Country-style interior design is a broad term that includes elements of several decorating styles. With an emphasis on natural materials, country-style often incorporates rustic, primitive, and distressed furnishings in an unfinished or weathered state. A natural colour palette of pastels and bright colours creates a warm, intimate, welcoming appearance. The country-style of interior design has become popular with people due to its inviting, casual, welcoming, homey feel. It is easy and inexpensive to create beautiful, warm, rustic decor and here’s a peek at ten of the best blogs for do-it-yourself projects, ideas, and inspiration.
