Country living room with exposed brick fireplace

Country living room with exposed brick fireplace

An exposed brick fireplace, log store and wooden beams lend this space a truly country feel. But it’s not all quite as rustic as you might expect. The upholstery and sofas have a very luxurious feel about them, and it’s definitely not the kind of country living room you would want dirty wellies tramping into.

Tent-like attic living room with sloped ceilings on both sides

Tent-like attic living room with sloped ceilings on both sides

Thinking of converting your loft to get an extra bedroom? If you have the space, consider creating a suite of rooms including a bedroom, en suite and living room. Alternatively, if you have a landing or hall at the top of a staircase, why not turn that into a comfy seating area, rather than using it as a thoroughfare?

Rustic den with exposed brick walls and concrete floor

Rustic den with exposed brick walls and concrete floor

Keep surfaces simple to create a striking look in a lounge area. Bare brick walls and concrete floors definitely give this room a rustic flavour, along with the piles of chopped logs. A rug in the centre of the seating area zones the space and adds a comforting feel underfoot.

Seating area with traditional armchairs and oversized clock

Seating area with traditional armchairs and oversized clock

This is a seating area at the end of the kitchen. Rather than a dining table, the space lends itself well to a lounge arrangement that’s all about the fireplace. It may not be the time of year for it, but in the winter, the wood burner really comes into its own. An oversized clock creates a further focal point.

Modern country living room with exposed brick wall

Modern country living room with exposed brick wall

The massive brick wall has a barnlike feel, even though the house is a new-build. As well as creating a rustic look, the brickwork contrasts wonderfully with the deep purple of the upholstery. Cream furniture acts as a highlighter, creating a perfectly balanced scheme.

Grey country living room with built-in log store

Grey country living room with built-in log store

Dark cladded grey walls create a Scandinavian feel that’s lightened with off-white sofas. Built in to the wall is a clever log store that is as decorative as it is practical. A wood-burning stove in the corner casts a warming glow over the space, which is especially lovely on cool spring evenings.

Relaxed country living room with botanical wallpaper

A room with ‘country house’ decor is the perfect home for a traditional leather sofa. Keep it classic with wool upholstered chairs, tartan and lots of natural wood for timeless chic. Masculine colours, patterns and accessories will stop this look from becoming twee. The branch-print paper adds subtle pattern without dominating the room.

Artworks speak volumes about your tastes, interests and preferences, and make a big impact in any scheme. The walls here have been painted in a pale shade of green, which is the ideal backdrop to this neutral print. Furniture has been kept similarly simple, but a variety of prints and patterns are dotted about to create a cosy feel.

Country living room with purple velvet armchair

Country living room with purple velvet armchair

Paint country living room walls in an off-white yellow shade to create a neutral scheme that suits the style and period of your home. This tone is warmer than white, but still versatile enough for all manner of colours to be included in the scheme. Here, interest has been added with the purple velvet armchair, patterned ottoman and plush mixture of cushions.

Rustic living room with wood-burning stove

Create a focal point with a wood-burning stove – after all, there’s something about the gently dancing flames of a real fire that makes people feel instantly at home. Fairy lights hung on a beam above the inglenook fireplace and on the main supporting beam also send a warming glow around the room.

Living room nook with photograph table

Put your favourite photographs on display by grouping them together on top of a table. It’s much simpler than committing to hanging them on a wall, and you can move them around very easily when you want others to come to the forefront. Keep the bigger frames towards the back, though, so that the smaller ones can be seen.

CHI Nov 17 p50 Cosy green country living room

Cosy green country living room

Add plenty of textured fabrics to a country scheme to create a welcoming feel. The dog-patterned cushion is super cute and goes perfectly with the green wall paint. A wood-burning stove or open fire is almost essential to achieving a country look. Ideal for keeping chilly nights at bay, stoves create a focal point in a room and achieve the hygge look we all aspire to.

Double-length country living room

Double-length country living room

Make the most of the natural structure of an old house by highlighting wooden beams and turning them into a real feature. This double-length living room benefits from a large open-plan feel, while providing two separate living spaces marked out by the supporting wooden structure. You can easily sneak between both, but it’s easy to get space, too.

Neutral country living room with traditional furniture

Neutral country living room with traditional furniture

Enhance a neutral country living room with traditional furniture in a beautiful wood that has plenty of character. The antique cabinet here has gorgeous markings on it and its depth of colour warms up the scheme. In this space, the walls are low-key and pared back, though the overall look quite ornate, with its gilt-framed pictures, wall-mounted candle holders and lavish log burner.

Rustic living room in Scottish cottage

Scottish-inspired rustic living room with cosy fireplace

Think outside the box – rustic often means going back to the bare walls and stripped timbers, but don’t be afraid to add a touch of comfort too. Choosing a wallpaper with an endearing linocut motif, such as the wheatsheaf print shown here, instantly evokes the sense of a country cottage. Brass accents and woven wool fabrics enhance the cosseting effect.
