Country Home Decor Style
by Gail Jones
Your house is finally clean and tidy and you sit down and put your feet up for a minute with a nice cup of
coffee by the side of you and you pick away at your cake. You are worn out but it's that good kind of tired when
you know you've done a good day's work and you have no regrets about it.
An aura of contentment settles on you and you look around you with satisfaction. A magazine lies tantalizingly
within reach and you give in and pull it towards you, intending to enjoy your well-deserved rest. The main cover
story jumps right out at you, called Country Home Decor.
Naturally you flip through eagerly to that very section, you had just seen an article on converting your house
into a small country haven in another magazine and you were interested. There is page after page of the magazine
filled with what can only be described as the most perfect examples of country home decor you can imagine. You
gaze longingly at the various styles and furnishings you see gracing the magazine's pages.
A quick look up from your magazine reassures you that your own modest home hasn't changed somehow into one
of those lovely country houses you were just looking at. A heavy sigh passes your lips at the realization and so
you go back to reading the magazine article.
You had never thought that you were the sort of person who could live with the country home decor style but now,
upon reflection, you think you just might be able to.
Now without your even realising it, you find yourself marking the pieces that intrigue you the most, making
small maths calculations on how best to achieve the same effect but on the smaller budget that you have undert your
control. After all, it just wouldn't do to fork out for that lovely Welsh dresser and have to go without your
freshly ground whole bean coffee, would it?
However, you could definitely buy that beautiful table runner without any problem. And if you donated all those
modern chrome coffee mugs and dinner sets to charity you wouldn't really be splashing out, would you, since you
would've done your best for charity and donated all these things unselfishly?
And what about swapping those flashy blinds for something that's a bit more in the country home decor style. And
while you're going about it, perhaps you could even exchange that awful lampshade you received as a birthday gift for something more
The only thing that is left for you to do now is to sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labours and gaze with
beaming pride upon your home, newly redecorated in the country home decor style. Furnished, naturally enough,
in the best of country home decor style that you could cull from every source that you found, like that first
magazine which started it all off.
