What are country and provence?
These two styles of decoration of the premises have a lot in common. It will be more correct to note that they have only a few differences. "Country" in translation means "rustic", and therefore the style itself has a wider scope. This is the style of many localities, it can be Russian, English, American, etc. Provence is exclusively French country style.
And in one and the other style only natural materials are used. Their difference from other areas in the design of the premises - aged surfaces, rough decor elements, natural shades, the absence of fancy furniture and textiles, forged parts. If it's a kitchen, then almost all the kitchen utensils are displayed, and everything must be present in everything.
In the country both for finishing the surfaces of walls, and in decor elements, different colors are used, among which there are dark and mottled tones. Provence is distinguished by a light and calm style. Furniture of dark color and bright decor is absolutely uncharacteristic for this style. The dominant colors are white and pastel shades. Accents can be made with accessories and textiles on a tone or two darker.

Country is more suitable for the design of country houses and suburban areas, the windows of which look to the south or south-east side. Premises decorated in country, requires a lot of natural light. Furniture of natural shades, a massive armchair or sofas and all forged decor elements will look rather gloomy in a room with insufficient lighting.
In urban apartments, a workplace or a country-style office, a kitchen and even a bedroom will look good, but in no case should it be used in a children's room.
And if country is a lot of decor and furniture, then Provence is a restrained style with a low-key interior design and a minimum of decorative elements.
For the design of the walls in the style of Provence used cold shades. In the interior of the rooms refined antique furniture, wicker chair or couch and a minimum of unobtrusive decor.
For the covering of country floors, boards are used, as well as ceramic tiles imitating natural stone. The walls are decorated with masonry, textile wallpaper or wood panels.
