The rustic-traditional style is an unconventional one. It combines richness, heritage, and bit of a quaint vintage aura in a single space and can feel overwhelmingly cluttered if not carried out right. Below, we’ll be sharing 5 inspirations and tips for those who love this style and want to emulate it in their own homes. Let’s take a look:
1. Rugs and furniture
The first thing you can do to emulate the rustic-traditional vibe in your homes is to furnish with the right rug and furniture. If you take a look at this image, you’ll see how the oriental rug and heritage style furniture both work in tandem to deliver a great look. If you feel like it’s too much, then you can even counterbalance with modern/contemporary style surroundings for a sleeker effect.
2. Curtains and artwork
The second thing you can do to emulate the best of rustic-tradition in your ambiance is to choose the right pair of curtains and artwork. The pattern and color of the curtains can be vintage chic – maybe even 90s retro – while the artwork has to complement either the rustic or the traditional aura. Just take the living room in this image as an example for how to do this te best way.
3. Niche accent furniture
Niche accent furniture is also a great way to reinforce the modern traditional look in your homes. For example, the rattan recliner and end table in this image emulate a classic rustic aura, which is enhanced even more by the selection of the curtain fabric. The surrounding décor and accessories make the periphery feel slightly contemporary.
4. Lots of wooden accents
If there’s one common factor between the rustic and traditional aesthetics, it’s the use of wood. But the style is very diverse, so how can you combine it? Easy: choose the simple wooden highlights to represent the rustic style while the furniture can bring in a sense of tradition within the whole look.
5. Emulating modernity
A full-fledged modern traditional vibe can be a little off-putting – especially if you’re a person with contemporary sensibilities. Therefore, you can use sleek modern surfaces and materials to articulate your rustic-traditional look. The dining room in this image is an excellent example.
