Modern country chic home trend

Christmas stag head

As we’re coming into spring it’s time to brighten up your home with this season’s latest trend – modern country chic. It’s a fresh update on the rustic rural look that kept your home cosy over winter, and at the Ideal Home Show Shop we have some great tips to help you get this season's on-trend home style without too much expense.


Floral touches

Introduce an up-to-date rustic feel to your home interiors by using plain wooden furniture and fresh colour shades. Light woods such as oak and painted wooden furniture are ideal for creating a modern country style look – but you can also work with any existing furniture you have in your home. Add colourful vases and jugs like these colourful metal jugs to wooden surfaces and fill with fresh springtime flowers like daffodils and tulips. Divide one large bunch of flowers into smaller vases, painted jars and mini bottles like these retro milk bottles and place them on tables and shelves around the room. For a trendy rustic touch, line baskets with brown paper first and then fill with flowers.


Fresh spring colour

It’s easy to update a rustic country look by adding in bright springtime colour into the scheme. Daffodil yellow, mint green and sky blue are perfect. Use oversized floral and countryside prints on wallpaper or soft furnishings like cushions – we love this mouse cushion. They are on-trend at the moment and will add a modern springtime feel to your home. Finally, dot rustic woven floral wreaths like this rustic feather wreath and other country-inspired finds around the room.
