What is a Country Chic Home Design Style?

 

Life in the country gives all the warm feelings of relaxation, comfort, and a rustic disconnect from the hustle and bustle of city life. The good news is you don’t have to be hours outside of the city limits to bring elements of country living into your home. 

 

There are several ways you can bring in the country-chic vibe to your home.

 

Bring the farm inside with animal-inspired décor:
Bring a little bit of the country inside! Liven up your living room with large animal paintings or hang some antlers above your fireplace. You can add in green plants in the corner of the room or green succulents on the coffee table décor to give an earthy, comforting feeling to the room. In the bedroom, incorporate animal print wallpaper and throw pillows to give it a country chic feel. Use animal print rugs to create a conversation area and pair it with comfortable seating to entertain guest.

Incorporate wood into your living space:
Sliding Barn Doors are a hot trend right now. They are great for creating an aspect of whimsy and vintage style to the home and are a great alternative to regular closet doors or covers for your TV. Add in other wooden décor pieces like a rustic side table, or a driftwood center piece on your kitchen table. These kinds of fabulous decorative accents add a sense of rustic elegance to a modern home design. I love the dark wood beams in the pic below.  It creates a great contrast to the muted walls.

Build character with imperfect furnishings and floors
Incorporating reclaimed wood or recycled wood adds to the living space, choosing furnishings and flooring with imperfections, scratches and cracks are all incredible details that add great character to your home. Designing a space with the Country Chic aesthetic in mind means finding a way to highlight the best of both worlds – the quiet comfort of country living, and the elegant sophistication of city living. Creating that balance will leave you with a space you can enjoy year round, regardless of your location.
