A better way to shop
Not everyone has the cash to splash on making their home into an idyllic country haven, but with a little imagination and a few carefully chosen pieces, your home can be a rustic retreat.
When it comes to timeless interior design, classic country chic never goes out of style. Cosy and traditional with natural woods and warm hues, this easy style is effortlessly created with the right country furniture and a whole lot of personality. Think shabby chic with antique accents rather than box-fresh bohemia. Old ornaments, knick-knacks and homemade throws add the homely touch this look demands.
The key to this look is simplicity: look to nature for inspiration and choose strong lines complemented with soft shapes and harmonising natural colours. Comfort is also paramount. Think chairs you can sink into, lots of cushions and framed photographs and pictures that make you feel at home. Country furniture is bold and strong in sturdy, reliable and beautiful solid wood like oak or ash. Natural wood or tile floors are perfect for this look, warmed up with sheepskin rugs, but if that pushes the budget envelope too far then a new hooked wool rug is a cheaper compromise.
Don’t forget the details
The little touches and a fine balance take this look from showroom to home. Complement the masculine strength of country furniture with feminine fine points: delicate knick-knacks, soft throws and cushions and fresh flowers to reinforce the natural theme. Too much wood without relief and you’ll feel like you’re in a wood cabin rather than an idyllic country home.
