In a rustic home, you work with what you have. Nothing goes to waste and most things are re-used, recycled or re-purposed. There was a time we did this out of necessity, and to some it seems like the reasonable thing to do even today.
In an era where sustainability is key, rustic is downright stylish. With organic textures and shapes, warm tones, rustic spaces feel like home. Just because something is weathered or worn doesn’t mean you have throw it out. There’s beauty in old furnishings, they have a history, a story and are often the most comfortable and sturdy pieces around. The color palate for rustic style is natural, earthy tones found in nature. Think cabin in the woods. The style is imbued with warmth and textural fabrics that bring you closer to the great outdoors.
