Country Chic: Country Style for Modern Living
Tapping into the current urban decorating trend that is moving away from minimalism toward a more livable look, Country Chic shows readers how to work with light, space, color and pattern in all kinds of houses and apartments to create a modern country style. Packed with lush color photos of real-life interiors, Country Chic shows and explains in detail how city-dwellers have created stylish yet comfortable homes. Specific country styles are addressed -- such as Shaker and New England -- as well as classic country decorating themes featuring florals, mix-and-match patterns, and colors. Then, a modern interpretation of country tradition offers a full range of styles from a more natural look to Bohemian and eclectic -- and sometimes very bold -- interior designs. The authors also advise how to choose a color scheme -- the single most challenging aspect of decorating.
