Rustic Interiors – A Style Statement for Interior Design

The interior design of your home comes down to your individual taste. What’s so good about rustic styling is there are so many charming and timeless interior style choices;  natural, casual, rough, aged and the perfect combination of functional, practical and fuss-free design.

Current trends are focusing more on returning to nature; hence, rustic interiors are making a comeback. We are confident that you will find the modern rustic look in your home to be a source of comfort and delight.

What sets this styling apart is that it can be incorporated into your living space in many ways. Through paint choices, signature furniture pieces & décor — there is no end to the choices you can make. Below you will find some simple interior design techniques that  are more effective and popular when achieving that modern rustic look in your home.

Work with Wood

One of the best ways to add a more rustic look to your home is to include more wood. Wooden furnishings, décor, and flooring add a beautiful warmth to a home. Wood represents equal parts of the country and modern aesthetic which make it perfect and easy to work with.

The easiest way to add  wood into your space is to buy one strong rustic piece of furniture like a bed, dining table, buffet, etc and we are definitely spoilt for choice with such a large range of light and darker wood shades at Maroochydore Homemaker Centre. Select the shade that best fits the look you are hoping to achieve and nothing says you can’t change the shade when decorating a different room. Featured product available at  Harvey Norman

Contemporary Copper

Copper and rustic go hand in hand because of the naturally earthy colour the metal has to offer. Adding copper to your home to complement rustic furniture  helps as it brings in a beautiful subtle shine to create an elegant contrast.

You’ll find several copper décor pieces that work perfectly for this purpose, like small vases, planters, stools, bowls, etc. The possibilities are endless! Featured products available at  Pillow Talk

Lively Lighting

One of the most important parts of achieving the right rustic interior look is perfecting the lighting around the house. Because rustic furniture and décor can range from lighter to darker wooden tones, creating more lighting inside the house will bring out all the colours.

This is easier in the day when sunlight through your larger windows can create the desired effect. However, for evenings and night, make sure you have lamps and home lighting that can take over from the sunlight and position them to create ambiance and balance.

  1. The Rustic Interior Look is becoming increasingly popular!

    Rustic interiors will remain a popular trend as it’s really quite easy to incorporate into your home. Wooden furnishings, copper objects and lighting are some of the simplest ways you can achieve the rustic look and other options include baskets and faux plants.

    Baskets are both an affordable and practical option and based on your design preference can be a single piece or multiple baskets of varying sizes.

    Faux plants are also a great way to achieve the rustic look and are again, both an affordable and practical option. You can get more ideas for the indoor styling of faux plants in this recent blog post.

    Another great option is the use of reclaimed wood for flooring, bench tops and furniture. Most reclaimed wood comes from timbers and decking rescued from old homes, factories and warehouses so you can be assured of uniqueness. If on a budget, there are some excellent cheaper options for flooring such as laminate that features the ‘reclaimed’ look. Wood panelling will also provide a hint of luxury.
