Hello! I love it when the day comes to feature a contributing writer! We always discuss what topic would be interesting to the readers, and this month Michelle came up with the idea of rustic style and how it’s making a comeback in a new way.
Take it away Michelle!
“What do you think of when you hear the phrase "rustic décor?" Do you think of log cabins, plaid flannel, and grizzly bear rugs? Well, think again! The current design trends in rustic décor are chic, romantic, and anything but predictable or kitschy.
Gone are those dark wood paneled walls from the seventies. These days, smart architects and designers instead think upward. Open wood beams are one way of putting natural wood on display and channeling a rustic vibe when the rest of the space is decorated with traditional or modern furnishings. The beams provide an interesting and rich contrast which draws the eye up.
