There’s something very charming and comforting about a rustic and shabby home. Warm colours and textures that envelop the room, and a relaxed atmosphere that leads to better communication and family lifestyles is the ultimate kind of interior design.
An easy way to make your home feel instantly rustic is to add more natural wood – the knottier, the better. Exposing your home’s beams is a sure-fire way to give your home rustic appeal.
Rustic homes can have a traditional layout and therefore windows are small and limited. Darker shades of wood also absorb lots of light. Maximise the light in your home by using muted and pastel colour palettes.
To make your rustic home even more comfortable and welcoming, make sure you incorporate lots of softer textures in the room. Wool, cotton, and linens work well and add a softer touch and deeper feeling to the home.
