Decorating, redoing (or creating) a cottage fireplace mantel in your living room can be an inexpensive way to get some new-to-you coziness in place fast. As it turns out, you don't even need a fireplace, thanks to the popular "floating mantel".   Decorate Your Mantel Swapping out the seasons, amping up the glitz for some holidays: this is the fun part. Each one of us has our favorite rendition of the perfect fireplace mantel, whether it be a country rustic mantel overflowing with gourds, Indian corn, rusty farm implements and beeswax candles, a coastal-inspired mantel showing off delicate starfish, glass buoys, driftwood and twinkle lights, or a lodge look mantel piled high with pinecones, antique lanterns and elk statuettes. The little touches centered around your theme - coastal, cottage, country farmhouse or lodge - are fun to come by and give the decor our own personal stamp. Remember to keep proportion and color in mind for when you step back to observe your new favorite focal point. But sometimes a mantel need a larger item than knick-knacks to set it off - this is where we can help.   Accessorize Your Mantel  From artwork to mirrors, we have the larger companion pieces your cottage style mantel needs. From the upper left photo going clockwise, we will show you examples of like-minded accessories we offer at Cottage Home Furniture. Sea captain's mustard painted mantel: How we love the old time feel of this dining room and the saffron hue of the mantel. This nautical folk art piece suits this cottage dining room, but if you don't have the original, we have something to fit the bill. Our collection of vintage vinyl floor cloths include some seagoing scenes, and although they are primarily meant for the floor, we don't see any reason why you couldn't frame one (available in 23" x 30" and 43" x 56"). Go with what you love. This one we call Pleasant Point:

The giclee that rings true to the one in this sea-inspired living room is called Sea Breeze:

  Rustic farmhouse country barnwood beam mantel: Throw another log on the fire and stay a while! This fireplace is too pretty serving as a cordwood container to change a thing. Lanterns, pottery planters and botanical touches encourage the feeling of elegant rusticity, and the large, bold clock face ensnares your interest. We offer a variety of cottage wall clocks to pair with your mantelpiece, including the Hampden 1864 Wall Clock: Inspiration Board: Cottage Fireplace Mantel Makeover   Ocean theme mantel with mirror: Adding depth and an ocean hue of soft blue to this coastal living room, the mirror is key to setting off the mantel with its adorable sea birds and natural sea grasses (and another sailboat). We offer several mirrors - some are built by the craftsmen who make our farmhouse tables and they come in several dozen different paint and stain colors. Our Stony Brook Mirror is available in several beachy colors and echoes the lines of the white painted fireplace with its interesting jutting edges:

  DIY Mantels Scoring an antique mantel or weathered barnwood at an estate sale always gets the blood pumping. The same goes for inheriting a country estate with fifteen fireplaces, all with mantels elegantly faded to a Byronesque splendor. But if you have no flea market finds - along with a plain mantel, no mantel or even no fireplace - you can still create "the look" with a little elbow grease - and power tools. Have a mantel that you're kind of on the outs with? Here is a DIY video on how to decoratively augment an existing mantel. Don't have a fireplace? You don't even need one. Here is a DIY video on how to add mount a rustic barnboard beam on a wall that needs a fashionable focal point to create a "floating mantel". Inspired yet?

Already our desire to hold on to recent beachy, breezy days and our instinct to start making a cozy nest at home begin their annual tug-of-war. But for the moment, let’s enjoy the serenity of this open, airy beach cottage living room with all the trappings of the summer by the seashore.   The innate coastal feel of this living room comes from lots of natural light bouncing off white walls as well as carefully chosen neutral hues. The barely-there bleached natural fiber rug creates an illusion of increased floor space and allows your beach cottage furniture to stand out. Striped seersucker armchairs and cottage painted furniture, starfish pillows and washed chambray slipcovers – all these choices and more look fantastic against a neutral backdrop.

  Yes, we love the neutrals – they are a big part of the Cottage Home philosophy. But we also can’t do without the pops of color that can individualize a room and show your cottage style. Handblown aqua bottles and glassware, a navy throw pillow and a russet striped throw some hints of color into the beachy mix. But the fabulous bright tropical shade of coral on the shutter-style cottage painted coffee table steals the show.   The Distinctive Cottage

