How To Decorate Your Home Using The Country Home Decorating Style

Author: Jude Wright

There are many styles of decorating one's home. One of the most popular ones today is "country home decorating." Country home decorating involves a casual friendly lifestyle, much like the country lifestyle is often about.

To make your home reflect country home decorating, you should have each room of your home incorporate the theme. The main elements of this theme are the following:

- Using harmonious colors that do not clash with each other in your rooms, which helps to make the whole scheme come together.

- Achieving balance with the main pieces of furniture you place in your rooms;

- Carefully placing each piece of furniture so that the purpose it was made for can be fully utilized and you gain the most benefit from owning it.

You want the rooms to exhibit simplicity and restfulness, much like what the country life revolves around. This is why you should only have the pieces of furniture in a room that you truly will use. You also should not use many colors. In addition, the color scheme you use should be based on the same family; you should not mix shades, as this will totally distort the image of country home decorating.

Your home should also provide an atmosphere with quality objects that have good shapes and color-combinations. You should take your time in furnishing your home with the "right items," as rushing on what items to put in your home will likely lead to wrong choices and wasted money. After some time, you'll learn what pieces of furniture and furnishings you aren't using, and can therefore get rid of and replace with pieces that have colors and shapes that are congruous with your room's theme and are provide a more useful purpose.

You should make sure that the lighting fixtures and picture frames all blend in well with the style of furniture you furnish your home with. You should also hang appropriate pictures that match up with your furniture style as well.

It's very important to have a unified theme when you're decorating the interior of your home using a country home decorating style.

Another main element of country home decorating is that warmth and charm are evident in all the furnishings. Using natural-tone furniture, like oak or pine, constructing your floors from natural wood, flagstone, or tile, and using wood blinds or cafe curtains with checkered or floral patterns can help show this element of warmth and charm you'd expect to find in a country home setting.

Other main elements you want to emphasize in your country home include comfortable sofas and recliners, open fires in fireplaces, many books, and the lighting where you have as much sunlight as possible during the day and many lamps that provide good reading light at night.

A country home emphasizes simplicity, balance, good harmony amongst all the furnishings of a room, and the warmth and charm that such elements bring to the room. Using natural-toned furniture like oak and pine and natural substances to create your floors, like natural wood or flagstone, will also add to the country home atmosphere. When these elements are combined together in a pleasing manner, you'll experience the country warmth, charm, and tranquility in your home.
