Cottage with an edge: mix funky with classic for a one-of-a-kind look.
A LITTLE BIT COUNTRY Combining rustic wood and painted pieces with a splash of metal is a great formula for getting this look. Chairs, $139 each; cushion, $40, at Crate & Barrel. Farm table, $2,430, at Sawbridge Studios. Chandelier, $599, at Arhaus.
INSTA-COTTAGE When it comes to lending a certain modest charm to a space, beadboard has magical powers. While it’s most often used as wainscoting—running just partway up a wall—installing it full-length visually raises the ceiling. Bonus: It hides wall imperfections.
BASKET CASE Wicker furniture and baskets are casual, practical, and affordable. Add a piece to your room and the space will start to feel warmer immediately. Chair, $130, and baskets, from $12, at Pier 1 Imports.
