The advantage of having a home decorated with rustic, unusual and original objects can give you an unparalleled pleasure, giving you a cozy feeling and the enthusiasm of feeling even more at home, preserving part of the history in every detail. The rustic-style decoration offers a set full of life, full of history and impregnated natural beauty.

On vacation, rustic environments are the most sought after, since they mark a break with urban life.

Rustic style furniture and decoration

Good advice for rustic style decoration is to choose wood as the main material , since it has unique properties of stability, durability, color, elasticity, and permanence.

rustic wooden furniture can be painted to enhance its rustic appearance, and this based on natural or soft colors. It can also be aged to give the impression that it is a piece of furniture inherited after several generations, which gives a much more real look to our rustic-style decoration .

Colors in the rustic style

The most frequent colors for tables and chairs in the rustic style are generally green, blue, and light blue , among others. If the ceiling in the living room is high, wooden beams can be installed to give the impression that the ceiling is lower. You can also use furniture based on wool fabrics, to complete the wooden objects that can be included in the rustic style decoration.

The fireplace is of course an indispensable complement. Thanks to it, you can create spaces for rest, conversation, and welcoming. Accompany these charming corners with sofas lined with colors. All the rustic accessories that you add must have a certain relationship with nature or the forest.

But do not overload it too much, and avoid placing decorative objects that are only made of wood, since the impression could be too “natural”, dark, and in the end you will not feel comfortable and you will not really get a rustic style decoration.

The decoration on walls and floors

The walls can be made of light stone, with some vertical wooden bars based on oak, pine, ebony. If you can’t install stone, opt for pastel paints, such as apple green, blue, or more garish colors like burgundy red, or almond green. For a rustic design that also contains a simple nature, you can use pictures or wooden cabinets that emulate this style.

The floor can be made of baked earth, or stoneware, to give more warmth to the entrance of the house, and unite access to nearby rooms such as the bathroom or kitchen. You can place a rustic rug based on natural fibers and ethnic prints, but above all that has natural or neutral colors.

A rustic style is not something innovative, but a return to the fundamental principles of traditional life. These rustic interior photos can help you introduce a new way of life and for little money. It is enough to take some imagination to turn the home into a warmer and more welcoming place.
