We look at how you can achieve this calming, rustic look in rooms around your home.

Country style has long been a favourite for homeowners. This year, the look has a modern twist making it a popular choice for young families that want the welcoming feel of country style but with accents of contemporary upholstery, accessories and furniture. We take a peek at how you can achieve this calming, rustic look around your home.

Living Room

If you're lucky enough to have a timber beamed property, it's great to incorporate them into your home design. The above pic proves that modern and contemporary furniture and accessories can sit equally comfortably with traditional architectural elements. Walls are kept plain to accent the beam details, while furniture and accessories are in earthy palettes and monochromes. To match this design, we chose our Hobbs floor, which adds the look and feel of timber, plus it's an easy to install and budget-friendly option.

Dining Room

Dining areas are great spaces to add this welcoming and comfortable style and can be brought right up to date with some cleverly chosen accessories. For a bold update, consider swapping white paint for a dark monochrome such as this charcoal black that's been used on traditional furniture and is mirrored in the choice of modern furniture. Walls are kept to calming palettes, while artwork and accessories incorporate outdoor elements to add that rustic connection. A traditional timber look floor adds to this room's appeal, and we chose our Jacobsen vinyl as the perfect design partner.


This gorgeous, fresh country style kitchen is given an update with a modern accent colour in lavender. Traditional elements such as this refectory table, tumbled stone effect floor and painted white furniture are partnered with bold contemporary artwork, accessories and coloured accessories to match the colour scheme. The flooring used in this kitchen is Clark from our Ultimate Tones collection. Its subtle pattern adds a modern twist while the stone effect incorporates that traditional stone effect floor.


If you are looking for a bright bathroom space, then consider going for a pale suite that can be updated with patterned walls and floors. We love this country style print wallpaper that provides a comforting oasis in this small bathroom. Painted wood panelling and furniture keeps true to that country-style look. We've chosen our beautiful Sagres floor that looks like traditional tiles but is a cushioned vinyl that's a practical choice for family bathrooms and is easy to install and comfy for bare feet!
