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.
Colors for Cottage Style While white evokes the bright, cheerful feel that cottage style embraces, soothing, muted colors are a perfect complement, too. Faint aqua-green on the plank wainscoting and claw-foot tub adds energetic character to this bathroom. Another trademark cottage-style feature: window shutters.
