12 Ways to Add English Country Charm to your Home

Are you looking for ways to add touches of English Country to your home? As you know, I am a huge fan of all things English Country. The look is relaxed and comfortable, cozy and layered. The look is collected and cherished, timeless and inviting. What's not to love? Here is a little list of 12 things that you can add to your decor that will bring in that quintessential English country charm. 1 WALKING STICKS & CANES Add a collection of canes and walking sticks to your entry hall. 2 STAFFORDSHIRE POTTERY Nothing screams English antique collectibles like Staffordshire pottery. It's really a MUST if this is the look that you wish to achieve. It has been around for over 250 years and manufactured and copied on and off through the years so it can be found in a wide price range. Older rare pieces are extremely pricey, but if you look -- you can find a piece or a collection that is perfect for you. Read more on collecting Staffordshire here. Have a pair of these sweet little lions on bases that I bought because of their kind expressions though they are reproductions. We found a matching pair of these large handsome glass-eyed lions in a Paris flea market years ago. This little Dalmation dog has a poorly repaired tail -- though he is very old. 3 GALLERY WALLS paintings anywhere and everywhere via 4 OLD TRUNKS/BOXES 5 TAPESTRIES/RUGS A French Aubusson tapestry cartoon framed in the living room. 6 EQUINE OR CANINE ARTWORK Southern Accents Magazine via I have mostly equine --- for obvious reasons. :D 7 PAISLEY/PLAID/CHINTZ/TICKING Though we don't have any chintz or ticking here, we do have an abundance of paisleys and plaids, tweeds, herringbones, and a few printed florals. Designer Lynn von Kersting via 8 ENGLISH CROCKERY I'm smitten with the advertising print designs on old British crockery. 9 ENGLISH OAK English oak biscuit barrel If you are looking for furnishings, add imported English oak to your home. Antique English oak hutch English oak has a warm golden-yellow tone and takes stain well. Considered the most durable and beautiful of the oaks -- harder than American oak -- with a satiny finish. You will find pub tables, hutches, sideboards, side tables, and wooden chairs in this style. You can also collect candlesticks, biscuit jars and lovely old wooden boxes.
