Wallpaper and Country Style Furniture

When choosing your country style furniture and the best wallpaper to complement it, it's helpful to first determine what your idea of “country style” really is and to decorate according to that definition. Some would say that country style furniture should be dark in color with deep brown wood and blackened fixtures, but others say that true country style is light and airy and requires all-white trim. Many people think of Amish-made furniture as the ultimate in country style, while plenty of people say that country décor shouldn't feature any furniture constructed in the last few decades. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide on your own country motif – whether it be Tuscan, English, Amish, or something else entirely different. 

Interior designers do agree that country motifs should be informal, comfortable, and without the glitz and glamour of many modern décor choices. As you select furnishings and the wallpapers to match them, consider simple settings like farms, cottages, and gardens. Country motifs tend to feature wood prominently, but can also include wrought iron, brick, stone, copper, steel, and woven objects like baskets, tables, and seating. With this in mind, applicable wall coverings can include complex pictorial patterns, checks, flowers, or faux wood grain. Think about earth tones in a variety of hues and designs. You might also consider pairing subtle wallpaper prints or even paint with a fun country-themed border. 

It may be easier than you think to create a casual and welcoming environment by combining country style furnishing and wallpaper with found objects like spinning wheels, butter churns, looms, or other showpieces that add a rustic touch to your décor. Remember that regardless of your motif, light colors tend to make a room appear larger, while darker tones add coziness. There are lots of ideas to be found online at sites like Pinterest. Better yet, contact a wallpaper professional who can discuss design ideas with you and help you realize your design dreams while staying within your budget.
