I ♥ this! Cottage Accessories: Create the cottage look in your home by using pretty pastels and some of these traditional cottage accessories. White: Balance pastels and florals with liberal splashes of white. The color scheme in this bedroom is crisped up by a matelasse bedspread, pillows, and lampshades in white.
With so many layers of white in this cottage bedroom, texture leaps to the forefront to distinguish each element. Notice that each shade of white differs a little from the others, and intriguing textures -- chipped paint on the corbels and shelf, pocks on the wooden bench, open stitches on the throw, and ruffles and gathers on the linens -- catch the light differently to tantalize the eye.
