Add Charm to A Casual Space With Rustic Decor

Life today might be all about the latest conveniences but there is something about rustic decor that endures, no matter how high-tech our homes become. Perhaps it’s the use of natural wood, pleasing color palettes and upcycled vibe that appeals to so many people. Regardless, the style offers a wide range of options that can inspire entire rustic room or just the use of a few pieces to add a casual flair to a space.

Bedrooms

Bedrooms that are styled around rustic decor have a homey, comfortable feel that is totally relaxing. A cozy bedroom by Bramble features a louvered headboard that is flanked by glass-doored cabinets with the same louvers at the bottom. The highly distressed panels behind the headboard add color and interest, and the finish is repeated on the side table. The setting is completed with a rustic chandelier that is perfect for mood lighting.

A second bedroom from Bramble is rustic but has a more refined flair thanks to a lighter color palette and a stately carved, yet distressed headboard. The bed also features side rails and a footboard, which adds to the polish of the decor. A plain neutral wall and a trio of rustic yet modern pendants completes the seven setting.

Here’s a great example from Bobo of a dining room setting that is a little modern yet a little rustic. The table and chairs are done in natural wood and could be considered more modern thanks to the shape and profile of the chairs. The addition of some geometric pendants that have a little bit of a rustic edge and the buckets as a centerpiece give it just enough rustic flair.

Dining Areas

HT&D has a dining set that incorporates two elements of rustic design: The live edge wood on the furnishings and the use of benches instead of chairs. This is almost a picnic style of dining table, made modern with the silver base that is an unexpected contrast to the natural wood top. The setting is completed with the glitzy chandelier that is toned down with a set of metal rings surrounding the crystal fixture. The overall look achieved is still rustic with just a dash of bling.

Fans of bistro style dining sets can also go for a rustic look with a set like this oval table and stools. The shape of the dining table, riveted edge and old-fashioned metal bases at each end are really attractive. The use of stools that are upholstered in leather and feature industrial-looking legs give the entire staff an upcycled quality.

Bathrooms

A bathroom arrangement from Bramble has plenty of rustic inspiration. First, the distressed wooden chandelier and the window wall in front of the vanity provide the dominant feel for the bathroom. The window could be done as a mirror and still achieve the same feel as long as the frame is distressed.  The chest style vanity with retro hardware is a perfect counterpoint.

7366da16d87a4f50179569fb43a9ed4f Add Charm to A Casual Space With Rustic DecorAgain, the mix of wood colors is eclectic and casual.

Lighting

One of the easiest ways to incorporate rustic decor in your home is to do it with lighting. As with furnishings, many options are available from ultra-rustic lighting fixtures to those that have a more refined air, but are still casual and feature rustic elements. Bobo’s rope covered chandelier has a bit of edge thanks to the old-fashioned bulbs that jut out in all directions, rather than just up or downward.

8115f597d3576c039508690877c657ba Add Charm to A Casual Space With Rustic DecorCopper fittings add to the rustic appeal while their shape lends a modern flair.

Upcycling of materials is commonly found in rustic decor and this table lamp, also from Bobo, is a prime example. What was once a whisk attachment for an industrial bakery mixer is now a lampshade, surrounding the vintage style bulb. While many of these bulbs are old-style, the technology inside is still modern and uses an LED filament.

Dovetail’s pendants, arranged in a linear fashion, are just enough to add a rustic touch to a casual or modern dining area. These could also bring a rustic flair to a kitchen island. The brushed metal bases are not shiny and have a bit of an industrial feel. They would work well with country chic pieces as well as an eclectic decor style.

6b5a3d7f3abfe5fb9d07981447ef0ca7 Add Charm to A Casual Space With Rustic DecorThe globe shape of the glass is different as many similar fixtures do not have a glass cover that extends beyond the metal.

