A Chic Country Aesthetic? Yes, It’s Possible – Just Pick Modern Accents

Think country has to equal cutesy? Think again. Whether your abode is an actual farmhouse or you’re simply drawn to the aesthetic, here are three ways to put a contemporary spin on a country-style bedroom.


  1. Hang traditional floral prints in an unexpected blue or black palette.
  2. Give upholstered and tufted furniture an of-the-moment look in neutral or grey hues.
  3. Pick a side table with a classic and demure shape – and a smooth black finish that brings the wow factor.


Find these pieces at our Furniture & More for a Modern-Country Bedroom Boutique on Monday, March 17, at 11AM ET.

Chair Styles, Defined

Expand your interior-design know-how with these furnishing facts. 


Interest officially piqued? Living-room styles don’t stop here. If you’re aiming for an 18th-century formal sitting space, add a camelback couch, with its upright, exposed legs and slight rise in the frame. All that’s missing is your silver tea set. Or, go laid-back with a Lawson or English rolled-arm sofa – the soft cushions and (often) skirted legs are all about keeping it casual.

Our Bernhardt Boutique opens Monday, August 5, at 3PM ET.