I don't know about you, but there has been a lot of reading going on in the last few months at my house. Sometimes I reach for already-read novels, sometimes I exhaust all new titles in the genre of the moment (Victorian ghost stories, anyone?), and sometimes I reading about people and places I've never heard of just to feel like I'm becoming more informed. Looking for something new to read? Featured here are three entertaining books that I have read, two recently and one not, each one paired with a cottage style chair reflecting the book's personality. Because no matter what the content, a good book deserves a great chair.   Comfort is Key If your book is compelling enough, sometimes you will realize that you have been reading until the sunlight has faded, oblivious to the discomfort of old metal lawn furniture. But there's no need for that - especially when we have a large selection of attractive and comfy seating. Our cottage seating ranges from rockers and wooden chairs and stools to upholstered and slipcovered pieces and benches. Whether you read indoors our outdoors, or a little of both, we have suitable seating options upon which you should read your novella or biography.   Inspire Your Setting The first selection above (1) is our Outer Banks Wicker Heirloom Chair, from our Cottage Wicker Collection. Its generous, fanned-out silhouette seems a perfect chair choice for reading a biography about Beryl Markham. I can picture Beryl in the 1920s and 1930s lounging in this rustic wicker chair, taking a break from hard work and sharing a drink on the veranda of her favorite Kenyan bar, the Muthaiga Club. Never heard of her? Besides being the first person (man or woman) to successfully fly an airplane solo east to west across the Atlantic Ocean in 1936, statuesque Beryl was an author and award-winning professional horse trainer. Raised by her father in the Kenyan bush alongside the native people, she had an adventurous life that included hunting and scouting game, even a British Royal Prince. For the rest of her radically unconventional life she was paid hush money by the Crown... and she looked fabulous into her 80s to boot. The central selection (2) is from our Summer House Upholstered Collection - the Pepperrell Cove Upholstered Bench. Customization is a breeze with hundreds of fabrics to choose from. I chose this long and lean piece for the famous couturiere - Coco Chanel. I can see her perch lightly on this sofa-length bench for just un moment - perhaps to sip a pernod - pleased with the simple lines and contrasting pattern. Many of us know Chanel -  her style, her aesthetic. But the secrets she harbored numbered more than her weight and perfume formula. Liaisons of all kinds, from passionate to practical, filled this busy grand dame's life. Not to mention that she came from nothing. She sprung herself from an orphanage straight into Belle Epoque Paris, found some heavy-hitting friends and got to work creating tirelessly. Her new biography reveals arrangements she held with the Nazi occupiers of war-torn France. In sympathy or for survival? We may never know. The last cottage chair selection (3) is from our uniquely styled Rustic Hickory Twig Furniture collection. Backwoods know-how and steambent hickory and oak are what makes it look so cool. I can picture settling down in this rocking chair to listen to the sounds from a steamy bayou and hear a good old murder tale. OK - so I read this book a long time ago now. Or did I just see the movie? No - I would never do such a thing. So besides knowing that this book contains a murder, and some antiques, as well as voodoo and a creepy statue on the cover, I don't remember the details. But I remember the setting, the old, genteel squares of Savannah as well as the eerie kudzu-covered side of Savannah. And of course certain characters like Lady Chablis and the voodoo priestess Minerva definitely made an impression. This country style rocker is the best place to comfortably hear a story filled with fear, revenge and ghosts - the gentle rocking of your own flesh and blood will stave off the spirits!   Choose Your Colors Shown in Acorn, the Outer Banks Wicker Heirloom Chair is available in 20 available colors (including Natural). Buttercup is shown (top right) because it shows off Beryl's hair For the Pepperrell Cove Upholstered Bench, the leg selection shown is Dune. However, there are eighteen total leg colors as well, and any Benjamin Moore paint color can be added to your bench to further make it your own. Our Bentwood Rocker looks jaunty in Old Red, but there are a baker's dozen of other colors to choose from, including pretty Bishop Blue (shown at bottom left).   Book credits: 1) Straight on Till Morning: The Biography of Beryl Markham by Mary S.

A porch is not just a way to state your style to any passers-by, but a place to hover between the safety of home and the ever-calling romance with the outdoors and neighborly life. The porch is not just a portal to all that we call home, but also to everything we as humans seek out. So go ahead and decorate your outside “room” just like you would any indoor living space. It’s good for you! First, is the porch completely enclosed, covered, or is it more susceptible to the elements? We offer three collections of wicker for any setting:  
  • Cottage Wicker – designed for indoors and for a covered screened porches
  • Porch Wicker – designed for any type of covered porch with limited exposure
  • Outdoor Wicker – can be used anywhere, including open patios
  Now decide how you will primarily use the porch – think beyond just relaxing and grilling. This will help you prioritize your space.  
  • Do you want to incorporate a dining area?
  • Would you rather have a cozy conversation nook?
  • Do you need a staging area for gardening?
  The pictured porch is pretty impervious to weather, so the pieces in it hail from our Cottage Wicker Furniture Collection. Featured are some key pieces for relaxing as well as entertaining, such as the Cottage Wicker Hexagonal Table and the St. Augustine Wicker Rocker. Several wicker colors are available. P.S. The little cutie peeking in at the lower right-hand corner of the photo is the Cape Hatteras Fish/Whale Bed.   Our Porch Wicker Furniture Collection is a versatile option for indoors, screened-in areas and covered porches – all pieces are made of durable rattan. If you’ve always wanted a small dining area on your porch, the space saving Bistro Wicker Dining Table is a great idea.

