5 Ways to Add Rustic Charm to Your Home
Rustic style places a strong emphasis on bringing the outdoors in while embracing the rugged, natural textures and furniture.
Having rustic charm within the home is a great way to add soul to a house. Often associated with farmhouse and cottage decorating styles, rustic elements within a home can add a lot of character to a space, giving it a warm and homely feel.
Rustic interior design is mostly simple, natural, and with an earthly feel. The defining characteristic of a rustic home is the presence of natural materials and involves the use of interesting, rough, and organic textures. This means you do not have to worry about scratches and scrapes, bumps and dents in materials - rustic design celebrates these signs of age.
