Sugar, spice, and everything nice

Cottage style, like most, is a balancing act between yin and yang – the Sugar, the spice, and everything nice. Cottage colour palettes, generally, balance the sweetness of colours with charming decor choices. The cottage aesthetic accentuates original features.  The aged fireplace,  rustic woodwork, and high ceilings add character.  To improve your cottage aesthetic contemplate styling the original features.


Historical Beauty

Do you want your cottage style to have character? Think about adding an older piece of furniture with a historical background. Salvaged historical pieces add to the nostalgia and aesthetic of the environment. Refurbished, worn, and vintage pieces add to the uniqueness and charm of a property.

Cottage style is often a reflection of the designer’s depiction of beautiful. This style illustrates happiness within yourself and manifests it in a creative light. A monochromatic style represents serenity and stillness. Whereas, a colourful environment can illustrate a variety of emotional responses.
