Rustic Decorating Ideas for the Modern Home
Decorating Ideas for Every Room to Help You Add Rustic Charm
Rustic charm is a decorating style that has been warmly embraced by many. It can add warmth and character to any room in your home with the addition of a few singular pieces. Or go all out, and let it be the defining style for an entire room. There is flexibility in this design direction that makes the options endless.
There isn’t a ton of real estate in most bathrooms, so a few small additions can do the trick when adding rustic bathroom decor. A petite stand featuring galvanized metal trays can hold a pile of linens and plenty of small jars and bottles. Metal wall baskets are another way to wrangle in small things while turning on the charm. A billowy fresh white shower curtain contrasts beautifully next to the rustic elements.
Countertops are the perfect place to instill some rustic kitchen decor. Vintage kitchen canisters serve double duty by putting basic ingredients close at hand while adding a touch of charm. A double decker mesh wire basket wrangles fresh fruits and produce. Country-chic lighting adds warmth to your room. Candles in mason jars, a rustic lantern or a lovely pendant swag lamp all can do wonders to add the right touches of ambiance.
Your home office doesn’t need to be all business. It can exude its own warmth and charm with just a few key pieces. Put an unused corner to work with a perfectly fitting corner desk. Add an eclectic chair and a few decorative accents, like a pair of candleholders or a wooden memo board with wire bins to hold desk accessories. Stack a few books to add some height and top with a retro clock.
What could add rustic charm more than the warm glow of a welcoming fire? A vintage style fireplace is an easy addition, thanks to the electric options available. Walls get their own dose of charm with a trio of framed vintage keys or the addition of a weathered metal sconce.
