Country Home Anywhere

by Lisa Stewart 12 Jun 2012

Everyone feels at home in casual, comfortable, country-style interiors. We want to calm down and linger because they are cozy and warm like long summer days. My daughter and son-in-law are pictured here celebrating their wedding in the relaxed atmosphere of Grandmother’s country home. 

The new and updated country interiors are filled with elements that work even in fast-paced urban environments. Here’s what you can do to create country contentment in your home.

Wrap your front door with a porch 
Use subtle, low-contrast colors inside and out
Find weathered, well worn wooden table and chairs 
White wash or paint old pieces of furniture
Purchase loosely upholstered and skirted sofas and chairs  
Accessorize with flowers in vases, dishware, artwork or fabrics 

Remember, a little touch goes a long way. Be careful not to overdo. Keep a clean look. Then sit back and enjoy this delightful décor with family and friends.
