Farmhouse Bedroom | Rooms to Love: Rustic Chic photo: Pinterest

This elegant farmhouse bedroom features a beautiful collaboration of warm wood tones and soft linens that create an enchanting space.  The combination of table lamps and overhead chandelier lighting plays an integral role in suffusing this room with a warm and romantic glow.  The scrolling wrought iron bed with flowing white and beige linens is a the natural focal point, exuding a relaxing and luxurious retreat feeling to the room. The delicate features of the chandeliers and the dainty floral print in the rug give the appearance of a predominately feminine space, however, the rugged barnboard flooring and heavy scaled dresser provide the right amount of masculinity to balance the space.  Brought to you by Cottage Home– specializing in cottage furniture & farmhouse tables [post_title] => Rooms to Love: Rustic Chic [post_excerpt] => This elegant farmhouse bedroom features a beautiful collaboration of warm wood tones and soft linens that create an enchanting space.

Decorating with Blue and Gray | Color Board: Icy Silversage

These muted grey, slate, and seafoam hues create a quiet confidence that would be perfect for a cottage style bedroom or sitting area.  This color palette offers layers of soft and understated fabrics for upholstery and pillows or for bed linens galore.  Any combination of the selected paint colors would be perfect for the wall paint or for select painted pieces to accent the color scheme.  White would also be a great paint color or drapery choice to create a crisp contrast among the sea of silversage.

How to Hang a Gallery Wall

How to Hang a Gallery WallImage: Holly Mathis Interiors

Filling a blank wall can be a daunting task, but what better way to fill a blank space than with the things you love? By collaging items together into a cohesive statement, you create visual interest while also expressing a little bit about who you are. A great starting point is deciding what kind of look you want to achieve.  Is it a symmetrical, traditional and classic look, or an asymmetrical, funky and abstract look?  Determining what style fits in with the space allows you to then begin to decide what you want to include in the collage and how it will be arranged.  Here are a few helpful hints to get you started.

Good Rule of Thumb: Same Sized Images and Same Frame Style

Creating a symmetrical configuration is a crisp and clean way to collage artwork.  This homeowner chose the same frame color and similar types of photos for a themed focal point. The large collage in this upscale dining room is a perfect choice to keep in harmony with the room's decor.  The snow white frames mimic the crisp white trim and window treatments, while the soft beige background ties in with the sisal rug.  The floral images contribute to the botanical theme of the room, while offering a soft and feminine feature.  The configuration of five columns in four rows is well-balanced and fills the blank wall perfectly without feeling overcrowded.

Good Rule of Thumb: Different Sized Images and Same Frame Style

Here is a perfect example of cohesive asymmetry for a gallery wall.  The creator used similar white frames to outline the miscellaneous collection of inspiring artwork and personal photos.  Maintaining a unifying element throughout the collage, in this case the white frames, brings  the whole look together. Notice how the outlets and the temperature gauges hide seamlessly among the artwork!

Good Rule of Thumb: Same Sized Images and Different Frame Colors

This cute nook of photos is another version of a symmetrical collage, which has the same sized frame, but in different colors to add diversity.  The border is even and the edges of each frame concise, while the varying colors create an eye catching pop.

 Good Rule of Thumb: Different Sized Images and Different Frame Styles 

If you want a really eclectic collage you can mix a variety of images and objects together to achieve a clustered asymmetrical look.  This is a free flowing collage style, and the overall size is determined by the objects you choose.  What's nice about this style is that you can add and change it with ease since there is no set arrangement.   This clustered collage has a great variety of whimsical pieces, including painted canvases, rustic frames, and graphic block letters.  The soft and quiet colors look great against the pewter walls!    

The most important rule of thumb when creating your own gallery collage is to have fun!  This is a design project that allows you to dictate what you want to see featured on your walls.  Choose items that share memories, inspire you, motivate you, and ultimately make you happy.  It's an opportunity to express the people, places, and things you love.

Rooms to Love: Modern Farmhouse Dining Room photo: Southern Living

A formal and family-friendly dining room is well sought after and this modern farmhouse dining room is a perfect example of that blend!  The traditional ladderback chairs, double pedestal table, and huntboard look like old farmhouse finds, but paired with slipcovered head chairs, a dainty crystal chandelier, and lively window treatments helps to reduce the appearance of a stuffy dining room.  Layering fabrics and textures on the chairs creates a casual feel around the more formal table, and slipcovers allow for easy cleaning when the inevitable spills happen.

This rustic buffet in this sunny kitchen nook is made of reclaimed old pine making it a unique center island for the kitchen.  Reclaimed wood has lots of personality with an array of markings from it's years of wear.  The age of this type of wood also makes for a harder surface and is not as penetrable as new pine.  There are two types of wood treatments for a kitchen surface:  stained and sealed, if not being used as a cutting surface, or oiled, if the surface will be used as a direct prep station.  Incorporating a center island in the kitchen adds another work surface and offers a chance to punch up your look with color or detailing.  If space permits, add stools for seating and an overhead pendant light - a great spot for morning coffee, after school homework, or late night snacking!

