Rustic Bathroom

Rustic Design Ideas: There is a wide variety of rustic interior design styles as well as a distinct diversity in the many approaches one can take to achieve a rustic feel to any given space. The trend this year leans closely toward rustic utilitarian, with a surge of interest towards clean lines, natural materials, and pared-down decor.

If you are looking to add a subtle rustic influence into your home, rustic accessories do work well incorporated into a contemporary design. The new rustic provides for a fresh interpretation with the pairing of reclaimed wood and natural elements with existing modern pieces. By pairing an eclectic mix of textured fabrics and materials with a sophisticated color palette, a beautifully designed rustic room can be achieved with minimal effort.

Rough-hewn beams are a great way of displaying natural wood if the space is decorated with traditional or contemporary pieces. Not only do the beams provide contrast, but they help define a space architecturally. Alternatively, beams can be used to surround fireplaces, line walls, or frame windows and ceilings.

Traditional rustic design places emphasis on handcrafted, rough-hewn wood, metalwork, handcrafted furnishings, and natural fabrics. Architectural elements also include river rock and wood floors. Pine is a popular choice for walls, flooring, and furniture. Whether your style is contemporary, traditional, eclectic, masculine, or feminine, every home can incorporate a touch of rustic décor with ease. Browsing through the following images is a great way to start collecting ideas for design inspiration.
