For those who are hosting their family and friends for the holiday period, perfection is the aim to strive for. Creating the base for the festivities brings with it the pressure to create the perfect setting for an enjoyable holiday celebration. The inner perfectionist in many people comes to the fore as they attempt to accommodate their loved ones in the grandest fashion. Efforts are increased to attain perfection throughout the festivities. This perfection is sewn into every aspect of the celebration from the food served to the décor and the setting.
One of the most idyllic holiday scenarios to create is the cosy country cottage. Innumerate different mediums promote the countryside cottage as the paramount setting. Music videos released at this time of the year inevitably feature the artists throwing snowballs outside of a picturesque countryside cottage before settling beside the brick fire.
Even those who live in a large metropolitan city can create the country cottage appearance within the home. Despite the rat-race and hustle and bustle of city life, the relaxing nature of the countryside cottage can be sewn into any home.
One of the most prominent features of the countryside cottage is the usage of dark woods and simple primary colours. Dark reds and greens sit alongside mahoganies beautifully to create a breathtakingly traditional appearance. The country cottage appearance is born out of the sense of home comforts. Eschewing the minimalistic appearance of many inner-city apartments and dwellings; the country cottage thrives on a sense of organised clutter.
The country kitchen is one of the most defining features of such a cottage. Traditional fittings and utensils in simplistic tones create the sense of yesteryear. The room where function is favoured above fashion can become the stylistic candle bearer for the whole house.
Many people make the mistake of redecorating one room in this style whilst ignoring the rest of the house. This only serves to alienate that room from the house when a sense of flow is needed to authenticate the décor. One of the fittings in the home that truly creates a sense of flow is the staircase. The staircase connects the floors of the home and so is important when creating the full picture.
Traditional Wooden Staircases can create the authority of traditional appearance. Timelessly elegant and sophisticated a Timber Staircase is versatile enough to work alongside a wide range of different feature colours.
One of the most important features to create the authentic interior of a countryside cottage is a roaring fire. The family sat around the fire is one of the most common holiday pictures. For those who cannot or do not want to implement a real fire in their home, there is a wide range of faux fireplaces to fill the void.
