How To Give New Builds Modern Country Style!

Welcome to:


donker grijze voordeur

Let's get the show off with a bang by looking at a fairly typical new build that has been absolutely beautifully decorated. It's rather non-descript from the outside, though even here, little hints of what's to come shine through...

Inspiring, doncha think? 

'How do I bring Modern Country Style to a new build?' is one of the questions that I'm most often asked by gorgeous readers.

This lovely house demonstrates one of my key points perfectly, and it's one we'll be delving into deeper later on in the series. Just look at the palette used in these images.

Yes, I'm harping on again about taking a limited selection of muted, pared-back colours and using this palette, and only this palette to really pull a scheme together. You'll be amazed and, I hope, thrilled with the results.

And if you're stuck with colour choice then, as in this sea of prettiness, white, grey and brown will take you a very long way indeed.


 As long-term subscribers to this li'l blog will know, we live in an Edwardian home in the English Cotswolds, so I'm really excited to be able to finally show you in 'real life' how to bring Modern Country Style to a new build, as I reveal our new extension.

And while we're kicking off this new series, I'll be getting on with all the behind-the-scenes boring stuff! I am looking forward to having a little less gloss paint on my hands, and a little more time in the evenings! But it'll be sooooooo worth it...just you wait and see what I have in store for you!
