Gorgeous Modern Country Style bedroom

I love this Modern Country Style bedroom. It would be perfect for growing boys, too, or to double up as a guest room, don't you think?

Modern Country New Build Home Tour

I'm always so impressed when I stumble upon a new-build with stylishly decorated Modern Country interiors, such as this coastal dream in West Sussex.

Modern Country Style perfectly spans the bridge between the kind of frilly and floral country style that used to only be the domain of the manor house, and the slightly stark contemporary chic that was made for new homes. It can give a softness, a character to brand spanking new homes, which not many other looks can.

Take a look around and see what you think....

It's this child's bedroom that really caught my eye. I love its blend of form and function.

With a simple palette throughout of white paired with Farrow and Ball Lamp Room Gray, this would be such an easy look to adapt to your own home.

Modern Country loves...Union Jack rugs

Sometimes, something so deliciously Modern Country comes along that I simply can't wait to share it with you!

Such a momentous occasion has arisen, my friends.
I ordered this Union Jack rug from Cox and Cox
for the boys bedroom a while back and I am still smitten. 

You know how some mail order buys 
completely surpass your expectations?
This is one of them.


The picture doesn't do the rug justice.
The colours are much darker and richer and infinitely more Modern Country. The 100% wool tufts feel soft and reassuringly good quality under bare little feet (and bigger mummy feet too!).

The backing is edged beautifully. I love it when gorgeous details are placed where they're not even meant to be seen...you know they're there for just the sheer pleasure of looking good.

If you've been searching for a thoroughly eye-catching 
Union Jack rug, 
let your search stop here.
Jackpot.

{Edited note: the rug was from Cox and Cox who have stopped this particular rug but still stock the star version, or you can buy a very similar version here}

Union Jack-inspired boys bedroom!

This was the bedroom that got me thinking, I LOVE bedrooms inspired by the colours of the Union Jack flag...and, best of all, incorporating the flag itself....

Are Boys Bedrooms Too Pretty?

The problem I find with many beautifully designed boys bedrooms is that they look, simply put, too pretty. I often help my clients to work through this very issue. You should be looking to strike the balance so that everyone is thrilled with the result!

This room is gorgeous but hanging hearts on the chest of drawers? Beading on the blinds? Really?!!
