Summary

Summary

Get white right! Country Living offers a fresh new view on classic white, with its many variations and ability to transform any room.

White is the ultimate color in country-style decorating--so of course Country Living has the ultimate take on white! Organized by design style (rustic, traditional, antique, and modern), the book's inviting images help you choose the right shade of white for any room--from delicate dove greys to tints with a pearly sheen and more. Whether you're on the hunt for just the right shade for your décor, a sturdy shade that can stand up to a busy family, a new way to warm up a blank wall, or a white that holds its own in classic color combos like red and white, blue and white, and black and white, Country Living provides the inspiration you need. "Bright Idea" tips throughout showcase design elements like beadboard cabinets, stone sinks, and even pops of color, and explain how each works to drive the overall neutral décor. Plus, do-it-yourself tips like "Paint it!" "Collect it!" and "Craft it!" encourage readers to add homespun charm to their homes with easy mini makeovers or weekend projects.

Chapters include: Why White, Getting White Right, Rustic White, Traditional White, Antique White, Modern White, Country Combos, The Bucket List: 25 No-Fail Paint Colors
