7. Think beyond vertical linesShadow box shelving is an increasingly popular alternative to long, vertical shelves, and can be a great option if you need to work your wall storage around furniture, size restrictions or awkward room layouts. They’re also great for creating unusual, eye-catching wall displays.
10. Expose some brickMany country-style homes are built from brick or have brick features inside them. However, a whole room of exposed brick wall is a very traditional look and can make the room dark. If you are lucky enough to have beautiful brick walls, such as the ones pictured here, then simply expose just one wall, or even just a section of one. Exposed bricks feel raw and rustic, and are made to look even more stunning when they sit next to smooth plastered walls in modern interiors. Add some contemporary artwork, or position a streamlined piece of furniture against the exposed brick, to tie it back to the modern finishes elsewhere in the home.Exposed bricks in the homeTELL USWhat country style elements have you incorporated into your modern home?
