How to Make Your Home a Rustic Retreat

Saturday, July 16, 2022

Whether you have an antique farmhouse or a recently built getaway, here are four tips for creating the perfect rustic ambience.

Reclaimed Materials

Its quite common to find homes with reclaimed floors and ceiling beams that had a past life in a barn or mill.

Natural Colors and Textures

An abundance of wood and stone are a hallmark of rustic design. Natural tones are the most common, but that doesnt mean you have to stick to neutrals.

Embrace the Outdoors

Access to nature is perhaps the greatest benefit of having a home far from the city. Take advantage of this with multiple outdoor living spaces.

Keep Tech Discreet

Rustic design is somewhat at odds with smart home technology, but there are smart tech options that won’t compromise the aesthetic.