    Today’s selection of outdoor furniture, outdoor fabrics and rugs allow you to create the porch of your dreams!  Here is an example of one of our enviable Outdoor Wicker Furniture Collection pieces, the Bermuda Wicker Swivel Glider (many coordinating pieces):

Bermuda Wicker Swivel Glider

  Whatever is on your porch agenda, remember to plan for privacy so you can truly relax and enjoy the space.  Consider the seasons – shading is essential in the rainy spring and hot summer, while an adjacent fire pit or outdoor heaters allows you to enjoy your outdoor space long into the autumn and early winter.

Aside from the creative choices involved, such as picking paint or stain colors, there are some basic practical considerations for everyday functionality.

1. What size farmhouse table do I need?

The ideal dining table size for you depends upon the number of people you seat most days, as well as the size of your room or dining area. This chart shows recommended table sizes based upon number of people for both round tables and rectangular tables with a width of 36”- 42”.
# of people Seats comfortably Workable size
4 4' rect / 48" round  42" round
6 6' rect / 60" round 5' rect / 54" round
8 8' rect / 72" round 7' rect / 66" round
10 10' rect 9' rect
Extensions   Extensions? If you entertain often, company board extensions are available for most of our farmhouse tables. They slide into the ends of the table to maintain the look of the long planks used in traditional farmhouse tables and to avoid a split in the center. A pair of extensions increases the size of your dining table by 3 feet - space for four more guests. Adequate clearance? Allow a clearance of 36”around your table for walking and pulling out chairs (the minimum without feeling too tight is 27”). Make sure that your dining chairs or benches will fit comfortably around your new table, allowing 2-6” between chairs. If you have a banquette, also consider either a trestle or pedestal base for your table to avoid interference with a table leg. For additional information, please see our Dining Table Seating Guide.

2. What kind of wood should I choose for the top of my farmhouse table?

Selecting a type of wood for your farmhouse table involves striking a balance between appearance, durability and cost. Appearance For a farmhouse table with individual character, reclaimed wood such as pine and oak is a popular choice. Other woods, such as maple or new pine, will give your table a classic farmhouse look without rustic details like distressing. Wood with beautiful graining, such as oak, should be shown off with a stained or waxed finish. If you prefer your table painted, choose a wood with fewer knots (like poplar or maple) for no show-through. Durability If you are concerned with keeping the everyday wear of your table to a minimum, consider the hardness of the wood you choose.  Softer woods, such as new pine or poplar, can be more susceptible to dings. Here is a rough guide to the hardness of different woods by density:

New Pine                      Poplar     Old Pine                                Maple                                                              Oak

Soft ---------------------------------------------- Medium ------------------------------------------ Hard

 350  400  450  500  550  600  650  700  750  800  850  900  950 1000 1050 1100 1150 1200 1250 1300

  Cost For farmhouse tables, the harder the wood, the higher the cost. Pine and poplar are the least expensive woods while oak costs considerably more. Reclaimed (old) wood tables, which are more durable than those made from new pine, are also less expensive than hardwood tables. Based upon our 17 years of experience designing custom farmhouse tables, the most popular wood choices remain pine, old (reclaimed) pine and maple.  

3. What is the most durable finish for the top of my farmhouse table?

A clear top coat over either a stained or painted finish is the most durable surface for a farmhouse table top. Remember that any major surface damage to this finish may require professional repair – or just leave the marks to increase the character of the table top. Whatever finish you choose for your farmhouse table, we recommend using place mats, coasters and hot pads to keep it free of water rings or burn marks.  

