Even if you’re not retreating up north for the ultimate cottage getaway, you can always bring cottage country décor inspiration into your urban abode. Whether you’re looking to decorate your living room or bedroom with comforting, rustic, here are a few ways to embrace cottage living without leaving the city limits.
Adorn a plain wooden table with an array of milk glass vases and gentle pink blossoms: The simplistic look of gleaming white milk glass can immediately add a clean, timeless look to your space. For the ultimate in country charm, revamp your dark wooden dining table with slender, decorative white milk glasses vases.

Decorate with dark hardwood floors, floral printed curtains and classic neutral furniture: If you prefer traditional minimalism, try perfecting your country inspired décor with shining hardwood floors and sleek brown and white painted chairs. Meanwhile, floaty garden inspired drapes in shades of white, blue and green can help to polish off your living room decorating statement.

Refresh your bedroom with sheer white curtains, fluffy pillows and layers of white and dove grey bedding: Even if home sweet home is a downtown condo, you can immediately bring cottage style elements into your space with sweet, neutral shades. Try updating your bedroom with dainty white printed curtains and a bevy of cream-coloured and dove grey pillows. Meanwhile, fluffy bedding in complementary tones, hints of dark chocolate and reclaimed wooden detail can bring country decorating to an entirely new level.

Bring sunshine indoors with fresh sunflowers, a patterned tablecloth and rattan accents: For the warmer temperatures ahead, there’s nothing quite like breathtaking and brilliant yellow sunflowers to illuminate your dining room. To turn up the cottage element, accessorize a wooden table with a sweet table runner or tablecloth in shades of blue and white. For a finishing touch, try styling your space with porcelain and clear glass dishware, decorative plates on the wall and woven rattan placemats.
