Country styling is a popular option for homeowners as it champions traditional homewares and timeless décor.

But, be sure to keep it fresh and modern by updating your country scheme every season. Here are our top tips...

Subtle florals

Country décor is synonymous with florals but keep it subtle for 2020 by opting for wild floral patterns that aren't too 'in your face'. Be inspired by this Argos bedroom scheme and choose a reversible botanical-print duvet that can be used to style two separate looks.

Wall cladding

Country styling goes beyond soft furnishings and accessories, wall cladding is huge this year and is perfect for a modern country bedroom look. Whether you get in a carpenter to do the work or decide to take on the project yourself, a rustic finish is ideal for this style.

Rustic dresser

In terms of bedroom furniture, invest in timeless pieces that aren't neccessarily trend-led. Create a dressing area with a chest of drawers, style the top shelf with flowers and accessories – then hang a mirror above it, so it fulfills two functions: practical storage and a dressing area.

Opt for a neutral palette

Tone down your country look to a neutral, more digestable palette. Warm-toned beige and greys work perfectly, as well popular shades such as oatmeal and taupe, to give the country look a more sophisticated makeover for 2020.

Introduce rattan

Bringing in a few trendy pieces isn't a crime! With the rise of natural materials, there's plenty of rattan around that definitely suits the modern country look. Swap out your shabby chic bedside tables with rattan options or create a reading nook in the corner of your bedroom with a rattan peacock chair as the star of the show. 

Log cabin vibes

Take country literally and create your own cosy bedroom log cabin. This can be achieved a number of ways including introducing lots of wood into your bedroom space, opting for heavier fabrics for that sense of cosiness or letting in lots of light to bring the outside in.
