Beautiful rustic chic inspirations!

A space with rustic elements is appealing to many of us because it instantly injects warmth and evokes a sense of history in a room. While rustic decor is commonly used in cabins and mountain estates, they have found a place in contemporary and modern interiors today because more and more people started to appreciate its allure. The addition of rustic elements whether in big or small doses often make a space feels more lived-in, timeless and inviting regardless of the overall design style. Below are some ideas of how to incorporate a little rustic decor in your own home.














Are you a fan of rustic decor? Which rustic element are you most drawn to and why?

  2. Lovely pictures! I think I prefer about 20% of a rustic element, a bit more if it's a floor material. My favorite is number nine, because I like the juxtaposition of the formal sofa and the casual, rustic floor.

  3. Absolutely stunning images Jessie! I'm all about rustic elements, my dream home would have old wide oak floorboards and ceiling beams and a huge stone fireplace and antique light fittings and... ok, getting a bit carried away but you get the picture!

  15. LOVE rustic charm - I like mixing it up a bit - something new, old, rustic, industrial - give the place an authentic feel. Love this post though Jessie - my fave is the bathroom, or the birch branches under the table - brill.

  17. Number 8 and number 9 are my favorites- all that white in #9 along with the dark wood floor- so pretty! And I love all the pictures of the white wooden walls.
    Thank you for your comment about my centerpiece! I am so happy with it; I hate when I know something needs to be changed but I haven't figured out a solution- it drives me crazy! Now I can be at peace again! :)

  18. I like touches of rustic to add texture to a room, but over all I am not a rustic kind of gal, but give me a great basket with lots of texture and I am a happy camper!! Kathysue

  19. Thank you so much for the comments on my bookshelf! :) You always brighten my day! I love these photos, I think this might be one of my favorite post of yours! I love the rustic style. But only when it's done right. All of the pictures above shows how to do it right of course! :)

    My mother has a friend who's a total slave to what she refers to as the rustic style, but she's crammed her house full of old, unpolished, damaged stuff. None of it is worth anything and is beyond saving. It's too much and without any order. I think mixing the old or rustic looking with plain, clean items or colors is essential to make this style work. Balance. Always balance! :)

    I love the second and third picture! I want to live like that :)
