Country house style 2.0
Rustic and down-to-earth, but perhaps also a little dusty – opinions are sometimes divided on the country house style. There is hardly any other style of furnishing that changes and is reinterpreted so constantly as the country house style – and yet always retains its original character. The country house style satisfies the longing for nature and deceleration of everyday life. Anyone who has been lacking the rough edges of this idyllic style up to now is guaranteed to feel at home with Modern Country.
Old meets new.
When it comes to the Modern Country style, old meets new, tried-and-tested materials are combined with new ones. Country house flair meets industrial chic. The country house style lives from furniture made of rustic wood. For those who find this too one-sided, the modernised version of the country house style uses high-contrast elements made of steel and cast iron. They loosen things up and create playful highlights.
The country house charm can be brought home with just a few rustic accessories: candleholders, vases and bowls with (artificial) signs of wear, faded colours and rough surfaces support the country style. Materials such as earthenware and terracotta bring these properties along with them by nature and are therefore particularly suitable for the country house decor.
The flooring on which this trend is based can also be rustic: oak engineered wood flooring with an expressive grain and rough surface finish is ideal. The flooring can be both light and dark, depending on the basic mood of the room – the main thing is that it is natural and original!
