I’m a modernist at heart, but classic country style always causes pangs of nostalgia for summer days at the family cottage spent jumping off the swimming rock, catching frogs, racing canoes and slapping mosquitoes.
For me, nothing says country charm like the pretty pairing of jolly red and jadeite green.
Add peeling painted furniture, store your stuff in vintage tin containers, put out peaches in a jadeite bowl and the look is complete. Well, almost. The only thing missing is my mother yelling, “Rinse the sand off your feet before you come inside!”
