Finding inspiration for decorating every room in your home should be simple. When you are deciding on decorating any room, you need to think practically as well as creatively. What do you really use the space for? What would you love the room to look like?
Choosing the furnishings for every room in your country home is, perhaps, the highlight of your home decorating process. Rather than hard physical labor, you must use all your mental energy to decide what sofas to have, or where the new rug should go.
Furnishing one’s own home is the icing on the cake; it’s the personality and the pizzazz that you give to your space that makes it yours and keeps it looking unique. A classic country cottage has particular furnishings which keep it looking in character.
Eco-friendly furniture can be found in all sorts of places – you can seek out the latest sleek Eco-gadgets to deliver long term affordability to your home’s energy needs, or look for pre-loved furnishings in garage sales or auctions that will give your home a lived-and-loved personality, full of stories and character, as well as being fabulously green.
Be inspired by vintage looks and antique furnishings for your home. Search for rare, genuine, one-of-a-kind item that you wouldn’t be able to buy on the high street. But don’t pay for bad quality; always check that the item is in good condition unless you intend to repair it.
In country homes from days gone by, there used to be a mixture of chair designs around the dining table that was handed down by family or locally crafted gifts. And in the living spaces, snug handmade and upholstered armchairs nestled around the fire. Recreate this elegant and homey look with vintage and antique finds.
Vintage and antique collectables vary from collections of vintage dinner plates to antique French furniture. They vary in scale as much as they do in cost, and some will take up your time and effort to find whereas others will be readily available.
Antique mirrors are beautiful, first and foremost. You can find all sorts of styles in local vintage stores and in online antique boutiques, from classic French gilt to simple driftwood. Choose mirrors that reflect your personality, and make sure that they are an appropriate size for the room.
Whatever style you prefer, there’s bound to be a restored vintage telephone for you. Not only were they practical, but telephones made in the last century were beautiful too. They can still become either a working home accessory or a beautiful collector’s piece of technology on display in your home.
