Classic details meet modern silhouettes creating a lovely coastal cottage feel.

Laid back, comfy chaises with light blue striped fabric are inviting in this Cottage Living Room.

1. Mixing Furniture styles

One way to infuse cottage freshness into a room is by placing an old with modern pieces, creating a natural and collected cottage look.

2. Cottage Mirrors

Mirrors do more than reproduce the view, they transfer the sparkle of sunlight into the room. In a small living room, expand the view and the light with an oversize mirror. This Coastal Cottage room has a beautiful soft tone with the white slipcover sofa, light grays, rustic woods and vintage mirrors.

3. Cottage Cabinet Display Display cabinets or shelves are a perfect way to show your collections of white milk glass or bowls of sea glass. Collections in a spare palette creates harmony which is key for a cottage vibe.

4. Cottage White with Textured Furnishings A palette of white-on-white ensures simplicity. Texture in the form of sisal rugs and wicker accents sparks interest.

5. Accent your personality

Home furnishings from different time periods will create an inviting, yet individual ambiance. Accent with old lamps, lanterns, clocks, or various beach finds enhances your personal style.

6. Keep it Casual

Sun-faded slipcovers and worn plaid blankets give the room a casual cottage chic look.

7. Be an Individual

Mix and match dining chairs adds interest and is an inexpensive way to gather around the table. This is a sure way to add character to the room.

8. Cottage Table Skirt

The condition of the table doesn't matter when you skirt it to the floor. In a small house, this trick makes room for storage as well.

9. Interior Cottage Garden Table

Who says a garden table and chairs don't work inside? This vintage set looks relaxed and inviting in a small dining room.

10. Know Your Limits

Stick with a theme throughout the room by starting with shells you've collected on the beach or paint colors that mimic the ocean. Incorporate them in furniture and accent pieces.
