Country Casual is the perfect style for those dreaming of escaping the rat race for rural peace. This style has the hallmark of comfortable, welcoming elegance. Dissimilar types of period furniture and unmatched patterns and colors are used with an eye toward balance and proportion. The effect has been called "shabby chic". The Country Casual decorating style gives the impression of fine furniture and fabrics having been collected over time and lived with by generations of ancestors.

Country Casual style is timeless and welcoming with a casual mix of patterns and soft, muted colors.

The Country Casual look is comfortable but not luxurious, pretty but not fussy, familiar but not boring. It is a timeless look and is particularly at home in houses made of brick, timber or stone. Texture and the sense of touch is especially important in the Country Casual style, including cool stone and warm wood, rough baskets and soft wool, velvets and homespun.

Interior colors tend to be complex, not pure. And patterns are mixed with abandon—gingham checks with geometric quilts, floral hooked rugs with Chinese porcelain.
