One of the key things we love about country cottage bedrooms is the use of flowers. Originally cottages were built as homes for agricultural workers back in the Middle Ages. They would have had small gardens to plant herbs and vegetables. Flowers were secondary and were planted in between available spaces. In time flowers took precedence and the look of today's cottage garden was born. Flowers spilled over to other parts of the home. Interior decor developed through the years to create the look that is so commonly associated with this style now. Below the Serene Ethan Bed is featured. Aside from the high quality finish we also love the combination of Gloss Ivory and Antique Brass.
Country cottage bedrooms have a distinct style that use an informal design. English in origin, this style depends on grace and charm rather than grandeur and formal structure. As a nation we love of all things cozy. There is nothing more comforting on a cold winter's night than to be wrapped up and snug in our homes. Country cottage bedrooms are synonymous with warmth and security. Layers of throws are a must to complete the look. We suggest layering as many blankets as possible. Simple fabric quilts combined with patterns or embroidered details work brilliantly together.
Homely and functional, country cottage bedrooms do not need to be overly feminine. Simple and careful consideration of fabric choices and colours can eliminate an overly 'girly' finish. Your choice of bed frame can also determine the overall look of the room. A rustic wooden bed with a crafted head and footboard could be just what you need. This Serene Maiden bed has a handcrafted shaker inspired crossover design. With its perfect combination of rustic country charm and durability, this bed would fit perfectly in your country cottage inspired bedroom.
