‘COUNTRY STYLE’ IS, OF COURSE, RUSTIC AND RELAXED, BUT IT IS PARTICULARLY WARM, ELEGANT AND ROMANTIC. In contrast to the more opulent sensibility that might be found in the drawing rooms and salons of Paris, London, or Rome, Country décor is lived-in, timeless, and enduring. It is earthy—using light colors that are complimented by sunlight paired with natural materials and textures; surfaces are gently time-worn, edges softened. ‘Country style’ represents centuries of slow-paced, yet industrious living; family life centered around a glowing hearth, traditions and methods handed down through generations. It also transports you to gracious outdoor entertaining—Summer days with family and good friends gathered to enjoy fine wine and a simple meal of fresh local ingredients. This is truly ‘la belle vie’ or ‘bella vita.’PROVINCIAL / ESTATE COUNTRYSIDE COLLECTIONthe

05HEARTHSIDE MANTELS ‘FRENCH COUNTRY STYLE’ SPRINGS FROM THE GENTLE HILLS AND VALLEYS OF RURAL FRANCE. Stone farmhouses, terra-cotta tiled roofs, fields of fragrant lavender, golden light—it is rustic, warm, welcoming, and unpretentious, with an unstudied elegance. Natural materials like wood and stone figure prominently, and décor is built around a few well-loved family heirlooms. The soft color palate reflects France’s bountiful, sun-dappled landscapes, incorporating gentle hues of lavender, yellow, terra-cotta, and pale washes. The eect is humble and authentic, feeding the soul as well as the eye.

INSPIRED BY THE TEMPERATE CLIMATE AND LUSH ROLLING HILLS OF OLIVE GROVES, the perfectly spaced slender Italian cypresses lining road-ways, ‘Italian Country style’ is a timeless aesthetic that never fails to enchant. Rich in history, the Italian countryside is dotted with romantic terra-cotta tiled stone villas and farmhouses, some of which date back to the days of the Roman Empire, ‘Italian Country style’ is strong, simple, romantic, and rustic.

43HEARTHSIDE MANTELSTHE ARCHITECTURE OF THE ITALIAN COUNTRYSIDE IS CHARACTERIZED BY ITS IMPRESSIVE MASONRY, USING LOCALLY AVAILABLE MATERIALS: NATURAL STONE, STUCCO, AND TERRA-COTTA BRICK. Large and small stones are randomly combined in wall con-struction, creating a pleasing effect of undulating, irregular lines, and sturdy walls that can be up to three-feet thick. It’s the soft reddish limestone, ‘rosso ammonitico’, that gives ancient Italian villages their sun-burnished rosy glow—an effect that can be achieved in contemporary décors with natu-ral or cultured stone, or painted stucco. Ceiling architecture is often a highlight, with tiled barrel-ceilings, or massive timber beams, with stucco accents.The traditional Italian country home has a spacious and inviting kitchen with a prominent stone fireplace as its focal point where family and friends gather. Floors are of durable terra-cotta tile, built to last a hundred years or longer.
