A natural choice to home decor – Rustic Wood

Fresh Ideas For Your Home

Rustic wood decor and help to create a feeling of comfort and tradition.

Wood is a natural design element. Using wood in home decor, one can opt for smooth and refined wood, as and that’s always a good choice. However, you can also use rustic wood for an even more natural and classic woodsy feel that will make your home comforting.

Rustic wood comes in many different varieties, including pine, mahogany, oak, fir, walnut and almost any type of wood. It also comes in many looks, from boards recycled from barns to wood reclaimed from temples. Even old logs, driftwood and tree stumps can be used for a rustic interior look!

Rustic wood is all about the rough feel, so keep texture in mind when you select the other home furnishings that go into a full design. Linen complements rustic wood nicely and silk offers a great contrast. Other home fashions that go well with rustic wood include cowhide rugs, Southwestern carpets or bedding, leather upholstery, pottery, and textured stone.

Rustic wood looks great with white or light beige as a neutral because the light clean color brings out the beauty and grain of the rustic wood. Accent colors include sage green and a rusty red. You can even pair rustic wood with a black and white color scheme to add more decor drama.

Consider the following elements when adding rustic wood to your home:

  • Coffee tables, end tables, and dining tables

  • Flooring

  • Lamps and artwork

  • One wall or a sliding door taken from an old industrial building

  • Bookshelves

  • Kitchen cabinets

  • Bathroom cabinets

  • Bed frames

  • Fireplace mantels or surrounds

  • Wood beams in the ceiling or the ceiling itself

If you like texture, nature, and a warm, earthy look, decorating with rustic wood may be just the style for you.
