Whilst traditionally rustic style maybe heavy and dark, contemporary rustic style feels fresh and light, whist still being firmly grounded. Rustic style is all about creating inviting, lived-in and warm spaces in your home. A rustic interior aims to bring a sense of the outdoors in, and focuses on the beauty of natural materials, especially wood.
A modern rustic home has an open floor plan, preserved and exposed natural architectural features and a simple colour scheme with large windows to bring the outdoors in. Modern rustic style has an informal elegance and is best of both comfortable and contemporary living.
Well-chosen pieces of rustic furniture will add warmth and a more organic feel to any room, and are essential for creating a truly rustic interior.

Follow a few simple rules to get a rustic look in your home:
Avoid painted furniture and painting over exposed beams, brickwork, flooring and any other natural surfaces or features in your home. Rustic interiors is all about showcasing the simple beauty of these materials, so don’t cover them up!
Choose natural and sturdy fabrics such as wool, cotton and linen for the draperies. Avoid dainty patterns, and go for strong and streamlined ones like Pendleton, modern quilts and gingham.
Choose furniture with surfaces that either show their age or fake it well. When buying new furniture, choose pieces made from reclaimed wood or wood-types with prominent grain patterning.
The rustic palette is mostly made up from organic and earthy tones pulled from the ground. Keep walls light to avoid your home looking too dark and keep it modern with splashes of brighter colours such as denim blue, red and faded turquoise.
