What is modern rustic design?

Modern rustic design combines old-world elements with contemporary and works best when presented in minimalist arrangements. This style seeks to combine the warmth and charm of a rustic home with the style and convenience of a modern dwelling.

Modern rustic style embraces rustic charm and warmth with modern amenities. The key to a modern rustic space is an open floor plan, wood flooring, clean lines, modern furniture, plenty of texture, and preserved and exposed natural architectural elements. This style of design also showcases the beauty of subdued hues and informal elegance.

A modern rustic home exudes a warm and welcoming ambiance.  The best way to achieve this is by adding layers of texture, such as wool throws, woven pillows and jute rugs that balance out the modern aesthetic and keep the space feeling cozy. Integrating soft textures plays a large role in what makes modern rustic style work.

Modern rustic is by nature a family-friendly style where comfort is key, and furniture should be modern, oversized and comfortable. Seating arrangements should be organized to facilitate conversations and large family gatherings.

Elements of Modern Rustic Design

Neutral Palette – Start off with neutral tones to compliment rustic wall décor.  The color scheme embraces natural earth tone colors, as well as elements such as wood and stone.

Rough-Hewn Beams – Rough-hewn beams instantly add rustic charm. They work to help define a space architecturally as well as anchor a rustic design. Wood beams can be used to frame ceilings, delineate doorways as well as surround fireplaces and windows.

Organic Forms – Organic elements in the home help create a calm and peaceful environment. Choose materials that resonate with your own personal style that will help you connect to your interior. Whether it’s natural rock, wood, cotton, leather, or seagrass, these items connect us to the great outdoors.

Weathered Materials – Wood is a primary element used in the design and decorating of rustic homes. Wood surfaces should show a bit of age. Reclaimed wood, hammered and distressed metals, and seeded glass convey a sense of history. Reclaimed wood also is an ideal choice as it provides an earthy and natural look.

Textural Fabrics – Sturdy fabrics with plenty of added texture are on point in a rustic home. From burlap to cotton, linen, and wool, all go a long way in creating a warm, inviting, and cozy home. Quilts are a natural partner for rustic-style interiors, whether they are draped over the edge of a sofa or at the end of a bed.

This stunning ranch style house is perched high on a hilltop and nestled among the trees claiming its rightful place on a scenic 200-acre property in Texas.

Heavy timber columns and stone walls ground the home to the site. Reclaimed siding and simple barn-like structures give the architecture a sense of history and regional belonging. Referencing the owner’s love of the old west, many of the interior walls showcase the same stone and wood that is on the exterior of the home. This gesture alludes to a time when materials were not mass produced but simply gathered from the area and formed as needed.

Kitchen cabinets come in a wide variety of colors, with white being one of the most popular choices. One of the main benefits of white kitchens is that they never go out of style, they coordinate with everything and create natural light reflection. White kitchen cabinets are timeless and the perfect choice for those who want to create a blank canvas and plant to add interest with flooring, window treatments, artwork, and area rugs. White cabinets can instantly brighten a kitchen and provide the illusion of more space. To avoid creating a kitchen that feels cold, consider adding a splash of color or texture, and mixing white cabinets with contrasting countertops or backsplashes.
