Country decor is the most sought after of all the styles mainly because of the warmth and coziness it creates.
Crocks, candles and baskets decorate the comfortable and inviting spaces.
The floors are pine or oak with braided rugs while folk art and still life paintings garnish the walls. Cut flowers, herbs, berries and wreaths are seen throughout.
While distressed jelly cabinets, wood shelves and quilt racks fill the rooms; muted hues of burgundy, navy, tan, and green are found in handmade quilts and window treatments. Gingham checks and florals are favorite pattern choices.
Geese, sheep, birdhouses and angels are very popular decorations in this style. You see them in window treatments, wallpaper and bathroom coordinates. Besides wallpaper, borders and stencils on painted walls are typically found.
People who decorate in true American Country; generally long for the life created by this simpler time from our past. To them it is not just a decorating style but a way of life. Simple and practical are synonymous with country living.
