Book Review: At Home With Country

I recently had the chance to read Christina Strutt's newest book.  Have you read it yet?
I swear the lady can do no wrong.  The book is gorgeous.  Simply oozing with inspiration.
I love her simple, uncluttered yet colorful take on decorating.
A few of my personal favorites from the book include this table.
I'm over the moon about the color.  It's simple lines and distressed state had me falling for it even faster.

And since were talking colorful painted furniture what do you think about this bench?
I love it.

It's not always about color. 
I'm drawn to shape and simplicity as well.  Like in this photo.
(I'd take that bench any day - - but did you notice the mailbox?  I'm swooning!!!)

Here's an example of using white and a single accent color in varying shades.  I have to say this is my favorite thing to do.  It always looks amazing and is a very "achievable" look for a person like me who is not overly talented in the decorating department.

Need another example?
Simple black and white.  You can't get a more classic combination.  Here it looks both classic and modern, cozy and country all at the same time.

All in all, the book is great, one I'm sure to reach for time and time again.

Until tomorrow,
