Transform your home into a characterful country cottage *

Country chic is fast becoming the new trend for the home. With its warming, calming and relaxed vibes, everyone is trying to bring a touch of that country charm inside this year.

There are so many ways to inject country style into your home, from adding statement pieces of furniture to adding small accessories and changing up your colour schemes, why not try some of these ideas if you’re wanting to transform your home.

Step up your furniture game

Budget depending, adding large chunky pieces of furniture to any room can completely transform the look and feel. You can go from minimalistic and cold to cosy and warm in an instant. Wanting to change up your living space? Try adding a new coffee table or bookcase which you can later add some country style décor to such as checked or knitted blankets and old-fashioned milk jars.

Think comfort in everything you do

In every country-style snippet of inspiration you will see, comfort will be at the forefront of pretty much every decision made. Think layers upon layers of cosy cushions coated in gorgeous checked fabric or featuring painted woodland animals, and chunky knitted throws that you can curl up under on an evening with a good book.

When choosing anything like this think natural fabrics and neutral or earthy colours. By doing so you’re ensuring your space evokes that calming feeling whenever you walk in.

Bring the outside, inside

When designing your space, consider bringing a bit of nature into your home. Think organic and natural when looking at accessories. Plants are a great way to interject a bit of colour and vibrance into a room. Whether you go for a small green plant to add to a bookshelf or even a larger one to sit on the floor in the corner, try encasing it in an old barrel or rustic planter to evoke that country-style vibe.

By adding wooden elements to a crisp white room, you can create the feeling of depth and warmth. Try salvaging old pieces of wood and turning them into a feature such as a candle holder or wall decoration for a couple of vintage accessories to stand proudly on. There are a plethora of DIY tutorials out there to create so many wonderful homely additions.

Experiment with adding fresh colours

Although the main colourings for a country home are very much earthy browns and neutrals such as off whites and greys, why not try highlighting your room with soft blues to channel an authentic fresh farmhouse vibe. This could be as simple as adding a couple of light blue cushions to your living space or adding soft blue vintage glass jars to sit on your kitchen worktops or shelves.

However you choose to bring the country-style chic into your home, your guaranteed to end up with a timeless and comforting look and feel in the end.
