Country Style Living Rooms

Isn't this simply a gorgeous living room? The ceiling is
beautiful along with the linear display of frames above the
fireplace. The color palette is soothing to the eyes and the
furniture looks comfortable - all the elements of a homey
country styled living room (with a modern twist.)

I love the use of color and the space planning in this living
room since it is a small room. Everything fits in here perfectly.
The ceiling treatment is pretty interesting and draws the eyes
up to the ceiling. I'm not traditionally a fan of yellow rooms but
I like this room. The sofa has a really neat upholstery treatment.

Must be something about that cheery yellow today.
Don't the armchairs look oh so comfortable? Makes
me want to snuggle up in one to read.

A wonderfully feminine but airy living room. Way to use
peaches and pinks in a room. The china cabinet to the left
is painted in a really pretty shade of pink.

Every thought of what a baby pink sofa would look like?
Here it is with matching pink lined in the book cases.

This room is very well laid out and accessorized perfectly.
Country style isn't known for being sparse. This room
strikes a good balance between having accessories for
interest and having too much to where it looks cluttered.

Shabby Chic anyone?

I love this particular living space is a bit more
eclectic with a surprising green lamp paired with
the red chairs.

What a beautiful country living room - in whites and creams.

Another airy but inviting living room. I so adore wood
burning fireplaces - although it's not so easy to light real
wood! I tend to use something like Duraflame.

Anywho, hope you've enjoyed this group of country styled
living rooms. Definitely built for style and comfort.

I'm a fan of all styles, but when it comes to my own living, it is that of cottage casual comfort decor. These are beautiful rooms.
Come join Kari and Kijsa and myself for the "Doors to Adore" party tuesday, April 7th. I know you'll have some great ideas to show.
Have a wonderful day!

Lovely, inviting rooms - thanks for sharing! I particularly liked the second yellow room (with the traditional fireplace) and the two white & cream rooms you posted last.

Country's come a long way since ducks and heart-shaped cutouts in wood furniture!

My favorites are the blues and pinks. My hubby and I just bought a new home that's over a 100 years old (parts of it)! I'm going to try and sneak some pink into the decor... wish me luck!

I just love the first pic and the two pink and white rooms! I wish more people would decorate with pink - gorgeous! Tracey xx

Those are such beautiful rooms, I love the pink sofas in the one living room, so gorgeous.

Though the baby pink sofas were certainly a surprise, I immediately fixated on the lined bookshelves. This does make my mind wander so...

I love these rooms! So beautiful. I am in need of help...maybe someone can solve my issue. I have a odd shaped living room with a HUGE fireplace that is a whole wall. Is it ok to back a sofa up to it? I have tried every configuration and am at a loss.

Nice themes/styles. Those can be used as inspiration even for condo owners who have very little space to work on. Thanks for the share!
