Although most of us don’t live in a sprawling country estate, we all yearn for a bit of that classic style – the opulence and grandeur of days gone by. Of course, we can’t just suddenly live in a luxury stately home, but there are ways that you can bring a bit of that style into your home.
It can be a challenge to blend the style with the modern home but done well it can create the perfect look – modern home mixed with traditional country house.
When it comes to the bedroom, using softer pastel shades is the perfect nod to the style, as well as the ultimate luxury – the four-poster bed! Use crisp white bed linen to add a modern and light touch and draw focus to the bed. Adding luxurious touches such as statement wallpaper and a traditional curtain pelmet.
The living room can be styled to have that luxury touch – use rich colours on walls, and fabrics such as silk and chintz in cushions to get the stately home feeling. Statement ornaments such as a bronze wildlife sculpture from https://www.gillparker.com/ and plates and paintings can be used to add interest to walls.
In the kitchen, the key is to go down a more traditional route – oak furniture, as well as a wooden or tiled floor. Using a darker colour on one wall such as a dark green or orange and the addition of an aga is a great way to get the look you want.« Back
