One of the quaintest decorating styles is cottage decor. The down-home feel, relaxed vibe, and traditional appeal make this type of interior design popular in many homes – kitchens in particular.
The kitchen is the room where you spend a lot of your time. If you’re not preparing a family dinner, you’re enjoying a feast with your loved ones. Make this space cozy!
Colorful cottage décor is the perfect way to add some retro fun and homey elements to your kitchen. Here are a few of our favorite ideas to get you started.
Buy a new table.
In a kitchen and dining room, the table sets the tone. When your friends and family are gathered around the table it becomes the focal point of the room. It’s a natural piece of furniture and décor to start your new design.
We love this dining table from Wayfair because of its open shelving, versatile shape, and unique lines. It has both a retro charm and a shabby chic sophistication.
Get a colorful dish set.
Adding color into a cottage kitchen isn’t always easy. Most things in cottages are white or brown. With brightly colored dishes, you can inspire a comfortable space without stealing from the earthy vibe.
We love these dishes by Paula Deen because they have a modern color with a vintage design. It’s the perfect addition to any cottage kitchen table.
Move to the walls
Kitchens are small. Boring wall colors will make your room look drab and uninviting. You need a wall design that will draw attention to your space and inspire a comfortable feeling to encourage your guests to sit down and stay awhile.
One way to do this is to have a bold wallpaper design on one wall. This accent wall will draw attention without overpowering the room. We love this wall paper by York Wallcoverings because of its colorful design and trendy geometric pattern.
On another wall, add a clock. This colorful yet rustic looking clock from Wayfair makes your kitchen look fun and playful.
Add natural color with the flooring.
Your kitchen might feel bright and colorful with all of these tremendous patterns and hues, but there’s one final area where you’ll want to add some color – your floors.
Brazilian cherry wood floors are the perfect addition to any room. They incorporate the red tones without overpowering the room with bright colors. This flooring style fits in perfectly with a cottage décor because it still looks natural and feels rustic. It’s the perfect finishing touch for your home.
The key to creating a fun cottage kitchen is to incorporate the colors red, blue, and green. These colors are found in nature and they’re playful enough to breathe new life into your space. Do you have a cottage kitchen? We’d love to see your pictures! Show us in the comments below.
