A decorating style that fills your home with a cozy aura, rustic style allows you experiment with texture, mixing vintage finds with bold woodwork and earthy hues. For individuals looking to add more primitive style to their space, there are many different options to consider – from bold furniture finds to warm throw blankets and vases of wildflowers.
Mix and Match
One of our favorite things about rustic style is the way it allows you to mix and match different colors, textures and materials. If you are having trouble deciding where you want to play with colors and textures, we recommend starting with your dining room table. A sturdy wood table can be paired with all types of chairs, creating a unique, collected look.
Whether you choose similar styles in all different colors or different designs all made from a similar material, a little bit of diversity goes a long way in creating a collected, primitive look.
Repurpose Vintage Finds
Another primitive decorating technique we love is repurposing. A wet sink converted into a functional bathroom sink, wooden crates hung on the walls as shadow boxes and pallets turned into coffee tables make for lovely rustic additions.
Focus on Texture
Once you have updated your furniture to create a more rustic appearance, texture is an important factor to consider when adding smaller decorative pieces into your space. We love the look of patchwork quilts in the bedroom, copper pots hanging in the kitchen and rusty iron light fixtures.
The best thing about primitive style is the way it allows your home to evolve as you find unique new items. No two rustic homes are quite the same, and it is this collected and completely one-of-a-kind look that makes them so home-y.
