There are many decor styles you can choose from to redecorate your house. Some of these styles of decor are traditional, some are contemporary, and some are what you can consider a mixture of both. Many people savor and adore the beauty and simplicity of rustic decor. A room decorated in rustic is never short on the “warm and cozy” ambiance. We shall tell you here a few things about rustic decor if you are planning to decorate your living room with it.
1- When it comes to beauty, rustic decor takes it from simplicity. You will notice that the materials and furniture pieces are left in their original condition. There is no smoothing or over sanding of wood or lacquering and priming of materials with an assortment of products. Everything is left in its original state it was first found in.
2- You can almost touch the warm cozy feeling you find in rooms decorated with rustic decor. You can almost feel like you are in a hunter’s cabin in a “once upon a time” story when you are in a rustic styled living room. And this is exactly why this style is often called “hunter style”.
3- If your furniture has an “old” look then you can say it is rustic. To make a room have such an ambiance, you will need furniture made of rough wood and wicker pieces. The covers and fabrics should also inspire a feeling of the past. In places decorated in rustic style you will notice that even tablecloths and pillow cases are made from rich cotton canvas and are decorated with intricate needlework.
4- Looking for decorations and ornaments to “add a little bit of you” to your rustic place? Then you should scout antic shops. Look for things of the past, like, candleholders, lanterns, small wicker baskets etc.
5- Every decorated room has a focal point, and in rustic style, certain pieces of furniture are the focal point. For example, most living rooms furnished in rustic style have a stone fireplace decorated with candleholders and antique framed pictures of loved ones. You will find wooden beams that draws your attention as soon as you enter a room decorated in rustic decor.
