Scandinavian style may be all the rage, but our own Aussie style also has its own unique characteristics that can be applied to your home interiors. From earthy tones and fabrics to bold colours taken from the sea and sky, you can capture the quintessential Australian look for your home.
From the Aussie bush we can take eucalyptus hues and bold blues and mix these colours with wood and stone textures and even use corrugated iron to capture the essence of the outback.
For Australian country inspiration, forget bold colours and look to a neutral backdrop with a colour scheme of whites and creams. You can add interest to a room with contrasting accessories. Soft shades like mint or dusty blues work, while hints of deep red or butter yellow can also make a subtle space pop. Pattern is very important too for the country look to work, so don't be afraid to mix up stripes, checks and spots with some floral pieces.
Inherited timber pieces with a history are a key part of furnishing a country home. They can also be a mix of old and new, not just matching sets. If you don’t have any heirlooms then check out your local Salvos, auctions or garage sales to pick up a few special pieces that can work in your home.
Country style is all about spending time at home, so floor and table lamps are important for providing a softer light to relax in and read a book after a hard day at work. Flowers and greenery bring the outdoors in, and help to create that country-home feel. Freshly picked flowers make a room look and smell amazing and inviting, and are a simple addition.
By adding a few key elements you can easily and cost-effectively transform your home into an Australian styled haven.
