Rustic Design Ideas

Rustic style is one of the most popular design styles, and for good reason! It combines classically beautiful design element like warm wood tones and beautifully soft upholstery with homey and durable touches. This style is not only a popular choice among those who crave a familiar look, but also with those who like to push the style envelope. Rustic style design covers many bases, and without doubt is versatile and here to stay!  Rustic style can blend with other styles almost effortlessly. It can lean more traditional in sense with darker woods, a heavier aesthetic and nature-inspired decor. It also can lean more modern, with furniture and decor reminiscent of farmhouse decor in an elevated and updated approach. Due to the durability of this style, it’s a popular choice in busy households with children and pets!  With natural fiber rugs, like seagrass and jute and wool, nature is proud indoors in a refined way. Classically, rustic style interiors tend to be more neutral, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Where there may be a neutral base with leather sofa, upholstered chairs and wooden furniture, color and personality come into play in many ways. A vibrant gallery wall or burst of lush texture with house plants can bring life to a rustic style space. Of course, Earth tones are popular in Rustic style design. From beautiful mossy greens to terracotta reds, an array of colors can be used when decorating your Rustic style home.  Rustic design is inspired by nature, and like nature, feels welcoming and inviting. This means furniture that isn’t too formal or pretentious, but rather something that feels homey and somewhat organic. The use of stone and wood in their raw and unfriend state is a prevelent element in furniture. This doesn’t mean the space will look like a log cabin, but it will include these elements and materials in a stylish and tasteful way. Textures, textiles and patterns are very important elements in Rustic style design! With the palette being mostly neutral colors, texture and patterns bring much dimension and vibrancy to this style. Faux fur, hide rugs, and layered pillows are stylish choices in this style. Layering rugs adds a cozy effect to any rustic space, as does hanging tapestries and choosing throw blankets with patterns. Patterns are typically nature-inspired, mud-cloth, shibori or a beautiful organic woven texture.  Rustic style has so many layers, there isn’t enough words to sum up the depth and beauty of this design style. We hope you enjoy our incredible collection of Rustic style design ideas and gain some inspiration for your own rustic design journey!

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.
