Make Your Cottage A Cozy Getaway
Choosing the right furniture, fixtures, paint colours and finishes can go a long way when it comes to creating the cozy cottage of your dreams. Curating the perfect cozy cottage is all about showcasing your cottage’s original features, mixing in an eclectic blend of handmade or antique wooden furniture and bringing in the colours and textures of the great outdoors.
Mix and match furniture
Plenty of antique, handmade or wooden furniture is a true cottage staple. Using wood furniture in a natural setting, like a lakeside cottage, connects a place to its surroundings and adds loads of character. Updating vintage pieces with chalk furniture paint can add some perfect old-meets-new flare to your cottage.
Take inspiration from your surroundings
Using natural colours like forest greens, rich reds, muted beiges and greys for your furniture, paint colours and rugs are great ways to pull the colours and textures of cottage country into your cabin.
Lean into nostalgia
Embrace classic Canadiana throughout your cottage and decorate with canoe paddles, stone, deer antlers, and plenty of flannel to evoke a classic “cabin by the lake” vibe.
When it comes down to it, your cottage should feel like your home away from home. Whether you prefer a beachside paradise or a rustic cabin in the woods atmosphere, there are plenty of ways to show of your personality in your cottage.
