Country Cows

Make your country kitchen udder-ly charming with cow-themed accents. This familar farm animal often brings back childhood memories of Sunday drives or even farm chores we once had to do.

Consider adding a charming cow print (or two) to your living space for an instant country look. In the Mail Pouch Farm Print, artist Craig Hackett illustrates a quiet country farm scene. Black and white cows, familiar creatures to most of us, add a calming, picturesque touch to the print, perhaps reminding us of the pleasant fields back home. Accents like the Cows Cows Cows Pillow can add a humorous touch to your decor. And who doesn't need a little humor these days?

Cows and Farmyard Friends

Cows, sheep, roosters and pigs — these friendly farm animals can join in on the fun to create a cohesive farmhouse look. They seem to belong in country home decor, worked into designs on whimsical curtains, pillows and other accents. An antiqued look and a fresh farm image create an inviting display on a kitchen or breakfast nook wall, while items like durable storage tins offer decorative and functional appeal.

What Works With Cow Prints?

 Cow-themed home accents can range from the primitive or rustic to the pastoral. Coordinate your cow-themed kitchen or dining room with other themes to make the whole room shine.

Pastel is Pastoral: Gradually introduce soft colors into your home decor when decorating with mellow prints such as the Mother's Love Canvas Print. With this kind of print serving as a focal point, you will  want to be careful not to overpower it with bright colors. Lighter colors will keep things feeling fresh and new.

Black, White and Red All Over: Red is a wonderful accent to offset black and white colors. It offers stark contrast and modern appeal, and can take the form of an apple, a cherry or the bright red wattle of a rooster. For more rustic farmhouse animal themes, try deep barn red, as shown in the Life is Better on the Farm Print, above right.

Green as the Grass: Green is another great option for decorating with a black and white cow print scheme, as it offers a natural look. Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year, Greenery, is an excellent choice, but if you are looking to tone things down a bit, go for muted dark green colors. See the Storm Coming Print above for an example of this look.
