Whether you live in the country, or simply wish to create a homey environment to feel as though you do, decorating in country style is the perfect way to create a casual but elegant atmosphere. Fashioning the inviting, unpretentious charm of the country, with added twists that make your home uniquely your own, is easy with the right inspiration.
Although country décor by its very nature is eclectic, one may want to escape the overbearing country style of our grandmothers, and instead choose to accentuate a room with homespun touches like animal accents, subtle, homey floral and rustic colors to help bring traditional country style to the modern country home.
Country décor has its roots in American folk art, which in comparison to “high art” or “fine art”, tends to serve utilitarian and decorative purposes, as opposed to being purely aesthetic. Folk Art is characterized by a naive style, in which traditional rules of proportion and perspective are not necessarily utilized.
Typically produced by an indigenous culture or by peasants or other laboring tradespeople, folk art is specific to its particular culture and varies geographically, thus makes it difficult to describe as a whole. What is universal to folk art (and the country décor that it inspires) however, is that it is created by men and women outside the confines of the art academy and thus resonates with the aspirations of everyday life of “common folk”.
