Designer Margaret Naeve Parker adores interiors that look old and aged pieces of furniture. Her works are often difficult to tell from the real centuries-old mansions and historic houses. But still, this is not a classic or country style in a pure form – the designer tries to add sophistication to the spaces with a help of modern furniture and bright art objects. What a great sense of style!
When the current owner first came to this Spanish farm of the 19th century, there were only ruins. The house and the interior had to be rebuilt by bit. The renovation took a long time, but all the efforts were worth it – now it’s a stunning rustic house with light and airy interiors. It seems that in this farm time has stopped as the home is an excellent combination of antiquity and comfort.
Interior designers do not always choose for themselves trendy modern interiors with a lot of cool original solutions, as someone can seem. They sometimes also want to experience just simply simple life joys, like to have a cozy countryside home that is decorated with a love and without too much of glamour things. This Finnish cottage of the local designers’ family is just such: soulful, traditional and very cozy. Simply beautiful!
‘Refined rustic’ is a description for a special direction in American interior design. Spaces in this style are characterized by simple and rough natural materials in finishing, such as wood and stone, a light color range of neutral shades, as well as sophisticated furniture and decor. Designer Kelly Nutt is one of the most prominent representatives of this kind of homes, and today we have selected for you the best works from her portfolio. Hope that you will like it!
No, this is not the classic Ukrainian or Russian “hut”, as it might seem when you see the thatched roof. The fact is that this wonderful country home is located in Spanish Andalusia region, where similar roofs were used in the past. The owner really wanted his house to have the features of traditional local architecture, so getting here seems like you are being transferred in time. What a lovely summer house!
The owners of this beautiful Swedish home are not ashamed to admit that they live in the countryside. From the outside, this is a classic Scandinavian cottage of red color, it seems that it was built more than a century ago. But the interiors here are especially cozy: the traditional rustic design, with its charm and simplicity, but the decoration is quite modern, with more refined touches and pieces of furniture. And these lovely cows! :)
The history of this house on the Costa Brava, Spain, began in the 50s of last century, but for the last 40 years, it has not seen any repair. The owner Eugene, interior designer, renovate the interior spaces with great attention to detail and lovingly revived the territory. Now nothing tells about the former despair. In the bright rooms of the house, retro details and rustic style are beautifully combined together, there are a lot of wood and natural fabrics. We just love the wonderful staircase with white and blue tiles and a spacious kitchen. Not to mention the well-groomed backyard. This house has really got a new bright life!
This country house with a light atmosphere and a touch of romance is located in Spanish Andalusia, but it clearly has French roots – after all, the Provence style rules here. Beams, small fireplaces, openwork furniture and a lot of nice little things are something for what Provence is loved all around the world, as this style turns any space into a synonym for comfort. The bathroom and the dressing room adjacent to it make one of the most powerful impressions – everything is so elegant, gentle and thoughtful. Most likely, such a home will make a strong impression on women, but it will certainly conquer men as well with its comfort. Stunning home!
Rustic home requires a proper Christmas decor. This house on Lake Tahoe has changed to holidays, but it has not lost its style and concept. There are minimum toys and decorations on the Christmas tree, all in one color scheme, and the abundance of wood in the interior is supported by numerous greenery and coniferous plants. Festive, but not overloaded with decor. Great!
Holidays outside big cities are always cozy and heartful. But if it’s a village in the English countryside, then you can add a wonderful charm of traditional English interiors. This cottage in Oxfordshire was converted from the old barn into living space several years ago and now the new owners every Christmas create here a real fairy. Wonderful!
