Country Decorating

Charming Guest Bedroom

Create a rustic headboard using antique doors.

Aqua and green accents, a cosy throw, delicate bedside table lamps, a pastel striped rug, and pale blue hat boxes soften the rustic wood elements in this country chic bedroom. A wicker trunk placed at the foot of the bed is the perfect resting place for luggage.

Pretty Farmhouse Kitchen

Crisp white and black cabinets and counters keep this design fresh.

A charming apron sink, shaker-style cabinetry and dark oiled-soapstone counters infuse this kitchen with farmhouse style.

Mixed Kitchen Lighting

A distressed harvest table contrasts glam cabinets and lighting.

A kitchen lighting system that layers an antique chandelier, antique wall sconces, pot lights mounted under the cabinets and a candelabra with taper candles is visually stunning but also allows the flexibility to create any type of mood. Herringbone patterned hardwood floors only add to the European country, luxe look. Framed French doors and leaded glass cabinet doors elevate the kitchen's high style even more while milk stools used as seating around the harvest table keep it casual and comfortable.

Nature Inspired Kitchen Wall

An earth friendly kitchen in stone, wood and tile.

The stone wall in this rustic kitchen is highlighted by salvaged wood beams and white tile. Floor made from flagstone and reclaimed hemlock wood mirrors the stone wall panel and timber ceiling. A painted white island with a stone top is used for food prep, add teak stools so it can double as a seating area. Pendant lighting that is simple makes it modern.

Painted Bedroom Furniture

Painted vintage pieces, a wrought iron headboard, beadboard panelled walls and a floral bedding set deliver country cottage decorating style.

Hand-me-down side tables and wicker chairs can be instantly revamped with a few coats of paint. Cherry red paint injects the side table with farmhouse charm, while some light distressing furthers the rustic feel.

Romantic Cottage Bathroom

Antique furniture in warm blue-green shades and a softly draping curtain add romance and country charm.

Wood walls and a rustic ceiling, both painted a fresh vintage white, brighten a cottage bathroom with beautiful windows, fixtures and natural light.

Country Cottage Dining Room

Pale yellow walls and fresh bouquets of hydrangeas give this room a fresh, cottage appeal.

Double French doors open onto the terrace, bringing the outdoors in; wicker dining chairs and a lantern pendant light add a dash of country charm.

Country Style Living Room

Ticking and red check fabric are classic choices that further the cottage aesthetic.

Antique furnishings, casual fabrics, vintage collectibles and folk art pieces come together to create an eclectic and cozy living room.

Arts & Crafts Kitchen

A creamy palette adds charm to a remodeled space.

This kitchen is new but feels original to the home. The old-meets-new design was achieved with Shaker-style cabinets, a tongue-and-groove ceiling and vintage-look hardware. A footed cabinet houses the appliances, and sets it apart from the rest of the room. Meanwhile, the paneled dishwasher to the right of the sink cleverly masquerades as drawers.

Cottage Bedroom Design

Dwell Studio bedding, painted wood walls and fresh flowers give this room summer style.

An old coat rack that resembles the shape of a headboard makes a charming addition to this bedroom. Mismatched side tables enhance the casual aesthetic of the space.

Rustic Kitchen Design

A beautiful blend of wood counters, modern furniture, cream-coloured cabinets and hardwood.

A balustered island topped with reclaimed wood, apothecary jars filled with faux robin’s eggs and industrial-style stools add character and a sense of history to this rustic kitchen.
