Is Rustic Style Just a Fad?
Rustic design is nothing new. However, it is enjoying a modern twist thanks to decorators, architects, homemakers, and artists who love nature and the outdoors. There’s no one definition of what ‘rustic’ is. But it normally has three important components:
- Utilization of natural materials (reclaimed wood, live plants, unpolished stone, etc.);
- Lots of texture (as seen on the different materials used); and
- It should convey warmth and ‘homey-ness’.
In essence, things should look laidback, rough, or aged. This style is highly popular in interior design. Many people incorporate rustic elements in their homes so it feels less ‘hardy’ and more put-together.
You don’t need an expensive DIY to give your rooms a similar treatment. A couple of tweaks should do the trick. For instance: make sure to set aside an area for hibernation. It could be a cozy chair with a blanket, or a sofa with colorful linen quilts.
Next, handmade rustic home decor, like wooden side tables or a wicker basket for magazines is a nice touch. Don’t forget rugs in earth tones. Lastly, add indoor plants to let the outside in. Open up your curtains during the day to let as much light in, too. This should make the room seem less stuffy.
Must-Have Rustic Fonts
When it comes to that authentic outdoorsy vibe, less is indeed, more. Settle on two to four elements that go well together. Then adjust your design accordingly. Rustic is in the little things – be it a pillow, a plant, or a hue.
Never underestimate what tiny changes can bring. With that said, check out these modern rustic fonts to add a genuine country feel to your projects.
