Six interior ideas to give your home a country feel
FULL of cosy character and packed with vintage accessories, the idea of boasting a home with a country feel is one which continues to have enduring appeal.
Whether you want to give your entire living space a shabby-chic makeover or simply add a bit of country charm to your kitchen, getting the right look takes time, effort and inspiration.
Take a look at our six interior design tips and help to unlock your creative side.
1: Nothing reflects Country Living more than an amazing kitchen-diner and the key focal point in any such space should always be the kitchen table. The bigger, the better.
With painted furniture now right on trend, our Bordeaux Dining table - and its exposed oak surface - can instantly bring country chic to any home. Pair it with a dresser from the same range to add a touch of glamour and practicality to your living space.
2: Think of the countryside and you can’t help but conjure up images of traditional stately homes, packed with period charm and antique furniture. To achieve this look and give it a modern twist, try bringing a statement chair into your living space. With its patterned fabric and timeless look, our Balmoral Accent chair really is fit for a queen (or king).
3: Adding the right soft furnishings is essential if you want to create a cosy feel and one of the best ways to do it is by injecting warmth, colour and comfort through cushions. A natural look always makes any space feel bright and airy, so our Alison Red Floral Cushion is a great way to bring the feeling of outside into your home.
4: Known for their love of outdoor living and the finer things in life, such as fine wine and great food, the French also know a thing or two about interior design. Why not add a slice of Parisian style to your country kitchen look with a wooden wall clock which looks like it’s straight out of a vintage sale in the south of France?
5: No home would be complete without a large sofa on which to sit back and relax after a hard day at work, and a Chesterfield sofa is an elegant design choice which can complete any country look. A classic style icon which is again enjoying a major resurgence is our luxurious Langham 4-seater sofa. It is also available in seven different fabric colours, so you’re sure to find one which is perfectly suited to any space you have.
6: There’s nothing better than getting into a bed with fresh sheets (other than a king size bed with fresh sheets) and our Ambriella Bed Frame certainly makes a country living statement. Finished in a white wood effect, it has echoes of a bygone era and will lift the look of any room. Look forward to an early night and slip into a bed which is stylish enough to grace any country manor.
