Think simple and rustic

Painted planked wood walls and ceilings are a simple way to saturate your space with country flair. The frame surrounding a painting can be a work of art in itself. Here, an extra-wide gold frame features ornate vintage detailing. Inside, the dark tones of the portrait tie in to the navy leather on the chairs, whose unfinished look pairs rustic style with elegant lines.

Open the room with a vintage mirror

Leaning against the wall, an oversize standing mirror with carved detailing can open the room and provide interest. Choose a piece with a distressed finish to add vintage charm.

Opt for a daybed

Placing a daybed under a sunny window framing radiant blooms creates the perfect cozy corner for when it’s too cold to enjoy the porch. Blue throw pillows add a touch of contemporary style to the country charm of striped fabric, simple wrought iron frame, and surrounding rustic furniture.
