Country Cottage Living Room Inspiration

My home is traditional dark wood vintage furniture from the 1929’s and I love the look but would prefer if my living room had a more cottage feel as I think it is has more character.   Presently my living room is formal and when friends and family come to visit they walk past this room and go to my country theme kitchen.

My husband loves the tradition living room so I have been pointing out to him in magazines and also on HGTV how comfortable the country cottage theme makes a room feel. 

I think by adding a few key accessories that it will make a huge difference.  Any way I want to keep my wood furniture I only want to change out some accessories so that the ambiance will be warm and welcoming. 

I am inspired to decorate my living room with a country theme by featuring a hooked rugs, folklore patchwork toss pillows, plaid or calico homespun sofa throws, handcrafted antique wooden toys and Battenberg lace window treatments.  So here are some accessories finds that I think would make my living room feel cozier.

Keep with the country cottage theme and add some beverage coasters to your coffee or end tables.  By adding coasters family and friends will feel more welcomed and not afraid of my formal living room.

This pillow coordinates well with the color theme of the room.  The vintage style will compliment a country cottage theme.

Complete the room with a feature canvas print above the sofa.  Here are a few prints that I love.
