Lucky people that have a getaway home in the woods, on the beach, or in the mountains may be very tempted to decorate it with a nod to the location. After all, how fun is it to decorate a house just steps from the beach with a fish and ocean theme? A cabin in the woods just begs for a cutesy forest animal wonderland theme, with a dash of stylish furniture made with various wood materials. But you don’t have to have a vacation home in the mountains for rustic decorating. Create the airy, relaxed atmosphere in your home, in any room, with the right, rustic pieces.
The Dining Room
What makes furniture “rustic”? The colors and the type of materials are pretty important; the color palette found in nature like shades of brown, greens, and florals. As far as materials go, wood is right on point, and different metals are a perfect pairing with natural wood. These two dining room sets, the Omaha Grey and the Redondo Driftwood are not only appropriately rustic in style and color but comfortable with neutral, cushioned seats.
The Living Room
Every faux-mountain house, or rustic style home, (or, let’s be honest, any home), must have a sofa that begs to be curled up on, whether or not it’s in front of a fireplace. Combine the soft upholstery with a detailed wood frame and whoosh, instantly rustic. Take a look at the Pick Pocket Brazil Sofa and Loveseat and the Gunslinger Bark Sofa and Loveseat. Not only are these sofa sets covered in beautiful natural brown hues but have an exposed, detailed wood frame.
The Living Room (continued)
The finishing touch in a living room is a table set which includes a coffee table and end tables to complete a furnished room. If you want to use accessories in a room to get that rustic feel, look at these table sets, the Pisa 3 Piece Table Set and the Ainsley 3 Piece Table Set that pairs a natural wood finish with black metal details.
What’s your favorite part about being on vacation? The sleeping-in in a cozy bed, with a lot of blankets, cushy pillows, and a plush mattress, is the activity to which we’re partial. And when you open one eye to check the clock, and get a glimpse of your rustic style bedroom set, you can pretend that your windows have a mountain view. The Montana Bedroom Set and the Chateau Bedroom Set are beautiful choices for a rustic décor.
