Country Home Decor brings the outdoors into the home. Imagine living in a setting where the freshness of nature surrounds you. There is no better way to live! Country decor does not need to be expensive and is an environmentally friendly way to decorate a home.
Artful combinations of nature's items bring a new dimension. Some use twigs for drapery rods or grapevines for wreaths. Add wild dried flowers such as lavender, rosehips, bay leaves, and pine cones for variety. If you live on a farm or have relatives that are farmers, you can make use of those old wash boards and galvanized bath tubs. Fireplace mantles made from old fences is what we used cause that's all we had. Even outhouses have found new life!
Have you considered those everyday objects around the house that can be recycled into objects of beauty? Create country decor by sewing hand made quilts from old dresses, or curtains from hankies. Simmer potpourri on a pot belly stove and fill your room with the smell of cinnamon sticks roasting on an open flame. Dad's socks can become Christmas stockings and Grandma's doilies can be made to protect your furniture or for setting a flower pot.
Country home decor comes simply by observing every day objects imagining endless possibilities. Patch work quilts over an Abe Lincoln bed cozies up an empty room. Country decor is a bird's nest set in grape vines hung over a front door. Making something out of almost nothing is country. The feeling of going back home to our stomping grounds. Painting rocks, painting on old books, skates or old windows. Country is the time of the Prairie days or when mom rang the dinner bell with the old cow bell. Country candles, cinnamon sticks, tart warmers, colonial tin lighting, old pottery and dishes brings a memory of good times not forgotten.
Bring the outside in with country decor and cast your imagination free for the possibilities!
