Modern Pastoral

Bring the tranquility of nature into your home
Written by Niki Brantmark

Discover contemporary interiors inspired by natural landscapes.

Modern pastoral interiors are about embracing the pared-back lifestyle of living in the country, taking nature as the main point of inspiration. Use colors, textures, and details to create a home in which to unwind—a retreat from the rest of the world. Niki Brantmark explores various takes on this simple, informal style. The graphical look is striking, reminiscent of exposed landscapes: think whitewashed ceilings, rugged stone surfaces, and striking black features, softened by cozy soft furnishings and fresh plants and flowers. Savanna style introduces warmer hues, featuring painted wood and reds, oranges, and browns in textiles, furniture, and collectibles. Nordic interiors take in the best of the Scandinavian landscape—clean white backdrops against sleek designs—while those inspired by forest and mountain streams are filled with rich, deep greens and blues, combined with traditional patterns and features, such as log burners, wood paneling, and woven rugs. The stunning photography for this book takes in locations across Scandinavia and the United States, and all evoke an ideal, rural life, adapted to modern living.

Simple Home


Calm spaces for comfortable living

Sally Bailey, Mark Bailey

The simple home is calm and uncluttered, with each item carefully chosen. It’s in tune with the current desire to buy well-made, well-designed items that will grow old gracefully, and to create homes that are sustainable and stylish. This doesn’t mean a minimalist home—it’s about living in comfort in a carefully considered space. The Philosophy of the simple home explores Mark and Sally Bailey’s design ethos. Their Colour scheme is inspired by nature to create a feeling of tranquillity. Materials are reclaimed or reused, and ethically sourced. Calm reigns in the simple home—a haven from the stresses of life. Craft embraces the artisan’s skill and the pleasure of owning items that will last. Recycling furniture and materials will give your home an air of individuality, with old and new objects living happily alongside each other. Comfort is paramount, with cosy textiles and warm wood. A rediscovery of old-fashioned Natural Cleaning methods will nurture your home—try the Baileys’ own recipes for cleaning products without harsh chemicals. Furniture is sustainable, with clever storage to hide necessities. Finally, Curating Your Home looks at ways to make your space into your very own museum of cherished possessions. The Baileys then turn to simple Spaces, showing you how to create welcoming yet practical Entrances and Hallways, versatile, convivial Cooking and Eating spaces and supremely comfortable Living spaces. Bedrooms are soothing places with possessions tucked neatly away, while Bathrooms are functional yet warm. Workrooms are a joy to furnish with rescued desks and fittings from old offices or former factories. Above all, the Baileys urge you to surround yourself solely with the objects that you really love and to enjoy the beautiful calm of an uncluttered home.
