Whether or not you live in a country home, a Country Chic style can be adapted wherever you live. This classic style is timeless and elegant, a reflection of nature and the finer side of rural living.
The heart of the home will be a cosy fireside seat watching the flickering embers or in the kitchen where fresh fruit and vegetables are arranged in colourful, luscious displays. So even if you don’t have a fire, you can still make the most of the kitchen and dining areas.
Organic materials are key to this look, choose woollens, linens and cottons for soft furnishings, along with wood and stone for surfaces.
Thick, interlined curtains not only minimise drafts making the room cosy in the Winter, but the added plumpness has a distinct air of luxury.
Floral and botanical prints & embroideries as well as leafy designs bring the onlooker ever closer to the great outdoors, the very basis for a Country Home.
Colours can be fresh and energising, lifting the spirits. A luscious green for instance will inject a mood of Spring time and will work well in kitchen and dining areas. In contrast, rich, warm colours can sooth and relax making them perfect for the sitting room.
The right lighting will enhance the ambience in your Country Chic Home. Choose pendant fittings with a warm light not a white light. Table lamps and standard lamps will illuminate darker corners and provide extra lighting where needed. Candles can be incredibly atmospheric and romantic too!
A true Country Chic style will have a look that glides through the seasons. This can be achieved almost effortlessly by changing cushion covers and occasional throws. Floral and food displays will also help to create your seasonal vibe. If you have the budget, rugs and paintings are also a quick and easy way to change the mood from Spring to Summer and from Autumn to Winter.
