The history of home catalogs goes back more than 100 years to the original Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalog. Since then, millions of catalogs have been produced. Many of the country decor catalogs are similar to wandering through an old general store of bygone days.
There are a number of styles under the general term "Country Decor." Americana country is the style represented by patriotic symbols such as the U.S. flag, stars and hearts. For the Americana look, try the Piper Classics catalog.
Another popular style within the country decor genre is French Country. The look is awash with light, white and bright colors. For beautiful shabby chic furniture, accessories, lamps and bedding, order a catalog from Layla Grayce.
You may prefer a more rustic country look, resembling a mountain lodge or fishing cabin. One catalog that features log furniture, antler chandeliers and everything in between is Country Critter.
No room is truly complete without some kind of treatment to your windows. Window curtains, valences, scarves, shutters and blinds give your room a complete look and adds to its overall coziness. For nice curtains, check Country Curtains catalog, as this company has been selling quality curtains at reasonable prices for more than 50 years from Stockbridge, Mass. Its free country decor catalog offers silk, lace and cotton curtains, shades, panels and valances. It also has other window decorating accessories, such as curtain rods and finials, in addition to home-ware such as lamps, rugs and prints.
There are many benefits to ordering from a free country decorating catalog. You can match fabric colors and accessories on the spot, find the best prices and take advantage of specials and discounts.
Each of the catalogs listed offers great lighting sources. From large iron chandeliers to small tin-punched candle lights, setting the warm, cozy atmosphere requires proper lighting.
Another warming effect is flooring. Country decor features wooden floors with soft cushioning rugs. Toss some handmade rugs at the foot of your favorite chair and next to the bed to create that comfy atmosphere.