Rooms to Love: Casual Living RoomImage: Elements of Style

The furnishings in this open concept casual living room all play off of the dramatic contrast between the dark wood floors and the white beadboard walls.  Everything in this space harmonizes beautifully by maintaining the dark/light contrast throughout.  The stark white slipcovered sofa balances the heavy rattan framed chairs and all three pieces are anchored by the beige striped rug.  The trunk coffee table is a great solution for hide away storage and adds a small splash of rustic character.  Naturally the large stone fireplace is the main focal point in the room, flanked by two large windows draped in a soft cream fabric.

Pet Friendly Decorating Tips | Entryway with Wood Floors The entryway into your home can take a lot of abuse, not only from people, but pets as well.  It is the first area in the house where animals come in from the outside and shake off from rain, snow, mud, and dirt.  First, eliminate any materials where odors will be captured.  Carpeting will soak up odors, dander, hair will stick, and any "accidents" will be soaked into the carpet as well as the padding.  Wood, tile, cement, or other sealed flooring are the best choices for easy upkeep, including vacuuming, mopping, and sweeping.  Tile or cement are both nice choices for warmer climates, because either material creates a cool spot for your pet to lay low and escape the heat.   Pet Friendly Decorating Tips | Entryway with Tile With wood flooring, you have multiple options with different price tags, but most homes have pine, mahogany, red oak or maple floors.  Wood offers warmth and natural character, as the grains vary from board to board.  Wood is a penetrable material, so scratching from your pets’ long nails can occur.  It is best to keep their nails short to reduce damage to the floors.  Remember to have a designated mat where pets can wipe their paws.  Choose mats that are made of coarse synthetic fibers that will hold up to tough wear and will catch loose dirt.      The family room is where pets and people love to gather for relaxing, lounging, and spending time together.  Choosing fabrics and furnishings that support these activities creates a low key and happy place for everyone in the family. Pet Friendly Decorating Tips | Living Room with Easy Care Rug Laying the foundation is first and foremost:  the area rug!  Some key concerns when choosing the right area rug for your pets - Is it easy to clean?  Does it have a tight weave?  Will it stay in place with high traffic?  Choose a rug that has clear care instructions on what cleaning products are okay to use to spot-clean.  Try to avoid rugs that are dry clean only.  Synthetic fiber rugs are just as good as natural fiber rugs, and tend to be a little less expensive.  Depending on the blend type, they can even be a better choice for heavy traffic areas because of their durable and stain-resistant nature. The weave type of the rug is also significant if you have animals that tend to knead or dig a lot.  Their nails will create pulls and separations in the rug that will lead to constant rug replacements.  Choose rugs with a tight closed weave, and avoid options that have loose or knitted textures. Keeping the rug in place is an additional factor to consider, because a family room with pets is destined to become a play area!  Investing in a high-quality grip rug pad is recommended for any type of rug to help keep it in place. Pet Friendly Decorating Ideas | Living Room with Oyster Rug When choosing sofas & chairs for the family room, consider slipcovered frames versus upholstered frames.  A slipcover allows for much more flexibility for easy cleaning and is easier to replace when the time comes. Some people shy away from slipcovers because they want a more tailored look, but not all slipcovers have to be loose and ill fitting.  Look for a heavier weighted fabric that will keep its shape when draped.  A welt, or piping, around the frame also helps to give a slipcovered piece more structure. With either slipcovered or upholstered pieces, just like rugs, choose fabric material that is easy-to-clean and durable.  As we all know, no matter how much we try to keep our pets off the furniture, it's the first, and last, place they want to sleep!    Image Sources: Entryway Better Homes and Gardens Entryway Tear It Out Living Room The Inspired Room Living Room Cottage Home Brought to you by Cottage Home– specializing in cottage furniture & farmhouse tables [post_title] => A Home Fit For Our Furry Friends [post_excerpt] => Pets are a huge part of our families; they bring joy and happiness to our lives and to our homes.

Rooms to Love: Rustic Coastal Cottage photo: BHG

This rustic coastal cottage packs a lot of personality for such a small space.  The painted white high-paneled wainscoting and walls provide a clean palette to showcase the red, white, and blue motif.  The reclaimed wood accent pieces, like the coffee table, the cricket end table, and the storage chest of drawers, bring in a little bit of country to this seaside cottage.  Tasteful coral, seashell, and sea glass accessories sprinkle the walls and surfaces to quietly reference the home's natural surroundings.

Get The Look: Teak Patio Furniture

Teak patio furniture is a great choice for a beautifully weathered finish and a versatile style!  Teak wood naturally grays over time, giving it an aged appearance, even though the wood maintains its strength.  There are ways to polish and treat your teak if you prefer the original golden brown hue to the ashen finish it develops.   With a simple teak frame, teak sectionals create a minimalist look to any outdoor space, that is easily personalized with cushion colors and pillow fabrics!  This gorgeously green outdoor space is a perfect backdrop for a shady lounge spot, while the rug anchors the sitting area. The green, yellow, and tan palette is a perfect choice to blend in with the natural surroundings.
