7 Ways to Add Country Charm to your Home

When someone says that they have designed their home in a country style, we immediately think of an old-fashioned look. But just like the classic styles of decorating, the country charm design also keeps evolving. The words ‘earthy,’ ‘wholesome,’ ‘rustic,’  ‘honest’ and ‘handmade’ invoke the feelings of cosiness, and welcome, these words aptly describe country style. The new interpretation of the country look seems to work when it is integrated into an urban decor. A little bit of country charm will help to ease the decor of each room.
