Colorful Rustic Cottage With Character
This beautiful home is a perfect example of how rustic tones can pair with color! With multiple patterns and materials that work together to create visual harmony and warmth, this interior design is positively charming. A combination of light colors and warm, colorful accents play off each other and balance the other out so each room feels perfectly complimented by the presence of tans, off-whites, and taupe along with colors like pink and red.
A soft tone in the living room forms a base for other colors to warm up the room. Vivid colors provide a unity, while patterns on the pillow and rug provide a contrast to the solid colors elsewhere. Another shared space, a seating room, utilizes the same approach, with beige and striped rugs sharing floor space and white and grey couches and chairs sharing space with patterned wallpaper, a crimson throw blanket, and tall red and pink lamps. White pillars and a fuzzy gray pillow allow the colors to warm up the area without overwhelming it.
The work space here is very nicely done and isn’t too distracting. A basic gray reading chair, wooden chairs and a basic beige stone inlay provide grounding forces, while a colored striped rug adds a little life to the space, as do pink lamps, colored letters, and a few colorful potted plants.
A built-in cassette fireplace is the perfect way to warm a space up, both visually and literally! The pairing of candles, a fish, a large letter “Z” and photos above the fire adds extra warmth and character, as does the colored red chair, pink lamp, and wooden coffee table.You can do a version of this area yourself quite easily, too; it’s great design inspiration.
In the dining area, stone walls, terracotta floors, natural light and wooden furniture create warmth and ambiance, with wooden shutters providing the final rustic touch. Use natural materials like flax, stone, and wood as seen here to create traditional beauty that invites pops of color such as these radiant red flowers.
A large off-white cupboard is the perfect way to accent a dining area full of natural wood material. White on the dining area and surrounding allows for cozy accents such as these colorful square pillows.
The hallway is full of beautiful, warm accents that make it feel so cozy! A beige terracotta floor and wood frames compliment clean white walls and a table that hosts candles, bird statues, a tin box and old milk containers that give this hallway a “rooted” feel, and a basket on the floor provides simple beauty.
You too can achieve old-world charm in your kitchen! Just add a red and white checkered cloth to your table and add items with solid color around the kitchen. White tiles break up the color in what is a charming country kitchen done perfectly.
Brighten up white kitchen sink tile with a few green plants above! They’ll provide natural color and charm to any kitchen setting (put in rustic or metal pots for extra effect). Speaking of effect, you can’t beat this bedroom! Relaxing blue and white striped beds with pink and white pillows stand out against the warm brown accents of the walls, ceiling, and floor. A light taupe diamond-pattern carpet sets the scene for the floor, while the rustic wooden bench is made cozy using colored and white chevron pillows. In the next bedroom, multiple patterns and colors make for comfortable design bedfellows.
Bright fabrics and towels make this bathroom bright and engaging! An all white background allows the red here to truly stand out. This house is a fascinating study in color, patterns, fabric, and interior design. Perhaps you’ll be motivated to follow in these footsteps and incorporate a rustic, country design with a modern twist in your home as well!
