The Rustic Style features a truly homely aesthetic by featuring timeworn, natural and organic visuals. However, an authentic rustic style can seem a little too overwhelming in times where contemporary is the major attraction. Put your worries aside, as you can see that rustic undertones can be perfectly balance out and mix well with the Contemporary Style. Let’s look at these 5 simple ways if you eager to renovate your home in this way!
1. A relevant material palate
The material palate is always the first thing you should consider while going for rustic undertones in an otherwise modern interior design. It features natural accents and raw finishes, so wood and exposed brick are the best options. Both of these materials have an adequate natural aesthetic that can immediately bring in a rustic style vibe in any interior design.
Of course lighting is a key element when you want to evoke rustic undertones in your interior design. The right lighting can bring out the best of a rustic ambiance. You can use dim gold lighting to highlight the natural materials you used to bring out the rustic side.
3. Contemporary overlays
In order to emphasize the beauty of your rustic tones, it is important to highlight the contemporary parts as well. However, you can make it so that the contemporary parts do have a tinge of rustic to them as well. The black subway tile feature wall is a very nice alternative finish to a decidedly large rustic counterpart. It can definitely showcase the authenticity of the original rustic material selection.
4. Furniture finishes
The furniture is obviously an important part of the rustic style. But it also has to have mild contemporary touches as well. A live edge table is a great furniture option in an interior design where you’re trying to highlight the rustic undertones. You should also pay special attention to the finishes of the furniture. They have to be just the right amount of modern yet rustic to give off the right effect.
5. Natural lighting
Window coverings like heavy curtains and drapes are a big no-no for a subtle rustic style. You can, however use blinds of various variety – preferably roller or roman blinds – to get that fine balance between the rustic and contemporary aesthetics.
