A contemporary reinterpretation of country style, showing how to create relaxed, individual interiors that are suited to the way we live today.
For some years the notion of country living has been pushed aside in favour of a more urban, minimalist approach to decorating. Now NEW COUNTRY captures the spirit of change, reinterpreting and updating the romance and individuality of country style in a glorious fusion of country and modern, electric and traditional. An introduction, New Restraint, examines the inspiration on which to draw for capturing the new approach. Next, five chapters reflect the way life is centred today - Place at Table (eating, good living and entertaining), New Colour (a loose approach to easy living and muted tones and pastels), Sleep and Dreams (relaxation, bathing and beds). Seasonal Spirit (harnessing natural elements for the home) and Through the Picket Fence (garden rooms and outdoor living). Throughout these chapters practical, step-by-step projects are included in the form of Good Ideas. Nich Ronald and David Roberts have moved out of the city to discover for themselves the way of life that is New Country. Combining specially photographed interiors, practical solutions and original ideas, this third book from Grand Illusions takes the ethos back to its natural starting point - a place which cannot fail to inspire in everyone a quest for comfort, romance and relaxed living.
