Choosing country furniture for your home is not as easy as it looks: To start with, decide on the pieces you need. If it is for a living room, you can get a country style couch, or maybe chairs to go with your decor. Now your decor will be country looking as well; Choose country colours in your paint or wallpaper, in your decorations and window curtains. Choose country-themed paintings or prints for your walls. You can also consider a lovely rustic wooden bed – we got ours from, which looks fabulous in the converted loft in our Chesham home.

Lots of country furniture rooms include many antiques: It seems that antiques often go hand in hand with the country style.

The point with country furniture is that it is nice to have, but don’t go overboard with it. There can be too much of a good thing and often the country style ventures a little too close to the cluttered look.
