The modern-rustic style is a contradiction of sleekness and warmth because it comprises of the clean lines of a modernist look coupled with the warm, cozy ambiance of a rustic ambiance. Both aspects can be challenging to derivate in a single space, but if you really want to emulate this style in your homes, here are 5 clever ways that you can do so:
1. Paint vs. wood
The paint versus wood phenomenon that has been painted in this living room is exactly what you need while blending two very prominent styles in one space. While the simplicity of the painted wall represents the clean aesthetic of a modern look, the textured warmth of the other wall represents the coziness of the rustic style. Both complement and balance each other perfectly.
2. A hybrid furniture style
The furniture used in a modern-rustic setting is always a fine blend of both aesthetics. These days, you can easily find sleek wooden concoctions in the market that deliver the best of both modern and rustic visuals by combining sleek lines with a wooden texture. The media console featured in this image is one such example that you can use as an example while searching for such pieces.
3. A paragon of coziness
The rustic style is known of being incredibly cozy and inviting while the modern style is known for its unfettered style and trendiness. You have to inspire the best of both worlds in a single space to achieve such visuals. The plush leather sofa in its welcoming brown upholstery sets off the rustic look really well in this living room, while the fashionable accessories deliver the best of modern.
4. Balancing the décor
You have to be extremely careful while decorating a modern-rustic home because it can be tricky to find the right accessories and trinkets to do so. However, the cluster of mismatched artwork and frames featured in this image showcase just how you can combine the two styles with varying visuals to deliver an attractive set-up.
5. Balancing warmth vs. austere
Warmth vs. austere looks are the core aspects of a modern-rustic look and this kitchen interior design showcases how to balance them perfectly. The richness of the wood textured backsplash enhanced by the warm under-cabinet lighting articulates a beautiful contrast with the white cabinet laminates all around. You can use this combination in your own smart ways as well.
