Country style in the interior: how to create a rustic style

Sociologists say that now our life is fundamentally changing and society is moving from industrial to post-industrial. And this means that more and more people are ceasing to be motivated biorobots, moving away from the endless race for external benefits and thinking more and more about the environment and their inner state. At least where we always feel like ourselves – at home. And for this, the country style in the interior is the best fit.

Characteristic features

The most basic thing is the use of natural materials or materials imitating them in the decoration. Preference is given to wood here. Everything is made of it: furniture, floors, walls, windows and even the ceiling, using decorative beams somewhere, and functional decorative beams somewhere.

Wood is also used for decoration: they imitate or make real shutters on windows or false windows. It is used to make window frames and chandeliers.

In combination with wood in the country style, stone is also used, but in a smaller volume. It looks very good in wall decoration, especially over the fireplace. The fireplace, by the way, is another feature of this rustic style.

The walls in such an interior should be plain, but the color accents are made with textiles. It uses only joyful tones and no gloominess.

Various hand-made items are very appropriate in such an interior: frames decorated in decoupage or shabby chic technique, patchwork bedspreads, as well as wooden boxes, chests, frames from vintage sewing machines as coffee tables.

And do not forget about the plants: what a village without them. Ficuses in wooden tubs, geraniums in clay pots, convolvulus – all these are necessary attributes of the country style.

Varieties of country style

Like any other style, country music has its own varieties, formed under the influence of the geographical location of the country, national characteristics, culture and even nature. Let’s look at the features of each of them.

English country music

English country music, like the English themselves, is more restrained and thorough. Furniture is solid, high–quality, massive, often made of valuable wood. No less massive and solid sofas, armchairs, beds. It is precisely in this kind of style that wood is preferred in interior decoration. Textiles are most often checkered – the influence of a close Scotland. But carpets in the oriental manner, as a reminder of the colonial period in the history of the country.

The British are also very fond of patchwork – patchwork sewing, with which various bedspreads are made. And one more of their chips is ribbon embroidery. Pillows and paintings decorated in this technique can very often be found in the interiors of English houses.

American country music

American country is pragmatic, like America itself. Therefore, there is an abundance of leather furniture with metal inserts – for durability. Stone is preferred in the decoration: it prevails over wood. Carpets replace animal skins. And the obligatory sign of the American rustic style is a fireplace in the living room, a real one, with a live fire, and a stack of firewood, which serves as both a material for kindling and one of the interior’s chips.

French country music

The first thing that comes to mind when you say “French village” is lavender. And yes, it is lavender shades, as well as other pastel shades – beige, milky, pale yellow, bluish – that define the style of French country. In another way, it is also called “Provence” – after the name of one of the regions of the country, which was given the name by the Greeks: “provincia”, which then the French began to pronounce in their own way.

And, like everything provincial, this style is easy and uncomplicated. And such a mood is given to him by the abundance of floral ornaments both in textiles and in wall decoration. But since such ornaments are very difficult to adjust to each other according to the pattern, so as not to waste your time and nerves on it, choose seamless wallpaper. It will be much easier to cope with repairs with them.

Italian country music

Italians are very fond of pomp and gold. And this feature of their mentality is reflected even in the uncomplicated country. Here, along with the usual furniture traditional for this style, the decoration and design elements use splendor, brightness, brilliance and ornateness borrowed from the Baroque and Rococo. In the Italian country, paintings stylized as medieval masters do not seem at all alien; carved furniture legs, ornate vases and lamps.

And large arched wooden and window openings are often used here: Italians really like to have a lot of light in the room.

Swiss country

Those who have ever been skiing and lived in a chalet are well acquainted with Swiss country music – this is the second name of this style.

Initially, the chalet is a shepherd’s house. Therefore, traditionally, that uncomplicated, rough atmosphere is maintained in it. Simple wood and stone decoration of walls and ceiling, chopped furniture, a minimum of decor.

But it is necessary to have a large stove-fireplace in the middle of the dwelling, near which it is so good to warm up after long walks in the winter Alps.

German country music

The peculiarity of this kind of rustic style is primarily due to the nature of the Germans. Restraint and pedantry are his main features. Here even the furniture is arranged in a certain order, although it is not customary to adhere to this in country style.

And another feature of such interiors is the decoration of the ceiling and walls with dark wooden logs. Interconnected horizontal and diagonal elements – pillars, beams and braces – were traditionally used in the construction of German peasant houses, called half-timbered. Today, of course, other technologies are used in construction, but in interior decoration this is one of the ways to pass on traditions and immerse yourself in the old days.

Russian country

This is a familiar grandmother’s house in the village for all of us. The one where you always feel like a child, who has a big long and bright life ahead of him, but it’s easy and joyful at heart.

Indeed, it is very easy to breathe in such houses, because these are log houses made of massive logs. Russian country does not involve any of the interior decoration, so the same logs remain indoors.

But still, this style does not look rude and brutal, because exactly the opposite things are used in the design. It is based on lace knitted or embroidered tablecloths, curtains in the Richelieu technique on windows, self-woven paths, rugs and rugs, patchwork bedspreads and pillows. All this makes the interior very warm and homely.

Supporting the principle of proximity to nature, lighting for country-style rooms should be chosen with yellow light. Accordingly, no neon lamps and halogen lamps. In the center of the room there is usually a chandelier, often wooden or imitating wood. And spot light is placed throughout the home: sconces, table lamps, lamps and floor lamps with cozy lampshades resembling handmade.

By the way, in the decor, preference is given to handmade things. All kinds of tablecloths, napkins, capes, bedspreads will always be appropriate here: knitted, patchwork, homespun, braided lace.

There must be curtains on the windows, but without pretentiousness, excessive folds and lambrequins. Most often these are ordinary canvases made of natural fabric with ruffles to match.

But the most important feature of the woven country decor is bright, cheerful colors, in contrast to the monochrome walls, placing accents in the room.

Otherwise, handmade panels are used in the decor, for example, in the macrame technique. And, of course, a large number of living green plants of different sizes and shapes.
