rustic styleDo you love the look of spaces with a rustic style paired with trendy touches? Would you count Chris Loves Julia among your favorite home design blogs? And do you still have a soft spot in your heart for shiplap, along with everything else Chip and Joanna Gaines style? If so, your style might be what Modsy calls Rustic Warmth.

Rustic Warmth is our second most popular style at Modsy (right behind its more modern and minimal counterpart, Mod Visionary). Our take on a rustic style starts with a foundation of comfortable furnishings to create a warm and inviting space. Then, we say tweak your accessories to make the style yours. Some people lean more industrial, while others prefer modern. Sometimes rustic can be cozy, and other times it can push more trendy.

Here, we’ve pulled together some spaces that showcase our 2018 take on the Rustic Warmth style. Get inspired by these rustic spaces and pick up ideas for bringing a cozy, rustic style into your own home. Not sure what your style is? Take our Modsy Style Quiz to find out.

rustic style1. Mix Rustic & Modern

Rustic furnishings are more versatile than you think, meaning they work great with a range of different design styles. Try mixing a chesterfield sofa with updated armchairs and a contemporary natural fiber rug for a totally welcoming rustic style living room.

rustic style2. Mix Rustic & Industrial

Similarly, rustic furnishings can work great with industrial pieces. Try pairing yours with a steamer trunk, a stone-top carved table, or even a steel pendant. This combination results in a rustic-style living space that makes a statement but still feels inviting.

rustic style3. Make Rustic Kid and Pet-Friendly

A style that’s all about comfiness, the Rustic Warmth look is an easy style for kid- and pet-friendly homes. Swap the coffee table for a plush leather ottoman. Mix function and style by layering a cowhide over an indoor/outdoor rug. And throw in some fun accent pieces like cute baskets and kid’s chairs to make the space more family-friendly.

rustic style4. Make Rustic Feel Relaxed

You can’t go wrong combining rustic style with beachy vibes. Furnishings like a woven chair, a light-wood coffee table, and blue and white pillows are a surefire way to give any living space that relaxed-rustic, beach house look.

rustic style5. Try a Formal Rustic Look

You can also veer towards darker tones with rustic furnishings if you want a look that’s a tad more formal. The farmhouse-style bed mixed with black nightstands and an armoire, give this rustic style bedroom a more elevated atmosphere.

rustic style6. Try a Streamlined Rustic Look

Sometimes all you need are a few rough-hewn rustic touches to ground a space. It’s also the approach you want to take if you’re looking to mix in a few contemporary pieces. Here, the woven chair and basket and the wood-and-steel bookcase help to balance out the streamlined desk and rug for a charming yet cool work space.

rustic style7. Take a Bright Approach With Rustic

Most rustic furnishings come in natural and neutral shades – think back to the open leather armchairs, the woven poufs and sisal rugs, the gray and white pillows. Rustic furnishings go great with bold patterns and color. Not sure where to start? Try using blue and white with rustic pieces to brighten up a living space with rustic furnishings.

rustic style8. Take a Layered Approach With Rustic Style

Try layering different textures and materials to create a rustic look. Think cowhide rug and a jute rug, leather armchair and a carved wood-and-stone-table, a neutral sofa with pops of yellow. Mixing these different materials, colors, and elements will help create a warm rustic atmosphere in a room.

rustic style9. Go For Classic Rustic Warmth

If you’re looking to create that classic rustic style in your living room, pull in a mix of modern, industrial, and formal elements. This living room combines a modern rug and art, an industrial floor lamp, and a formal coffee table and armchair, which are all mixed together with a neutral sofa and a leather pouf. The result is a perfect cozy rustic living space that’s warm and inviting.
