Do you dream about it? We know we do. 

An idyllic country house

A little bit rustic, 

Cozy and charming with all the trappings of quiet country living. 

For those of us who don’t have a country house, a fabulous place to spend the weekends in their comfy jeans and cozy flannel, Nora Murphy has a solution. 

Her new book, Nora Murphy’s Country House Style, with photos by Duane Simon Photography, is the next best thing to having a country house all your own. 

Each page is overflowing with inspiration that feels like a day in the country

So whether you live in a small town, a big city, or somewhere in between, you can visit your favorite country home any time you like. 

And if you happen to purchase a little out of the way space for whiling away weekends far from the fast pace of life and the whirlwind of jobs and commitments, you’ll have all the inspiration you need!

This week, curl up with Nora Murphy’s Country House Style for plenty of tips on making your house a country home–or creating the country house of your dreams if you’re lucky enough to have one!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!
