The Country Style type of architecture is often considered unobtrusive and natural in character that proves to be quite valuable at times of progress. Apart from the main benefits it offers, country style encompasses precious beauty, reflected in the style’s diversity and a sense of naturalness. This style is unique for every country; the most famous are English, French and American types, demonstrating the rural charm of each of them through simple things, known since childhood.

Decor and furniture
Country style means pristine materials, embodied in the interior items, its covering and decor. While nowadays it is almost impossible to live without modern consumer electronics, yet if you would like to embody the features of this style within your house, it is better not to display modern appliances, but to conceal (build in, hide) them.

Natural materials
It is unusual for country style to use plastic, linoleum as well as glazed surfaces, as it favours only natural, of true nature materials, used for home decoration.

The ceiling in country-styled bedroom should be just whitened; however sewing it round would be the best option. Walls should be smoothed out, ceiled or covered with wallpaper with floral pattern.
