runners flanking the bed would provide a soft place to land your feet in the morning. Area rugs and runners are a great place to add another layer of texture or a spot of color. They could be similar in color to the floor or pick up the white from the furniture and bedding.
