Specially-cast iron used in iron furnishings, window and door grates, etc. is another key ingredient for giving a rustic appearance. Arches, fireplaces, planter boxes and other interior features are key ingredients in imparting that rustic look. Handcrafted materials can be perfect exhibitions of a rustic nature, particularly high quality rustic collections created by artisans. Handcrafted pieces each have their own unique character, which is the very essence of rustic décor.
For starters, replace the fabrics. The motifs of yesterday - big floral prints, barnyard animals, farming tools and the like - mark Country decor as kitschy. Instead, choose stripes and checks for upholstery, while keeping one or two of the traditional prints for throw pillows, small wall hangings or bench cushions. Painted furniture and antique quilts still say "country," so these furnishings can be retained if they're in good condition. Even though some Country styles call for painted furniture to appear distressed, too many nicks and dents simply make it look old and worn. Whether to repaint entirely or touch up the marks can be the decorator's choice, but don't give up the inherent charm of such pieces. Painted kitchen chairs or a painted chest with a countryside scene are perfect for this decorating style. Add two or three vintage quilts on a rack or display a collection of folded quilts in a glass-front cabinet.
Update the wreaths made of pinecones and dried flowers. Use some creativity to put dried flowers tied with a slim ribbon in a wicker basket, or put them in a more contemporary vase. Give the display a more up-to-date look by adding small glass bowls filed with stones in different colors. Furthermore, rethink how other accessories are displayed. Contemporary looks emphasize the principle that "less is more," so reduce the size and number of accessories to create more intriguing vignettes. The traditional elements may be retained, but cut them down to enhance their interest. Thus, instead of several wood bowls holding pine cones or evergreens scattered about a room, create one bowl with two or three pinecones surrounding by sprigs of fragrant rosemary. Instead of a week's worth of wood for the fireplace, only place a few logs in a black or bronze metal holder. Show off only the best copper pots and pans in the kitchen.
Même si les régions diffèrent en termes de style, de couleur et de texture, elles ont toutes les mêmes valeurs traditionnelles qui les unissent. Ce n'est pas seulement un style mais un style de vie. Voici quelques exemples: L'amour et le respect des traditions et de l'artisanat respectueux du temps, l'amour authentique de la campagne et de ses matériaux naturels, réinventer au lieu de jeter, la simplicité sophistiquée, l'harmonie, l'échelle et l'équilibre. En conclusion, aujourd'hui le nom French Country est un terme décoratif «attrape-tout» pour toutes les régions rurales de la France, incorporant à la fois la ferme rustique et le style manoir plus raffiné - y compris le terme français français ou pays français.
