Great Country Decorating Ideas
by Marion Jones
For those who live in the country decorating ideas are not hard to come by. Personally speaking, I find that a
lot of my inspiration comes from the world around me. When I say that, I don't mean that I use the most obvious
aspects of the country around me, only that if you look hard enough you'll always find a subtle mixture of country
decorating ideas that you will be able to incorporate into your own home decor.
Doing your home up with country decorating ideas is all well and good but if you don't make it blend in
naturally with its surroundings your house will stick out like a sore thumb or like an invader upon the glory
of nature. Surely, you have looked at a house in the country and thought to yourself: how beautiful and peaceful it
was, and how much you'd really like to live there?
Have you ever wondered why this was so? Without a doubt, it was for its simplicity and elegance, together with
the fact that it blended in so well with its surroundings. If you live in the country, you're probably unaware of
what I'm talking about and you are wondering why I 'm going on about it. Perhaps you've lived in the country most
of your life and you just don't see what is that wonderful about the old country decorating ideas and houses that
blend in with nature.
After all, a country house is just like any other house that you can find anywhere else. Or so you would think.
Well, I think you'd be wrong on that score! Country houses are a sight for sore eyes for those people who have been
living in a concrete jungle. So, if you're fortunate enough to live in the country savour the fact.
With a home in the country decorating ideas should be flooding into your head every moment of the day and with
only a little planning on your part, you can make your everyday country house into a cozy country retreat. The only
drawback I've noticed with this so far is the number of ideas I receive from my environment.
That might not sound like a bad thing, but trust me, there's nothing worse than having country decorating ideas
pouring into your mind with almost no pause and not being able to put them all into practice.
However, when this flow begins, I just sit back and let it consume me. I've always found that there is no use
fighting against the inevitable, although a little dreaming never did hurt anyone. If the sparks of inspiration
I've had are really good and they grip my attention, I take down detailed notes about what I've dreamed up.
So, no matter whether the idea is to alter your home into a country residence, or whether you just want to
redecorate the home you already have with country decorating ideas, the inspiration should be easy to come across
and just as easy to put into place. A country home is the right place to be to rest from your stressful working
