If you want to turn a living room or lounge into a cosy and chic country cottage retreat you'll need to use warm colours， light flooring， soft lighting to brighten up a small cottage living room and turn it into a lightaccent pillow case baby decorative， airy living space.
Paint them a muted yellow to bring warmth into the room and create a cosy feel， alternatively a colour combination of caramel beige and red will also provide a natural glow.funny pillow cases
Sand the floorboards and varnish to produce a reflective effect on the boards as this will help to lighten up the room. If there are original stone floors it may be worth seeing if you can clean them up to their former glory to give an authentic and on-trend look. Add a large patterned rug to retain the cosy feel.
Make the chimney-breast a feature of the room by adding a wood-burning stove if you don't want the dust created by an open fire. Make the fireplace the central feature of the room. Use brass and natural accessories to give the room rustic charm.
Wall light or old style floor lamps with large shades are ideal， remember to keep the lighting soft to give the room warmth and a homely ambience.
Contrast the yellow walls with a red sofa and a few yellow cushions. Try and include a wooden chair， a rocking chair will continue the rustic country theme.
Full length ready made curtains will help to block out draughts in the winter. Keep the patterned unobtrusive to prevent the curtains from overpowering the room. Curtains with matching pelmets look great in a country cottage， add matching tie back to enable as much natural light as possible to enter the room during the day. If you prefer not to have a pelmet wooden curtain poles， in the same colour as the floor and furniture are the ideal way to hang the curtains and bring balance to the room.
The other day I went over to the Los Angeles Flower Market to pick up some beautiful ranunculus to take to Jaime’s casa. If you haven’t ever been there, I highly, highly recommend it. You are completely surrounded by every flower you could ever imagine and they are, for the most part, at an incredibly affordable price. We kept gawking at them and couldn’t let them just hang out in the vase, so we found a way to wear them by making a 5-minute flower corsage.
Truffle Aioli is the best way to enhance even the most basic recipes like sandwiches, fish, asparagus and more! Truffle Mayo is also great for drizzling or dipping fries and blending into dips.
These make me so happy:) Why? Well if you aren't happy just looking at these recycled jean placemats let me explain... Repurposing is becoming this happy little addiction of mine and this project uses old jeans, scraps of fabrics, and then topping it off with needle felting (which I also loooove) and using my bedazzler! Wow...oh happy day:) They look great on the table and for picnics you can just add the silverware and napkins, roll them up and you are ready to go.
