The all that rustic home decor is all the rage right now. You just need to look in your local decorating catalogs and you will see them all laid out with all that sultry country feeling. It seems that people everywhere are wanting to escape to a cabin in the woods for their every day life. There is something very comforting about being outdoors and being by nature.
But why not go the other way? Where do you get the all that rustic home decor but without having to sacrifice all of the nice modern conveniences? Decorating should be an adventure, one that gets you out of the house and into nature. We want to bring nature to not let it out, which is why we use rustic home decor.
One of the best places to start is with the furniture. Most rustic home decor starts and ends with rustic furniture. You want to use as many of those pieces of furniture that have thatched roofs. This adds a little bit of the Wild West to the decor but still adds to the wow factor. If you are not interested in thatched roof furniture then at least try to incorporate some wicker or rattan pieces.
Other rustic accents that you can add to your home decor are stone, ceramic tile, metal, and wood. We also love to use natural accessories like baskets, hats, pillows, and furniture like tables and couches. When you use natural items instead of those plastic junk cans they are usually much cheaper, they also hold up better, and you know that they were made out of the earth!
Another thing we like in our rustic home decor is a feeling of warmth and inviting in the rooms. We try not to use very much heavy furniture and stay away from the dark colors. Instead we try to use light and airy colors that remind us of when we used to live in the mountains. Nature is wonderful for helping to decorate with rustic home decor.
Our bedrooms in particular are where most of our decorating is done. That is because we spend the most time there when we are sleeping. That is why we try to find rustic home decor bedding that is as soft and comfortable as possible. Most of our bedding is based on the American Indian theme, so if you don’t like the color scheme you can get to bed that is more primitive.
We do not like to spend money on fancy home decor items unless it is something we absolutely have to have. We tend to save up for these special items so that we can buy them only once we have everything else in place. That way we can be sure that we will love the item before we purchase it. We tend to base our decoration schemes on the colors we love so if we see something that we like, we might not feel like buying it, but we will go ahead and do it anyway.
For those of us who have a little more cash and want to add a little elegance to our home decor we can use rustic home decor to enhance our furniture choices. For example, we might choose to use a rustic table and chairs set for our dining room. That would make it so much more inviting. The chairs can be in any rustic style from basic to elaborate. You can even find rustic patio furniture that is made to look just like outdoor furniture so that you can entertain company on the patio all year around.
