This cozy country home has so much style in such a small space. Primitive country accents, including the needlepoint pillow, checkered drapes, and roughly painted end tables, are carefully arranged throughout the open concept family room for a homey, lived in feel.  The architecture in this home is a beautiful blend of old and new. Rustic elements, like the stone hearth, old pine flooring, and reclaimed wood loft blend seamlessly with polished elements, like the crisp kitchen cabinetry, and beadboard walls. A perfect concoction of new and old in this tiny country cabin.

What is your favorite primitive country accent?

Rooms to Love: Refined Country Breakfast Nook

Rooms To Love: Refined Country Breakfast Nook

An oval table is ideal in this country breakfast nook with the half moon shaped banquet.  The soft buttercream, beige, and mahogany tones create a warm and inviting place to share a cup of coffee in the morning or a candlelight dinner at night.  Piling pillows on the banquet increases the comfort and utilizes a great opportunity for accent fabrics and fringes.  Complementing the banquet is an open weaved wicker dining chair that allows for an uninterrupted view of the table.  This space is simple yet elegant with a clear attention to country decorating design details.

Design Tip: Bring The Outdoors In

Design Tip: Bring The Outdoors In

Mother Nature can often be an inspiration for interior designing.  Bring natural elements into a space for instant depth and beauty in a room.  As shown in this room, simple colors and outdoor elements lend themselves to a care-free sophistication.

Natural elements, like flowers and greenery, are easy to change in and out with the seasons – always keeping a room fresh and updated.  Floral fabrics and natural wood furniture also lend themselves to an “earthy” air in a room.

The basic tenants of the Americana kitchen style revolve around the color choices you make.  What colors say “Americana”?  Red, white, and blue, of course!  When deciding on your color scheme, you can choose to go for brighter reds, whites, and blues, like the colors on the modern USA flag, or you can go for richer, deeper colors more associated with Colonial America (this second approach is the most traditional approach to Americana design).  The Colonial style colors are rusty reds, dark blue-grays (a la Williamsburg Blue), and beige/off white tones.
