Rustic style is typically a combination of multiple styles, such as what you’d find in a Tuscan, farmhouse, cottage, or, most commonly, log cabin. This means that there’s a focus on raw elements, heavy and stable woods, local artisan handiwork, exposure to the elements (perhaps through large windows or fireplaces), and darker features complemented by a neutral and earth-toned color palette, accented by perhaps a featured shade or two that is still natural but that coordinates. Think of a burnt orange, for example.

Rustic style is perhaps what you’d imagine if you stepped into a luxury log cabin. Imagine exposed wood poles, natural textures in the linens, dark stained woods, and an emphasis on cozy, warm, passed-down furniture pieces that are sturdy and timeless. Though some people may perceive rustic as more masculine than feminine, that doesn’t have to be the case. If you pair rustic pieces with warm tones, cozy touches, and other elements that make your space feel welcoming, a rustic space can make your home feel like a relaxing vacation by the lake every day.

J’adore!!! French materials were sourced to give authenticity to this French farmhouse kitchen located in Scottsdale. The reclaimed oak beams, limestone flooring and countertop from Provence, with locally sourced fieldstone walls, are a brilliant blend of materials that make for a most spectacular French country kitchen environment!

Though you might be picturing a great living room with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and oversized, exposed structures, perhaps you haven’t thought of another room that looks absolutely amazing with a rustic design: the kitchen.

Rustic has become more popular in recent years thanks to designers such as Chip and Joanna Gaines, who incorporate a lot of rustic style into their minimal but modern designs. In addition, a return to nature and the outdoors is increasingly more common; think of the trend in glamping, or the classic family vacation at the cabin.

Hectic weeks make me super thankful for cozy twinkling lights and TAKE OUT!!! Not much cooking happening around here this week, but hey. Kitchen stays more clean that way. 😉😂 What have you been up to this Thursday? Shopping, decorating, baking, cooking, working, or all of the above?!?! . . I kept our Christmas decor super simple in the kitchen; it’s just too busy of a place in our home! But some fresh greenery, a candle from @oak.hill.farms , and little table top tree was all it needed to feel extra cheerful! . . #farmhousekitchen #christmaskitchen #tistheseason #galleykitchen #betterhomesandgardens #bhghome #bhghowiholiday #countrylivingmag #kitchenremodel #kitchenrenovation #modernfarmhouse #industrialfarmhouse #kitchenisland #custombuild #concretecountertops #robynsfrenchnest #kitchendecor #rusticmodern #rustickitchen #pendantlights #mycountryhome #cottagesandbungalows

Remember that you can get inspiration from spaces that are a relatively similar size and shape to your own. Once you nail down exactly what you want the end result to look like (perhaps through creating a mood or inspiration board), you can begin choosing your new appliances and pieces.

Remember to consider other rooms of your home, and ensure that the space is cohesive. It doesn’t necessarily have to match, but it does have to flow. On top of that, piece together the appliances and fixtures that appeal most to you, and make sure that they work together. Keep in mind that one or two statement pieces are often enough to communicate the style of a room. You don’t need every single item to scream rustic, but you do need to ensure that everything you choose around it will work with what you’ve chosen.
