Rustic Is In & It's Hot
Rustic decor has taken many forms over the years, ranging from rough hewn wood (think weathered fence pickets) to the shabby-chic of Old World French Provincial or or charm of Tuscany. Many people enjoy the appeal of rustic, primitive or vintage styles. These often present gently worn edges, warm patinas, or an overall vintage feel. The good news is that it can be a distinctive, tasteful style for a lot of homes, or just a single room, and the choices today are fantastic. And recent trends show that tremendous interest is only growing and becoming even more popular.
Designers have embraced rustic and vintage designs, with delightful selections in accents, wall hangings, and light fixtures. These new pieces have such an authentic look and feel, they bring a charm to a space that is hard to match. The tendency towards warm, soothing earth tones also lends a great touch.
A rustic touch can also embrace natural materials, ranging from fibers in rugs and furnishings to using beautiful, natural elements to decorate and enhance a variety of spaces. Branches, bundles of herbs and dried flowers, pieces of driftwood, seashells, antlers, nuts and dried leaves... the possibilities are truly endless.
