DESIGNING COUNTRY LINENS AND INTERIORS
Your choice of upholstery fabric can transform your room, especially when it comes to your soft furnishings. There are a whole range of countryside fabrics available, and choosing how to style them can be a difficult task.
There are a few tips and tricks when choosing a country theme for your interiors:
- Don’t be afraid to mix patterns, textures and colour tones
- Don’t scrimp on the cushions for that cosy, romantic feel
- Reupholster old furniture instead of buying new for that authentic vibe

COUNTRY PRINT CURTAINS

To really set the room off with that country vibe, use a neutral coloured fabric to create a roman blind, playing with different textures and layers.
If you’re lucky enough to have French doors within your home, creating floor length curtains in a country check makes a lovely feature. You can pick out accessories for the rest of the room that match the colours to create a cohesive scheme.

RUSTIC FABRIC FOR CHAIRS
Creating the perfect country style chair is easy to do with our range of country fabrics. Choose a checked print to upholster your old chair for that classic, country feel.
Match the colours in the checked pattern with fabrics of the same colour and create cushions, further extending your scheme.
Soft furnishings don’t tend to be a priority when designing the kitchen in a country style. However, we feel that they can really lift a scheme and add character.
For seats in the kitchen, use tartan or striped fabrics to upholster the seats around your dining table. This will create a welcoming place for your friends and family to congregate around.
