Cozy cottage interior design creates the ultimate interior for any vacation getaway home!

And a recent Decorilla client was after such an interior for her family’s holiday home. Our designer was able to transform the interior into a nature-inspired oasis. Read on to see the results for yourself!
The Challenge: Cottage Interior Design
The client needed a cottage interior design service for a newly acquired vacation house in Northwest Michigan. This getaway project entailed an open living space, including kitchen and dining areas serving as both a family cooking area and a gathering spot when entertaining guests. What the client expected from the designer was to:
- Create a cohesive open-space living room design
- Convey the feel of an outdoor-oriented home
- Choose a neutral, earthy color scheme
- Focus on the client’s favorite eclectic style

Cottage-Style Decor Inspiration
As expected, the client provided an inspirational image gallery that rendered their original ideas clearly. While the shots boasted a strong old-world charm of cottage interior design style, the contemporary furnishing simultaneously ensured 21st-century functionality. The abundance of sage green kitchens was no coincidence, and neither was the lack of open shelving systems – two preferences high on their wishlist.
Cottage Decorating Ideas & Moodboard
Indeed, the client’s answers to the interior design questionnaire helped complete the design brief. Using this information, the Decorilla team proposed two suitable designers who translated their cottage decorating ideas to moodboards in no time. After reviewing and a few rounds of consultation, the clients decided to proceed with the design by Erin R.
Erin’s cottage interior design concept was timeless, rustic, and contemporary at the same time. There was, of course, a lot of wood and stone, but the scheme was still feeling bright and fresh. The kitchen’s sage green proved a natural choice for a pop of color seamlessly tied in through furnishing and decorative accents. Meanwhile, the layout made the most of the available open-concept space, with clear zoning and an intuitive flow.
Country Cottage Living Room Design
As a result, the design was entirely in line with the client’s idea of a cozy and stylish family lake house that inspires outdoor-oriented activities and reflects the lifestyle of “up north.” The overall scheme oozes a casual and livable style but still delivers an elevated design.
Its strong character starts in the country cottage living room, with a washed-out vintage rug zoning and grounding the earthy-hued conversation area. A wood coffee table, leather sectional, and petrified wood side table all add layers of texture, along with the pair of contrasting sage poufs. The flow seamlessly continues in the kitchen-and-dining background, conveying the feel of a smooth, cohesive whole.
A vigorous organic flair pulls together many elements. Various timber textures provide a lot of visual interest, eliminating the need for excessive cottage-style decor. The dark wood-look flooring also contrasts the warm white walls to deliver fresh yet powerful visual dynamics. At the same time, the pebble-patterned fireplace acts as an organic focal point, conveying an inviting and cozy cottage atmosphere.
Streamlined, contemporary rustic black chairs complement a large stained wood table in the dining room. A matching pendant above the set merges modern forms with a traditional lakehouse feeling.
Meanwhile, in the kitchen, aged brass hardware, lighting, and fixtures complement the sage cabinetry. The spacious island ensures not only an ample workspace but also three additional seating places. In addition, the leather and wood counter stools round this area out, tying it back into the sectional sofa.
