For those who favour a homely, cosy and romantic feel to their home, this rustic style is for you. With origins in farm and rural cottages in the English countryside, this style is natural and down to earth with attention to comfort as much of daily family life was centred in the kitchen. Key features include wooden ceiling beams, flagstone flooring, arched doorways and kitchen islands.
Colours are earthy, from beige and ochre to blue accents. Accessorise with hanging framed pictures, potted herbs on the window sills, vases of flowers and collections of copper pots, teacups and teapots in glass cabinets.
