Country Luxury: Land
When we were searching for a home, we had a hard time finding the right one within our modest budget (sound familiar?). We would go to house after house, and nothing seemed right. Then one afternoon, we randomly stopped by a vacant house for sale and decided to take a look without our Realtor. The house was nice and we kind of liked it, but the true defining moment was when I walked around the back corner. I saw a lawn, gardens and woods — similiar to this photo — and immediately took a deep breath of contentment.
Create the feel of beams. If you don't have attractive beams to expose, try adding trusses for country style. If you rent, incorporate unfinished wood tones through furnishings and accessories.
Country Classic: White
White is a classic country base that gives your eyes and mind a rest. Keep your space from becoming too bland by injecting life through furnishings and art.
Create neighborly connections for your space. You might not be able to add a porch, but you can bring the outdoors in to create relationships with neighbors. Keep your windows wide open, and make it a priority to meet the lady in the flat next door or the family in the house down the street. Have them over for a glass of something cold and some good conversation.
