Creating a Modern Rustic Interior

If you’re looking for an interior style with modern touches that seamlessly blend with natural elements, consider the Modern Rustic look. Incorporating this look in your home will give you the flexibility to use whatever modern decor you desire against a backdrop of natural colors and materials that will pay homage to the beauty of the outdoors. Using these natural elements throughout your living space will give it flow and provide a welcome and relaxing feeling to you and your guests.


When it comes to your color palette, keep it simple. Soft whites, neutral tones, and colors you can see outdoors are all welcome. Leave behind busy patterns and shocking colors. Your space needs to feel soft and clean to really showcase the natural materials you are going to use in the space. Feel free to bring nature itself indoors. Potted plants, a little herb garden above the sink and fresh flowers on your table are all nice touches.


When it comes to decor and architecture, think of exposed beams, wide unobstructed windows, reclaimed wood and natural stone elements. If your home has a special feature such as an exposed brick wall, make it a focal point in the room. Resurface the fireplace with a stone or reclaimed wood facade if it doesn’t blend in with your home’s new look. Make sure that windows can give you a wonderful view of your outside scenery while providing an abundance of natural light.


Hardwood and natural stone floors are also great features for creating a Modern Rustic look. Use plush textures to add warmth to them. Faux animal hide rugs can add a nice touch. In lieu of a standard fireplace, a wood burning stove would help bring this style to life. Use reclaimed wood for shelving or even a headboard for the master bedroom. A sliding barn door on an iron rail will also draw attention.


Whether you want to redo your whole home in this style or simply a room or two, it is guaranteed to create an attractive and comfortable setting for all who enter it.
