Top 5 Ways to Bring Cottage Comfort Into The Home
There’s no doubt that a well-spent summer weekend is one spent at the cottage. Maybe it’s the rustic woods, or that bowl of smooth, heart-shaped rocks you found, or the kitschy hand-me-downs; we believe one of the reasons that it is so easy to relax at the cottage, is the relaxed decor.
Below we’ve brought together a few ideas that would help you decorate with that cottage-y, beach feeling at home… without hanging a singing animatronic salmon above your mantle.
Corals and Florals
Summer, summer, summer! Organic shapes, soft patterns and natural fibers easily integrate the warmth of the season throughout your home.
Keeping it light
Watery, neutral colour schemes help create that beachy feel.
Check out these colours for inspiration – our favourites include:
Benjamin Moore – Hale Navy, Stonington Gray, Vanilla Milkshake
Sherwin Williams – Cotton White, Aqua Sphere, Riverway

Bring the beauty of the outdoors inside! Collect shells, rocks, driftwood to create natural décor – nature is a wonderful sculptor. Can’t find it on the beach or in your travels? Checkout Homesense or West Elm for great finds.
At your Leisure
Create cozy vignettes in your home for those lazy summer days – like a reading nook, a lounging hammock, or a comfy games table. These things can bring the family together, or let you escape on your own for the afternoon to re-read your favourite book.
