There’s just something so magical about being at your lakehouse or summer cottage and relaxing on the sofa in front of a big roaring fire in the evening. Designers who help create the most rustic design aesthetics for log homes and hunting lodges will tell you that one of the most important pieces of furniture you can buy to get this look in your cabin or cottage is a sofa.

Picking the perfect sofa or couch for your getaway home is the key to the creation of that feeling of pure country luxury and comfort. There are some very commonly used design components that show up a lot when we start looking at sofas that meet this aesthetic. Rough-hewn logs make up the structure of some of these rustic sofas, as well as dark brown leathers and intricate patterns of wool for materials. Have a look at some of the different styles available, and consider how many people you’ll have as guests, and how easy you want the care and cleaning to be.

pantone colors of the year 2016

Every year, Pantone – the color experts – release a statement revealing the upcoming year’s official color. This year, they’ve announced two. Serenity, which is a soft light blue, and Rose Quartz, a very gentle and warm pink. Pantone picks this yearly color based on what they think will be a relevant choice for the upcoming year’s trends in fashion, home décor and multiple design disciplines.

In their annual press release today, Pantone’s Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Institute, explained their decision this year to include both colors.

“In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design,”

“This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumers’ increased comfort with using color as a form of expression which includes a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged, and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.”

The 2015 color of the year was Marsala, an deep and sultry red.
