    Traditional & Collected Coastal Style: Get the Look Mood Board

    Cozy and Inviting (Get the Look!) is a fun periodic “mini-series” on The Inspired Room!
    To get that “cozy and inviting” mood many of us crave for our home, in this series I share a variety of inspiration rooms that feel cozy and inviting to me (for a variety of reasons!). Then I quickly brainstorm a list of whatever elements I see that I think help create that mood. We will also feature items or tips to “get the look” into your own home.
    Today’s inspiration rooms are all from a beautiful home I found in New England Home Magazine. It is a traditional look with a bit of a coastal vibe, it feels so cozy and collected! Enjoy the inspiration images below and then you’ll find some design observations and get the look sources below.

    Wallpaper – KASAI Wallpaper at Thibaut

    Here are some of my observations and notes on what stands out to me about this home. At end of this post you’ll find a design mood board and more pieces I would consider including in the design if I was styling a similar space!

    Rattan accent pieces
    Antique looking dining table and bed
    Soothing paint colors
    Fun pops of green
    Accessories and furniture with a collected look
    Fun patterns used in the window treatments, garden stools, wallpaper, artwork, pillows and furniture
    Warm wood in every photo
    Unique accent lighting
    Twisted taper candles
    Natural rugs with subtle patterns
    Books (I have a fun post full of rooms decorated with books here)
    Interesting details on furniture and accessories like fringe, tassels, trim
    Fun pattern lampshades (gingham, scalloped woven, pleated with pattern)
    Landscape paintings and chinoiserie botanical artwork
    Decorating with collections (blue and white pottery, books, baskets, the green cabbage dishes, books etc)
    Inviting seating areas (window seat, plenty of dining seating, conversation area in living room)
    Lively plants and flowers
