1. Repurposed Wooden Doors
Whether it’s two vertical, paint-scraped doors as a headboard or a single one as the top of a coffee table, the use of old wooden doors that have been scraped and partially sanded make great accents. It’s rustic and tactile and reminiscent of a time before pre-fabricated metal doors.
2. Light Fixture
Lighting is a very important factor for the cottage feel, undressed fluorescent lights just won’t do. Opaque white chandeliers and antique metal sconces followed up with pastel patterned lampshades will deliver a soft glow to the room.
Vintage leather chairs and sofas last forever if they’re well taken care of and look great even when they start to crack a little around the edges. Search high and low for the lighter tones for one great leather piece to fit into your living room such as an ottoman or studded chair.
4 Accent Color
With a base like white or ivory you can accent with a romantic color like rosy red or sea foam green. Light purple or any color blue from navy to sky can bring a nice break to the natural tones of English Country or Seaside for a more Romantic feel.
