Rustic Modern Decor for Country-Spirited Sophisticates

Rustic modern decor is gradually forming into a style in its own right. And although it doesn’t have any special rules, it certainly has its own formed recognizable aesthetic. Wooden beams, live edge and untreated wood elements in combination with mid-century modern furnishings is a rough picture of reference. But it’s quite accurate. The rest is all styling, really.

Rustic Meets Modern Luxury

If rustic style is all about using rough gems nature gave you, modern luxury allows you more leeway with decorations, materials, and finishes. And here is where the mix turns into a beautiful cocktail of polarizing textures and minute details.

The best thing about this mix is that you can dial down the luxury or the rustic part if you enjoy either aesthetic a bit more.

If you need a better reference for a luxury rustic modern style take a cue from chalets and cabins with their lush country interiors.

Sleek Modern Design With Rustic Elements

Modern style is pretty sleek, which cannot be said about rustic aesthetic. But you can still keep your interiors minimal when creating rustic modern decor. Just tone down on the wooden elements.

The result may not look as country-spirited, but it will still look pretty romantic. You can simply keep the beams and your modern home will still have the strong hint of country present.

Barnhouse Style

Barnhouse style with all those vaulted ceilings and wooden beams really feeds the notion of country. Even the urban loft apartment can look like a rustic dwelling if it’s fortunate enough to have beams.

A barnhouse style home looks especially great with modern and contemporary elements like lounge chairs, retro sofas, and minimal floor lamps.

Cabin & Barn Aesthetic

Following the barnhouse style is cabin aesthetic. Who doesn’t like the idea of their own cabin somewhere picturesque where there is no worry or trouble of a daily life? And though a cabin has a wild streak in its rustic charm there’s a lot to take from it.

Reclaimed wood walls and headboards, makeshift nightstands and cozy rugs should be the major elements of a cabin-style room. If you want a bit of luxury you can add in some fur throws, knitted pillows, or showy lighting fixtures.

Mid-Century Modern With a Hint of Rustic

Combining mid-century modern and rustic style is the best thing you can do for your decor since both of these may look pretty bland on their own. Together, however, they make a perfect combination of nostalgia and romanticism.

To instantly give your modern bedroom a rustic update opt for wood look tiles, reclaimed wood furniture, or a country style bed frame.

Rustic Modern Bathroom Decor

When it comes to creating rustic modern bathroom decor, it’s all about wood, really. Wooden texture alone, even if perfectly imitated by porcelain tiles, can make any bath look more country.

Barn doors are especially good at bringing rustic style to even the most modern interiors. Pair them with wooden vanity countertops and mirror frames and there you have it. A cozy and bright country bath.

Rustic Modern Style in Kitchen Design

Kitchen is the best place to begin your rustic renovation. You can start small with a couple of rough wooden floating shelves or a farm sink. Or you can go all out with brick veneers, natural wood cabinets, wooden countertops, and country cottage furnishings.

There are indeed so many avenues for change from lighting fixtures to backsplash. Also if your kitchen doesn’t have it, you have to create a window to make it feel truly rustic.

True Rustic Wooden Kitchens with a Hint of Modernity

A wood-clad kitchen doesn’t have to look dull and boring. Just add a few metallic accents and modern elements. It’s they that take these country cook rooms from blah to whoa!

Although industrial chic accents will stir your rustic kitchen in a different direction, you can always count on modern furnishings to bring it back to the rustic modern decor you’re striving for. Also take note of how good country cottage furnishings look next to sleek modern designs.

Rustic But Modern Dining Rooms

You can often hear or see people say ‘rustic but modern’. This is exactly what it looks like. For instance, it’s a dining room full of rough wood furniture, but it has wall-sized windows or pristine white walls. It is major elements of the two styles clashing in one room.

It can also be a juxtaposition of textures like wood and stainless steel or plaster and rusted metal. We also think molded plywood looks great next to natural untreated wood.

Refined Rustic Decor

Refined rustic decor is somewhere between rustic and modern luxury. It may have the elements of both, but it’s still more rustic than anything else. Think sophisticated furnishings paired with exposed stone, untreated wooden beams, and impeccably styled country style elements.

Sometimes even the most polished decor may give off a rustic vibe just because of how cleverly it’s styled. Think animal hides in sophisticated tones, quality shiny leather, and complex lighting fixtures.

Rustic modern decor is like a great taste combo that always works. Even if you don’t like them separately together you may find much more to appreciate about these two styles.

    These homes are stunning. My best friend recently moved into a new home and we are already talking about projects we wants to tackle together in his home. I think his house is perfect as it is but I won’t say no a any chance I get to run a saw and help out a friend. His home is a D.R. Horton home and they were great for him to work with. is where he went to find his new home and if it was great for him I hope it can be great for others.
