Country is back!

Yes I know you didn't like it the first time!
But it's a new way of's not your normal country criterion. Unexpected mixtures of contemporary and country ingredients make up the new country crib.

Ralph Lauren has done country for as long as I can remember and he is dusting it off and rolling out his new take on it with the Hudson Valley collection.

I have my own vision of how I want to introduce country into my client's home...I used a farm table patch work here...but a good old worn wood table with thrush seated chairs sitting pretty on bare wood floor in an extremely contemporary Elliot Tower penthouse.

It's not grandma country...its a combo of new and old. If you have a old desk pair it with a sleek modern chair...that sort of thing. If you use nothing but old stuff you end up feeling like you are living at great Aunt Della's house.
