The country house style is very popular – it is a new and softer variant of the rustic decor, a little more exquisite and elegant. It’s still very cozy and very welcoming and maybe a little more formal than the usual rustic decor. If you plan to design your home in this style, start in the heart – from the bedroom!
Color schemes and textures
The farmhouse style is characterized by neutral, white, and off-white colors. You can also add some pale pastel colors for a sweet touch or some black for a drama. Add Buffalo Check to make the space more catchy and work with textures to avoid boring looks. Wood, wicker, different types of fabrics, fur, metal, and even leather will make your space more interesting and eye-catching. You can incorporate these textures into your bedroom decor in a number of ways: with upholstered furniture, vintage or modern wooden items, fur rugs and blankets, baskets for storage, and spherical metal chandeliers.
Furniture and decor
Decide whether you want a modern or a vintage country-style bedroom and your furniture and decor choices will depend on it. If it’s a vintage space, give preference to vintage-style shabby chic furniture. If it’s a modern room, you can boldly go for modern furniture that you like and that fits. If you want to give the space the feel of a Spanish or Provencal farmhouse, think of forged beds and whitewashed furniture. Finish it all off with appropriate decor like artwork, signs, gallery walls, potted greens, wreaths and voila – your bedroom is super inviting!
Storage and organization in the kitchen is essential as it is a functional area where you wash, cut, cook, and store many things that you may need anytime. What should you do if your kitchen is small and you still need a lot of storage? The answer is obvious. Just use your walls to store all of these things. What are the best ways to use them?
Open kitchen shelves
Open shelves are the best idea for any type of storage as they are airy and light and don't look bulky even in the smallest of spaces to do the storage function well. Buy a pair or adapt it to your space yourself, whether it's a small corner or a large open shelf running along the entire wall. You can make wooden or metal shelves, or even add boxes as open storage shelves.
Built-in shelf in the kitchen
Built-in shelves or cabinets are cool and convenient. Make them right in the wall. You can open them or provide them with doors to hide the stored parts and to organize the space clearly. If your walls are thick enough then you can easily add some niche shelving and the lack of storage space problem will be solved.
Wall brackets and coat hangers for the kitchen
Attach coat hangers and holders for cups, dishes, pans and even groceries to the walls. This is a cool idea for any kitchen. Wood or metal is up to you, just make them solid and sturdy so as not to break your cups. Spices, plates and dishes can be conveniently stored in IKEA frames and rails. Peg boards are always perfect for attaching some hooks, holders and hangers. Here they are very functional.
