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:

  Ocean theme mantel with artwork: Pretty and pale, this ensemble proves that not all pictures need to be hung to be taken seriously.

We have a large assortment of custom-made canvas giclee wall decor to hang over your prized mantel, from abstract sea horizons to pastoral landscapes. 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

  Relaxed yet refined. We say it time and time again - a mix of formal and casual pieces will help achieve your sought-after cottage style look in no time.

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):

  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.

We love this relaxed and beachy living room, with its bright blue and green seaglass accents, and have picked out some Cottage Home pieces that will help you recreate this rustic seashore look. Our Country Farm Estate Leg Coffee Table is extremely versatile and can be fully finished in 6 different stains, completely painted in 40 standard colors or finished half and half as shown. It pairs easily with the Camden Slipcovered Sofa, which is available in 400+ fabrics, and in both townhouse and sofa sizes.  We have several cottage wicker and rattan seating choices, and the Cottage Wicker Rattan Club Chair has a slender cane silhouette to add interest to your cottage decor.

Here are our top 5 cottage style decorating essentials to keeping it warm:

 1. Bedding

  • Pillows, comforters, electric blankets!  Pile it on so that when you slip into bed, it is instant heaven.  Check out Parachute, a company that sells amazing bed sets and gives back for every dollar you spend.
  • For more tips on how to keep your bedroom warm, check out our previous post "Layering your Linens."

2. Lined Curtain Panels

  • Windows, especially in old New England homes, can be drafty. Use long, lined curtain panels to dress up the windows and help to keep the cold out!

3. Area Rugs

  • Laying area rugs in hallways, bedrooms, and the living room can help to keep the toes toasty.  In warmer months, bare wood or tile floors can be soothing, but not in the dead of winter!

Cozy Home Ideas | Design Tip: Keeping it Cozy #bedding #keepingitcozy #cottagedecor #winterblues http://cottagehomefurniture.com/Image: Modern Country Style

4. Ambient Lighting

  • Light bulbs come in a variety of colors that range from white/blue to white/yellow, and each range sets it's own mood. In winter months, when we are craving the warmth of the sun, switch out your bulbs to a yellow tint for a warmer effect.  Energy Star recommends looking for lights that range from 2700K - 3000K for the desired effect.

5. Cable Knit Blankets

  • You can't have enough blankets, and we absolutely love the look and feel of big cable knit blankets.  Throw them on the sofa to provide color, texture, and warmth to your home.

Here are a few hints to help you choose the perfect chandelier:

Size

  • If you are hanging a chandelier in the center of a room, like the entryway or foyer, the best way to determine size is to add the length of the room and the width together, change that number into inches, and that gives you the maximum diameter for your chandelier.
  • For example, if your space is 10' long by 16' wide, add those together for 26', and change that to inches - that gives you a maximum diameter chandelier of 26".

Chandelier Sizing Rules | Design Tip: Sizing & Hanging Chandeliers  #chandeliers #cottagechandeliers #cottagelighting #coastalchandeliers #designtip http://cottagehomefurniture.com Image: Beneath My Heart

  • To determine the best size chandelier to place above your dining table, take the width of your table and subtract 12" - that gives you the maximum width for your chandelier.
  • For example, if your table is 72" long x 40" wide, subtracting 12" from 40" gives you a maximum width of 28" for your chandelier.

Hanging

  • If the chandelier is suspended in the center of a room, like the foyer or living room, than you want the base of your chandelier to be no less than 7 feet from the floor.  This allows ample height for walking without interfering with head room.

Chandelier Sizing Rules | Design Tip: Sizing & Hanging Chandeliers  #chandeliers #cottagechandeliers #cottagelighting #coastalchandeliers #designtip http://cottagehomefurniture.com Image: Adore Your Place

  • If the chandelier is suspended over a dining table or kitchen island, than you want to allow 30" - 36" from the surface of the table to the base of the chandelier.  This allows ample room to see across the table without your line of vision being interrupted by the lighting fixture.
