Fabrics and Furniture
Furniture should be sturdy and useful and made in oak, pine (natural not bright orange!) or painted in white or cream. A wooden dresser is an essential piece of furniture as somewhere to display your crockery. Some iron furniture may be introduced, for instance in a metal bedstead. Sofas and armchairs should be squashy and comfortable.
When you have your basics in place you can have fun with choosing your country style fabrics. Natural fabrics are best - such as cotton, linen and wool. Fabrics can have designs of florals, checks, spots and even birds, all in soft colours such as pastel blues, pinks and greens. Fabrics don't have to match, in fact it's better if they don't but they do need to complement each other and be of a similar scale. Use as a curtain fabric, upholstery fabric or for blinds and cushions.
