A good book about country style but UK readers should be aware that it's published by the US version of Country Living magazine, not the UK version, and this is an American book. Therefore, 'country' means styles like Shaker rather than the English Country Cottage style many of us might be thinking of. Also, it very much assumes that you don't actually live in the countryside yourself, but want to create the country look in a town property. That said, it then gives lots of hints and tips about how to do just that with colour, furniture types and accessories, and the photographs are delightful. The slightly didactic tone is a little irritating.

County Chic really is a joy to read. The book contains beautifully photographed images featuring an array of original interior ideas. The styles featured could quite easily be interpreted into a city or country home. The book offers the reader a refreshing and inspirational insight into modern country decor. I highly recommend the book to readers who love simple country style mixed with modern amenities.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has aged well! 9 Feb. 2014
By Vic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was published in 2001...I found a mention of it in Jan. 2014 while looking at comments on a more recent publication and decided to see if it was available used for a good price. Found it and purchased from amazon mktplace for the price of one issue of a decorating magazine. So glad I did b/c this is really a nice book. Although it purports to be country style, I think it reflects more eclectic decorating at its best. I liked the range of styles, esp the ethnic and bazaar styles, actually every section had something that appealed to me. Mainly this book encourages readers to explore their own style and interests in decorating their homes, an approach I strongly embrace, rather than purchasing one's home furnishings lock stock and barrel from your local furniture showroom. It is nice to come across a design book that has withstood the test of time and remains relevant 13 years in.
5.0 out of 5 stars Nice book filled with great ideas. Great for a coffee table book. 30 Mar. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Filled with ideas that are fairly plain, not frilly. Looks to be done in more 2nd-hand, bargain, auction-finds type décor. Nothing fancy. Has chapters with Shaker, New England and modern Ethnic styles. I was looking for more the farmhouse look and shabby/chic which it doesn't seem to be much of styles as I would have liked. Therefore, it may not be as practical for me but still a nice coffee table book.
5.0 out of 5 stars My friend loves this gift 16 Feb. 2012

My friend splurged for me at Christmas so I sent this book as thanks. She loved it. She keeps a lovely home and the photos of Country Chic appealed to her. She even had an interior designer friend over perusing the book one afternoon over tea. My friend said she had to keep an eye on the book lest her designer friend, who loved it too, abscond with it! A good buy.
