Key features

The modern country style is about bringing all the beauty of a rustic, farmhouse look into the now using key pieces. Think reclaimed wood furniture, vintage-look gingham and woven textiles, and a mix of ceramic and ironware homewares.


Our Hampton Island Buffet is an example of crisp, clean lines of a functional yet stand out kitchen piece. Its crisp white finish with a wooden cedar top echoes the classic country look for your kitchen.

The beauty of a kitchen decorating is your kitchen wares can be left out! Display your kitchen ceramics, cookware and don’t forget your rolling pins by using open shelving and bench top vignettes. You can store your tea, coffee and sugar in rustic style canisters in either ceramic or metal and set in a vignette of three on a bench top or shelf.

Display your serving ware such as plates, cups and dishes neatly in open shelving or store them in a buffet that matches your country feel kitchen, such as our Hampton 4 door Buffet. Organise messy utensils by using a holder for your benchtop vignettes with wooden chopping boards. Don’t forget you can update your tea towel textiles simply from gingham checks to contemporary waffle weave.


Lift your living space by really harnessing the vintage look with wooden table tops, crisp white finishes and metal cabinet pulls. Picking key items like our Hampton Dining Table and Hampton Coffee Table means your styling becomes simple with changing your choice of décor rather than furniture when you feel like a refresh.

A great way to easily changeup your dining table style is to apply your farmhouse look through your choice of table runners, placements and napkins, and serving ware. Try natural fibres, natural fibres in prints, checks and waffle weave, ceramic dishes and a centrepiece. Go large with your centrepiece and gather a bundle garden flowers, branches of gum leaves or an artificial spray – really, you’re spoiled for choice from your garden, local florist or a walk in the park for ideas of bringing the outdoors inside with a homely feel.


Whilst you want to bring in farmhouse style, you don’t want it to put all your eggs in one basket with decorations alone. Rather than think about your decoration and where it will fit, try thinking about your room more broadly as a blank canvas, and identify key areas such as tabletops, soft furnishings and walls to decorate.
Ways to bring the country living look easily into a space is by using classic colours such as British racing green, oatmeal, royal blue and whites in your soft furnishings. You can then build on these hues in your textile choices, such as soft velvet greens, natural textured creams and accented prints in blues.
