Long gone are the days when country living was associated with traditional florals, farmhouse furniture, knitted tea cosies and egg baskets! Now, the look isn’t just a style reserved for those living out in the countryside: it’s a popular interior trend that works beautifully for most styles of homes. A timeless and classic choice, this style is inspired by rural living and farmhouse spaces.
The key to country-inspired décor is achieving a balance between old and new – traditional, without becoming kitsch, and contemporary without looking too modern and sleek. Old-fashioned comfort brought into the modern world through its heritage and charm – creating a cosy feeling that celebrates the good life outdoors – minus the frills and lace doilys.
A successful country style will combine the best elements of rustic and vintage interior designs, with warmth, personality, character and a hint of minimalism. From colour and texture to furniture and pattern, here at LIV For Interiors, we have collated the best design and decorating tips to help you achieve a stunning modern country look in your own home.
