This timeless look draws from a variety of influences, and while there is no one-style-fits-all formula, inspiration generally comes from the natural and immediate environment. This is why we often see rustic timbers and highly textural materials within this interior scheme. Country style can be interpreted in many ways, including 'homestead style', which melds old-world charm with a sense of grandeur; the quaint, handmade appeal of 'cottage style'; and 'modern country', a sensitive pairing of antique and contemporary elements.

The key to styling a country theme is the considered layering of objects, homewares and furniture, incorporating vintage finds with rustic pieces in a variety of finishes such as glass, timber and metals. In addition, fabric and soft furnishings play an important role in balancing warmth and texture with cool, smooth surfaces.

No matter which interpretation you prefer, one of the most beautifully suited materials in any country style scheme is linen. With a looser weave than most other fabrics, this natural fibre can be applied everywhere from bedding to furniture. For an effortlessly elegant bedscape, take a tonal approach to layering and focus on textural variety such as a throw or blanket in a highly tactile weave, or include a melange weave for added depth and interest.
