American Country

Large_front_american_country-m

 

Rooms decorated in the American Country style are generally relaxed and comfortable with simple adornments. This décor commonly references American heritage through the use of traditional materials and a country motif. Homes are inviting, cozy, and comfortable, often with wood floors and stone or brick fireplaces. Spaces look “lived in” with the use of antique and functional decorative elements such as pottery, carved wood, hand-formed metal, and baskets. Furniture is typically made of leather or soft fabrics in muted colors with floral or gingham patterns.
