Classic country or Modern country? Which are you?

I like country style - but country style can encompass sooooo many looks. I thought I'd see which way you guys leaned - "traditional" country, or "modern" country.

Lets start with classic country:

Love this organized but full-of-charm home office.

Gorgeous - and the chicken wire screens are great too.





...or do you like a more contemporary country?

This bedroom is so stunning - and the monochromatic palette keeps the damask from being too busy for a bedroom

Which do you prefer?

I love them all, so what does that say about me? :)
I'm probably a mix, I guess, leaning toward the modern side.

Hi I am a stranger to your blog but love it.

I too love country style but I am more contemporary country. I love that table with the modern chairs. Just stunning.

I found my Self sitting, cooking, chopping, making, eating, working, painting, dyeing, and writing in the very last image of white on white, wide open cupboards with the doors blown off. A simple, little old fashion fridge near by, and a rustic utility movables to manipulate.
I am there.

Great post- have to say contemporary country. Though I love antique and vintage finds- I am partial to clean lined pieces mixed in!

Your classic country looks awfully modern to me... but I lived through the super-authentic but quickly dated 70's country. Classic country it is then!

Love the images! I'm a classic country without a doubt. Too many things in my house!
Great blog :)

Have you seen how many alarm clocks are next to the bed in the fourth picture? Who wouldn't find it hard to get out of that bed though!!

Ashley said...

Wow, I didn't notice. I have been known to sleep through 2 alarms...

Rachel said...

Hmmmm.... I really like both!!
Some of the modern country is a little too modern for me, and some of the classic is too girly. So, maybe a mix of the two?? ;-)

Real non-committal answer there, huh?

But I do really love the first office shot!

I think I'm a hybrid. None of the images appeal to me in there entirety but I do love different bits from all the pictures. So what does that make me?

Meredith said...

I think I'm definitely classic country, but with the less-clutter that comes from contemporary country

I've been searching the Internet for the wallpaper in the pic with the dresser and white scroll mirror. Dying to have it. Where can I find it??
