Rustic contemporary style usually gives a modern yet warm feeling to your space. Using natural elements such as barn board, planks, or exposed rough lumber, will give things a natural and interesting look that almost tells a story. This newly popular style embraces nature-inspired textures and simple earthy colors but presents them in a very clean and slick way.
Contemporary-Rustic has been trending everywhere over the last few years and it doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. Although steel is brought into the design as well, “rustic” doesn’t mean “rustyyyy”. Wood is a gorgeous component of rustic decor, yet would seem pretty dark and heavy if not balanced out with some bright colours or natural light. Light whites, creams, and greys work well for furniture and wall colours they are a necessity for lightening things up.
Used, worn, and primitive pieces are often primary accessories in a rustic styled home. Consider vintage wooden crates and barrels, wicker baskets, and old chests for not only storage but great rustic decor.
Refinishing old furniture is the way to go! If you want to add some colour into your design, finish an old wooden end table or a mirror by giving it that antique or weathered look and use the colour that will make your design pop!
Since I'm a big believer that photos and video are now a big part of showcasing homes in their best light, I figured I would post a photo a day, give or take.
