A Bit of Country in the Home


Visitors: 179

For many people, bringing a country style into the home is a decorating theme that evokes comfortable, rustic feelings.

With there being so many ways to decorate each room in your house, plenty of country options are available as one way to model your home - and there are window shutters available that will perfectly match that style.

Country decorating is meant to invoke feelings of a warm, cosy home, so many of the colours used to paint walls should be earth tones. Images of wrought iron used in picture frames and bed frames are also a great way to decorate a room with country flair.

When it comes to a rustic charm, using natural colours and textures embodies the culture of simple, country living. Country home decorating can be easily achieved when you choose to decorate using ceramic bowls, pottery and wooden accents on wall hangings and attachments.

Simplicity is also key when it comes to decorating the ultimate country style, meaning taking the time to clear clutter and select a few centrepieces in the room to focus on. For example, this can mean focusing the room off of one piece of furniture, including a rustic table, printed couch or stylish rug.

What's more, you can bring in a bit more of the country with baskets stuffed with fresh flowers or farmers markets vegetables, and be sure to embrace country crafts with do-it-yourself decorations. It's all the better if you boast wooden floors in the room as well. Wooden floors, panels and ceilings are an ultimate image of country decor, bringing back the feeling of a log cabin or natural home.

Flowers are also an integral part in country decorating, and can also be promoted in formal window dressings including curtains and drapes. The country cottage look can inspire floral prints that can be used in all rooms. Flower prints, lace curtains and detailing on blind rails can all add subtle country charm to a home. The country look is often thought of as pretty, and there are plenty of options to add the look to your home.

As you can see, by choosing the right decor, your home can have the country look and charm that you're looking for. Window shutters can be a key part of those decorations, as they provide an aesthetic addition to the home through different styles that will fit in with a country style.
