English Country

A rather feminine theme, floral patterns and accents are recurring elements for the English Country style. Light and soothing colours lend a balanced effect to the comforting and relaxing atmosphere of the theme. The combination of flower motif wallpaper and the right curtains can easily help you achieve this look. For most other themes, less is more. But in this case, furniture occupies most parts of the room to create a cosy ambience.

Fabric

Plain or muted colours are best suited for this theme. Keeping to the same colour or not more than two colours is the key to successful execution. Choosing an accent colour for your furniture and other accessories will easily create a focal point for your home.

Furniture and Decor

Walls are usually adorned with framed paintings and pictures. Vintage mirrors and floral wreaths can be used sparingly for better effect. Candle holders, vases of fresh flowers, carpets & rugs, dark-stained chests and wooden side tables or shelves are a part of this cosy look.

Wall

Wallpapers in light colours with floral motifs or stencil effect are preferred.

Curtain

Frame windows with draped fabric, day and night curtains, and tie them back for a layered look. Blinds are a no-no for this style.
