Style School – Rustic
Houzz states, “Rustic style proves the old adage that everything comes full circle. Our pioneer ancestors would get a good laugh out of how fashionable the look is today — they probably dreamed of plastered walls instead of rough logs and carpets instead of bare plank floors. But thanks to rustic style’s unpretentious roots, organic textures and shapes, and natural warmth, it’s become as popular in the heart of the city as it is out in the woods.”
Rustic Design is defined by a wide array of design elements and styles, including French Country, Modern Rustic, Tuscan, Cottage, Coastal, and Lodge, just to name a few! While these varying subcategories differ from one type to the next, they all posses many shared elements. Check out the following key elements of rustic design and get inspired!