Another example of a rustic metal light fixture is this one by Bramble. A little rusty, a little aged, the pedant features an old-style bulb as well as an interior lining that looks like a vintage wallpaper print. The soft colors and delicate flowers are juxtaposed with the hefty metal exterior, which adds a lot of interest.

c7383e16ca4f164ffdb3fc443a7879a1 Add Charm to A Casual Space With Rustic DecorThis would be perfect in a bedroom, rustic sitting area, or even a bathroom.

Some rustic light fixtures are more ramshackle than others, as does this one. Hammered metal squares are roughly joined into a lampshade that hangs by a rusty-looking chain. Bramble’s design is fitting for a rustic or eclectic space where it can play off of other rustic items, perhaps softened by some delicate decor features.

acc53321393bf1b02c230a76183f409e Add Charm to A Casual Space With Rustic DecorThis fixture definitely has a recycled feel.

Another rustic style of metal pendant features a patinated exterior. Uttermost’s trio of pendants are all different shapes, creating a distinctive grouping. They also could be used individually or as a set of the same shape. Either way, the metal lends a bit of color to a rooms decor while till keeping a generally neutral palette. These could work with a variety of decor styles and are just a touch of rustic.

fecec8d2ef2854bf163b19f7a0158798 Add Charm to A Casual Space With Rustic DecorThe finish is what really makes these pendants.

These blown glass pendants feature somewhat of a traditional rustic style. The open shape, wire form on top of the glass and retro bulbs make these fixtures very adaptable to different decor styles. While the pulley-type of hanging mechanism is not delicate, these pendants could be incorporated into an eclectic space that has a lighter feel.

Far more refined — but still rustic in its appearance — is this wood-beaded chandelier by Bramble. Devoid of any crystal, the rustic metal arms and distressed wood create an overall casual look. Wooden drops take the place of the usual glass embellishments and have just as much style.

6701a099479744e5fba8529a5b988ca4 Add Charm to A Casual Space With Rustic DecorWe can think of so many different spaces where this chandelier would shine.

Stools and Chairs

Adding some rustic seating to your decor is another effortless way to play up this style. A mildly rustic stool that features a woven top is good first step. It’s not distressed or overly primitive, making it an easy piece to work in with existing furnishings. Classic Home’s stools come in different heights and would be good as an accent or as counter seating in the kitchen.

At the other end of the spectrum is Bella Rustica’s stool fashioned from a saddle. This is full-on rustic at its quirkiest. The stool is a wonderful accent seat or could be used more as decor: Just drape throw over the saddle and arrange it where it can serve as an eye-catching accessory.

Frayed-edge upholstery has become popular, especially for dining areas where you want to have upholstered chairs but are still aiming for a very casual vibe. These white armchairs from Dovetail feature a textured fabric that looks almost like a slipcover. They are a perfect match for a natural wood table as shown here. Even with the frayed edges, the chairs provide a dose of rustic elegance to the dining room.

Furniture

More than anything else, furniture can transform your decor into a truly rustic interior. Using multiple small pieces or focusing on a large dominant piece can provide a framework for the room. Classic Home’s rustic bar is a charming piece that would anchor a family room or game area, with its distressed, coffered front panels. This style of furniture immediately gives a room a homey feeling.

This bar from Horizon Home is made to look rustic with metal fittings, a distressed patina, and stenciling meant to evoke an upcycled trunk or crate. Adding chairs that also have a distressed finish, but in a contrasting color, create a rustic bar setting with a casual aura that will allow family and friends to relax and enjoy.

While rustic decor generally maintains a neutral color palette, it does not have to. Distressed finishes come in a variety of colors and some pieces, like these from Horizon Home, incorporate several hues in one item. The mix of colors adds a pop to the space without sacrificing the rustic vibe. Used in a mainly neutral room, this kind of cabinet would immediately become the focal point.

Trunks

Trunks large and small are terrific additions to a rustic space because they usually have a worn and well-traveled feel that adds to their appeal. Even new reproductions are created to look like vintage pieces and can be nice accents for a rustic room. HT&D has one that features a play on stars and stripes, old fashioned hardware, and metal edge work,
