    It's an exciting time for modern rustic design!

  • Top Tips for Doing Rustic Modern Home Decor Right

    By: Danielle Hegedus

    “Rustic Modern” may sound like an oxymoron; however, it’s one of the most beautiful, feng-shui friendly trends in the design world right now. Homeowners are really embracing the warmth of rustic design coupled with the streamlined Zen-look of more modern design. We love how this trend beautifully couples a wide array of natural building materials like metal, glass, stone, and wood—a hallmark of good feng shui! We also love how it encourages designers and homeowners to utilize recycled materials; to creating a unique, one-of-a-kind look that is also environmentally sustainable. Creating a rustic modern look may be a delicate balance! However, follow these simple guidelines and your home will be transformed in no time.

    Look for Furniture with Clean Lines for a Contemporary Feel

    One of the joys of rustic modern style is having a simple, clean, uncluttered space—no chaos allowed. When choosing furniture or decor to bring into your home, look for sleek, clean, functional pieces that come in simple geometric shapes. Avoid cluttering your furniture with knickknacks. You want to keep your space clear and open, which will also make cleaning a breeze. Keep your color palette neutral, to truly bring the beauty of the outdoors into your home. We especially like this Reclaimed Wood Entertainment Center with its clean lines and reclaimed wood, perfectly complemented by stainless steel drawer pulls.

    Incorporate Reclaimed Wood and Recycled Materials Into Your Rustic Modern Home Decor 

    Incorporating reclaimed or recycled materials into your home creates a rustic, eco-friendly feel; while also providing your home with one-of-a-kind pieces that infuse a sense of history into the space. Reclaimed wood is a popular choice for structural elements of your home like floors, beaming, and doors! However, it’s also gaining popularity in the furniture realm. We like the simple beauty of this Reclaimed Wood Platform Bed that definitely brings a Zen element to your bedroom, but without the stark, coldness often associated with a more minimalist design.

    Keep the commitment to using recycled materials top of mind when making choices about the rest of your rustic modern home decor, too. For instance, consider using bioglass or stone for your countertops to create a striking look! One that introduces more natural elements into your home, complementing the rustic decor. Additionally when you do add decor elements (remember not to go overboard, we don’t want to create clutter) to your home. You should consider highlighting simple antique pieces that don’t require additional manufacturing and production; making them eco-friendly and unique to your home.

    Urban Chic Bed

    Keep Rustic Modern Home Decor Simple and Reminiscent of Natural Elements

    If you’re not using antique or upcycled decor to pull your rustic modern home design together, try adding pieces (in limited quantity) that bring earth tone colors like white, cream, and varying shades of brown, blue, grey, and green into your home. Utilizing earth tones creates a color palette that is soothing and calm. Beyond color, look for items that are made from natural materials like wood, glass, metal, and stone.

    This Natural Wood Vase is the perfect example of how to subtly introduce earth tones into your home using natural materials. If you’re not sure if a decor item passes the rustic modern home decor test; think about whether or not you could see it naturally occurring in nature. To that end, remember to avoid anything that is plastic or that has the appearance of being mass produced! As this will really throw off the rustic element of your design scheme.

    Wood Vase in Blue Wash

    Mix an Array of Natural Building Materials to Create a Modern, Industrial Feel

    Though rustic decor tends to favor wood; it’s important to introduce some other natural elements that provide contrasting texture! This is in order to shift your design from what could easily become a country, log cabin feel; to a more balanced rustic modern look. We love this Rustic Hammered Copper Mirror as it meets all of our guidelines. It has clean lines. It’s made from sustainable naturally-occurring copper. It even brings earth tones into your space; but because of the metal foundation, the color shines, creating a vibrant pop of color in your home.

    Rustic Metal Mirror

    We hope these simple guidelines will help you create the rustic modern home design that you are seeking. When executed successfully, rustic modern home decor design will give your home or cottage a clean, calm, nature-inspired feel that is truly unique. The look will also reflect your commitment to sustainability, too—making it a look-good, feel-good design choice!

  • Barnwood Furniture, Custom Made

    A piece of custom barnwood furniture - bed

    In your search for that perfect pieces of furniture that delivers uniqueness and originality, have you looked at barn wood furniture? Custom barnwood furniture is very popular with folks looking for new and trendy green products. It has a wonderful soft touch and a beautiful amber glow! It acquires this look from over 100 years of farm use! Woodland’s barnwood is all reclaimed, all natural, stunningly beautiful that comes from years of weathering and hands on use.

    Links and Popularity 

    Furniture constructed of barnwood is deeply connected to our American culture.  The farms feed our population from New England to California. The stables housed the horses that were central to our transportation from western communities of Montana and Yellowstone to the mountain of the northeast.  Barnwood fits perfectly with traditional designs but also gives a new look to contemporary furniture projects.

    Design and Products

    Barnwood furniture begins with rough planks and weathered siding and ends in amazing rustic and contemporary designs that add an elegant look to any room.  Rustic fixtures, like mirrors, oldworld photographs, antler acessories and pinecone decor, easily compliment reclaimed barnwood designs! Add your own personality to the rustic designs to make the room your own.

    Styles and Ranges

    The wonderful elements of barnwood allow you to create your own individual preferences in your dining room, bedroom and bath.  The subtle differences in Woodland Creek designs permit rustic, ranch, mountain, contemporary, and elegant schemes to mix and match in one home.  The mixing creates interest as your eyes flows round a room.

The nightstands to fit you bedroom.  We build the custom barnwood furniture for you; and, it becomes furniture that is passed down from one generation to the next.  Heirloom, Inheritance, legacy all describe Woodland Creek Furniture’s custom built designs.  Handmade furniture for you and your great grandchildren.

    The final choice all comes down to individual preference, because the variety is endless and the styles are uncountable. An addition of some subtle details may do it for some whereas others may call for something large like a large table. Regardless of the choice, it will always be more than enough to highlight the grace of the room. The prices also vary and no matter what your budget you will find a new piece to compliment your home like nothing else.
