The history of Rustic design can be traced back in the 19th century where people made their homes far away from the cities. As people settled and made their homesteads, their homes were quickly put together with materials found locally.
Rustic is the contrasting design for modern or contemporary design. Design emphasis is on simple, natural and organic that has an earthy feel about it. Raw materials are also common, so rather than finding a sleek, glossy burl wood, decor pieces are made from real wood, sometimes only lightly treated or entirely natural. Rustic decor in and of itself appears to be heavier, darker, and less sparse.
Metals can also be seen in this style. Wrought metals, hammered or distress finishes may be incorporated into your living space in various ways depending on personal style and preference.
“Rustic design, at its core, is the use of organic elements in their most natural state.” - Katie Hodges.
The main consideration of this style are the following:
Comfort and warmth
A lot of textural variety
Practicality and purpose
Emphasis on natural and organic (materials and colour palette)
In summary, rustic should be on the material, not the design, therefore many pieces are incredibly simple yet naturally beautiful.
Rustic versus Farmhouse Design Style
Rustic and farmhouse design styles share some similarities. Both have a focus on comfort and simplicity, however how they achieve those goals is different. Farmhouse is simple but still relies on refined elements, with just a couple of rougher pieces to add charm. On the other hand, Rustic design style is the opposite, most elements are raw or unfinished.
