English country style emphasizes coziness and our relationship with nature. Elements are drawn from English country homes that often feature steep, thatched roofs, manicured grounds and effusive gardens. The decor can be casual or formal, and the focus is on function rather than flair. Furniture is traditionally styled and the rooms are full of color. Whether the home is a small cottage or sprawling estate, English county decorating exudes warmth, comfort and a love for family.
Outdoor spaces are critically important, and a home incorporating Tuscan style decorating must include a patio, loggia, or portico. Walls built of sandstone bricks frame today's home, where in ancient times they served as a defense. Water is a critical element in Tuscan style decorating, and many homes have a water fountain in the central courtyard surrounded by beautiful, wildly growing greenery. Marble statues grace outdoor spaces. Tall, graceful cypress tress sway in the breeze.
Decorative painting techniques can imitate the look of upholstered silk walls and are much more practical. Wooden furniture (case goods) is usually of a dark tone. Mahogany, walnut, and oak, as well as exotic hardwoods, are used for their fine grain and elegant look. Wooden furniture pieces are polished to a high shine. For an active home, use several layers of lacquer or polyurethane to create a durable finish.
When it comes to interior decorating black has gotten a bad rap. People tend to think decorating with black is dark and depressing. But this isn't the case.
