How to Decorate a Country-Style Home
When designing your home, the trend is leaning towards a modern country style. Start creating that country style in your home with this comprehensive range of Manchester Warehouse bedding and accessories. The modern country style home has evolved from the rustic look of farmhouse furniture, knitted tea cosies and traditional florals.
What does a modern country style home look like?
Modern country style décor is characterised by a cosy and casual decorating style that gives that feeling of simple country life. Its colour palette is bright colours and pastels that combine such design elements as second-hand accessories and vintage wares.
Country can range from artfully incorporating luxury suites with soft linen looks, to having a seasonal garden feel, with the sophisticated and relaxed style associated with The Hamptons.
The real key with a country style is to achieve the right balance for your property, location, home, and room.
You want to blend the old with the new, the contemporary with the traditional—and you want the traditional without being kitsch. You want the contemporary aspect to avoid looking overly sleek or modern.
The country style is really about creating a space you love to spend time in. And a space you’re happy to entertain guests regularly in.
The floral country look is great for making your home reflect the season you are in.
Country bedding with floral designs is all about bright colours and pastels with botanical themes that create a country style look in your bedroom. The right quilt cover set, cushions, pillow cases, coverlets, and bedspread can give your home that country-style feel you’re aiming at.
A range of brands and styles, to help your home fall into Autumn effortlessly.
Best of all, there are different floral looks to suit different seasons, enabling you to keep your bedroom looking fresh and on-point every season. For example, during spring, you want to decorate warm neutral shades of cream, light grey, beige, and ivory to complement spring colours.

The Hamptons Country look is a fusion of the Hamptons style with the charm of the Australian country design. Think bright and breezy interiors with cool, sophisticated and classic designs.
The colour scheme is usually off-whites and chic blues, but more specifically, you’re looking at warm beiges, soft whites, and cobalt and aqua blues that will work well together. Also: charcoal hues can work beautifully with vibrant coral colours.
To give it that country feel, you want to add patterns and give the room a cosy, homely feel with the right choice of décor and furnishings that go well with the Hamptons style.

If you’re considering the linen country look, this is not about super sharp, super slick grey linens. Think soft lines, think bright colours and pastels, think cosy and homely.
Country bedding with linen is all about affecting a style that is comfortable, simple, and casual. In terms of looks, it can be anything from masculine western to more romantic country cottage floral designs.
You achieve these looks with the right pillows, the right quilt set, pillowcases, coverlets, and cushions, doona covers, and more to help keep your country style bedroom looking relaxed and cosy.
The luxe country look takes the best of traditional country and blends it with contemporary luxe. The idea is to strike a good balance between refined desire and pastoral style. And this gives you that luxe country style that encapsulates a sense of comfort, character, and warmth.
In terms of styling a bedroom with this look, you want to have patterns. There’s something about patterns that almost makes the country look. You’ll want to blend the modern with the traditional—you know, add some floral patterns and have stripes, dots, geometrics, and any other patterns that suit the room.
The other aspect of what makes the luxe country look is that it’s not an over-the-top luxury. You’re not trying to make the room as high-end as such, but rather you’re giving the room an almost understated luxury that works so well with country.
