ustic luxury design is a trending favorite. This vogue interior style is made up of everything good about rural living: exposed beams, crackling firesides, warm blankets, and ample room for relaxed conversation. Curated properly, this look can pair well with minimalism: it doesn’t take much to make an elegant, unaffected statement. You also don’t have to be outside the city to bring a bit of the country in—assemble your rustic mix from this selection of pastoral recommendations. Natural Materials: Rustic décor is anchored by a focus on wood, but stonework, natural fabrics, and purposeful potted greenery provide the accompanying high notes. Branches, antlers, animal print, and decorative plants add a layer of the outdoors to your indoors—group these accents to create intimate vignettes. Rugged Furniture: While rustic can be done to scale, its furniture presents the potential for some maximalist play. Leather loveseats, low-set settees, and antique wing chairs are not out of place in an unpretentious living room, while dining rooms offer the potential for reclaimed wood trestle tables and cast-iron pendant lighting. Found driftwood can easily become a coffee table or side seat; the benefit of this comfortable design ethos is that every piece can spark a conversation.

504 West Eucalyptus, Ojai, California

Neutral Palettes: When dealing with the visual textures of rustic design, it is wise to let the ambience do the talking. White, cream, or trending beige walls allow the found elements of your thoughtfully-chosen furnishings to shine through without added visual noise. Drape windows in linen, and anchor gauzy curtains with industrial hardware. Traditional Patterns: Plaid, earthy prints, and woven textiles ground this style in the patterns of the past and balance out a neutral backdrop. Browns, reds, greens, creams, and burnished coppers come to the fore in rustic blankets and throws—think autumn as you select your soft trappings. Whether you incorporate a few rustic pieces or design every nook and cranny of your home with rustic love, the latest in lodge décor promises to add a splash of agrarian life to your everyday routine.
