It’s a tricky job mixing old with new,  but when it works, wow, does it look good.  And a contemporary twist on country living is a key trend at the moment.  We think the trick is, to start with the basics, weathered woods, classic designs and cosy aesthetic, and mix it up with new colours, fabrics and prints.

Here are some easy ways to make the most of your contemporary country interior!

contemporary burner

Wood burning stoves are a staple of the country home, but why not choose a more modern looking stove to give your room a fresher look?

Acid brights add a pop of colour to your interior!  Keep the rest of the room neutral to really show off that statement piece.


A contemporary wallpaper in a more traditional  setting bring its bang up to date!  This flamingo wallpaper in cool grey and pink sits perfectly with the vintage styling of the bathroom furniture.


Using white makes a traditional room more contemporary, especially when partnered with black for a cool monochrome look.  Paint the walls, ceiling, even the floorboards to make a clean canvas!


Take a classic piece of furniture and recover it in a more contemporary colour or fabric to add a quirky touch to your space.


Or add a bright colour to a design classic like these ercol chairs – mixing up the idea on a classic country kitchen!
