Rustic Living Room Design Ideas

A living room is just that; a space where we live! It’s used for a multitude of needs, from TV watching, family game nights, gathering of friends, solo reading afternoons and everything in between. This means a living room needs to be both beautiful and functional. A sofa should be both something you enjoy looking at, and something you enjoy cuddling up in on a cold day! For those reasons, we can’t think of a cozier style than Rustic. You may have a preconceived notion of what rustic living room design looks like when you hear it. Many people picture it to be shabby chic or even log cabin style, and while rustic embodies both those styles, it’s not limited to that in any capacity. Rustic interior design shows an emphasis on natural beauty and a bit of ruggedness. This can be seen in wood furniture that isn’t overly finished or ornate, and fabrics that are naturally derived like cotton and jute. You can really personalize a rustic living room to be on any spectrum you are drawn too, but understanding the principles of this design style is a helpful place to start! Rustic design has grown in popularity in the last decade thanks to Joanna Gaines and a growing movement of homier and cozier spaces. If you are gathering rustic living room design ideas, you can find anything from Modern Farmhouse to Industrial Rustic...and everything in between! Rustic Living Room ideas are also very popular with families with kids and pets, as rustic furniture is often durable and comfortable. You will find deep sofas, comfy armchairs, ambient lighting and homey touches that make coming home feel like a warm hug! When it comes to rustic living room layout, it depends on the function and shape of your particular living room. Creating a space that fosters comfortable living, a place to gather, and something that works with the flow of your home is key. Is a rustic living room design right for you? If you are drawn to earthy or neutral tones, nature inspired textures, unpretentious interiors and a peaceful feeling, then yes! A Rustic living room could be the right choice for you! We’ve compiled our favorite rustic living room design inspiration for you to start your design journey, so please, enjoy!

Monica & Chandler's Apartment

Monica & Chandler's Apartment

When we last saw them, Monica and Chandler were happily married and raising their adopted twins, Jack and Erica. But what if they hadn’t decided to move out of the city? Would their apartment still sport those purple walls and eclectic mix of furnishings? If we had to guess, Monica and Chandler would have kept the original style of the place, but given it an upgrade.

This living room is what Modern Farmhouse dreams are made of. The seating arrangement, with two stunning white sofas flanking the fireplace, creates drama and a true wow factor!

Bad to the Boho Bone

Boho style doesn't always have to be light and airy. The style can have a hip moody vibe as well. If you'd like to add a little edge to your boho space, all you have to do is pair some darker colors with rustic boho trademarks. In this design, dark walls pair with cozy faux-fur rugs, woven pieces, and a tapestry for a look that's as boho-chic and edgy-cool as a fringe motorcycle jacket.

To create a space that feels super cohesive, try pairing furniture and wall art that reflect one another in shape and form. In this image, a circular end table with verticle lines has abstract art with circles made of verticle lines above it. The shape of the camel-colored armchair is reminiscent of the shape in the picture behind it, and the colors of the room accessories match those of the small abstract images. The overall effect feels organized, harmonious, and charming.
