How to decorate the country house

Ready to make your home surrounded by greenery unique? We have some advice for you

The charm of the city is undeniable, but who among you has never dreamed of a delightful house surrounded by greenery? They are beautiful, surrounded by the quiet and colors of nature and are an excellent investment for those looking for a holiday home where they can reinvigorate body and spirit.

If you have just bought a house in Trevis o, far from the noise of the city, or if you are thinking of doing it, here are some tips on how to furnish the country house to the best and make it superlative.


Life in the countryside is extremely different from that in the city. The rhythms, the sounds, the colors, but above all the environments change. In the countryside it is easier to find old farmhouses that have been renovated or restored, rustic or farmhouses. In our catalog, for example, there are several houses for sale in Treviso Fuori Mura that enjoy a large garden and numerous rooms, but also the convenient proximity to the city.

Here wood is one of the dominant elements, which goes easily with any type of furniture, but gives its maximum contribution in classic styles such as country or shabby chic, where rustic and antiqued rhymes with elegance. Wood is then the absolute protagonist in houses with exposed beams and it does not matter which color is chosen: natural, solid, bleached or colored. In addition to being structural elements, wooden beams are now considered an important piece of furniture that can be added later. Perfect the combination of wood with iron, which gives that touch of uniqueness to bedrooms, but also to outdoor and indoor furniture.


Let's move on to the walls of the house. When one wonders how to furnish the country house, one of the most appropriate choices falls on the wallpaper. For some time back in fashion, it has reached its peak in country houses precisely because it is designed to infuse light and harmony to spaces. It is not easy to choose, because we must carefully consider the style adopted, the dominant colors, the size of the spaces. Once chosen and fixed to the walls, however, we assure you that it will communicate a lot of you in terms of style and character. Some advice? For those who love traditional moods, even the walls will have to recall this design choice with a damask or striped wallpaper.

Traditional can also rhymes with "vintage". In this case, it is better to choose geometric prints in optical style, which are very 1960s and 1970s. If, on the contrary, your detached house in Treviso has modern interiors, we recommend you try pastel-colored or even metallic-colored wallpapers.

It was once the new to rhymes with luxury. Today, the old returned to new life is too. There is nothing better in fact, for those who are about to furnish their country house, than to use antique furnishings, restored grandmother's furniture, old sofas brought back. The old-new combination is a real touch of class. In the kitchen, a large, perfectly polished oak dining table, alongside wooden benches or wicker chairs, will immediately attract attention. And what about the modern living room that goes with grandma's powerful trunk?

On the other hand, the countryside is the place dedicated to respect for nature and recovery. Here, more than anywhere else, we can dare with objects that testify the passage of one or more generations.


How to decorate the country house if not with huge colored rugs? They are an absolute must in the classic rural style. The most popular colors are, of course, the classics: red, orange, yellow, brown. Warm textures that recall the colors of the Treviso countryside. Many of our houses for sale Treviso have parquet or stone effect stone floors where the rugs with kaleidoscopic motifs stand out very well, giving dynamism, while remaining discreet. If, on the other hand, your intent is to dampen the corners of the house, we recommend furnishing with circular rugs that attract attention and connote the area in a completely unique way.

Furnishing your country house is truly a fun adventure and there is certainly no shortage of ideas. If the house of your dreams is missing, our real estate agency Treviso is the one you need to contact.
