Did you see my botanical interiors post earlier this week? It was good. You should. (If you like plants).
I really enjoyed doing it. Pinterest is really fun isn’t it? Well dur, I know it is, that’s the point of it, but I do tend to come to these things a bit late. Bee and I call it ‘having a beach holiday moment’ because of the time I said ‘Gosh, do you know what would be lovely? A holiday somewhere really peaceful, perhaps near the sea, where I don’t have to do anything at all. Maybe I’d just lie on a beach all day’, as if no one had ever thought of that before.
She humours me though.
This time I went for more of a country living vibe. I like a good country living inspired interior because it still has an element of nature, but it has a bit more of a solid, traditional feel to it too. There are still a lot of natural materials, but there is something very secure and safe feeling about it. Safe in a ‘returning to your family home’ way rather than in a ‘magnolia wall’ way.

Oak is my favourite kind of wood for a country living interior as it reflects this solidity perfectly. It has a beautiful grain, and I love the way it develops over time, changing colour and deepening in intensity. I’ve including some pieces in my board from the Quercus Living rustic oak range as I think these would fit very nicely with a country living look – good, sturdy pieces of furniture that really could be in that family home for life.
