    I’m leaning towards Canada (Hudson’s Bay Blanket… faux taxidermy)… but then again… there are definitely some British elements in there too. Is that the same, or different? 😉

    I don’t think I could pick one country that I decorate my home like. Maybe it’s like a combination of Canada/US, Scandinavia and England. Homey with warm colors, furniture from lots of different decades and lots of different textures. That’s the best way I can describe it. lol =)
