There is nothing cosier than a country house, with its wooden seats, comfortable blankets and cushions, flowers, plants and that beautiful feeling of warmth generated by its rustic theme. If you have or want a country house, here are some tips to decorate it as in your dreams, with the best products and the latest trends of rustic interior decoration.
Wood, your best friend
A real country house has wood and other natural materials as essential elements. Not only is the location of the house, the meadows, trees or the surroundings important, but it is important that within the house the relationship with nature continues in terms of the furniture and fabrics that are used. Rustic seats of wood, with natural braiding, or wrought iron, are very suitable for a country house. Focus on robust furniture, preferably old, or aged, in a colonial or classic style. Look for floral, leather or neutral upholstery that matches the elements you use.
Create a natural environment
Remember that a very important characteristic of a beautiful country house is the natural materials that it has. This includes the presence of stone, clay, and wood, or elements that generate a cosy and rustic atmosphere. Brick walls can be a positive choice. Keep in mind the general appearance of ceilings, walls and floors and keep a defined and congruent style in each internal space. The decorative finishes are also a central part including ceramic finishes or tiles.
Creating a cosy and beautiful space
While materials are a definitive part of achieving your ideal country home, something equally important is colour. Using colour appropriately is a key factor in successfully decorating your country home. Inspire yourself with nature, use tones that go well with wood, regardless of whether they are light or dark, but ensure they complement each other well. Green, ochre, blue, and tones between red and orange, are ideal to generate a warm and welcoming environment. You can also include the use of white in your decoration; also consider using floral print fabrics, or with landscapes, and classic stripes in earth tones.
Decoration and accessories
Beautiful country interiors include many and varied country-themed objects; choose the ones that most appeal to you, such as candelabra, figures of animals, iron elements, or horse-related items, floral ornaments, vases, ceramic dishes, or any item associated with country life. These will provide a perfect finishing touch.
When you’re finished, you’ll be able to enjoy a beautiful country house that everyone will envy. Buy some extra hot drinks and snacks because your visitors will not want to leave your house after seeing how cosy and beautiful it is.
