Decorating your house with rustic decorations will create a true feeling of warmth in it and make a pleasant atmosphere for ones living in it. This kind of design is usually associated with countryside homes and cottages, but it can be perfectly incorporated into our modern apartments as well.
1) If you want to add a rustic touch to your home, but don’t know what to do first, it’s always a good idea to start from the ceiling. Installing a wooden surface with visible wooden beams will give the space that “cozy” feeling of being in a mountain house even in your downtown apartment. This detail is also very useful if you want to give your bathroom a makeover because it feels too cold.
2) Colors usually associated with this type of design are the ones found in the nature – white, beige, brown (all shades) and dark-green. It is recommended to use white as a foundation of your design, so the easiest and most effective way is to paint the walls in this color and then to use brown shades for your wooden furniture. Adding colorful wallpapers on your walls with flower patterns can do wonders in your kitchen when it comes to brightening the room.
3) Details around your house are the final touch that will give your home a true rustic feeling. Install shelves made out of rough wood on your walls and display your family photos in homemade frames you can create from chunks of wood found in your garden. Also, add lamps in corners of the room and next to your couch to create romantic “candle light” atmosphere in your living room.
