Casual Cottage Living Room

Colour and pattern contribute to a warm, welcoming space.

Cobi Ladner's P.E.I. retreat is filled with simple charm. "I wanted to get away from anything that looked formal," she says. The multicoloured rag rug, which warmed the floor of her first apartment, worked well with an outdoor teak table and other accent pieces in Cobi's favourite shade of "cottage green".
