In my search for country cottage decor ideas for our new home we are building in the Virginia mountains, I stumbled upon this fantastic luxurious yet rustic design. The combination of unique architectural elements, rich textiles, and unique mementos of their travels, creates a stately look that I am sure is a joy to curl up with guests. I would love to create a similar space in our future study and den. Rather than using antlers and pheasant feathers for wall decor, I would prefer to hang my collection of antique tapestries to bring some warmth and texture to the space. I will add an identical stone fireplace with large open hearth to provide both style and warmth on a cold winter day.
My partner and I just finished decorating this gorgous French country bedroom and could not wait to share it with you all. Our clients requested a space that has a serene color palette and a lot of homey touches to help them relax at the end of the day. French country decor seamed the natural choice due to is classic elegance and down home feel. While we did want to bring some of those rustic elements to the decor, we still wanted it to feel classic and luxurious. We found this lovely burlap upholstery bed with aged brass nailhead trim and knew that we had stumbled on the inspiration for, and centerpiece of, the room.
Throughout our home design process, my partner and I have been in a constant battle over whose decor taste wins. I love country decor but he much prefers a more contemporary design, unfortunately these two styles are not known to blend well together. After working with a designer, however, we were able to come to a decor compromise that we both truly love. If you experience similar interior design challenges, use our new modern French country living room as an example to help settle the argument. Our decorator found the perfect mix between rustic elements like wood beams on the ceiling and a statuesque stone hearth, alongside a contemporary bronze light fixture, sleek leather arm chairs and vibrant modern art.
The design found within this pictured country kitchen appeals to our need for a more homey and rustic style of life. Open and windowed cabinets lend to a more comfortable and casual nature often found within the design. Walking into this space, a visitor is given insight into the personality of the kitchen, found in the pieces out for everyone to see, such as the fruit bowls and kitchen accessories and the windowed cabinets that feature well-chosen dishes and cookware. The primitive country decor is reflected in the choice of curtains, rugs, and accessories, which add personality and color to this space. Yet, French country decor stands out as well in the dark earth tones and warm reds of the cabinetry as well as in the distressed cabinets of the kitchen island.
Hands down, country decorating ideas are my favorite way to style my home. I love the cozy effect that rustic architectural detailing, eclectic accent pieces, and the warm color palettes associated with French country decor have on a space. I have seen designs that look down home rustic like that which would be found in a rural farm house, and I have scene very chic and upscale versions that bring luxury alongside country details. One of my favorite places to use this trend is the kitchen. I think that adding French country kitchen decor to any home will instantly elevate the space and make it both enjoyable and functional.
