Visit Maine Cottage during the annual Upper King Design District: Fall Design Walk, Thursday October 21 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM in Charleston, South Carolina. We’re located at 525 King Street (map it!).

The Upper King Design District has quickly become the place to be in downtown Charleston with its unique blend of specialty retail shops and some of the most popular fine dining establishments on the peninsula.

There are 6 (or more) ways to do just about everything in life. Decorating your home is no exception. Here’s an example of a sunny room where we’ve chosen a Maine Cottage color grouping and played with the sofa color only – in 6 different ways. The effect of one shift in hue can be subtle or dramatic – depending on the size, amount and placement. Curious about color and composition ideas for your home? We make it easy to custom finish furniture to your taste. Call us for a furniture and color consultation.

Audrey Room in yellow
Here’s a sunny well-composed room of warm whites, yellows, yellow-oranges and saturated oranges. A hint of red give it extra pizazz.
Audrey Room in light brown
For a lighter, brighter room try combining varied whites and soft yellow-oranges. Fabric patterns, wall color and pure orange give it punch.
Audrey Room in light brown
Experiment with neutrals warm and cool. The surrounding yellows keep this room warm and light.

Audrey Room in medium brown
A brown hue can be truly neutral if you want the sofa to recede – but the pillows and walls keep it from becoming too flat.
Audrey Room in dark brown
A large amount of red-orange brown as a neutral gives a room balance and depth when combined with lighter accents.
Audrey Room in dark brown
A richer reddish brown neutral gives this room the 6th way to a robustly sunny room.

When my husband and I started renovation of our 1970′s beachfront home last year, it was completely gutted down to the studs. We wanted it to feel like an old cottage with white washed walls, ceilings and wood floors. I was familiar with Maine Cottage through their website and had ordered lamps, rugs and accessories for our home in Virginia.

We visited Maine Cottage in Charleston with only a sample of our counter top material. We wanted our cottage to feel warm and inviting, but withstand the wear and tear of sand being tracked in from the beach. We also were concerned with space and storage limitations. And we wanted COLOR!

The Maine Cottage staff spent hours working with us. We were so satisfied with the color selections and quality of the furniture and accessories that we decided to order more pieces blending natural woods with colored pieces. We absolutely love everything.

The entire staff at Maine Cottage Furniture is very dependable and creative. They were excellent with follow-through and getting back to us promptly. It has been a pleasure working with Amy. She went above and beyond the call of duty making the trip from Charleston to Edisto multiple times to help with our selections and to add the finishing touch. The result is exactly what we wanted. It’s perfect! I would highly recommend Maine Cottage Furniture.

Set against a landscape of pristine waterways and forests, Fripp Island is South Carolina’s most seaward barrier island and vacation home to three generations of family – with a main house (above) and a 3500 square foot guest house and pool where extended family can spillover into a comfortably relaxed and FUN setting. The owner worked closely with our Charleston store crew, including Sara Meyer, to plan and fill many rooms in this family compound.

“Just to repeat, Sara, what I told you about the pleasure of working with you and Maine Cottage on our beach house. I recall the day we sat down at the planning table around 10:00 in the morning and by 5:00 p.m. that same day we had planned the whole entire guest house. It was a joy working with you and I was amazed at how easy the process was.”

“Maine Cottage samples and furniture made it so easy to choose what I wanted. The colors are so well coordinated and the furniture is on a scale that fits in most any size room. So, we didn’t have to second guest our choices. I love the finished look and am very pleased with everything. The furniture, colors and fabric are always cheery and pleasing and not one that you would get tired of looking at. Thanks for all of your help and your friendship in this process. Thank you, too, for the quick follow-up with any questions I had after the job was finished.”
All the best, Judy R.

Maine Cottage was mentioned in a recent article in Real Simple magazine, Your Decorating Style Defined as a “Cozy Casual” style.

“Cozy Casual” is a good description of what the Maine Cottage style is, for the most part, all about. A simple, timeless design sensibility in fresh collaborative colors and fabrics – for an elegantly relaxed lifestyle. Of course, we’re open to your interpretation too. Below are a few highlights from the Real Simple article.

“Cozy Casual is a warm, traditional look made for relaxing with family and friends. Draws on English and early-American furniture designs, as well as laid-back country, cottage, and farmhouse styles. Weathered, low-maintenance furnishings are easy, inviting, and built for daily life. Think golden retrievers, fuzzy slippers, and just about any movie by Nancy Meyers.”

* Plush upholstery, often slipcovered, with roll or square arms and skirts or ball feet
* Indestructible tables with turned legs, trestles, or substantial pedestal bases
* Warm wood tones with rustic or distressed finishes
* Natural fabrics, like cotton and wool
* Solid textiles, simple stripes, or unfussy florals in muted colors

Welcome to October with a more gargantuan post than usual (apologies for image load time). It was so much fun looking at orange “things” we thought we’d share the visual experience. Red-orange, orange, and yellow-orange are hues that pop! They are warm and uplifting. Full of a joyful energy and zest that’s hard to resist.

Our Maine Cottage Monty loves mango too: Grand Mum, Pure Linen and Sea Biscuit. Paint drops (from top): buttercup, mango, sun, white, ale, pear and clay.

Andy Warhol’s portrait of Lucille Ball (scroll down) says it all with that carrot top hair and hilarious expression. Maine Cottage mango is a striking orange too in fabrics and as an accent color. Combine it with other warm colors, including greens and neutrals for balance and good cheer. The right blue emphasizes contrast.
