The countryside remains a vital part of life, but that does not mean that country houses are set in decorative aspic. Where new houses are built, it is natural to employ contemporary design solutions, but these same types of solution and innovative ideas work equally well when old spaces are given over to new uses, converted, renovated or just revived. Country living is associated with a relaxed, more informal way of life, and the houses in Modern Country reflect that life, in an up-to-date and relevant way. Modern Country presents some of the most exciting and interesting examples of contemporary interior design, exploring homes in the mountains, by the sea, and in the deepest parts of the countryside. Modern Country isfull of inspiration and new ideas on how to achieve comfortable modern living with the clean lines and edited design of today.
