Make it

Country Sampler's Prarie Style - - Modern Pioneer -

THE SE­CRET TO BLEND­ING STYLES IS TO CHOOSE PIECES WISELY, EM­PHA­SIZE A FEW THEMES THAT IN­COR­PO­RATE DIF­FER­ENT LOOKS, AND EL­E­VATE THE OR­DI­NARY TO STAR STA­TUS.

Pare Down Keep the look easy on the eye. Rhonda and Justin’s home isn’t min­i­mal­is­tic by any means, but they try to avoid any ex­tra “fluff,” be­ing true to a farm­house life.

Make Wise In­vest­ments Hunt for in­ter­est­ing pieces that can dou­ble as stor­age. Don’t be afraid if they need a lit­tle work, but don’t make old, weath­ered or rusty items look too per­fect!

Har­ness the Light Neu­tral col­ors em­pha­size nat­u­ral or ar­ti­fi­cial light­ing. This makes a room feel twice as big. Rhonda adds sea­sonal pops of color with fresh- cut flow­ers, frames and other small dec­o­ra­tive items, and pil­lows.

Don’t Dis­crim­i­nate Mix old with new! “I have bought ‘re­pro’ items when it makes sense,” Rhonda says. Light­ing is one cat­e­gory that is safer new.
