This is about having enough but not too much, and the desire to get back to our roots, escaping modern day distractions. Less whimsical than the European folk influences of Hillside Homemaker, this trend has a Canadian feel; think log cabins, frozen lakes, and the undulating beauty of snowy landscapes and mountains.
This trend is a design style of opposites: plain and decorative; hard and soft materials; cosy and basic; masculine and feminine; always with the presence of a skilled human hand in the form of lovingly crafted products.
This trend is an evolution of our King & Country and Country Ideals trends.
Use a colour palette that resonates reliability, sturdiness and combines a burst of rich red blossom with black, hot caramel with dark denim, and forest greens with pale rope shades. Experiment with knitted, crocheted, appliquéd and quilted products such as lighting, chairs and even ceramics. Products made of rope also play their part. Wooded Canadian landscapes provide inspiration for surface pattern design with flora and fauna subtly present in wallpapers, carpets, upholstery fabric and bedding, creating a pleasing harmony alongside the deeply textured designs in this trend.
Add hand-crafted wooden screens, trunks and log footstools. Ceramics and vases are softened with fuzzy geometric and lace-inspired pattern designs. Check cushions, faux fur and
crochet blankets add a comforting touch to your winter haven.
Complete the look with crafted oak wooden effect floors, heather style carpets in grey and dark denim blue, or textured wool carpets in natural beiges and forest greens. This look is perfect for open-plan living areas, lounges and cosy bedrooms.
