Reading Nook Ideas | Inspiration Board: Farmhouse Reading Nook #farmhousestyle #countryfurniture #cottagedecor #inspirationboards http://cottagehomefurniture.com Not every home has the space and luxury for a library or reading room, but all you really need is a comfortable chair and a good lamp to create a successful reading nook.  Using the braided rug adds warmth and country character as well as helping to carve out the space.  The two drawer cabinet shown is a perfect practical piece because it can house books underneath when not in use, and is large enough for ample lamp space.  This color palette could easily transition between summer and winter just by switching out the wall decor.  Here a serene winter scene hangs above the chair to set the tone for an afternoon with a good book and a warm cup of coffee.

"I love a mix of bright colors and graphic patterns for my modern cottage bedroom.  The room doesn't get a lot of natural light; these colors give the room a fresh, vibrant feeling that would make me feel refreshed and ready to start each day!"

As we hunker down for a long winter here in New England, we are reminded to prepare our beds for cozy sleeping.  Here are a few cottage bedroom decorating ideas and inspiration photos for an inviting, warm, and easy to care for seasonal bed!

1) Choose a comfortable type of sheet set, because that is what your body will be predominately exposed to.  There are several kinds to choose from, but we prefer 100% cotton because there are no harsh chemicals found in cotton.  It is a hypoallergenic material, soft to the touch, and an environmentally friendly natural fiber.  It is also an easy to care for material, durable, and not prone to pesky static!

2) Choose a down comforter that is going to work well with the type of "sleeper" you are.  This refers to the temperature you keep your bedroom at, as well as how your body naturally regulates temperature throughout the night.  For people who are cold sleepers, meaning you tend to be chilly and require a lot of heat to maintain comfort, than it is suggested to choose a heavy weighted down filled comforter.  On the other hand, people who tend to be warm sleepers, meaning you tend to heat up or over-heat easily, than it is suggested to use a lighter weight down comforter.  Retailers all rate their products individually, and it is best to consult a sales professional when determining which of those retailers’ comforter level is best for you. If you have any allergies to down fill, there are several synthetic comforters to choose from as a hypoallergenic alternative.  Some premium comforter retailers offer a synthetic down fill, which feels, warms, and clusters just like real down feathers.

3) Choose a blanket to top your comforter that is going to be weighty enough to hold in the heat.  It is imperative to have this layer of blanket to trap in the heat below and keep you nice and toasty.  If you are a warm sleeper, and don't need as much added warmth, than choose a blanket that has a more crocheted or basket weave where air can circulate through. This layer is also where you can have fun with color and texture to make your bed's personality shine.  Do you want a cool and classic color combination, or do you want a vibrant and bold graphic look?  Cottage Bedroom Decorating Ideas | Design Tip: layering Your Linens III
