Country style decorating has been popular for many years, and in fact is a hodge podge mixture of style that are laid back and easy, incorporating fun print fabrics, elements of rustic decorating as well as some that might be seen as luxury or elegant.

Quilts, log or rustic furniture as well as ruffles, lace, stuffed animals and baskets all fit well into the country decorating theme.
