The living room is the right place to relax, rest and enjoy good times with loved ones. And the rustic decoration is one of the best options to evoke this warm and cozy atmosphere. If you have chosen to set up a rustic room but are unsure how to do it, this post will help you with tips and lots of inspiration.
The first thing is to understand the concept of rustic decor. The environments with this theme appreciate natural elements, simple and without the need for fancy finishes. The most important thing is to bring nature and an uncomplicated lifestyle to the decor.
However, this does not mean that the rustic decor is simplistic and done anyway. On the contrary, it takes a good dose of balance and common sense so that the decoration does not get too exaggerated or too boring.
In addition, one of the biggest trends nowadays is to mix the rustic with the modern, bringing a little of each style to the decoration, with the aim of elevating the environment to a welcoming and comfort, without giving up the technological possibilities.
Check below what can not miss in a rustic room decoration
The wood is at the top of the list when talking about rustic decor and can not miss. In the living room, the wood can be on the floor, on a beautiful and cozy floor or apparent in the roof rafters. Another way to introduce the material in the decoration is in the furniture (we will speak of this important detail soon more). Wooden luminaires are also a great option to enhance the rustic style.
It is worth remembering that the more natural the state of wood, the more rustic it will look. That is, a tree trunk functioning as a table is much more rustic than a table made with a treated, sanded and polished wood. In one way or another, the wood continues to imprint this rustic aspect to the environment, but it is up to you to determine whether this rustic will be chic, classic or stripped.
2. Natural elements
Besides wood, it is also very common to use other natural elements in the rustic decoration like stones, ceramics, straw and natural fibers. The stones can be used to coat a wall, while pottery and other elements can appear on some object.
Another element that stands out in the rustic decoration are the brick. They are super high on the decor and you can coat some walls with it. If you want to create a more rustic effect, leave them in the natural color. For a cleaner and more delicate environment, paint them in white.
There is no way to talk about rustic decor without talking about plants. They need to be present, even in a small pot on the coffee table. You can also use a vase with dried flowers. It's a charm!
5. Earthy tones
The earth tones palette is preferred for rustic decoration, on walls as well as in furniture and decorative objects. So abuse the shades of beige and brown. To create contrast dots, choose warm colors like yellow, orange, and red. For a more modern decoration, mix the earthy tones with white, black, gray and blue.
Demolition furniture or antiques
The demolition furniture, old or with effect patina are in high and are warmly welcomed in the rustic decoration. Just be careful not to leave the decor hanging around too much. One tip is to blend this type of furniture with some smaller furniture from straight and contemporary lines, or even on other material such as metal and glass.
Lighting is a joker to make the environment cozier. In this case, in addition to the main lighting, opt for indirect lighting a little more yellowish to create that warm atmosphere inside the environment.
Attention when choosing fixtures. When in doubt, opt for wood . But you do not have to stick to them. Luminaires made from natural fibers, such as straw or even fabric, look great in this decoration proposal. To give a modern touch to rustic lighting, prefer luminaires that mix wood and glass or wood and metal, for example.
A rustic room needs to be comfortable. So invest in a soft rug, a cozy sofa, and not just beautiful but comfortable seating. Remember that the ultimate goal of a rustic decor is to create a welcoming and welcoming atmosphere.
Objects of rustic decoration
The decoration objects ideal for a rustic decoration are those that refer to natural elements and handcrafted processes, which demonstrate a greater intimacy with the piece. In this case, crochet covers and pots of ceramics are a good request. But you can go further by betting on other objects that have this relationship of affection, such as pictures and family relics, for example.
You do not need to use all of the items mentioned above to compose the rustic room decor. Choose the ones that most closely match your style and the style of your home. Remember that the key words for this type of decoration are moderation and common sense.
