Are You a “Little Bit Country”?



Your decorating style is personal. It says a lot about who you are and it shows in the things you buy for your home. If you find that you love things that are useful and have a patina or a little bit of rust, you might like the Country Style of decorating.

Do you have a lot of things that have weathered and peeling paint? Do you collect simple stoneware objects or things made of tin? Do you love primary colors? If so, you may be “a little bit country”. All of the Mason jar projects that you see on Pinterest these days will fit right in to this style of interior decorating.

Country Style is informal, handcrafted, simple, and rustic. The overall feeling of this style is one of ‘hominess’. Furniture pieces are comfortable and rustic. This design style is rooted in the past, relaxed, and charming.
Painted furniture, patchwork quilts, rag rugs, stoneware, and weathered metal and wood are all common items you will see.

Under the heading of the Country Design Style are:
• English Country
• French Country
• Italian Country
• American Country
• Cabin or Lodge Style
• Western, and
• Coastal
You can mix and match things from other countries’ style into your home and still be considered a Country decorating personality. What is your decorating personality?
