Rustic modern decorating has formed into a style in its own right. Modern rustic decor instantly adds a contemporary feel to a space, with its natural inspired textures, organic warmth, and earthy colors. Use weathered and refined furnishings and fixtures to create your modern rustic space as well as including items that are honed, hammered and distressed. The modern rustic approach works best when presented in minimalistic arrangements and lends itself well to open floor plans with preserved and exposed natural architectural elements.
An important feature of a modern rustic home is to bring nature inside. Be sure to include elements of wood and stone and natural fabrics carried through to upholstery, rugs, and linens. Throw pillows instantly add natural appeal in jute, sheepskin, sisal or hides. Modern rustic decorating celebrates natural elements and marries the casual warmth and comfort of rustic style with the clean and fresh look of contemporary décor. Achieve a modern rustic approach by incorporating a few eclectic items such as bold kilim patterns, natural wood finishes, dark leather chairs, reclaimed furniture, and ottomans.
