I may be old school but I absolutely love country decorating ideas no matter the style of a house. In my opinion, there is something just so cozy and homey about rustic country decor. It makes you feel instantly welcome and loved in a home no matter the size or style. For our dining room, I wanted to go extreme with the rustic decor and make it look like a luxurious cabin in the woods. The first step to achieving this goal was finding the perfect table to anchor the design. My husband actually ended up building me this table because I couldn't find the right size or style piece for the space. Luckily I was able to find these chairs on Wayfair along with a fabulous matching chandelier.
One of my favorite things to look for lately is country decorating ideas because we just bought an 1850s farmhouse that has to be completed renovated. I really want to stick with country cottage decor that the home would have always looked like. It will be a great homage to the beauty of the original structure and it will look unique to any of our guests that are used to more contemporary looks. We are starting with the master suite so that we have a place to relax during the construction. I really liked the farmhouse bedroom ideas that this designer used to create a charming yet modern space. The floral drapes are the perfect cozy touch against the fairly simplistic color palette throughout the rest of the space.
I am always looking for creative country decorating ideas that don't look too cliche or rustic. I absolutely loved the country kitchen decor that this homeowner used because the all glass upper cabinetry actually makes the space look quite contemporary. This is balanced nicely by the gorgeous blue and white vintage pottery that is contained within the cabinets. I would love to try to recreate a version of this in our kitchen by replacing some of our regular wooden doors with glass along one wall. I would try to use a few more of their country kitchen ideas as well like the lovely copper pendant lights over the island and cute black and white tile stove backsplash.
I love how this designer mixed country decorating ideas with quite contemporary architecture. My favorite designs have always been those that play around with style and pattern, pairing unexpected pieces to create incredibly unique looks. I have always been particular to French country home decor, but have been nervous to incorporate it into my house because the color palette is oftentimes quite bold and in your face. This does not really blend well with my all-neutral home decor. However, the small touches of rustic decor ideas that they added like the gorgeous distressed green sideboard and barn wood framed mirror are the perfect level of cozy country without being too overwhelming to the rest of the space.
This client really wanted to use some country decorating ideas in their master bath. While I was initially a bit skeptical about the project because I do not have a ton of experience creating country bathroom decor, I am absolutely thrilled with how the space turned out. The room already had a fantastic large footprint so we just accentuated the size and kept the foundation simple. We extended their wood floors into the bathroom and added a lovely bead board chair rail to up the charm. Then we stuck with quite primitive decorating ideas so the architectural detailing would remain the star of the show. The homeowners were as thrilled with the end look as I was.
When it comes to country decorating ideas, I think that I finally have the perfect balance of modern and vintage pieces down pat. When my husband and I started planning our our master bedroom both of us knew that we wanted the theme to be country chic decor. We both grew up in a rural area and find rustic pieces most welcoming and relaxing. I wanted to keep with a blue and peach color palette because they are classic hues that would go well with a variety of pieces. We mixed and matched pattern and textile to create a dynamic look given that our space is so large. And we topped off the look by integrating some awesome wall decor ideas including black and white photos of the farms we grew up on, framed paintings of landscapes and a few antique prints.
