In the Country Style

At once rustic and elegant, todays country homes celebrate the simplicity and respect for tradition that define country style. Inspired by the breathtaking beauty of the countryside and the simple yet exquisite furnishings of farm folk, country is a style that exudes comfort and warmth.

Every nation has its own interpretation of country style, each with its vernacular architecture and local artistic traditions. But while country retreats may show variation in style, the themes of family, home, community, and nature prevail whether the house is a sprawling ranch in Montana, a thatched-roof cottage in the English countryside, or a quaint villa in the heart of Tuscany. In the Country Style showcases four traditions-Frencb, English, Italian, and American each distinctive in its individual style yet all sharing the grace and comfort essential to country decorating. In this handsome, beautifully photographed volume you'll find ideas for:

  • Bringin the colors, patterns, and textures of country style to your house and garden, whether you admire the cheery blues and yellows of Provencal fabrics, the earthy terra-cottas of Italian floor tiles, the floral chintzes of English armchairs, or the graphic beauty of Amish quilts.
  • Combining rustic country furniture and antiques with comfy upholstered pieces and treasured flea market finds to create a sense of history in every room.
  • Adding architectural details such as rustic ceiling beams, stone flooring, or welcoming fireplaces to imbue a space with unmistakable character.

For home decorators who long to incorporate the charm of country style into their own spaces, this beautifully photographed and expertly written volume offers wealth of exciting ideas.
