Do you daydream about frolicking through fields of wildflowers on your way to go strawberry picking in the orchard next to your cottage? Like old-fashioned things more than new pieces? If you answered yes, your style is probably rustic, and it’s making a big comeback these days. Here are a few of our fav tips that will have your home looking like a cozy rustic getaway in no time!
-Think living in a big city means you can’t have a rustic home? Wrong. You can get the look in any space- just focus on highlighting elements such as hardwood floors and fireplaces. They’ll instantly give your home a rustic look, especially if left unpolished!
-Does your home look a little mismatched? Good, because rustic style wasn’t made to look polished! Make use of what you already have. Found objects, antique accessories, & old mason jars all add a rustic touch to your home. We love styling our Found Olive Buckets with lemons for a fresh look- be creative!
-Keep the color palette warm. Rustic style conveys coziness, so stick with lighter shades of wood paired with accessories in a warm color, such as red or yellow, or cooler colors like blue. We love our rustic Victoria Sofa (pictured above) paired with light wood accent pieces, like our Lakeview Cocktail Table.
-Add natural elements. Open your windows and let some sunshine in. While you’re at it, pretend you picked sunflowers in a field and add our Sunflower Floral to your kitchen table (we’ll never tell it was just a daydream!).
Does your space have a rustic feel? How did you get the look?
