Create an English country scheme

Hinton sofa in an English country scheme

By Richelle Spooner-Davidson, Interior Design Consultant at the Witney showroom

The English Country style should conjure up thoughts of old shooting lodges and beautiful gardens.

Create a similar feel by introducing classic upholstered furniture covered in romantic florals, damasks in soft hues and timeless plaids. Accessorising with a treasured collection and prints of the countryside will help tie the scheme together.

How to create an English country look

Timeless grandeur

Mix traditional shades of green, tan and gold coupled with a grand English sofa style to create a scheme with a feel of grandeur and sophistication.

 

 

Traditional frames

Items such as the Malmaison armchair with its beautiful decapé wood frame, combined with other simple embellished pieces, perfectly capture this look.

 

Floral Elegance

Muted greens, pinks and pastel tones work well to create a light and breezy English country style.  Introducing an intricate damask design adds elegance to classic upholstery.
