Imagine a luxury escape to the country without leaving home. A contemporary twist on the country theme, “rural retreat” combines fresh and light elements, with rich timber textures and contrasting vibrant hues.
Stylish, indulgent and serene, the theme depicts a luxury getaway with the finer things in life.
To recreate this look, I suggest drawing inspiration from country retreats and layering with different textures and colours for added depth. Start with a light, neutral palette in a warm shade, such as cream or taupe and highlight with varying browns and olive greens for a cosy but contemporary feel.
Layer with rich, rustic timbers and deep plush rugs for texture, and contrast with a splash of vibrant colour, like indigo. Rich, indulgent fabrics add a touch of luxury.
