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.
There’s a beautiful detail to be found no matter what corner you turn in this house #homedecor #homesweethome

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.
Have a browse through my country living interiors Pinterest board, and see what you think – do let me know what catches your eye!
Oak is our favourite type of wood too, but it can be really expensive. It takes many years for the oak tree to grow, hence it’s one of the most rear wood type. However, it can last for hundreds of years. This has given me an idea to write about different types of wood to use for home. Anyway, if you are going to buy oak wood flooring then you might as well save a large part of that money by using http://www.KidStart.co.uk
