If you're looking for a chic way to decorate your home this season, a quick stylistic update will work wonders to ground the space and give it additional appeal. According to, many homeowners opt for the cottage-chic style, which features a minimalistic touch and crisp neutral colors that will showcase your design choices.

Cottage-chic is a style that makes best use of light and spatial requirements to create a comfortable and cozy space. The color palette is typically mixed between crisp whites and pastel hues, so try switching out your old tired sofa with a white sectional. Then add some fresh cut flowers, family photos and throw pillows to inject some color into your living room.

The style also encourages blurring the line between indoors and outdoors, so try to incorporate this into your design scheme. Flowering plants, ferns and other bits of green will help bring the style together with ease.

Window blinds and shades are essential to achieving the cottage-chic style, so go for some soft sheer shades to perk up your living space. These shades offer superior light-filtering ability while still providing a view to the outdoors.
