Description

A stunning collection of some of the most exciting and interesting examples of the contemporary in French interior design, exploring homes in the mountains, by the sea, and in deepest parts of the countryside. Containing rarely seen images from the exclusive Côté Maison magazines, this sumptuous book brings together homes that exemplify the very best in contemporary country style – perennially desirable and effortlessly attainable.

Country living has long been associated with a relaxed, informal way of life and a sense of tradition. This strong appreciation of rural traditions does not mean, however, that all country homes are relics of the past, set in decorative aspic. Contemporary solutions and innovative ideas work equally well when old spaces are given over to new uses, converted, renovated or just revived. Presenting some of the most exciting examples of the contemporary interior design, Modern Country is full of inspiration on how to achieve that highly desirable ideal of comfortable country living combined with the clean lines and edited design of today.

The book considers the appeal of contemporary rural havens, mountain retreats and coastal escapes and looks at agricultural conversions, country house renovations and new buildings, as well as the use of different materials, such as stone, brick and glass. The final part of the book is dedicated to different living spaces in the home that reflect the warm pace of life in the country while being resolutely modern.

Make a Pet Bowl Holder Out of a Pallet

During their happy eating bonanza, water is splashed and drooled onto the floor, bowls are scattered, and paws help spread the mess once the meal is done. Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
