    Getting the folk trend

    by  • July 3, 2009 • Beautiful boudoirs, Stylish living • 0 Comments

    Folk-style has been a big interiors trend this year.  I’ve started to warm to the style much more.  I think I’ve come up with four rules that get you the look.

    • Keep backdrops such as walls and windows simple
    • Mix and match patterns, this is a big deal for the folk look
    • Add warm wood, stay away from brightly coloured wooden furniture
    • Pick pretty, intricate accessories; carved and cutwork is perfect

    Check out some of my favourite folk-style rooms

    Things I love about this kitchen:

    • The twin pendant lights hanging over the dining table
    • The open shelving displaying food jars and crockery
    • The painted white floor boards
    • The mix of green metal chairs and rustic wooden table
