5 quick, easy, and cost-friendly steps to get the cute country-cottage look with a fresh modern twist.
Got a bland bedroom, or fancy a quick new look? Update it with a little country-cottage style – this scheme is fresh, pretty and easy to do on a tight budget.
1) Display rustic accessories
Create a feature above the bed by hanging pictures and jewellery on pretty hooks.
2) Go for ditzy floral bedding
Pretty bedlinen vintage-style florals are essential to this look. If bedlinen is too much for you, choose white but add floral cushions and quilts.
dd simple modern accents
Choose simple designs that won’t compete with the floral bedlinen, but ones that will stand out in a crowd – we love this cool cushion and retro-inspired table lamps.
4) Choose white-painted furniture
Get the relaxed, casual feel of the country with simple unfussy furniture like this bedside table.
5) Try a colourful headboard
A matching headboard and valance in bright cherry red creates a bold contrast against plain white walls.
