How To Bring The Countryside Indoors
Whether you live in a buzzing city apartment, a farmhouse in a village or a mid-terrace by the seaside, bringing the countryside indoors can help you to feel more relaxed and at peace. There is nothing more beautiful than countryside landscapes and wildlife, and by incorporating these accents and colour palettes into your home interior, you can create a cosy and homely atmosphere that makes you want to unwind.
But the big question is, how? As a true lover and resident of the countryside, Trudie Oliver decided to help more people bring the outdoors in by finding the highest quality decor pieces that will last for years to come and add the perfect final touch to any home.
Here are our top tips on how to bring a country feel into your home with the help of our gorgeous collection of country home accessories. From blankets to cushion covers, we are bound to have something perfect for your specific homey style.
Roger Rabbit Blanket
Looking for an authentic countryside, farmhouse feel? Look no further than our Roger Rabbit Blanket. This cosy, beautifully detailed and incredibly well-woven blanket is perfect for keeping you warm during the chilly nights and draping over the arm of your sofa when not in use.
Its hare design is what makes this blanket especially country-like. Did you know that a hare has longer ears than a pet rabbit? We didn’t either! This blanket is made out of 100% pure cotton for that extra soft, snuggly feeling that we all need when we enjoy a night on the sofa with a book.
The muted green, cream and beigey grey accents are what set this blanket apart. We would recommend pairing this blanket with other light green accents in your bedroom or living room; with this added pop of colour, you can incorporate both countryside wildlife and a sunny day in the fields into your home. Check out the blanket’s care instructions over on our website.
‘A Bad Hair Day’ Cushion Cover
To add even more brightness, humour and a country-style feeling into your home, behold our beautiful highland cow cushion cover. Adam Barsby’s design of this gorgeous animal complements the cushions super soft vegan faux suede perfectly.
When getting cosy on your sofa, cushions are a must. And by filling this beauty up with a plump, feather-filled pillow, it’ll keep you comfortable and trendy. Or, as a lovely pop of colour in your bedroom, why not incorporate my ‘A Bad Hair Day’ Cushion Cover into your pillow spread on your bed or armchair?
With its beautiful velvet back and exquisite attention to detail, this cow printed cushion screams the countryside in a quirky and different way. For only £25.95, it can completely transform the aesthetic of a room on a budget.
‘Daffy’ Duck Blanket
The bedroom and living room isn’t the only place where we can create a countryside theme. Why not incorporate the wildlife and countryside aesthetic into your children’s room too? This Daffy Duck Blanket is exactly the way to do it.
With its 80% wool and 10% cotton compounds, this blanket can keep your little one extra snuggly and warm. It’s high-quality weft, and beautiful decoration of ducks makes this countryside-inspired throw the cutest addition to any kids room.
What farmhouse in the countryside doesn’t have ducks in their garden anyway? Available in both lime green and this gorgeous sky blue, this blanket would look especially lovely folded at the bottom of a bed or hung across a sofa in the conservatory.
