Country is a wide-ranging style that depends on geographical location but is generally exemplified by primitive furniture, muted colors, milk-paint finishes and vintage fabrics. Here's how the style breaks down:

Colors: Soft, muted colors showing the wear of time are indicative of a rustic country style. A more contemporary country look may feature a brighter color palette with accents of red, black or pure white to set off the design.

Furniture: Flea markets and Grandma's attic are the perfect spots for finding treasures for a country-themed home. Look for pieces with straight lines, painted finishes and very little ornamentation.

Accessories: A handmade, homespun quality permeates country-style accessories, which include baskets, carved wooden bowls, pottery, pewter and hand-forged metal accents.

Fabrics: Floral, checked and striped patterns printed on calico fabric add visual interest and color to an understated country room.
