In the middle of the hustle and bustle of everyday city life, sometimes taking a break is not an option. The stress of commute, pollution, working everyday — everything around you can be a cause tension and strain. All of these negative feelings melt away once you see your home. It's your secret haven and a niche made especially for you after all.
One of the most remarkable ways to personalize your home is to redecorate it. Go for a relaxing décor by giving one or all your rooms a rustic countryside makeover. This provides the warmth and welcome of a country house, which can be your ideal getaway from the stress of city life.
Here are some suggestions to transform your home with a lovely countryside theme:
Search the web
If you’re feeling low with ideas, search the web for inspirational designs. Be it for a single room or for your whole house, it can’t hurt to look at pictures of homes with the same theme you want. You never know, you might even think of a better way to design you home. Remember, you’re simply looking for inspiration. No need to follow them by the detail if this means too much work.
Start going vintage
Start with the small stuff, like buying antique accessories, old lamps, and clocks, to achieve that rustic feel you’re going for. If you have the money to spend, you can buy interior rustic doors and windows to give you that homey old-fashioned look. Wrapping handles and knobs with twine can add a more old-fashioned touch to your doors and cabinets, as well.
If you can’t buy it, make it
There are many do-it-yourself projects in making rustic themed décors for your home. Start by buying old and reclaimed wood to get a good start for your projects. Headboards, picture frames, and wall art or even simple furniture can be fashioned using old reclaimed wood.
Redesigning your home doesn’t always mean spending a lot of money. With a little common sense and styles to choose from, you can transform your home into your private country home within the city.
