From trees and flowers to the sky and the sun, the colour palettes that work well in a country home are detailed in this book, and how natural materials such as stone, wood and earth compliment these tones and shades.
I love the mixed palette here of blues, reds, pinks, greens and a splash of yellow...
The final section of the book - Essential Elements looks at furnishings and accessories in the country home. One area Judith looks at is painted furniture and different colour pallettes which can work. One of my favourite pages from the book was this slightly opulent kitchen setting, with it elaborate chandelier, and ornate pillar in the corner. The girly splashes of pink and green really make it an eye catching scene!
So if, like me!, you are planning to decorate anytime soon this book is worth a peek if you are keen to create a bit of a country style feel. Even if you don't live in a 300 year old farmhouse, there are lots of tips of how to create this style in whatever your interior.
