A country abode

29.03.2017

Injecting a little country feel into your home (even if you don’t live in the country) is easy, with just a few accessories. In this post, I’ve picked out some of my favourite accessories to help to transform your home into a country abode.

 

 

Cushions:

I have to admit, I have a huge obsession with cushions! I have 8 display cushions on my bed at the moment!!! And cushions are an easy way to change a room's feel or décor and freshen it's look. It's also a super way to add a country feel easily.

 

These 'Lord' and 'Lady' of the Manor cushions would suit most colour schemes and have a tongue in cheek feel.

One of my favourite recent finds is Country Abode, available to order via Etsy. They do a variety of gorgeous tweed and animal print cushions as well as these amazing lampshades below. Beautifully hand made by the very talented Rachel Morris and she has lot's of styles to choose from.

To be fair, I could have put absolutely everything from her Etsy shop on here, I just love them all!

If you don't want to go full on Hares and stags, these 'stars and stripes' again, from Country Abode, make a fab country style addition to a bed or sofa, with a contemporary modern feel.

 

Lamps and shades

A lamp on a side table, or a sideboard can inject colour and light into a room, again Country Abode makes these in many different styles and designs. Lampshades are a subtle way of adding a little tweed or a pheasant or two!

 

 Large Woodland lampshade £40.00

I of course had to show you this beautiful dachshund option available! Be rude not to!

Quintessentially British

It wouldn't be a blog about a country abode without a little bit of Emma Bridgewater. I've made a promise to myself that I'm going to start an EB collection this year, I'm currently on the hunt for the sausage dog mug they released a little while back! These are a few of my favourites:

Placemats

These stunning placemats are available from Wingfield Digby and are made from real feathers set in glass. They would make a fabulous centre piece with a candle, perhaps a bottle of champagne (or two) but also gorgeous as placemats! They have a large range of other feathered items available such as beautiful frames and scented candles of which I'm lucky to have a couple at home- they smell devine!

Feather Placemats  £75.00-£95.00
