Rustic decor, timeworn finishes and contrasting contemporary features calls for a warm and comfortable interior that invite you to slow down and relax.
A colour palette of whites and creams is the cornerstone of country rustic design. This base is often contrasted with some soft touches of sage, mint or dusty blues or brighter colours like red and yellow and a mix of stripes, checks, spots and floral patterns.
Vintage or flea-markets pieces with a history are a big part of furnishing modern country homes. You will find plenty of natural unrefined elements such as timber, leather or suder, metals with patina and natural fabrics like cotton, hemp, linen, wool or animal hides in country rustic homes. So, when choosing furniture, opt for a well worn leather sofa, or a wooden dining table bearing the marks of time for that lived-in and through, look.
The key to a modern country rustic look is balance. Think rustic finishes with clean, crisp details. Not only does it need to feel comfortable, it also needs to be comfortable on the eye.
Combine texture like a fluffy woollen rug on rustic wooden floorboards, or plush linen cushions on an old leather couch. Soft lighting options are also another way to create a warm and relaxed atmosphere, and a sense of ambiance
