Designing the Perfect Cottage Bedroom

A cottage is your own personal oasis, which means it should be a calming space to unwind and escape your busy life in the city. Décor plays a large role in creating a relaxing environment, including everything from paint colours to bedding. Here are some tips for creating the cottage bedroom of your dreams.

A relaxing bedroom isn’t complete without luxurious bedding that envelops you in a cushiony hug as you lie down. An assortment of pillows paired with a plush duvet offer maximum comfort and create an inviting space. There’s nothing quite like laying in a big comfy bed, as the warm summer air blows in through the curtains.

Shiplap is an easy and in-expensive way to add charm and character to your cottage bedroom. Shiplap creates a rustic-coastal look, making any space appear homier and more inviting. Ship-lap also elevates interior design by adding a subtle touch of detail to any bare walls.

Walls painted with neutral colours such as white, cream or light grey are perfect for creating a visually calming atmosphere and putting your mind at ease. Neutral colours not only create a soothing environment, they also make your bedroom feel crisp and clean.

Vintage Features

In order to truly make your cottage feel like a home away from home you should incorporate personal touches into your décor. The perfect way to do this is through vintage furniture, artwork or fabrics. Vintage items make a space appear lived in and charming as well as help create a bedroom that feels like home.
