Easy Ways To Give Your Home a Rustic Look

Rustic interior design is hugely on-trend this year. The style aims to create a warm and cosy environment that takes inspiration from nature. Wood, stone, metal and other natural materials are a must, as well as cosy lighting and neutral colour schemes. If you want to inject farmhouse style into your interior, then look no further! Here are some simple and easy ways to give your home a rustic look.

Soft Furnishings

One of the quickest and easiest ways to switch up your interior style is to invest in some new soft furnishings. From rugs and lampshades, to cushions and throws, there are lots of ways to achieve a rustic look. Choose check patterns, plain designs or country-inspired styles featuring farmhouse animals.

Colour Scheme

Stick to a natural colour scheme to make your home feel truly rustic. Warm neutrals such as cream, beige and ivory work well in any space, large or small. If you do want to inject a pop of colour, use country-inspired shades such as forest green, raspberry, sunshine yellow or duck egg blue.

Rustic Materials

The key to creating a rustic interior lies in your choice of materials. Mix and match hardy oak, sleek steel, industrial iron and exposed brickwork to create the ultimate farmhouse chic. From wire hanging baskets and decorative signs to large pieces of wooden furniture, there are lots of ways to incorporate these materials into your décor.

Farmhouse Furniture

Creating a rustic look is tricky without the right style furniture. So fill your space with beautiful pieces of timeless furniture that are both functional and fashionable. Companies like Cotswold Co have a striking collection of farmhouse inspired designs. Choose from painted pieces, natural oak and washed wood styles that are sure to transform your interior.

Lighting Design

Lighting can make a huge difference to the look and feel of your home. To create a cosy environment, choose warm lighting that will fill your room in a lovely golden glow. Rather than relying on your main room-light, pop lamps in the corners of the room for a little more subtlety. Choose those with natural bases such as wood or iron and rustic lampshades made from linen or metal. Candles are also a great way to create a calm atmosphere – plus they smell great too!

To create a beautifully rustic interior, follow these top tips. You’ll be able to create a warm and inviting space in no time!
