Give your home a cosy cottage style with some simple interior design tips and ideas. Following on from part one, where we looked at kitchens and bathrooms, today we take a look at bedrooms and living rooms...
There are lots of ways to create a cosy cottage feel to your bedroom. Classic florals, warm colours and textured rugs and fabrics can all evoke a cottage style, but you can also use neutral shades and simple accessories. A patchwork quilt - a mixture of different patterned fabric squares - is a simple way to inject some cottage style into your bedroom. It really is a versatile look.
Reclaimed wood is a perfect for giving a worn, homely look. Car boot sales and vintage shops often have some great finds.
Changing the knobs on a chest of drawers can give an instant image overhaul. Pewter and black cast iron accessories offer the perfect solution for creating rustic detail.
These hand-forged leaf design hooks are ideal for the back of the bedroom door. Our hand-forged door accessories are available in black or pewter finish and the designs are copied from original vintage, traditional styles so prevalent in country cottage homes from previous centuries.
Similar ideas can be used in your living room - florals, tartans, textured fabrics, rugs, natural materials - it is the details that can really make a room. Pick up paintings and ornaments from vintage shops and salvage yards. Personalise your home and give it a unique cottage style.
