Inspiring modern homes with rustic charm

The new trend in interior design is catering to the comfort and convenience of modern styling with a rustic twist. Open floor plans, modern furniture and natural stone architectural elements compose the defining character of a modern rustic area transporting your home back to the Neolithic era.

The Interior

Warm earth tones and large windows are dominant throughout this elegant yet comfortable style.

You don’t have to own an ancient home with old stone walls to conquer this style. You can accentuate the rustic character of your modern home by adding natural reclaimed architectural details such as exposed reclaimed wood beams on your ceiling, bare limestone wall cladding and flooring and hand carved natural limestone fireplaces adorning your family room, dining room, bedroom and even patio.

Bright and flashy wallpapered walls don’t fit in a rustic modern interior so opt for submissive white walls or better yet, natural limestone wall cladding and flooring like the barre blonde, barre gray, barre montpelier and dalle de Bourgogne. This offers you different signature looks from Tuscan, Mediterranean, farmhouse and French styles to name a few.

However, color lovers, do not despair! The good news is that you can still incorporate some color in your modern rustic home with reclaimed antique colored pavers that are perfect for living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and pretty much anywhere else.

Stone is not limited to the interior of your home. Reclaimed limestone tremendously impacts your exterior as well

Keep the decoration natural

A rustic modern home goes beyond the architectural details to include every decorative item from the fabric, rugs and furniture. However, a rustic home doesn’t necessarily warrant rustic furniture! Just make sure to keep it simple with warm neutral colors because natural is the way to go.

Don’t forget about the view

Modern interiors are geared towards open spaces while rustics have their hearts set on the great outdoors. This is achieved by large windows allowing lots of light in.53BV-09 copy
