If you’re wanting to update the look and feel of your home through your decoration style, one option that you might want to go for is more of a country chic look. This is a very trendy style that can help your home to look bigger and brighter as well as helping you and your family to feel comfortable with all of the homey touches, regardless of whether you live out in the country with a tractor in your backyard or not.
To help you see how you can accomplish this style in the decor of your home
Embrace Softer Colors
One of the signature elements of a country chic home is the use of soft colors. By using softer, even pastel colors around your home, you can easily achieve a country chic look in any room or around your entire home.
If you’re up for doing some bigger changes, you can repaint the cabinets of your kitchen or bathroom into white or a soft gray color. And for the other piece of furniture that you have around the house or accent colors that you’re wanting to use around your space, choosing other lighter or pastel colors can help to give your home a very distinct country chic look and feel.
Use Something Vintage
Another element of country chic style hearkens back to ages of the past. Ideally, to get a real country chic look, you’ll want the pieces that you use to decorate your house to feel vintage to you, whether they actually are or not.
If you’re wanting to have real vintage pieces, you can consider doing a lot of your shopping at vintage stores or secondhand shops. You could also ask your family or friends for older pieces they have that they aren’t using anymore. Additionally, one way to make furniture look more vintage is to give it a distressed look by sanding off a bit of the paint to make it look like it’s been well loved over the years.
Something else that you can employ throughout your space to give it more of a country chic vibe is to use all kinds of patterns wherever you can. These patterns can be used as wallpaper, tablecloths, couch covers, accent pillows, other linens, and more.
Some of the most common country chic patterns to use include things like florals, gingham, plaids, and stripes. Especially when used in a lighter, softer, more pastel color, these patterns can really help take your home decor to the next level of country chic.
If you want your home to have more of a country chic style with your decoration, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you see how you can easily make this happen in your space.
