Overview

 
Whether cool and pale or bright and warm, country color plays a pivotal role in bringing a stylish, cozy, and comfortable mood to rooms that emphasize the charms of rural life. Showcasing both traditional and modern country houses, celebrated interiors expert Judith Miller demonstrates how to achieve the perfect balance of colors and textures to create a warm and inviting refuge from the outside world.
In this innovative guide, colors and textures co-mingle to weave a highly original and imaginative interior that forges a powerful connection with the land around it.  And to make the book even more useful, swatches for fabrics and paints as well as codes to match paints from Benjamin Moore, Ralph Lauren, and Farrow & Ball are provided.
In New England, deep wood colors are matched with rich burgundy, while in the rural South, long porches and large, open rooms are painted in cool colors to offset the heat. In warm climates such as North Africa, Spain, and New Mexico, bright white and terra-cottas reflect the warm sand of the arid desert. The book includes sections on natural materials—wood, stone, and earth—and decorating with furniture, pottery, and fabrics.
