Country Style: Colour & Styling Inspirations

Country Style | Photography by Craig Wall
The moment I set eyes on this beautifully styled shoot in Country Style magazine I knew I would eventually wax lyrical about it over here on Bright.Bazaar! First off, the shoot includes the excellent Whitby wallpaper by my buddies over at Mini Moderns. I can see why they used the paper in the shoot because it’s teal-like colour way (affectionately named Washed Denim by the MM chaps!) works perfectly with the overall theme. The rustic wooden surfaces, eclectic mix and match glass jars and beautifully patterned tiles all combined to create an inspiring series of images that demonstrate top notch composition. Whether it be for how one decides on the tiles for a kitchen splash back or the new wallpaper for a guest bedroom, I think there are some great ideas here that can be used when cataloguing our own decorating inspirations at home. What inspires you about this colour-led shoot?

    I'm loving those geometric tiles. I'm a little bit obsessed by geometrics! And the tree wallpaper in the background. I think it's Cole and Son. I wish one of my clients would choose it for their home so i could design a scheme around it! Beautiful wintry colours.

    This makes me wanna go creative and arty – now I wonder whether I should turn my multi-winged apartment into a studio? We will see. Inspiring post:-)

    Aqua can be wintery too! I love the aqua paired with a bit of dusty rose pink and some black and white. Beautiful!

    Love, love, love! The colors are fantastic. I love warm browns with teal and light blues – perfect combo. Also, I adore anything nautical, so the wallpaper in the last shot is brilliant.

    @Saskiaj – The tiles are lovely and yes, the colours do feel quite wintery I agree!

    @Jessie – The styling is great, it's all about those little details! xx

    @Martine, Eleni – Love the blue hues!

    @Rachel – Oh, me too. I've been addicted to owls for ages now! xx

    @Jami – Mini Moderns are awesome. Seriously, let me know if you need anything from those guys and I'll put you in touch because they rock! Check them out for sure! xx

    @Tommy – That was one of my favourite styling elements, too!

    @Jon – Liking the colour idea for the new place. The whitby wallpaper could work well for a place by the sea, too!

    @Igor – Who needs a kitchen when you can have a studio?! ;)

    @Allison, MichaelaRae – Aren't they just! We have teal-coloured decorations at home this year! xx

    oooo i'm liking the metallic(?) burlap – it would make really pretty place mats or a full table runner.

    Love the soft colors here, although i normally tend to the brighter shades. So laid back and done with so much taste and care. Love your blog here, very inspiring!
