Selecting Country Living Room Furniture
Making a country living room can be accomplished through the use of country style decor and comfortable furniture. Choosing the best country living room furniture means picking rustic pieces that coordinate well with the colors and size of your space. Furniture for a country living room should look informal, yet stylish. Pine and painted tables, chairs and cabinets can work especially well in country-themed living spaces. Choose a color palette of either bright, vivid primary colors such as red, blue, yellow and green or darker, richer shades of these. Farm-themed living spaces often incorporate bright colors and include whimsical animal motifs such as roosters or other farm animals. Unfinished pine country living room furniture or antique white peeled paint cabinets, dining sets and tables can often work well with a farm theme. Deeper shades of red, blue, yellow and green and motifs such as flowers and grapes can be used in a French country living space; gold and purple fabrics may work especially well with white and light toned wood furniture.
Another way to create a country living room, but with a softer, romantic look is to use pastel hues such as pink rather than red. For example, pink gingham curtains and light pine wood furniture can help you create a feminine type of country space. An armoire, or large closed-door cabinet, is a great country living room furniture idea, especially in a casual, rustic wood such as knotty pine. Its tall height and natural dark knots can make a strong, yet informal presence in a country-themed living room. Armoires are also a great way to keep a television enclosed since too “high tech” a look such as a flat screen, wall-hung TV may ruin the simplistic, old-fashioned charm of your country-style living space.