4. How do I care for my farmhouse table?

The top of your farmhouse table is easy to maintain – clean with a damp sponge and dry with a clean, soft cloth. DO NOT USE CLEANERS OR SOLVENTS (Pledge, 409, nail polish removers, etc). For small dings or scratches on painted surfaces, touch up paint (not stain) is available from us. A stain from your local hardware store in a similar color to your table finish can fix minor dings or scratches on stained tables, but major repairs or refinishing should be left to a professional. Only apply wax touch-ups (we can provide brand information) if you have a table with a waxed finish and want to freshen the look periodically. Do not sand before applying wax, then let dry and then buff off with clean, dry, soft cloth.

Building a room around a rug is a classic design mantra. To select one rug that pulls off just the right look - whether it be cottage style or even farmhouse formal - consider the texture, shape, size and palette. Bold solid colors or muted melanges, soft wool or versatile polypropylene or jute, traditional rectangles or eye-catching circles - these are all choices that can help steer your living room toward either cozy or dramatic. Our Cottage Home designers suggest laying out newspaper on the floor to simulate the size of the rug to help you pick the right dimensions. For a calming environment, choose a rug with serene hues of the sea and sandy beach. The above gallery of calming colors such as natural, seafoam, driftwood, ivory and citrus shows a selection of fabrics that complement a popular Cottage Home beach cottage rug - the Caribbean Sea Pottery Braided Indoor/Outdoor Rug. This rug comes in several colors and is easy to care for. Each fabric in our Shoreline Slipcovered Furniture Collection can be purchased by the yard or used to cover one of our sofas, chairs or ottomans.

Ever want to embrace a trend -- or maybe even a few -- but you're afraid to oversaturate your space with that look? Anything but overdone, this cottage bedroom showcases a mix of rarely-linked decor sensibilities -- southwestern, industrial and nautical, interwoven with a hint of modern. Use of a unifying color scheme and a just a few key pieces from each style, along with some clever hybrid items, creates a unique and easy compatibility.

Sophisticated style choices coexist in this bedroom, yet it looks satisfyingly sparse and casual. Throw pillows with a simple chevron design bring to mind ship signal flags, but also fit with the area rug's primitive stepped design. Equally at home in a harbor town tavern or an restored warehouse, the wood and rope chandelier bridges the room's industrial and nautical elements. White and navy blue instantly conjures up a nautical vibe in this small coastal cottage bedroom, and with the colorway echoed in the Southwestern rug, the two styles are instantly reconciled. As a bonus, using a deep inky blue in a limited swath just behind the headboard creates a feeling of depth as the wall recedes under the sway of the dark color.

What's your favorite style pairing?

Injecting a beach cottage feel in your home can be as easy as pairing a neutral duo, such as silvery grey and sandy natural, with seaborne hues like blues and greens. A mix of weathered grey and sand with aqua and deep sea blue brings to mind bleached driftwood set against a shimmering blue sky and ocean expanse. Offering a modern twist on a tribal pattern, the Medina Green Jacquard Woven Wool Rug effortlessly ties together this beach-driven palette. Mixing leather and upholstery, wood and metal, we have selected some pieces to play off all the great colors in this rug: dove grey, soft tan, turquoise, citrus green and deep teal.

If leather is to your liking, our Summerhouse Leather Furniture Collection offers many cottage style sofas, chairs, ottomans and more in an array of bold colors, and many of the pieces are also available upholstered. The Rooster Rock Leather Sofa, also available in an armchair, looks smart with the Myrtle Leather Ottoman. The Footbridge Upholstered Ottoman is a longer option, and can also be used as an impromptu bench or coffee table. Painted furniture always looks at home in a beach cottage living room, and the Grenada Console Table picks up the summery shade of green in this rug. Shown here for added inspiration, the Brushed Nickel Three Pendant Chandelier can add some character to really any room in your beach cottage.

A mix of weathered grey and sand with aqua and deep sea blue brings to mind bleached driftwood set against a shimmering blue sky and ocean expanse. #aquas #greens #greys #cottagelivingroom http://cottagehomefurniture.com [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => inspiration-board-in-the-mix [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2020-02-06 15:52:55 [post_modified_gmt] => 2020-02-06 20:52:55 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://cottagehomefurniture.com/?p=7942 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw [post_icon] => ) ) [post_count] => 13 [current_post] => -1 [in_the_loop] => [post] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 184883 [post_author] => 1429 [post_date] => 2020-11-04 14:57:45 [post_date_gmt] => 2020-11-04 19:57:45 [post_content] => With the changing of the seasons, we turn to familiar comfort zones in our home for solace:  the bedroom, the fireplaced den, the living room sofa.  Outdoors is still there for us, but with darkness coming on earlier and earlier, even the most stoic of us sometimes just want to curl up under a cozy blanket.  But first...
