Country Chic Interior Design: pieces of furniture and housewares between memory and style

Country Chic Interior Design: pieces of furniture and housewares between memory and style

Warmth and formal cleanness: if we had to find the first bricks through which to build a house in modern country style, these would be the elements to start with.

But what does country chic mean? The combination of these two words defines an eclectic, original interior design style: a mix & match obtained by the union of vintage and modern elements which becomes contemporary thanks to the use of bright colours, of pieces of furniture of wood and metal, and of pieces of modern art in every room in the house.

A style with a defined character, with unique shapes interpreted also in a contemporary way. The match of country and chic especially occurs in the materials, inspired by nature but with a modern, refined twist.

The result is a contemporary interior design, emphasized by the possibility to play with colours and patterns whose formal combination makes the atmosphere appeal to country and vintage tastes, yet with modern elements which meet current trends, too.

The success of country chic interior design is this: the versatility of a style which can combine warm, cosy atmosphere and formal cleanness and minimalism

Personality and cosiness are the key words: the “domestic” influence, connected to earth, can create an old-fashioned, yet always refined, modern atmosphere. Misty, romantic tones tend to colours connected to nature: the yellow of the sun, the brown of the earth and lots of pastel tones.

But which are the most important elements to use if you want to decorate your house in country chic style? What to put in an interior where memory and style will meet? Find it out in our guide!

How to decorate in country chic style

1) The colours for a house in country style

The chromatic range of country chic interior design starts with white and moves to ivory, beige, cream, light grey and grey, to pastel colours such as pink, light blue or pearl grey.


Strong, bright colours are to be avoided. 

2) Materials for modern country interior design

The first material to choose to comply with the principles of country chic style is wood, but in this case it is raw, unrefined, to enhance its natural veining.

You therefore have to select pieces of furniture with basic lines: the solutions which use rustic shapes and materials, like wood boards and unpainted metals, are very good.



In these furnishing proposals, wood is clearly the material of country chic trend. Used in various types of furniture: writing desk, short cabinet with drawers and shelves, 2-door cupboard and console, recycled wood is the perfect protagonist of a living room decorated in country style, with natural and contemporary atmosphere.

Another material you can use is metal,  which can become co-protagonist in various furnishing objects, from bigger ones like tables and coffee tables, to more “cosmetic” products like ornaments and housewares.

3) Modern country interior design: the fabrics

As for fabrics, you can use wool, cotton and linen, to be chromatically matched with the predominant colours in the rooms.

Nuances are neutral, light such as ivory and cream, or slightly darker such as grey. These fabrics are then embellished by drawings and embroideries, often stylised and sometimes enriched by refined and elegant workings. 


4) Accessories to furnish an interior in country chic style

Pieces of furniture and accessories which embellish the rooms by giving them a “worn out”, yet elegant and glamourous look, are a must in a country chic house

So go ahead with:


  • Ceramic objects which evoke the past and permit to decorate the room with elegant solutions, perfect to be shown.

  • Vintage mirrors to provide a classic touch through whitened wood, simple and refined design, decorated profiles.
  • Lamps (which play with the mix of materials, like this white, worked ceramic lamp with shade of light grey fabric. Elegant furnishing objects, to create magic atmospheres in a Modern Country interior.

  • Standing accessories like worked photo frames or hanging accessories like clocks.  When they are chosen and combined with taste, these elements can become the key which opens every room in the house to a horizon of elegance.
