A Rustic Style Guide to Furniture & Décor
Are you getting the itch to give your home a new look? Spruce up your space with a Rustic Cottage style. This look is unique because it incorporates soft inviting pieces paired with weathered vintage accessories. The cottage aspects of the room will give you the cozy and carefree space you are looking forward to relaxing in while the rustic details paint the room with timeless charm. The Rustic Cottage look incorporates different finishes and styles into one ornately decorated space.
There are several things to consider when you begin your search for the perfect rustic cottage style pieces for your space. If you want to maintain the naturally light and airy feel this style brings to your home, it is important to ensure that large furniture pieces fall under the neutral color palette. When selecting tables and chairs, remember that different finishes and textures give this style its appeal. Don’t shy away from pieces that are hand painted or have intricate wood detailing.
Once you have picked out your large furniture pieces, it’s time to accessorize! When selecting accessories for your space, choose pieces that provide visual depth and character to the room. Adding a large clock to a wall, wicker baskets for your blankets and unique accent pieces to your coffee table polish the rustic cottage look of the room.
One of the ways you can incorporate the rustic cottage style into many different rooms is by using a limited palette of soft and neutral colors to help your remaining areas also transition into a tranquil and relaxing place. Magnolia Home’s Farmhouse Collection has some great pieces that match this style. Congruent colors are a perfect way to pull together multiple rooms and give your home a completed look. Utilizing a neutral palette as a base in each space and swapping out pops of color and texture is a great way to pull things together without over-repetition.
Remember, not everything that goes into sprucing up your place has to be modern and up to date. Embrace your creativity and move old items around with the new!
