Country Living Country Color Combinations: Decorating Solutions for Every Roomby Country Living
Use the color palette, style, and elegance of Country Living magazine to make everyone feel welcome and at home in every room. This decorating style features irresistible pairings of hues, from elegant blue-and-white china to the mellow green and cream shades of classic kitchens. Find out why these combinations work so well and how to use them to enhance your home.
Each color theme begins with a palette of ten shades that are showcased in the extraordinary rooms that follow, along with additional tints and tones, as well as contrasting accents.
Field & Woodland captures the foliage, berries, and grasses of the changing seasons. Ocher walls are a perfect background for gold and brown furnishings that have flashes of russet and blueberry.
Sun, Sea & Sky plays with the contrasting character of cool waters and summer warmth. Sunshine streams down a yellow painted hallway, cooled by the soft grayblue of the woodwork. Bold striped rugs and plain wood furniture add a nautical air.
Flowers & Blossom provides a rainbow of hues from country gardens and cottage borders. The pinks and greens often found there will inspire a host of paint colors, fabrics, and accessories once you let your imagination loose.
Kitchen Garden mixes fresh, crisp fruit and vegetable shades. There's no need to restrict this palette to the kitchen-try layering deep raspberry pinks with paler pastel colers against cream walls in a bedroom.
Slate & Stone reveals the subtleties and textures of natural materials, along with elegant, restful hues. Painted dining room furniture and simple checked fabric cushions provide mellow putty tones, while a table set with crystal and white china adds sparkling highlights.
These color combinations work because they are comforting to live with and are classics you'll never grow tired of.
