How To Decorate Your Home With A Charming Country Feel

Feb 8, 2008
If you're looking to decorate your home, you should consider doing it in a country theme. This style has gained a lot of popularity recently, even as the world has become more urbanized. It can take years to redecorate your house, as you wait to find the perfect components for everything. But as long as you're consciously looking for ways to decorate your house, you'll eventually get it done.

First you need to think about the main decorations of your house. This includes carpet, walls, doors, windows, curtains, and so forth. If you're really into the style, then you may be willing to replace your carpet or paint your walls. How much you're dedicated to your decorations will determine the amount of things you need to alter or replace. If you're trying to figure out how to decorate your home in a country style, then you can look at magazines that give decorating tips, or you could even look at vintage photographs of homes in the country to figure out exactly what they were decorated with.

Probably the most difficult part of decorating your home in a country fashion is actually finding all of the different decorations that will add to the overall effect. Although the style is currently popular, oftentimes you won't be able to find "authentic" decorations. Of course, you always have the option of making decorations yourself. You can find guides for making curtains, tablecloths, sheets, and all sorts of other decorations. All you need to do is pick out a fabric that you like, and get to work. If it's homemade, it will add that much more authenticity to your country décor. So if possible, look for homemade items or simply make them yourself.

Another great way to find old or vintage decorations is to go to thrift stores and auctions. You'd be surprised at the people who clean out their attics and find antique decorations. Usually they end up at one of those places. So if you've got a thrift store on the way to work, make a habit of stopping by once a week, so that you can catch all of the best decorations as soon as they come in. It will help even more if you make a wishlist of things that you feel will add a lot to your décor, that way you know what to look for when you go in. Ebay could also be a good source of decorations if you're looking for something specific.

Redecorating your entire house can seem like a daunting task when you first consider it. But the trick is to break it down until you're just redecorating one item at a time - you replace your tablecloth with a country-styled one, and you're a little bit closer to being completely done. If you try to do it all at once, you'll break your budget and it'll be a stressful experience. Country style can include any number of things, so just be aware at all times of what sort of improvements you could make.
