Rustic isn’t the same as it once was. The days of fusty dried flower arrangements, antlers over a stone fireplace, and acres of plaid are long gone.
The modern rustic look, at its heart, honours the structure of a house, from the roof beams to the brickwork. Earthy colours and rich textures, natural materials like wood and stone, and a building’s ruggedly handsome bones are all celebrated in this style. Emily Henson, a stylist, and Joanna Simmons, a blogger, take you through the Elements of the Modern Rustic look in this book. Pure Rustic is an elegant combination of clean lines and muted grey shades. Pop Rustic blends raw wood with neon pops and tongue-in-cheek artworks, while Bohemian Rustic combines texture and pattern with lush colour. Retro Rustic, on the other hand, exudes a laid-back vibe with beaten-up leather armchairs and brick floors. Details delves into textiles, furniture, fabric, and display, while Living Spaces demonstrates how the Modern Rustic style functions in every room of the home, as well as outdoors.
