If the countryside is your passion, then it is comforting to reflect this style in your home. From tweed throws to horse sculptures every rural home should pay homage to the countryside in its style. When it comes to decorating, then why not adorn your walls or make one feature wall with some countryside themed wallpaper? I wrote last year about my top five favourite countryside wallpapers which inspired me to decorate my own living room with one I had found researching the article!
So if you are thinking of giving your home a facelift, here are my 2018 picks to give some countryside style to your home:-
1 Ravdunge by Hanna Werning
Pouncing foxes, pheasants, and fish combined with an array of floral motif and leaves create this stunning wallpaper. These rich colours would look great in a living room or bedroom picking out accessories to match. Shown in shades of brown, green and blue on a dark brown background, there are also other colour ways available of these lovely wall covering.
2 Vintage Squirrel and Dove by Sanderson
Squirrel & Dove wallpaper is faithfully reproduced from the original designed by C.F.A. Voysey, the famous English architect and textile designer and associate of William Morris. Created in the Arts & Crafts style of the time, the pattern was first produced by Sanderson as a wallpaper in the 1890s and is now available as both a fabric and wallpaper. This paper would look stunning as a feature wall picking out emeralds and terracotta reds in your soft furnishings and cushions.
3 Gable by Farrow and Ball
This charming rural farm scene with pretty curved hills and farmyard animals would suit all ages from young to the old. This looks very effective against white paintwork with pretty much any colour that can be used in accessorising the room. We love this blue colourway, with deep grey from Farrow and Ball.
4 Tally Ho by Linwood
This beautiful printed wallpaper features classic scenes from the vintage days of hunting, including hounds and horses with a fabric effect background. If the love for all things equestrian runs through your veins, this is a great wall cover to have in your home. Add some painted wood panelling gives a very traditional country style look to your interior. Shown here in various colours including aqua, green and red, simple accessories would compliment this wall covering in your room.
5 Pheasant Pinecone by Stil Haven
I love pheasants when it comes to interior styling and this paper would look fantastic in any room. This luxurious non woven pheasant and pinecone wallpaper stem from exclusively hand painted artwork and will make a stunning backdrop. Perfectly fitting for the country home or a modern interior, this stylish designer wallpaper comes in a range of popular country themed colours.
6 Fox and Hen by Barnby Gates
Two sworn enemies in one quirky print, the fox and the hen come together on a chicken wire-inspired trellis. The deep rich red would give actually warmth and class to any room in a country home. Add some equestrian themed accessories will make it a very stylish countryside look to any interior.
7 Woods by Cole & Son
This woodland style wall covering from Cole & Son is a firm favourite which I have used in my own home. Michael Clark designed this now iconic wallpaper pattern, in 1959. Originally designed as a screen print, the woods wallpaper pattern features bold sketches of trees making a unique forest repeat. It looks striking and can be accessorised with any bold colour to a countryside or modern interior.
We hope that this small selection of countryside themed wall coverings have given you some inspiration if you are thinking of restyling the rooms in your home. We would highly recommend ordering free samples of the papers first, as colours can differ when looking online or under fluorescent light of large home retails stores. These papers perhaps are not the cheapest and sometimes to paper every wall in the room will be costly and probably too much on the eye. By having a feature wall, not only will save the pennies but will be more striking.
So why not inject some countryside style giving your home a warm, welcoming and comfortable style that anybody would love to live in! I did just that last year…
