It’s difficult to find a décor trend that allows the same level of versatility as country living. It can appear classic and timeless, yet with certain twists, it can bring a modern feel to your living space. Country houses often have the benefit of space and character features, which give them personality, but even if you’re in a new build you can still recreate this look for yourself.
This trend is filled with a rich abundance of textures. Whether it’s thick tweeds, sturdy woods or beautiful stone, filling your home with natural surfaces will help achieve it. Hides are important for a country feel, and an armchair or leather sofa like the Linear Leather, is a simple way to incorporate this into your living space. Dress these with soft, plump cushions for a luxurious place to curl up with the family.
The country style also lends itself to using a variety of woods such as pines, oaks, ashes and mahogany. As they all display different tones, it can create a wonderful mix of colours. Matching pine with a dark, supple leather or mahogany with a light, delicate linen, means you can explore a use of colour throughout the room, and keep it from becoming too light or dark.
There are finishing touches synonymous with the country style, which will create a tranquil environment for your family. Wicker baskets holding logs for the wood burner, an abundance of throws for colder evenings, displayed crockery and candles will all help here. The base colour should be neutral cream, beige, duck egg or grey, this can then be built up on with highlight colours, allowing for an expression of personality and an inviting home.
