You will want to use cottage colors as with all other rooms in your home.  However you can play around with the colors here. Depending on the light in the room.

Make sure you use colors that are easy on the eye and make you feel good and very relaxed. To keep the room looking “cottage” be sure to add a lot of white, and painted elements, to give it that perfect bungalow feeling.

  • New and antique quilts.

  • Mixed and matched patterns such as: stripes, solids, paisleys, and florals.
