Featured This Month: Rustic English Country Style
Each month we handpick one talented Instagrammer and their impeccably beautiful home to be featured in our journal and on our Instagram page. We are truly inspired daily, by all the talent that we see and just have to share with you. This month we bring you, the charming and rustic country style home of @painttherosesred_interior.
Christine’s love of Alice in Wonderland has inspired the charming accessories in her rustic country home, including the name of her account and her business.
Famously in the Alice in Wonderland novel, the Queen of hearts demanded “paint the roses red!”
“I just love Alice in Wonderland and when I started my business, I was turning unwanted items of furniture into something people wanted and would love – simply by painting them! Just like how the roses were painted in order to make the Queen happy!”
Each room in Christine’s home radiates rustic country charm, combining traditional and modern fixtures, resulting in aesthetically stylish décor and a truly comforting ambience. We were delighted to have discovered Christine’s beautiful home on Instagram, especially when she tagged us in a number of her posts, showing off our baskets in her home. We just love how the rusticity of our baskets fit the theme of her country home and can’t wait to take you on a little tour. From roaring fireplaces beside olde-worlde books, cosy armchairs and stylish panelling, let’s escape down the rabbit hole and into Christine’s world of style and inspiration.
A Modern-Country Kitchen
First up, we visit Christine’s kitchen, featuring our Grey & Buff Rattan Wicker Storage Baskets perfectly placed underneath her beautifully rustic wooden butchers block.
What a place to cook! We just love the dreamy décor and cannot get enough of the brick feature wall above her cooker. Elegance is everything in Christine’s home and the muted “greige” colour scheme combined with unique touches, such as the brass cup handles of the cupboards are the perfect contrasting blends of interior. Not to mention our Grey & Buff Rattan Wicker Baskets look fabulous underneath her stylish butchers block (if we do say so ourselves!).
Our baskets offer the perfect sturdy, storage solution. Delicately handwoven from thick rattan, these versatile baskets are available in 3 sizes. Perfect for storing, just about anything in the home!
A Modern-Country Rustic Utility Room
Over in Christine’s beautifully decorated utility room, she has switched up the interior from a bold and dynamic charcoal shade on the left to a neutral beige with pink undertones for warmth on the right, complete with a pot of fresh lavender for a light and calm fragrance and a subtle beige curtain to hide the washing machine.
Our Grey & Buff Rattan Deep Wicker Storage Baskets are situated perfectly in this unit, which looked so fabulous against the original bold, dramatic shade but we think they look equally as beautiful against this stylish muted colour. Our baskets are so versatile, that they look perfect with any type of interior. Whether your home is bold, neutral, minimalist or maximalist, Grey & Buff Rattan Baskets are the perfect storage pieces for any type of décor and for any room in your home.
A Timeless Modern-Country Nursery
For a little tidying and de-cluttering inspiration that will inspire you to spruce up your storage ideas, check out Christine’s beautiful nursery for her daughter.
For a modern and innovative look in the nursery, she has chosen very stylish wall panelling, adding a striking feature to an otherwise very plain wall and of course a muted colour palette, that will last her little one a lifetime.
Those that have a nursery will know that this room can become a little cluttered during playtime. With toys, books and clothes strung everywhere, you have a recipe for potential chaos. However, with Christine’s fantastic organisation skills and her eye for style, she has chosen Grey & Buff Cube Storage Baskets to fill the spaces in her cubed unit and a selection of our Grey & Buff Rattan Deep Wicker Storage Baskets, which are perfectly aligned at the top for extra storage.
Cosy English Fireplace Inspiration
Are you ready for the ultimate space of comfort? In any English country home, you will find a fireplace (or an artificial one) and Christine’s fireplace certainly does not disappoint.
With absolutely beautiful rustic brickwork and creative tiling, you have a stunning assortment of style and cosiness. The perfect place to relax next to on a drizzly autumnal day by the fire. To complete the space Christine has added a Grey & Buff Rattan Square Cube Wicker Storage Basket to store all of her logs, plush pumpkins to reflect autumnal charm and candles in tall, chunky ceramic holders for a gentle glow.
When your environment is tidy you feel happy, motivated and healthy and we don’t know about you but we feel that we could relax in any of these rooms! Now it’s time to chill in a luxurious tweed armchair and put your feet up on a comfortable leather stool. Indulge in a glorious hot chocolate to warm your hands and grab a soft blanket from a Square Grey & Buff Rattan Log Basket for cosy moments.
