A collection of country bedrooms












I was perusing bedrooms on Country Living's website, and I found some that caught my eye. Altogether they aren't too "Victorian B&B," but rather more like bedrooms you'd find in a country house- relaxed style, linen, vintage touches and handed down furniture and decorative objects. Nothing is too matching or too styled. I like the light use of florals- I'm always afraid of floral prints, but they manage not to convey a matronly or outdated style here, so I'm looking at how and where they should be used.

I'm coming around to the floral prints, too - with all the oversized bontanicals I'm seeing lately - I really have fallen in love. I also love all those old landscape paintings over bed 2.
Happy Wednesday!

i have officially fallen in love with bed frames and makeshift headboards. my bedroom is far too small for a bed frame :(

The antique shops in London are bursting with lovely old floral oil paintings probably done by somebody's Grandma. Very country bedroom!
