Rustic style offers the ideal mix of comforting, unfussy design and functional, practical décor. This combination creates a warm and welcoming interior. Natural materials such as oak beams and wood flooring, and comfortable furnishings are the foundation of this style and create a beautiful cozy home with a relaxed and organic vibe.
Key elements of rustic décor include:
Wood – ceiling beams, flooring, and furniture. Using furniture pieces that are distressed, weathered, or made of mixed materials is in keeping with the style.
Texture – natural materials add a lot of texture, which means noticeable wood grain, rugs made of natural fibers, and raw stone treatments on walls.
Heavy – this applies primarily to furniture, think big farmhouse tables and deep, dark leather couches.
Colors – the color palette is neutral, so grays, browns, and creams with warm hues are best for this look. Touches of black can anchor the room, and subtle colors add to the style’s cozy appeal.
When it comes to lighting in rustic décor, lighting can add a touch of elegance to the room, supporting the warm, organic nature of the style. Whether a chandelier, pendant or linear suspension light, the right lighting strengthens a home’s cozy, casual, relaxed vibe.
