Giving Your Home a Country Theme
Country style is definitely back! Country-themed decors give a home a warm, inviting, and nostalgic feel, making your abode a relaxing place to be in. Here are some suggestions on what decorations you may want to place throughout your home so it can have a primitive country look.
Decors made of yarn are perfect for country-style homes. You can use knitted table covers, crocheted seat covers, or embroidered rugs to adorn your furniture. Decorate throw pillows with floral-designed covers and arrange them throughout on the couch, on chairs, and around corners. You can even use raw balls of yarn as decorations! Buy a dozen of heavy-weight yarns at craft stores. Make sure you choose different colours; the more colours, the better. Place the balls in a nice-looking basket or large wooden country bowls. Putting in some long wooden knitting needles adds a nice touch.
If you want a little bit of indoor vegetation, hang some berry garlands around door frames. You can also hang some on chandeliers, wall lamps, and window sills. Fresh flowers are a staple in country-themed settings. Choose brightly coloured flowers, arrange them in a bouquet, and place them in earthen vases. Beautiful floral arrangements will surely add colour and warmth to the house.
For the kitchen, replace your standard spice and herb containers with those that resemble rural houses and buildings. In fact, some stores sell in sets, creating a tiny village in your kitchen. You can also buy gingham fabric, and then cut them into strips. Tie them as bows around basket handles or on hanging pictures. You can also knit other knick knacks for dramatic touches, such as welcome mats, covers for vases, or placemats.
These are just some of the many ways to create a tranquil, country-themed home.
