"'Modern Country Style' is a label that you are going to see and hear a lot about next year," says Lynda Reeves, H&H publisher and host of House & Home Television. "What's really going on in home design is two things: A need for enduring style (no more fashion forward trends that date overnight — too expensive and too wasteful), and a desire for rooms that are casual but still elegant."

That was just one of the points Lynda made this morning in an interview that covered paint and wall trends, new flooring ideas and neutral colour schemes. You can read the entire transcript here. And to see the a perfect example of Modern Country Style, visit the Princess Margaret Welcome Home Sweepstakes Showhome in Oakville, Ontario or watch the first two video tours of that space. And stay tuned: more room tours of the showhouse will be posted each week.

Now, your turn. What do you think of the showhouse and this style?
