Kudos to country stylePublished on May 1, 2013

  • Decorated by Nicole Savoie

Country style features classic elegance that promises to never go out of style. It is cozy in feel and romantic in atmosphere.

Colours are often  muted as in a watercolor painting, such as pale gray, sky blue, apricot, or rich, natural-dye shades of rust, terra-cotta, mushroom and creamy white.

Pattern, pattern and more pattern, lavishly layered one on top of another. Start with a bold design, then complement it with a mix of smaller scale stripes, florals, plaids or geometrics.  Use colour as a unifying force to pull all these disparate patterns into a cohesive and appealing whole.

Accessories are the endearing heart of country style.  Add framed family photos, folk art prints and a rag rug.  Don't forget the flowers, fresh, dried and wild, for the ultimate country look.

Decorating country style finds beauty in functional simplicity, welcomes wear and tear, and still looks terrific year after year.
