The rustic-modern interior trend is a welcome change from vintage rustic that takes a break from aesthetic concerns. Unfinished rustic beams and brick walls with natural wood or stone floors decorated with antique furniture and natural fabrics. That’s a style I like to explore.
Incorporate rustic elements into our homes in an informal and sophisticated way, such as using an old door as a headboard. The key here is the screen. Open the doors so that the two door panels are on either side of the frame and hang a beautiful iron lantern to complete the look. Simple iron bedside tables and a long trunk at the end of the bed with artisanal handwoven bedding. The idea is to be discreet. Rustic patina mirrors sit above a long dresser with a modern contemporary chair that defines the look.
Reclaimed arches make floor mirrors mix great with plush upholstery, industrial chairs, and lots of vintage white. The reclaimed old door coffee table and fire console add the right amount of texture to an otherwise modernist room. A bright yellow carved cabinet against the white wall adds the pop of color. Rustic furniture mixed with modern and functional chairs with clean lines give it a sophisticated touch. Sophisticated design is paired with a rustic white door dining table and leather chairs.
The kitchen is more towards a rustic industrial style with steel framed windows. White paint and granite counters keep the modern touch contrasted with an ancient carved tribal Damchia that has been converted into an island making the piece more functional.
Fresh but used with the tender love of family gatherings, the sofa bed is in the corner. Use soothing colors in the light blue and icy purple spectrum and keep the wear level on cabinets light. No curtains on the windows gives a feeling of open space.
The bathroom vanity is made from an old beaten-up cabinet with a granite countertop and vessel sinks. Pendant lights and plain glass showers with wall-to-wall marble tiling give the bathroom a sophisticated modern rustic elegance.
The library has a huge table carved from ancient bone with white upholstered chairs and a bench across from it. Modern bookshelves line the wall which is packed with classics and encyclopedias. The main wall is devoted to family pictures framed in antique carved wood and burnished brass. Nostalgic and vintage yet modern, comfort is the key element of this design.
