If you’re looking to give your bedroom a warm, cosy makeover, the modern country chic theme is definitely one to consider. Combining traditional elements with a contemporary look, modern country chic style rooms boast an elegant, luxurious and welcoming feel. They have been popular for years and are fairly easy to recreate in your own bedroom.
If you’re looking for inspiration on what to add to your modern country chic bedroom design, below you’ll discover some great tips and ideas for nailing the key design elements.
Getting the colour just right
One of the main features of a country chic bedroom, is its colour scheme. You’ll find the majority of shabby chic themed rooms feature a mainly white colour scheme. Although times have changed, modern country chic bedrooms still largely maintain this white or soft colour palette, featuring colours such as grey, blush pink, cream and white. So, if you’re more into your bright, bold colours, this style of design probably isn’t the right choice for you.
Upgrade your furniture
Another important element of country chic design is the furniture. You’ll want to ensure you’re sticking to wooden furniture, ideally again with a pale wood or white colour scheme to brighten up the room. Companies such as Cotswold Co, offer exceptionally stylish wooden country chic furniture you can use to complete the look.
If you want to enhance the theme further, you could also swap the handles on white furniture. For example, change them to chrome or gold handles for a luxurious, beautiful look.
Add a modern country chic romantic touch
Romance is another key feature of a modern country chic bedroom. For the ultimate extravagance, you may want to invest in a four-poster bed, but you can create an equally good look with a white wooden bed or by using a feature headboard. Traditionally floral accessories feature in the country chic style, but you don’t need to go overboard on florals. A touch of floral wallpaper, bedding or soft furnishings are all it takes, or you can simply add fresh flowers or plants. It’s best to avoid bright floral designs. Instead think subtle and elegant, more than modern and bright.
To maximise the look, you could use distressed style furniture, along with beautiful enamel style lighting.
Don’t forget the smaller details
Often, it’s the smallest details which make the biggest difference to the appearance of a room.
Cushions on the bed are a popular part of the country chic design, as are cosy fabrics. You could also add pastel coloured fresh flowers into the room to enhance both its romantic and stylish appeal. A retro style mirror can also work well and if you place it correctly, it could reflect lots of natural light into the room to create a more spacious, natural feel.
It’s not hard to see why the country chic bedroom design has remained popular for years. It’s simpler than you might think to recreate the look in a modern style. No matter what your budget, why not start putting together the modern country chic bedroom of your dreams?
