A break from stressful city life is sometimes exactly what we need after a busy day. Surrounded by nature and with views the green and gold, we can relax and let our mind wander. But when the next lake or forest is far away, there's only one solution: fake it! Create a whole country world inside your town or city apartment and give yourself the option of a country retreat, even when you aren't there. Country Chic is the latest interior trend that’s sweeping the suburbs, so we’re going to show you how easily even a little country flair can be conjured up in your home.
A classic interior in country chic. And what wonderful country style wooden furniture we find too. With this one, it’s really the nice little details that make the place so charming, the rustic displays of wood and steel that litter the interior walls, all the way up to the ceiling.
What do we connect with nature? A blue sky, lush greenery and bright flower colours? These colours can also style our Country Chic interior! Thus, the interior style retains its light and relaxing nature: pastel shades like light green, pale pink and light blue recommended do a lovely job. Our tip: Test colour out on a feature wall first, see how it goes and if you need to take it further.
Fresh flowers and floral prints are all the rage for Country Chic styles. But even here, caution should be exercised in the respect of down toning; you don’t want to overpower the design with flowers or you might end up with too many flowers!
Comfort is an important factor in Country Chic as comfort is, of course, a primary need of any room. A comfortable bed and large, soft cushions offer us the ideal retreat.
As we can see here, the Country Chic looks more elegant with a little more of a sedate colouring plan.
If you can’t do pastel colours, we advise you to use some extraordinary wallpapers. But a brick face is always a good answer for a country theme and it’s sure to go a long way.
For additional inspiration, we’ll show you the ideal Country Chic for outdoors. Our tip: A hanging basket is not only good on the terrace, but also on the balcony; wonderfully fresh and invigorating. If the view from the balcony leave something to be desired, even better.
