8 Signs You Love The Country Style

Perhaps your dream home is a farmhouse with a white picket fence!

Shingled roofs, weathered bricks, pine-box furniture, and enameled tin lamps—these typical country-interior elements have captivated homeowners of all ages, from true-blue titas to neo-nesting millenials.

Now if you’ve been dreaming of your own Home on the Range, but are not sure if you are willing to take the decorating plunge, tick off this fun checklist to see if this is your style. We made this all for the love of Country! 

Your dining chair is a Windsor chair.

It's a country classic, after all. 

Green is your color—apple, sage, or celery.
Sofa type: white, and the shabbier, the better.
Your kitchen must have a cute breakfast nook.
Plus a farmhouse sink, too!

This one's from Kohler, available at Sanitec.

You want a clawfoot tub (now how to make it fit in your bathroom).
For decor, you collect buttons, owls, or bunnies...or all three.
"Something's Gotta Give" is on your playlist and you hit pause during kitchen scenes.

You have to admit, that was an amazing country house!

If you answer “yes” to all of the above, then you are definitely a country girl or boy! You love muted colors and whites, and your accessories are distressed, but charming. Cotton chintz and khaki twill are your favorite fabrics. If you want an updated version of country, you can substitute subtle greens and blues for bright yellows or even neon colors as accents, or mix the standard Windsor chair with a simple modern table.
