Cottage chic comprises a country look which typically combines relaxed yet elegant French-inspired pieces. By utilising furniture with a time-worn appearance, cute floral patterns and a pale palette, it’s easy to create the perfect cottage chic bedroom.
Cottage & French Style Bedroom Furniture
As with any bedroom, the bed is always going to be the focal point, greys and pale palettes are the key here. Think rattan bed frames, rococo-style elegant shapes and antique French-style furniture to get the right feel.
Once you’ve decided on the ideal frame, this can be topped with floral duvets, fluffy throws and a combination of plain pastel cushions combined with patterned pillows to finish off the centre point of your sleeping area.
It’s a misconception, however, that a bed needs to be an antique model or an up-cycled traditional French bed – it can be cheaper and easier to simply find a piece which emulates the style without having to spend time keeping an eye on auction sites or perusing second-hand shabby-chic boutiques.
Attention to detail is important when it comes to choosing the right cottage & French-style bedside tables. Traditional French-style bedside tables are hand-manufactured from hardwoods like mahogany, which can then be painted white or in a pale pastel shade, or even left unstained for a more rustic look.
Cottage & French-style bedside tables typically have quite ornate details at the legs, although it’s possible to experiment with a variety of designs to create your own ideal rustic cottage bedside paradise.
Pairing a chest of drawers with your furniture
A classic cottage & French-style chest of drawers typically mirrors the same aesthetic as a French-style bedside table. Think wide drawers, ornate legs and hardwoods and you’ll get the idea – but as always, a rustic look doesn’t mean choosing specific designs to the point where everything is in the exact same style.
By mixing and matching, you can create a room every bit as unique as you are, while still achieving the cottage chic look. In some instances, it can even be refreshing to combine more modern chests of drawers with traditional tables to create a contrast in the bedroom, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
Adding Finishing Touches With Accessories
Once you’ve got your furniture in order, cottage & French-style accessories help to tie the room together and ultimately go the distance in achieving the cottage chic vibe. If you have wooden flooring in your bedroom, a pastel or floral rug (think pinks and pale greens) can add a little bit of vibrancy while still retaining the elegance you desire. Walls adorned with cute, rustic wooden picture or artwork frames go a long way towards creating that French boudoir feel, but as always, don’t be afraid to experiment!
For example, using a vintage metal watering can as a vase or plant-holder can work wonders, as can adorning the room with quirky, fun artefacts. Ultimately, minimalism is not the aim of the game here, so don’t be afraid to find inspiration from unlikely sources.
