From the cover: Not everyone can make the move out of town or city, but everyone can bring a touch of the country into their own home. The country style of decorating evokes a time when the pace of living was unhurried, when decorations had a natural handmade charm, and when furnishings might be worn from use but were beautiful, long lasting, and much loved. Soft fabrics, wood and wirework, simple furniture, natural colours, folk-art patterns and motifs, scented flowers and foliage all have their place in the country home.
Country Style Home decorating the country way presents 40 projects to bring the freshness of country style into your own home, with simple but delightful ideas for every part of the room. Walls and surfaces can be distressed and colour washed, and many of the techniques use easily available materials to create highly personal pieces glorious rag rugs, cross-stitched napkins, or a folk-style pierced tin frame for a favourite photograph. Everything is practical as well as beautiful, whether a bay wreath for a door or a wirework rolling-pin holder for the kitchen.
Guidance on country colours, textures, patterns, and motifs, and lists of all the materials and techniques you need to complete each project, are included. Every design is shown with easy-to follow, step-by-step photographs for complete success, whatever your level of expertise. With Country Style Home decorating the country way to inspire you, you too can bring the country atmosphere of calm and natural simplicity into your home.
