Do you love country style homes? If you want a rustic style home, it can be hard figuring out where to start. This style is popular and can be seen on a lot of interior design blogs, websites and magazines. When looking at those sources of inspiration you may feel overwhelmed because you see the big picture and don’t know much about the individual parts in designing your home to get that rustic feeling. So, here is a guide breaking down for you how to incorporate that rustic style in your home by focusing on specific home design aspects.
Color is a huge part of any home, especially a home that’s trying to achieve a specific style. Rustic style homes are supposed to reflect country life surrounded by nature and color is important in incorporating this style.
The colors that reflect rustic styles are, green, brown, gray, rust and all their shades. The colors should be earthy, neutral and natural, colors you’d see in nature.
When you think of rustic, the first thing that pops into your head is wood. If you’re incorporating this style, wood is not optional, so get a lot of wooden furniture. Your home should also have wood floors. You can decide on the type of wood, it can be light like oak, dark like mahogany, possibly cherry and maybe even maple.
Everything in your house doesn’t have to be wood. If you feel like there is too much wood in your home, you can ease the look of it by incorporating rugs, sofas, tablecloths, curtains etc. in the colors mentioned in the previous section.
You should also add decorative items to your home, which will also help offset the impact of the wood. You can incorporate animal accents, like paws, statues of bears, antlers and other woodsy animals. You can include patchwork quilts, antique clocks, rocking chairs and candles.
