Everything You Need To Know About Creating a Cozy, Rustic Home
Rustic home design can sometimes get the short end of the stick. On the one hand, we think of cozy fireplaces, warm natural wood, and sturdy furniture pieces. On the other hand, many people assume to have a rustic home design, you’ve got to live in a log cabin, decorate with animal antlers, and live at least 100 miles from the nearest city, right? Wrong! We’re here to guide you and show you that rustic-styled home design is so much more accessible than what you may have thought before.
Understanding Rustic Design
Rustic furniture is usually characterized by natural materials, rough textures, and casual comfort. Think wood grain details, linen sofas, stone accents, leather chairs, and other earthy, organic elements. The idea of rustic design is to bring the outdoors inside but in a comfortable fashion. One of the most striking details of rustic styling is what's missing. You won’t find plastics, synthetic materials, or funky geometric shapes in rustic homes. Rustic furniture highlights the handmade appeal of oversized pieces for ultimate comfort with simple, dependable furniture design. These pieces are one-of-a-kind unique and help create a home that is anything but cookie-cutter.
Styling Your Casual Rustic Retreat
Now that you know what textures, materials, and characteristics to keep an eye out for, lets start decorating! Warm, cozy furniture pieces are just a click away. Remember that as you browse, you’ll want to stay with an earth-toned color palette such as browns, greens, and grays. We imagine a living room design would start with a large comfortable leather sofa accented by natural wood end tables. Tie the room together with a neutral woven rug.
In your dining room, look for a rustic dining table with strong legs and lots of natural wood details. This would be a fun chance to mix materials with the dining chairs! Try blending upholstery and natural wood with a great leather or linen upholstered dining chair. This would also be a great chance to add contrasting wood in a lighter or darker shade through a unique buffet cabinet.
