Keep your Country Bedroom up to Date
Bedrooms in country homes can become dated fairly quickly, with frilly floral valances and extravagant window treatments. But by picking the right country fabrics, you’ll find it easy to create a look that’s fitting but contemporary.
Keep bed linen plain and simple, and bring in colour and interest by using the windows as a focal point. A light floral curtain fabric is perfect for a feminine feel, while a relaxing stripe can really show off the master bedroom. For a child’s room, try a simple roman blind in a pastel spotted fabric or animal print.
If you have an en-suite, carry the colours through from the bedroom with accessories, a painted feature wall, or even a bath in a complementary eggshell paint.
Layering works well in bedrooms, so pile floral throws and cushions on the bed, and soften wooden flooring with a neutral woollen rug.
