There’s no need to ditch everything country in order to create a modern living space. By combining rustic and contemporary elements you create a look that is both comfortable and sophisticated, updated and welcoming. This style retains all the comforts of country decor while allowing you freedom to express your modern side and embrace current decor trends. Stick with soft colors or neutrals, like shades of grey or taupe, on walls and furniture. Combine natural wood and metal finishes, and make use of the occasional pop of color or geometric pattern to keep your space interesting and updated.
