Personalizing & Modernizing The Rustic!

Jan 14, 2014 | Home Style


Living with more natural forms and rustic vibes need not be a recipe for drab and blah. In fact, the drab and blah is terrible feng shui!  Here is a little inspiration to personalize your neutral and rustic decor, creating something stunning and chic that still resonates with the Earth!

This house has a freshness with all it’s plants that makes the neutral and woodsy retro less oppressive!

All the airiness of a loft made into a wonderland with the addition of tree trunks!

Rustic made brilliant with multicolored Mid Century chairs for rhythm and character!


Here, metal hanging lanterns create visual wow factor, metal and fire to reduce some of the overly woodsy vibe.

Rustic and natural are the ethos of connection to the land.  Adding in some fresh touches of modern illuminates and personalizes that natural goodness!  xoxo Dana

    I love all of these! Almost kind of minimalist in a way, but more balanced and warm because of the mix of elements and touch of color on the walls. I usually gravitate toward the all-white-wall look, but can’t really pull it off in my apartment because of the existing cream/beige appliances, floors, and countertops. Lol, I’m overly sensitive to conflicting undertones! So most of the apartment has light colored cream and grey walls (a lot like the wall colors in the 2nd and 3rd pictures). Kind of made me change my decorating approach, but I welcomed the challenge and the “warm/rustic minimalist” look is growing on me! Saved the 2nd pic for inspiration, thanks for another wonderful post, Dana!
