Modern Country Swatchbook

I was watching an HGTV show the other day & as the designer went along I was LOVING everything about the room. It was beautiful! So light, airy and comfortable looking...then she described the look as "modern country" — Oh. Oh no. This can't be! I grew up in the Midwest & if any of you readers can relate, you know Midwest country is craft fairs, Americana red, white and blue...Boyd's Bears...apples made from fabric and buttons! (I just described my parent's house btw, I'm sure my mom is rolling her eyes!) Say it isn't so, I can't possibly like something COUNTRY!? But it was true, this modern country was exactly my style! Natural fabrics like cotton & linen, pale teal and a marigold yellow and accents of crisp white — an epiphany! :) I was so excited I bought this painting for my living room!

So as I am working on the next phase of Swatchbook Weddings, I will be posting the different swatchbooks for my invites and then we'll be launching our site so you can order online! Here is my inspired palette...

Your description of a country household describes the homes of every single one of my aunts to a T.

You forgot to mention longaberger baskets, though:

But crazy basket cults aside...I'm diggin' the MODERN country color combos. Keep up the good work!

Hahahaaa! How could I have been so forgetful - they are TOTALLY midwest country!! That & mom had checks and apples stenciled in our kitchen.

Thanks for the kudos Tena!! :)
