Creating a theme room is easy with country paint colors. This design aesthetic may remind you of your grandma’s home but changing up the color palette updates it for the modern day. You might just want a country room so you can incorporate existing furniture pieces and your favorite accessories into the room.
Country paint colors can utilize neutrals. This will keep your home from looking like a restaurant or even a barn. You might want a bright and airy look while still keeping within a country theme. This also ensures that you can work with existing appliances, fixtures and countertops to save money on a remodel. You might want to decorate with neutral colors just so that when you go to sell your house it will appeal to a wide range of people.
If you are going for an all white country room you’ll need to add architectural elements that have texture in them. This might include spray painting a bunch of ornate frames. This makes for cheap decorative accessories because you can just pick up mismatched frames at thrift stores. Add white shutters to the window. You can spruce up a plain room just by putting bead board on the walls or cabinets and that adds a country feel. Then you can give mass appeal to the room with more intricate moldings; you can even add them to the ceiling.
For a country room you can go for a vintage effect or use rustic wall decor. You might want to layer browns and reds on top of metal hardware or light fixtures in the room so that they look rustic. You can also create a patchwork quilt effect on your wall with the simple use of color. You may want to just use this on one wall or half a wall so it doesn’t overwhelm your room. Paint large blocks of color. If you’re afraid of it looking too busy then just go with a tone on tone effect by using colors from the same paint chip. The closer the colors are on the chip, the more subtle your room will be.
You may have to work with white walls if you are renting. You can still have a country style; just bring in touches of home. This may mean adding lace window treatments over modern blinds or bringing in a quilt that has a touch of home to it. If you can’t add color to the walls then go with rustic western furniture. You can paint this furniture in a deep barn red or country blue. You can sand down the edges so even contemporary pieces have a bit of flair and a sense of history to them. This way you’ll have removable color in your room and you’ll be able to make a matching furniture set out of odds and ends in order to save money.
Country paint schemes and colors give a rustic feel to a room. Color has a big impact in the room and is one of the cheapest ways to decorate. You can make a plain apartment feel like home by adding in the right colors.
