What is the modern country look?

A timeless and classic choice, this style is inspired by rural living but with a modern update. Celebrating the great outdoors, this relaxed and versatile look has an emphasis on nature, harnessing a chalky verdant colour palette and botanical accessories. Bleached wood, wicker and recycled glass pieces add to its calming and restorative effect.

Bring the outside in

The key to a country style living room is to incorporate lots of natural materials. Wooden furniture will add to the organic, outdoorsy aesthetic you are hoping to achieve. And don’t forget the plants – you can never have too many of those.
