Decorate BEAUTIFULLY with Erika Lee!
It’s said that “home is where the heart is,” and that definitely rings true in the country style of design. The simple, cozy elements featured in country decor make a home feel more lived-in and personal. Warm and inviting color schemes, classic patterns, and plain, natural furnishings play to this theme as well. Decorating Den has helped create dozens of welcoming country spaces in a variety of homes, thanks to our years of design experience and the plethora of materials we have access to.
The country style contains elements like primitive furnishings, soft colors, and vintage fabrics and prints. Previously used furnishings that feature straight lines and very little ornamentation are a staple of country design. In addition, handmade accessories like baskets, bowls, and pottery are typical of this design style.
Country design is defined by location, the two most common being English and French Country.
- English Country: This look balances accents of bright chintz floral, gingham, or plaid fabrics with tassel or fringe to enhance the feeling that you’re in the English countryside. The element of floral patterns is particularly prominent in the English country style. Many times floral wall coverings, like wallpaper or stenciled designs, are paired with decorative arrangements of china plates or paintings of landscapes.
