Fill Your Living Room With Plants
Yes, your house in the town is surrounded by nature, but taking it indoors will not only help you to refresh and purify the environment, but it will also decorate and enhance that country and natural point that your country house has. You can use large plants, such as the bird of paradise or Strelitzia, but also palm trees, monsteras (so fashionable), or small plants, such as ferns or pothos. The important thing is that they are resistant species that hold up well all year round with minimal care.
Fall In Love With Hydraulics
Nothing decorates a townhouse better than hydraulic tiles, reminiscent of old country houses. Its colorful and beautiful patterns are ideal for decorating the kitchen. And the best thing is that, now, there are several materials that imitate them very faithfully. Vinyl tiles are an inexpensive option that will give you incredible results.

Wallpaper, Yes, But Floral!
Because a townhouse asks for that little country point that is so cozy and warm. For this reason, avoid the most modern patterns, such as geometric ones, and, for the dining area or the kitchen, for example, go for floral wallpapers and warm colors, like the one that decorates this office.
And In The Bedroom!
Although here we recommend that you change those warm tones for colder ones, such as blue. And it is that these shades invite rest and relaxation. With a wallpaper with blue flowers, like the one that decorates this room, you will feel that you are in the French countryside and with the minimum investment.
A New Life For Old Doors

Paint them a vibrant color or restore the natural state of the wood by sanding them and placing them as a headboard in the room. Depending on the color you choose, the result will be more rustic, more vintage, or more summery, but the investment will be minimal.
Give A Second Life To Your Lattice
If you have changed the exterior blinds, wait before discarding them. One option to give them a second life is to sand them well and paint them the color you like best. Then you will only have to fix it on the wall of the headboard with some plugs and some spikes.
