Rustic home decor is applicable for anyone anywhere. We don’t need coming from a farm or living on a farm to apply this style. Furthermore, this is more about how you apply the simple and practical mindset following the Rustic home decor. This style brings the natural elements and soothing color combinations that provide ease of mind. The following ideas are not the rules so you are free to interpretation.
1. Neutral Color Walls
Achieve this rustic by adding the neutral color on the wall. Try to paint each room with different color (avoid dark or bright colors). Some color recommendation might be cream, soft-beige, white or even grey. You can get an instant farmhouse look by doing this idea. As long as you create your walls within the same color scheme so each room blends together.
2. Incorporate Dimension
This is for you who want to create a big change. Start this project by adding a shiplap, bead board or wainscoting. Those three elements are essentials for Rustic home decor. The true farmhouse is full of real rustic shiplap but you can create a small part of your home, like wainscoting in the dining room, bead board in the bathroom’s walls and shiplap walls in the living room. Though a small part brings significant impact to the entire home.
3. Mix Some Old And New Elements
We are not talking about a true farmhouse. In this article, we want to mix and match some old and new elements, such as add some unexpectedly unique pieces. For example, add flour sifter as a replacement of a standard flower. This unexpected piece builds a unique atmosphere to the surrounding, or it can be a new focal point in a room.
4. No Bright Colors
As mentioned earlier, the bright colors are forgotten in this Rustic home decor. So, avoid some shocking colors, such as red, purple, orange, etc. Though this is not a strict rule but it is better applied to get the calming vibe in your home. Thus, if you want to add a little touch of bright color, go get it. Use one pop of color sparingly.
5. Wire Baskets
The easiest and most ultimate piece of art in rustic style is a wire basket. Though you can’t get enough budget to remodel the entire home, try adding one or some wire basket (s) and you will get the rustic farmhouse feel instantly. Put some on the outdoor and indoor.
