When achieving a country house design, decorate the home with fresh flowers - like roses, peonies and hydrangeas.
In fact, think about what a local cottage garden might produce and then integrate it into your home. Whether it’s root vegetables gathered in large timber bowls, or freshly grown herbs to garnish your kitchen counter tops, a touch of produce will turn your home into a cottage.
When furnishing your home to suit the rustic and nostalgic feeling of Modern Country look for pieces that either feel authentic to country life, or source vintage pieces with beautiful hand craftsmanship.
If you want to integrate some modern classics amongst the older, more rustic pieces, consider rattan and bentwood. Bench seats, butchers tables, or sizeable furniture with a bit of wear each fit well within this setting.
