There is nothing quite like walking into a home that feels both warm and inviting, filled with memorabilia from the past that’s been collected through generations. A wood burning stove, grandmothers precious china, cozy quilted blankets, an antique hutch, rustic and timeless décor that mark the beauty of a well loved home. And today, we are thrilled to announce a new collection by Chesapeake, Countryside, filled with both warmth and style and that uses traditional Americana inspired designs in a fresh and modern way. Beautiful borders, time-worn textures, floral trails and vintage designs blend with gingham and patchwork prints, country chic damasks and more for a selection of wallpapers that mix the old with the new and provide you with a wonderful starting point to creating a memorable home that will be enjoyed for many years to come.
There is something about a log cabin that truly captures the charm of rustic life. Building a home out of the materials of the forest lends an authentic beauty, as if the structure sprung up out of the ground, as proud and natural as the trees and mountains around it. With lots of exposed wood, glowing with the slight variations of each tree, a welcoming hearth and windows letting in light to illuminate all those gorgeous angles, the interior of a log cabin is an enchanted place to be. These picturesque rooms below showcase how cozy and inviting a log cabin can be, as well as luxurious! We love the mix of elegance and comfort in these spectacular spaces.
This log cabin inspired interior is centered on the warm hearth. This space mixes natural materials like rock, wood, and wicker with classy touches like the silver candlesticks, and ornate Persian rug. It also has a touck of Americana with the wallpaper border above the mantel. Believe it or not, the chic distressed look of the walls is also wallpaper.
Unless you are lucky enough to live in one, log cabin and lodge style settings create a sense of retreat from the bustle of everyday life. This room just seems to invite us to gather around the table and laugh with friends or family, enjoying a leisurely game night. The decor and wall treatments are perfectly reminiscent of country life, from the antler chandelier to the fishing theme wall border.
Warm and Inviting Kitchens that Make You Feel at Home
Coats of paint, once fresh, now chipped to reveal a shabby chic distress. Hand embroidered linens, vintage plates, wide wood floor boards and heritage furniture passed down through the generations. With a farm house flair, country-chic decor truly creates a welcoming ambiance. What better place than the kitchen, where we gather to create nourishing and life affirming food, to invite a true sense of warmth? One of the most notable themes of country chic decor is the sense of history. Time honored furniture, rustic relics, and family heirlooms accept the beautiful patina of age with grace. Re-purposed items like a milking stool as a side table, or a collection of platters as wall art add to the authentic feel of a country chic kitchen. Items themed around country life, including farm memorabilia, nostalgic items, and Mason jars are a pretty pairing with classic prints like plaid, lace, flowers and toiles, traditional woodwork, wicker and burlap. Enjoy these country chic kitchens for some inspiration on this timeless decor style.
