Country Charm

Is it just me, or country style decor is having it big these days? I’m not particularly into the rustic look, but I might just change my mind after seeing the latest Elle Decor feature on the work of designer Virginia Tupker of Virginia Tupker Interiors. While country style itself can mean different things in different parts of the world ( French, English, Swedish country and so on ), the All-American rustic decor is characterized by understated interiors, furniture pieces with clean, straight lines and minimal ornamentation, exposed beams and hardwood heart of pine flooring with an overall natural, simple look. But simple doesn’t mean less sophisticated, on the contrary! There’s a recent avalanche of great American country décor that is both chic and country charming.

I can’t get over how amazing these interiors by Virginia Tupker are! She created a simplet neutral canvas of grey toned woodwork and gave it life with exotic fabrics, lots of pattern and color.

The roughness of the natural textures coming through hardwood flooring, exposed stonework and beams is softened by delicate cotton bedding and window treatments.

The furniture is an eclectic mix of Swedish, French and Colonial 17th-18th century antiques that blend together to create a fresh contemporary country style that I wouldn’t mind making my own. What about you? Leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you.
