Cottage Living Style
How To Mix Old and New
Modern and traditional. Vintage and contemporary. They may sound like strange bedfellows, but when it comes to decorating with style, the only rule is there are no rules.
Make an unexpected furniture choice that defies tradition. In this breakfast room, a blue and white painted floor and a window seat filled with florals, checks, and stripes characterize cottage style. But the addition of a stainless steel table and pair of acrylic chairs creates an element of surprise that's both practical and stylish.
Casters give an industrial feel to the breakfast table and allow for a casual setup that can be moved on a whim. A collection of pottery, with varying shapes, sizes, and shades of blue and green, catches the eye.
