Karndean Flooring – Country Retreat Look

Posted on 5th December 2012

You too can achieve a cosy and relaxed ‘retreat in the country’ look in your home with a few helpful hints and tips.

Keep your colour scheme quite muted and calming with milky whites and pastel tones. Think greens, duck egg blue, creams and lighter shades of pink.

Incorporate painted and rustic looking ‘antiqued’ furniture throughout your space. You can pick up some fantastic pieces on eBay or by scouring your local antique shops, flea markets or reclamation yards. Or, for an easier yet more costly option, buy these bits pre-painted and pre-worn straight from the shop. Try mixing chipped and rustic painted woods with much more contemporary solid painted furniture options.

For a modern country look, go for cleaner lines and more contemporary furniture, but soften and “country-fy” the look with accessories, antiques and hints of rustic wood. We think the mixture of blues, wood and galvanised steel and the cosy knitted throw with stacked logs in the fireplace hit the nail on the head with a perfect mix of clean modern and country style.

To complete the look, keep an eye out for quirky accessories; Lamps, antique boxes, cosy throw blankets, shabby chic style cushions, and of course, plenty of fresh (or realistic silk) flowers.
