Top Tips for Doing Rustic Modern Home Decor Right
By: Danielle Hegedus
“Rustic Modern” may sound like an oxymoron, but 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, creating a unique, one-of-a-kind look that is also environmentally sustainable. Creating a rustic modern look may be a delicate balance, but 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.
