I have zeroed in on my personal style preferences where home design is concerned. Still, I can be stopped in my tracks when I spot a room, or the details therein, that I love. Recently, I stumbled across a series of rustic images on Pinterest. I had fun searching out additional images for this post.
rus•tic adjective 1. of or relating to the countryside; rural. 2. constructed or made in a plain and simple fashion, in particular. synonyms: plain, simple, homely, unsophisticated
This cabin might be an example of crossing the line between rustic and primitive…
This one? Maybe, but I sure love the setting. You know how I love tree houses.
There is something so striking about a lot of what would be called RUSTIC style. Sometimes there’s a fine line between rustic and primitive and maybe I’m not so enamored of the primitive side of design, but plain and simple can often lure me in. More often than not, I find rustic furniture and small architectural details left in a rustic state a look I could not only live with, but be quite content.
There’s a rustic look to the wood on the walls in this space. The simplicity of the table and chairs, the bell jar lighting and the open-air feel are inviting.
Talk about kicking ‘it’ up a notch with the rustic look…I love this metal(?) vintage door used for the closet. There’s got to be an interesting story behind this selection.
I can imagine a wooden tub in a cabin or second home somewhere…a back to nature getaway.
True confession, the image below, while it has a chippy armoire, the only truly rustic piece is the coffee table. I love the fireplace and charcoal gray velvet sofa so I had to include this room.
This tub might be more comfortable, the sides have been adorned with reclaimed wood but the tub is a either porcelain over cast iron or acrylic-like.
The floors are very rustic in the bedroom below, too rustic?
Thoughts? Am I taking the year’s personal goal of “simplicity” too far?
