However, we can always go further and use other styles in the decoration of country houses, such as Mediterranean or the Provencal. The variants will always fit our taste and how much we want to invest in it. Let's see some general advice. It is important in country houses to create warm and welcoming environments.
Country houses, white furniture
For this we must work with warm and neutral or natural colors in the range of brown. The ceiling can become a differentiating aspect if we add a hanging lamp. Usually those made in wrought iron are adjusted to the rustic. Bet on the wooden partitions and the higher ceilings, if the country house is still in design phase. In textiles you can use textures such as cotton or wool.

For country houses designs with flowers, animals or stripes fit very well. As usual bet on wood, especially the whites. For spaces like the dining room the antique furniture will give a unique touch. If you wish, you can give the furniture an aged appearance. Bring nature inside and do not hesitate to place flowers and plants in the different spaces. As is customary, away from areas with drafts that may affect them in the future.

Also spend some time outdoors, fiber furniture with some cushions will come great. To take the relax to another level a hammock can serve you a lot. If you do not want to add paintings or other accessories to the walls, you can cover them with wood. Even leave them bare if they are brick and thus give greater warmth to the whole. In general you can join the modern lines respecting elements of rustic design. The effect, a sophisticated and harmonious country house.
