The Traditional Country House Style

posted on 1 May 2011 | posted in General Info


One of the great secrets of creating the old country house style is to ensure that rooms are furnished using antique or vintage products, and that period features are used where possible.

Tatty or shabby chic items are fine, just so long as they are nice quality and authentic vintage products. Antique and classic vintage items, sitting comfortably together, from different eras, are what create the unqiue country house style.

The individual style for an old country house would have evolved gradually, often over centuries, so there isn't a sense of 'high design'. Therefore, you can easily and cheaply recreate this style by finding old period homewares and vintage products found at flea-markets and auction sales.

It's very creative too. You'd be surprised at the great stuff out there!
