What Is Rustic Style?
You might be wondering what makes a style rustic. Like many living room styles, the rustic style has evolved over the years. For many decades, “Rustic” reflected log cabins, paneled wood walls, and leather furniture. Rustic style living rooms may borrow elements from Farmhouse or Shabby Chic, but Rustic is a style all its own.
While these particular elements are still considered to be rustic and popular among some decorators and homeowners, the rustic style has lightened up and expanded a bit.
Letting In More Natural Light
When you’re browsing our Rustic Style Gallery for some ideas and inspiration, you will notice that exposed wood is still a prominent feature but the living rooms are brighter and allow for more natural light.
Rustic living rooms are no longer seen as exclusively as a “man cave” for the Hunter or Fisher Type but rather for the whole family to enjoy and as a cozy gathering place in the home. The rustic style works well in open living room plans or for a small and enclosed living room.
Traditionally, the rustic style has often meant low-lighting and dark colors. While this particular look may be preferable for some homeowners, white, subdued, or light-colored walls complement rustic features.
As you browse the gallery, you may notice that while there are many prominent features reflective of the rustic style, the style itself varies.
Natural elements are a big part of a rustic style living room. Whether you collect botanical prints, have exposed wood beams in your ceiling, or have furniture made out of reclaimed wood or metal, rustic style is reflective of nature and more simple life.
A rustic living room may have a fireplace or wood stove as a focal point rather than a big-screen TV. Rustic living rooms are a place to connect with others or to enjoy quiet time alone, looking out the windows and enjoying the beauty of a sunset or wildlife in the backyard.
