Country Home Accessories
by Lisa French

Description: Tips for decorating your home with a country feel.

Country home décor is the most sought after home interior and it’s no wonder since country décor invites a casual friendly lifestyle. Make sure you carefully study the specific style, and color scheme then carefully coordinate the colors of each element of your country décor. Be consistent in your choice of home interior color, styles and materials so as to avoid a patchwork look that is indicative of bad planning. Although the kitchen is primarily a working area little touches can make a big difference.

There are many decorative touches you can add in your kitchen:

§ Pie safes or glass door cabinets for displaying antique china,
§ Hanging potted plants from the ceiling or placing them in the window.

You can also display:

§ Cookbooks
§ Wooden spoons
§ Bowls or baskets of fruits or vegetables
§ Vases of fresh flowers
§ Pottery
§ Old tin canisters

Pot racks are great for hanging:

§ Copper pots
§ Baskets
§ Dried herbs

You can add a touch of country to your bathroom simply by adding:

§ Old glass jars, which are great, for holding cotton balls, Q-tips, or a fresh flower.
§ Decorative baskets, a galvanized pot, or a wine rack used in the bathroom are good for holding towels
§ Baskets and pots can hold magazines, books, towels, oils, soaps, shampoos, sponges and lotions.

Shelves can be used to display a collection of:

§ Knickknacks
§ Candles
§ Potpourri
Don’t forget you can hang pictures or display your kid’s artwork, in the bathroom.

You will want your living room to have a comfortable lived in look that will make your family and friends always feel welcome.

§ A chair
§ Table
§ Lamp
§ Rug

Some charming accents can be displaying:

§ Beautiful hand made quilts
§ Throw pillows
§ Rugs

In your living room you can also arrange:

§ Candles
§ Potpourri
§ Plants
§ Flowers
