A Fresh Look at Contemporary Country DecorBook - 1999
Emphasize nature, simplicity, and a refreshingly down-to earth lifestyle in interiors that capture the best and the newest in country design. No longer does rural style mean cozy, cluttered rooms with frilled and piped soft furnishings; instead, it has become streamlined, relaxing to the eye, and easy to maintain. Try out this updated approach with its flowing fabric hanging simply from curtain poles; cushions lightly trimmed with buttons, solid wooden furniture with distressed surfaces; minimal accessories; and natural materials. Eight key contemporary country looks are showcased, with ideas for translating them into a distinctive look for every area in the home: Rustic, with its layered tweedy woven checks and warm tones; the creamy neutrals of Naturals; the mellow pale pastels of Romantic; the sleek lucid lines of Monotone; the deep red velvety textures of Modern Rose; the dazzling blues and sun-bleached whites of Nautical; summery Fresh Floral; and Creative Color. It's a whole new mood in country style!
