Juxtaposing elegance with a weathered, outdoorsy look has led to the creation of the latest design craze: rustic-chic decor.

You wouldn't believe just how pretty adding a touch of glam to a barn-inspired room really works.

I've put together some gorgeous ideas to help give your pad a down home country feel that's anything but rugged.

Take a look at these beautiful rustic-chic decor ideas:

1. Weathered Picture Frames

An easy way to achieve rustic-chic decor is with large, distressed picture frames.

The best places to shop for these (and almost every item for this design style) are at an antique shop or thrift store.2

Chances are that frames in these stores will already have an aged, weathered look, but if you're having a tough time finding what you're looking for, buy regular wooden frames from the store, paint them in one layer of white, then coarsely sand over the paint for the distressed look.

You can either arrange them on the wall with no pictures inside, or change the filter on your pictures to "sepia" for a more aged look.

2. Barn Doors


Sliding barn doors are super popular these days and totally transform the look of a room.

You can actually buy these in home improvement stores, or have them custom made for an even more original look.

3. Chandeliers

Hanging a glitzy, crystal-clad chandelier in a distressed room screams rustic-chic.

It's really unexpected, which makes it stand out that much more.

What's more?

The money you save on reclaimed wood and antique pieces can be applied to a killer Versailles-style chandelier.

4. Natural Wood

The key to rustic-chic is steering clear of stains and glosses.

All-natural wood is the best way to go and looks absolutely stunning, especially when used in conjunction with other natural wood pieces.

When choosing hardwood floors for your room, go for something a bit more distressed with wide planks.

The distressed look is a bonus for homes with kids, animals, and of course high heels.
