Is Country Style Back?

Is Country Style Back?

Over at Canadian House & Home, Michael Penney states that the affirmative answer to whether or not country style is back is a resounding DUH! He says that the look is everywhere in the marketplace and cites hot designer Darryl Carter's work as a perfect example of how it's being done these days. How about at your home?

One of Michael's examples of country style that we really like - the Quincy Bed by Ethan Allen.

We think that this time around it's a bit more formal, with less chalky color and a lot more black & white with plenty of European influences. The photo shown at the top of the post is from an Elle Decor article featuring the home of NYC designers Richard Lambertson and John Truex. It is entitled "Country Chic" and it sums up the look pretty well - it may be country but it still has plenty of drama!

Would you go "country"? Do you like things that are more than a little rustic? Have homey, vintage and decidedly UN-urban items made it into your home lately? If so, you may be right "on trend".

Perhaps it has been your style all along? Or maybe it's a look that really doesn't do it for you at all ...sound off in the comments below to let us know.

Check out Michael Penney's post at Canadian House & Home and the Country Chic article at Elle Decor for more examples.
