Although usually associated with country, coastal or cottage styles, rustic décor items can fit into almost any decorating style. Whether you want to build an entire log cabin outfitted with colors inspired by nature or want a dramatic headboard for your modern styled bedroom, rustic items can highlight form and function while reflecting your unique personality and aesthetic.

Custom and Reclaimed Timber

One of the main themes of rustic décor is timber, you can find a variety of stains and wood types as well as finishes that are smooth and polished or look rough and hand-made with the right reliable mill direct wholesale distributor. Many mills and distributors will even have options for reclaimed timber, which is removed or harvested from buildings designated for demolition and prepared for new uses as accent walls, ceiling joists and furniture. When you browse timber design ideas and build the room around the pieces that most appeal to you like accent walls, side tables or chairs, creating the look you want can be easier.

Comfort and Color

When you redecorate a space, you want it to reflect your aesthetic as well as provide comfort and function. Rustic styles, or styles with rustic accents, can reflect these things with pops of color, a mix of textures and pieces sized for the space. Large great rooms, for example, can feel homier and more comfortable with couches, chairs or sideboards with bulky timber frames. Starting with a neutral color palette for the larger pieces and linens can allow your pop of color in throw pillows, lamps or trinkets to stand out without detracting from the comfort of the space; but, sometimes a dramatic and brightly colored accent wall or couch can provide the right contrast to the more rustic elements.

When redecorating a room, you want to think in terms of both form and function. This can give you a space that reflects your aesthetic and allows you to feel more at home. You can do this with rustic elements such as timber, comfortable textures and pops of your favorite color.
