Do you love the rustic look but don’t know how to get started? Are you looking for some inspiration when it comes to window treatments? Look no further! In this blog post, we’ll discuss a variety of trending window treatment options that feature a rustic look. These fresh ideas are sure to make your home look warm and inviting.
What makes a rustic design?
You might know it when you see it, but what exactly counts as rustic? Here are the key design elements:
Rustic design draws its inspiration from nature. Play around with avoiding sharp lines and opt for more organic shapes. Consider using furniture pieces in round or oval shapes in your living room or bedroom.
Real wood material
Rustic homes incorporate elements such as hardwood shutters or wood blinds for a natural touch. Reclaimed materials and hardwoods are some of the most cost-efficient options when it comes to rustic decor. You can use them for window frames, framing for art, and even as a feature piece in your window coverings to give the room a unique farmhouse look.
Keep things simple by using a few elements to give the room an unreserved, organic feel. Details are everything when it comes to rustic decor, so don’t overcomplicate things with gaudy valances and curtain rods. Add a few accents like quilts and baskets for texture, or hang vintage rugs on the walls as an eye-catching focal point.
Mix things up with textured materials and fabrics like cotton, linen, and wool. These add depth to the interior design. Don’t be afraid to go bold with wall treatments. Stucco walls and exposed brick can create a modern take while still keeping with the rustic style.
Warm tones and earthy colors like browns, tans, and blues give your space that homey feel. Incorporating furniture pieces in natural tones will bring out the woodsy ambiance, while neutral colors like white, beige, and gray help to create a peaceful atmosphere. The modern farmhouse shies away from vibrant colors and loud patterns like plaid and paisley.
