Buying a cottage today is a little different than what it used to be. Instead of searching for tiny wooden cabins in the woods to renovate and revamp, architects and designers build modern summer homes that are often bigger and better than the average person’s everyday house. Today’s modern cottages are luxurious and come with five-star amenities such as hot tubs, personal gyms, and gorgeous lakefront docks.

Are you purchasing a new cottage this summer? You’re probably wondering what interior design options are out there to turn your new cottage into a summer home that conveys your personality and lifestyle. Here are a few cottage design trends to consider.

1. Vintage Inspired

While you love sophisticated architectural details and having essential home appliances, such as a dishwasher, at the cottage, you also love the kitschy vibes of retro and vintage interiors. You love nothing more than watching movies from decades passed to gain inspiration for your outfits and home décor. Why not take that love of historical aesthetics to your new summer home?

Owning a cottage in the right place will mean that you’ll have access to unique vintage and antique shops in the nearby towns. You’ll find retro furniture and decorations to fill your cottage that will suit your vintage tastes. For example, the cottages for sale in Huntsville Ontario in Canada’s Muskoka region are close to some incredible vintage and antique shops.

You could work with a local, professional interior designer to get the precise look you’re going for since they’ll know where to find the best pieces.

2. French Provincial

Are you more of the romantic type? If so, the French style might be more up your alley. The French Provincial style is excellent for the cottage because it utilizes cozy furniture and warm colours that complement the wooden details of the cottage’s structure. Think of combining rustic, bulky pieces with delicately patterned textiles. Check out the local antique stores for beautiful wooden dressers and velvet upholstery to match your white walls and lace curtains.

3. Focus on the Windows

Is there anything more stunning than the subtle grace of a lake on a summer’s day? Why not turn your lakeside cottage into a tribute to the body of water you love so much? You could tear down a significant portion of the cottage’s walls and install beautiful, cathedral-style windows to admire the lake at any time.

Consult with a local windows and doors manufacturing company to see how you could create wall-to-wall windows and take in the view of a lifetime every morning. Not to mention how nice it will be to stare at the stars in the nighttime!

4. English Country Cottage

While the French Provincial style relies heavily on mouldings and scrolls, the English Country Cottage style showcases more straight, rigid lines. There aren’t as many curves in the English Country style, but the colours remain rustic and cozy. It’s another quaint way to decorate your cottage that will provide light, happiness, and comfort.

Your cottage is your second home. Let it showcase your personal style with one of these unique decoration ideas.
