Cure space deficiencies with color

KNOW-HOW

Color is one of the most powerful tools in interior design and home decoration. A space on the other hand, may have several deficiencies that you can work out by using color in a clever way. See some common space issues and how they can be cured with color.

Match a vintage ceiling light with country style

KNOW-HOW

Country style is not a one answer question, since it accepts several interpretations and approaches. Typically, the style is associated with rustic, slightly cluttered, warm and comfort spaces, full of natural surfaces and vintage textiles and accessories.

Furnishing is typically rustic. This means that any antique piece you inherited from your grandparents can fit perfectly to the overall scheme. Preferable materials for furniture is wood, such as pine, maple, teak and oak. Wood surfaces can be painted or simple varnished to allow the grain to remain visible. Apart from wood, country style fits perfectly with wrought iron. If metal is used, it is better to have a rustic, matte finish.

Country style is mostly inspired by traditional and vintage styles. However, with time, the style is becoming more encompassing. So today, you may feel free to blend country style, with several romantic, ethnic or even contemporary elements.

  • Blend country style furniture with this multi-lamp vintage ceiling light. Due to the proportions and the design of the light fixture, the piece will work as the main focal point of the space. Brand: SaveLights.
